    you mean noone wants to go to lewisham bowl?

    that place sounds alright, along with being less than half hour from here.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Looks good to me:)

    So if we did go Bowling on say a Saturday what sort of time would most people want to go?

    Cos they charge different rates at different times.

    But works out about £5 per person per hour (assuming 6 people per lane)

    I'd suggest in my personal opinion lunch timeish as 12-2 It'll give people a chance to get down/up there and travel sorted out, I also suggest if it happens we meet somewhere before hand as I don't think they'd like a bunch of people waiting around for others to arrive. Maybe a pub or bar. just somewhere where everyone could meet before they head off to the bowling,

    Just a suggestion anyone. Proberlly stupid though.

    There is a bar in that venue, also about 30 pool tables!!

    Personally to meet getting their lunch time sounds well early to me, espacially if you've been clubbing the night before .. LOL :D

    I'd have said more like meetup at around 2pm and start bowling around 3pm?? Then after that people can chat or play pool, etc.

    I suppose the younger ones may be under a curfew?? Although since the clocks has gone forward at least that's an extra hour of sunlight.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yeah Well I did suggest 12-2 sounds good..

    curfew wouldn't be a problem for alot but some of us who might have to travel some way might have to get last trains etc and could be akward.

    Pool tables:) fun.. Sounds fun but depends If I have the money as I've got to go see my gf soon so moneys bit thin at the moment:(

    Depending on people's schedules I suppose it may be possible to book two lanes at two different times, like maybe 3pm to 4pm for the young ones and those who need to get home early and then maybe a bit later on at maybe 6pm to 7pm, I'm sure the rest of us can easily kill off two hours inthe bar or playing pool?? .. comments please?

    Finsbury Park is the nearest tube station.

    I've never been there but I am going to London on Sunday so could check it out then. I might even be going sooner into London just need to check my schedule.

    But if we do book it people will need to stump up the deposit at the very least which is 25% of the full total or £1.25 if they intend to play for 1 hour or £2.50 if they intend to play for two hours.

    It costs £30 per hour to play for upto 6 people inc. enterance and shoe hire. So totals will be £5 per person per hour (Assuming we get exactly 6 people per lane)

    Try NoChex, cheapest way I think www.nochex.com

    I've been using for ages to buy stuff in auctions, etc.

    But first better get everyone to confirm their most likely to attend dates and times. We seem to be having more response from people that live miles away then the peple who actually live in London.

    BTW if anyone wants to stay over night in London the Generator Hostel is pretty cool and has a bar until 2am, although no residents are no longer able to go in since thaey put a big bouncer on the door.
