    Just thought Ild ask, how many games of bowling we planning?

    I suppose it all depends on how long we are gonna be bowling for. cause I went today and we had 5 people in a lane, two games... took under an hour. Im cool for anything but I thought I'd might as well throw it out there

    we had talked about having a couple of games (?) of bowling, which with the amount of people attending should take us a fair while. then back to mine for utter chaos.

    tim, dbr88, chris and jon, am i meeting you lot in town outside forbidden planet at 11-ish still? is that makeable for you all?


    if the weather is on our side i'll drag the barbecue out, so if you want a steak or anything special we can get you to a shop, but anything else like burgers and hot dogs and such, both veggie and normal, will be laid on.



    and don't forget to bring booze*!! <-----------possibly the most important criteria :D



    *we should have a load of pop for those who don't drink ;)

    No need to worry about me, I can get to your place easy enough. I just suggested going to to New Street so Rob wouldn't get too lost, but looks like he will have enough company now. :p

    So I'll just appear at yours around 11... for now. [face_mischief]

    Bowling is 10 mins per person per game.

    So 3 lanes of 6 people playing 2 games is 2 hours :)

    I'll be there from 11ish

    Take a look at this

    Go down to flexi-bowl party package.
    Looking for a great value party
    for six or more people?
    Look no further than our
    Flexi-Bowl Party Packages

    From only £10.00 per person


    BOWLING
    Everybody enjoys two games of bowling each. The winner receives a 'champions' certificate and bottle of bubbly and, unfortunately, the lowest scorer picks up the title of 'worst bowler' and the accompanying certificate!
    Only £10.00 per person
    Something like that sounds alright for a tenner.

    But if we went for three regular games, it's £14.75 each.

    Personally, I think 2 games each would be enough. What do you guys think?

    Party option sounds superb to me. Just what we're looking for :D

    I'm the same, pay on the day if that's OK. No debit/credit card makes online payments a ******* nightmare!

    Still very much up for this. It'll be expensive but boy! It should be good!!


    I'll be the bald guy ([face_worried] I'm worried now!) walking around Birmmingham lost with a rucksack full of booze (for you guys) and a sleeping bag in the other arm.

    Oh and I got my present today. Just need to wrap it. They didn't have what I wanted, but one Sci-Fi nut is going to pop their collar when they see how cool this is!

    EDIT: Video camera will hopefully be in attendance! Get ready!

    Damn, £5 a game of bowling? It's expensive over there!

    But my winning certificate will be well worth it :p

    I take it it's okay to bring my own bowling shoes and ball? :D

    Count me out for the bowling at the moment I'm afraid. Still dont know for sure how feesable this is. If I do manage it I can just sit and watch and not be humiliated :p

    Being at the FF-UK: Midlands 1st Birthday Party - Priceless :cool: :D

    Wiz, not sure how many vegetarians are gonna be there aside for me, but I'll get some veggie sausages (1-2 packs), and a pack of veggie burgers too (they are Cauldron, best type I have found so far). I need to get a cooler bag of some sort, think I saw a nice one in M&S. I'll bring a pack of SW top trumps for people to play with too.

    Anything else I am forgetting, aside for myself?
