View Full Version : Holiday Bowling!

11-23-2013, 12:53 PM
Hi, gang!

Let's plan an afternoon to get together, meet, greet and catch up! (as well as just take some time to relax during this crazy-busy season...)

How does some bowling sound? There is a good alley near me in West Seattle and weekends in December are pretty open as far as lane reservations.

What do folks think of Sunday, the 8th OR Sunday the 15th?

Please respond soon so I can get an idea of head count and day preference!

Thank you so much! Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Well I'am not sure how relaxing a drive to west seattle would be just before christmas or any other time for that matter, how about ballard or the north end somewhere? would that work ?...jh

Not many alleys left, none in Ballard. I'd say W. Seattle is a good spot but I don't really know what's up north. I'd say crank up the Christmas muzak and go with the flow.

I'm in! Either date works for me.

Yes, let me know if there is a specific alley I should look into on the North end! I know that bowling alleys are sort of a dying breed in the city, but the West Seattle spot is one that I know of.

I think there is Kenmore Lanes on Bothell Way in Kenmore. I've driven by it a million times, but have never been there.

There are still many bowling alleys around Seattle. Off the top of my head there's one in Greenwood at 105th and one in Edmonds as you head to the ferry. The one in Ballard gave up the ghost a few years ago. But I'm OK with West Seattle too. It's just a hop, skip, and a jump over I-90 for anyone coming over from the east side. In fact it is almost all freeway to get there. Parking is the only thing I recall about West Seattle that was a bit of a drag.

I'm open to either day, but will verify with Lila what works best for her.

Lei Lani Lanes in Greenwood closed in 2005. You gotta get out more often! :D

I think since Joanna is coordinating the event we should stick with W. Seattle. It's not really a car show type event so feel free to drive your nice, modern car. We'll be inside bowling anyway.

There are 2 bowling alleys still operating in South Everett. But I agree with Kenny.

Wow... I guess so...

I'll be on that end of town anyway, so I'm fine with WS Bowl.

So, Joanna...how about the 15th if Roger's gal says that works for her? As soon as I know the details, I will post it on our Facebook page and send out an invite.

Let's just choose the 15th. I'm sure it'll be OK. Better than the 8th, since we have something the night before to go to.

11-25-2013, 05:05 PM
Ok, what time?

I can't believe nobody mentioned The Garage (http://garagebilliards.com).

As much as I like the location, I could stumble there and probably get Jeff out too, The garage is pricey. Parking is also a big issue in that area.

Hi, gang! OK, I have us booked for Sunday the 15th at 1:00! I have 3 lanes reserved so hopefully that will do it!

See everyone soon...

Just a bump to remind anyone who want's to go that the Falcon Bowl-o-rama is this Sunday. The club is paying for the lanes and shoe rental (unless you're Fred Flintstone) so come on down!

I'm bringing a very special bowling ball...

12-13-2013, 09:20 PM
I can't be there so take a lot of photos.

See everyone there!!

And if you're coming from the north, keep in mind that the Alaska Way Viaduct on Hwy 99 is closed this weekend!

Any update for us out of towers? Hope y'all had fun. :D

What kind of towers you looking for?

12-16-2013, 03:07 PM
I was going to ask the same thing. I only know of shock towers when it comes to Falcons. If you are out of towers that usually means you are doing a Mustang II style front suspension, but I thought you were doing just a rack and pinion upgrade.

Damn spell check. Why can't it just type what mean. .?? :bicker:

We were just yanking your chain... [thumb]

Not many showed up bowling. Kenny, Joanna and Randy (AKA Joandy), and Lila and I. I came in last place and Joandy in first place. Still won a prize, so not complaining.

Sorry more of you didn't make it. Maybe next year we can do something everyone is up for or can make.

I like the location... but had a work obligation come up. Sounds like you guys had fun. Sorry I missed your special bowling ball.

I did as well, I had to catch a train to BC... eh! Holiday time is always tough

12-16-2013, 10:37 PM
Forgot I loaned the ball out to a friend. Drove all the way to get it, couldn't find it, thought it got stolen, then as we were driving away Lila said - "Hey, we loaned it to Karen!"


Getting old is a drag sometimes.

And why am I so sore today?
