Title: Lane Splitting Event - July 15
Post by: Volcantour on May 23, 2017, 10:35:19 pm
CHANGE OF DATE!!!     MOVED TO JULY 15      CHANGE OF DATE!!!     MOVED TO JULY 15      CHANGE OF DATE!!!
If you can Spare the time, come on out to Galaxy Bowling in Blairsville to Strike up a conversation with friends while splitting lanes without getting Framed by the authorities. (As if abusing these terms won't get one arrested!)

COG member Stan Tyler is graciously opening his establishment in Blairsville early on July 15th for this event. Come enjoy some great times with friends away from the summer heat. The event starts at 10 AM with reduced fees for bowling and no charge for shoes or other equipment. (It is a COG event, after all).  :))

Register here, please, so we can be prepared on the day of the event;

Who knows? Might even be an excuse to get to the mountains a day early... :motonoises:

Well looks like Tom took a different approach and threw a curve ball at us right into the pocket. He usually fouls while missing his mark and hitting on the Brooklyn side.

So, is anyone going to actually bowl or just hang out. Do I need to get my balls out and clean them?  :rotflmao:

  All jokes aside I would love to see a good turnout.
  Guys it will be warm er hot weather and so itll be a greta place to get out of the heat.
  I found that the last RTE time got by way to fast . Its nice to hang out with fellow COGers and put some faces to the names.
  If you have a family bring em we will all have a good time bowling,laughing,lying :great:
  We have hamburgers,hot dogs,quesadillas, pretzels, fries/onion rings , ect
   Then if yall wish we can go for a ride. Any direction is good from here. :)

You going to oil the lanes for us? League shot? PBA pattern?

Do we have any decent COG bowlers to provide some level of competition??

Striking out for an early morning ride in the N. Georgia mountains =  :great:
Hanging out and meeting new and old COGgers =  :great:
Yep, it's a bit different, but if you've got the balls, why not?  :)

Stan,

We appreciate the offer for the venue. I would actually like to bowl but would enjoy it more if I was able to bowl with my fellow COG members. So, how about if we meet at 10am and start bowling at 11am? Bowl a couple hours and have some lunch while bowling?

Kurt that sounds good to me. If there is  some competition then that makes it even better. I didnt know if there are any serious bowlers coming or not but I can sure run some lanes for us if so.  Probably be best to put out our league house shot.

From what I've heard there are at least three good bowlers thinking about it (I'm NOT one of them), so it might be interesting. I can be enthusiastic, but not good and can certainly be easily entertained by the attempts of others....

Time to sign...(done)

I think I'll come up on Saturday morning, catch some breakfast at Hole in the Wall about 9 then roll on over to Stan's place. Anybody want to meet up in Gainesville.?Maybe we could rendezvous at the QuickTrip on 129@I-985 exit 20 if you are coming from the south or if you're coming from HotLanta up 400, maybe the Home Depot in Dahlonega. Post up and we'll work on a time/place.

I'm a horrible bowler, but I do like to watch good bowling (or in this case, "bowling.") :))

Sorry guys. I looks like I might have to miss this one as I have 7:30-3:30 House Build day with Habitat for Humanity. Seems like I will miss the fun and skip embarrasment from my awful bowling!

Thank you for your service to Habitat (I am a past President of our local chapter). We will hopefully see you at another event soon. In the meantime, ride safe!

Thanks!

Guys ill be there around 9 so we can  bowl whenever we want to start no real time constraint.
 I had said 2 bucks per game but in hindsight this is just for fun COG event this will be no charge bowling. see yall there.

 :) :)  What a fun time!  Cindy and I had a terrific time!  Those of you who didn't come really missed some fun. Many, many thanks to Stan and Dee for hosting this event.    :great: We had a (relatively) small turn-out (6 plus Stan and Dee) but a really good time was had by all.  ;D

Stan and Dee opened their business early JUST FOR COG!   :PDT_Armataz_01_37:We had the whole place to ourselves so it wasn't too embarrassing for those of us whose bowling experience is (ahem) modest or, in my case, virtually non-existent. ;)

It was interesting that the one guy talking all the "smack" didn't show up. Yes, Kurt Brown. I'm talking about you. When it came right down to the real nitty-gritty, you bailed. ::)  :D   :104:  :hee20hee20hee:

Again, many thanks to Stan and Dee.  Let's do this again sometime!  :13: :08:
Title: Re: Lane Splitting Event - July 15
Post by: ron203 on July 15, 2017, 08:53:07 pm
+1

Katie and I had LOTS of fun. We laughed more than we had since, well in a long time! The good news is my bowling is as good as it was when I was 20, bad news is that it's still bad!! But it was fun and low key and Stan and Dee were terrific hosts!!   (VERY nice place, btw.)
Totally great ride up and back, with just a touch of cooling rain. NICE!!! 

Great idea Tom and Stan.

Thanks all.

  We had a great time and made some friends . Time just got by way too fast.
  Tom , Phil, Jim, Cindy, Ron ,and Katie it was a pleasure to hang out with all you guys.
  Like Ron said "friendships are formed in small groups"  I understand what he meant know.
  I look forward to seeing yall at the RWTW.
 Lets do this again.

Pictures (known as 'evidence') are on the way. Thankfully, there are none of the scoreboard. Let's just say that some of us are Holey Rollers when it comes to bowling - if there's a hole between the pins and the gutter then that's where she rolls. In attendance were Smokestack Stan and Dee Tyler, Ron and Katie Simmons, Jim and Cindy Culp, Phil Rockwell (all the way from Columbus!!), and yours truly.

Stan and Dee, you rock as hosts  :great:. Thank you for putting up with us at this function where for many of us form was, well, sorely lacking. Except for our fearless SE COG AD as seen in the example below  :))  We clearly had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the company as well as great food from the grill. I can see us doing this again down the road.
