We should probably identify potential places to bowl first, before we settle on any dates. It seems like that will be the more restrictive factor here.

I found a site that lists some bowling alleys around Michigan (I just don't know if they still exist^^) If any of these sound interesting, I could call them tomorrow; I have the day free so I'll have time to call around (yay for no school or work!)

Anways, here's the site http://www.bowlersphere.com/articles...s_michigan.htm

Is it one we'd be able to use on a Friday evening, Saturday, or Sunday?

Sorry for double posting, but here's the info for Novi Bowl:

Open bowling starts at 9 am on Friday and Saturdays. It costs $3.48 per bowler, per game and $2.95 to rent a pair of shoes. Since we'll probably be a large party, we'll want to make sure we reserve the lanes ahead of time and they require a $25 deposit to make sure the lanes will be availible when we get there (and I can reserve the lanes if you need me too.) They don't have a problem with large parties, so long as we don't act like total fools (no trashing the place or throwing bowling balls at each other, stuff like that.)

If this place sounds good to everyone, we'll want to choose a date and get a rough count of how many people will be going so we'll know how many lanes to reserve.

Open bowling all day on those days? That would be perfect in that case. So who can make it for some cosplay bowling on a currently indeterminate Friday evening or Saturday? You guys can put me down, and probably Maria and Tom as well.

Depending on how many people are going it may be cheaper to simply rent lanes rather then buying games. Often times with 3 people or more, renting a lane and getting in 2 games will give you you're monies worth, so the more people, the cheaper a game would be. (all dependant on the lanes of course and amount of people going, and number of lanes rented)

I would look into prices for renting a lane for an hour during the times/days we'd be wanting to go. Which may have been discused and I might have missed it.

If I'm picking Tom up, then I can drive you too, since you both live in the same area.

Cool. That's the alley I thought of but I didn't know it still existed. So is this going to still be an in-costume event or not? Either way is cool, but I'm just thinking what everyone will wear should we be in garb.

Sounds like we can cosplay for this. There doesn't seem to be any reason why not. Not like we'd be causing a problem at the place simply by wearing costumes. We just have to behave ourselves!

I would say yes to the costumes, but no to any weapons or armor. Besides that fact, try not to wear bie elaborate shoes because we're going to be wearing bowling shoes...LoL!

I'm sure there'll be no problem with us cosplay, just as long as we don't give them a reason to be pissed-off or kick us out or something.

I plan on reserving the lanes sometime Friday (unless it's going to take long for us to figure out about how many people will be going.) When I call, I'll ask about prices for lanes per hour, like ngsilver suggested.
