The mighty Cupcakes?
What`s up Rochester!! I`m Jeff from the North Ridge (some of you know me a little). Anyway, about the possible trophy. What would you guys think of a nicer trophy that we buy only once and play for possession of it every year? Just a thought.
Posted a reply over on the Buffalo thread...
The North Ridge
Anyone else thinking of bowling?
Longbino talked with a friend that owns a trophy store here in Buffalo. He managed to secure a trophy for us for the event. There will be plenty of room to add more engraving plates for years to come!
We'll bring it on Sunday.
That sounds awesome! Thanks!
I know this hasnt been discussed yet but should we establish a linkup point?
This way we can travel as one with as few cars as needed.
I was just thinking about that this morning when I was hearing about all the snow that we are getting. It might be better to have as few cars on the road as possible. We should have room for at least 1 person in our car.
It looks like maybe Tinseltown might be a good meet-up spot based on our route from Greece to Batavia. I don't know how that'd work for anyone else.
I can meet at T-Town.
You figure 11:30-12 meetup time?
That sounds about right. Mapquest is estimating a 45 minute drive time from Greece. So I'd want to leave Tinseltown at 12pm at the latest, maybe earlier depending on how bad the roads/weather is.
Well we've got two or three days to go.
Lets let everyone else chime in and see if its a good meetup spot?
Thundertank is driving this time. She's been on the shelf for a few events so I'll drive this one.
I can go bowling
Sounds good to me
I'm gonna hop on the thruway at the Geneva/Lyons exit and then go up that way.
i'd say 11:30 to meet ig give people a chance to run a bit late also to stave off past issues lets nail down everyone who's meeting at t-town & get phone #'s so we can contact who ever we are waiting on. to see where they are. We'll have at leaset 2 wseats in the Astec
Here's what we have so far:
Meeting at Tinseltown
Not meeting at Tinseltown
I'd love to see more bowlers too. Does anyone know if Ayka & Akayeon were thinking of coming? MadKidJedi? Anyone else?
ok it looks like we're all connected by phone except for Jeff does anyone have his #?
I think Duane and Lisa are driving on their own. It was mentioned in chat last night but I'll wait for them to confirm or deny.
We will be driving ourselves. We have to drop off the kiddies, we will see you in Batavia at 1 PM Sunday.
Duane - do you know what vehicle you will be taking?
I'm hoping to coordinate getting some hydrostone from the buffalo folks.
I can put some of it in my trunk, but 1-100lbs bags might be a bit much for one vehicle.
the back of the aztec can take 1 or 2 bags
I can probably haul some too. I may be running a little bit late getting out there as I have another appt Sunday morning for my back.
Since we won't have Connor with us we don't need to drive the Avalon, but being a larger car it might be able to carry hydrostone better than the Thundertank. So if no one else is going in the Thundertank - Wingnut maybe you should just ride with us - assuming you're staying for the dinner after the bowling.
Speaking of which I made reservations for our group at the Pontillo's down the street from the bowling alley. I told them we'd probably be there 3:45pm-ish and they don't close until 11pm so we can hang out and talk for a while without worrying about them closing early on a Sunday. And, for point of trivia - it's actually the 1st Pontillo's restaurant ever.
If space is available in the Avalon of course I will join the Avalon team.
And of course I'm staying for dinner definately
