The Main Event! (current event plans and ideas)

I thought I'd create a new thread that could be used as a "general purpose" stage for planning random events and get-togethers (like the holiday gatherings, and that hotel party we had just before New Year's). That way we don't end up doing things like planning the hotel party in the holiday gathering thread, or planning a bowling event in the hotel party thread ;-) Hopefully that'll also reduce "thread clutter" so that we don't need a new thread for everything. We can just use this thread for whatever we're all trying to put together next.

OK, to start this thread off, it seems like we're trying to get a bowling outing together around Valentine's Day. From a cursory glance over the hotel party thread, I didn't see any specific places that anyone had suggested, unless I missed something...

Just a suggestion for a place, Taylor Lanes in Taylor is one of the best bowling alleys I've been to. They host the PBA there, it's a LARGE alley with a TON of lanes. The only thing about it is that it's in Taylor, which is downriver.

But that's where I go normally.

Well, it's a bit of a hike for some of us, but then so is just about every event that the group tries to organize!

Oh, and I mentioned in my last post that it seemed like we were trying to plan the event for Valentine's Day. I think I was mistaken. If I recall the posts in the other thread correctly, I think we were thinking about some day over the weekend before Valentine's Day, so that it would be easier for more of us to come (which, if you ask me, is an excellent idea).

Laser tag might be a problem for some of us. You typically have to wear sensors and a little gear when playing laser tag, and some of us might not be able to wear that over our costumes.

Well, my latest costume is a bright-ish blue suit, and Maria's is a green seifuku... I think we'll be spotted easily ;-)

One thing to keep in mind about Taylor Lanes is they have a lot of league bowling, which might interfer with planning times and such.

Heh really. Those are great but very bold costumes!

Somehow as much fun as I'd think it'd be to play wearing Link, I know it'd again, be so easily spotted. Aside from that, armor-free of course ^_~. Well, hmm.. on the other hand I could always wear the shield and reflect lasers back at people shooting me You getting a negative score = I win!
