Just a heads up. In the April 14 meeting cancellation, I referenced a theme for our CONvergence 2018 hospitality suite. We are NOT doing “Spectre of the Gun.” So NO gunslingers, sheriffs or Wyatt Earps. This was just a way to get people thinking about our commitment to a creative and busy event. So be ready when the actual theme is announced! We’ll need everyone’s eyes, hands and hearts ready to get involved.
Thanks for joining us for the 513th bowling party...at least I think we've had that many! Just to let those that couldn't attend know what happened:
Jack Langhoff scored big and Phill Goldman did too. And sweet Jenna Cruz was kind enough to laugh with our need to practice award this year!
18 people bowled at least 2 games each, everyone seemed to have a great time trying to out score themselves and everyone else as well!
It also seemed to be voted that we have another bowling party in 2018. Therefore look for the next one after our 2018 Sept. general membership meeting! Join a league and start practicing so you can touch the USS Nokomis bowling trophy and have your picture taken! Peanut gallery be ready to cheer!
Following our October 2016 General Membership meeting we will again have free/open bowling at St. Francis School (see the map for the general meeting location--we'll stay there). Because we have a busy meeting we will start promptly at noon so that the bowling can start at 2 pm. We have the facility until 5 pm--enough time to wear everyone out. Those of us that don't fling the weighted spheres cheer from the sidelines as well as play games.
Remember! We invite our friends from local fandom to this meeting so be spiffy!! We will be pick out a restaurant to compare scores afterwards.
There's a signup sheet for the whole event, give it a look-see.
Free balls, $1.00 shoes, free bowling--what's not to love!
We're done bowling for another year. I hope you all had fun. I wasn't able to see everyone because of work, but I didn't get lost on my way to St. Francis this time so I had time to visit with many of you!!
My able assistant, Shannon Hill, was kind enough to track scores for us. Many took part in flinging spheres, all had fun, but a couple reached the top!! Phill Goldman was first this year with 189, Jack Langhoff was second with 134. Now everyone knows what to shoot for next year.
Yes, we are planning another bowling party/general meeting/potluck in 2016. Go ahead, get together, practice. Maybe you will win the Dairy Queen gift card next year!
Following our September 2015 General Membership meeting we will again have free/open bowling at St. Francis School(see the map for the general meeting location--we'll stay there). Because we have a busy September meeting we will start promptly at noon so that the bowling can start at 2 pm. We have the facility until 5 pm--enough time to wear everyone out. Those of us that don't fling the weighted spheres cheer from the sidelines as well as play games.
Remember this is a POTLUCK--bring your specialty to share! We invite our friends from local fandom to this meeting so be spiffy!! This is also a good meeting to bring folks that are interested in our club since we will be reviewing our activities for the next year!
Free balls, free shoes, free bowling--what's not to love!
Scavenger hunts have been a fun challenge for us in the past, so let's do another!
Rosedale will be our new destination...hopefully you haven't memorized it yet!
You can choose your own team: no more than 3 per team, one photograph-taking item
per team, no previously-established couples, and at least one guy per team. So go out
there and recruit each other! Harrison and Shannon will give you your clues and send
you off for 45 minutes of 'scavenging'.
We'll meet 45 minutes later by Ruby Tuesday. You can turn in your answers and photo
equipment and any bribes for the judges then. Good luck!
Because of the low number that signed up to attend, Karen and Mark have cancelled the post 45 Distillery Open House potluck at the cabin.
You can still go to the open house, though!!! It is New Richmond, WI, and the events at the distillery start at noon!
Thanks for keeping us in the know!
