    I saw this over on the North Ridge board. I am very interested in this. We used to bowl on a league a number of years ago. I'm just not sure if we'd be able to get a regular baby-sitter.

    It looks like it's happening thru the AMF centers. I just looked real quick & Olympic & Terrace Gardens both have infor (not Much ) on Thier Site. It looks like a 25$ registration Fee & $13 dollars a week. but you get the bag & ball. I don't think it's a bad deal.

    Edit......Here's more info from our friends in Buffalo.....

    I got details and sign-up sheets tonight at bowling. Here are the details:

    The league goes every week for 18 weeks.
    The league is either every Saturday at 1:00pm or Sunday at 4:00pm.
    The league starts either on Sept. 10th (Sat.) or Sept. 11th (Sun.).
    The league costs $12.99 per week. This includes either a bag and ball or the Jedi package that includes a life-size Darth Vader standee, a Star Wars cap, and an exclusive set of six movie poster replications - one for each Star Wars episode - previously only released to movie theaters.

    I have information and sign-up sheets from Rose Bowl Lanes on Harlem and Mineral Springs in West Seneca. If anyone wants to bowl at another AMF Center, such as Thruway or Lancater Lanes, let me know and I will get information on the Star Wars Strike Force league at that house.

    There is a registration fee of $25.00, which will be applied to your total league fees.

    I think KnightShade and I would be interested if we can get a steady babysitter. Personally, I'd prefer Gates Lanes since it's closer to me, but would probably still participate if it was elsewhere. It looks like all the AMF lanes have the same generic info on their individual sites. I'm curious how many folks will sign up for this league or will we just be bowling against ourselves?

    I'd probably be in! Stormtrooper ball for me DUH! I don't like the league times though........... I'd perfer Olympic based on lane conditions. Gates is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy to oily. My average dropped 21 pins bowling at Gates :-(.

    A Jedi Team and an Imperial Team....


    Just battle every single week. That'd be fun :)

    I just noticed that Princess Leia is on the opposite side of the Padme ball (which makes sense I guess...). Initially I was going to go for Boba Fett, but now I'm torn between that and Leia. Although... I really don't like pink. :p I guess I'd really have to see these things in person.

    I am a novice bowler but I do enjoy it. Sounds like fun but probably could not afford it.

    Oh I am so a novice bowler too, I hope that if we do actually get a team formed that no one expects us to win anything :) except maybe the horses ass trophy for coming in last :)

    AMF now has something on their site mentioning a free "3-D VividVision" poster, just for signing up (while supplies last) by July 30th.

    So who's seriously considering this, keeping in mind it's once a week for 18 weeks and will cost a little under $250.
    What are folks preferences on day/time to bowl? It looks like our only choices are Sat at 1pm or Sun at 4pm. I think I would vote for Sunday myself. Sat at 1pm is just too smack dab in the middle of the day. Once we figure that out then we'd then need to form up into teams of 4.

    TD-027 voted for Olympic and I think KS and I are fine with that.

    KnightShade took a call from Terrace Gardens this morning. I filled out an online form for more info on the SW league, maybe the request got sent to them because they're closest to me? Not sure... but here's the info they gave. It's for The Incredibles league (which is what they thought I signed up for :confused:, but supposedly it's the same info...

    16 weeks
    starts Oct 11th
    options of Sat at 1pm, Sun at 3pm or Wed at 6:30pm
    $10.99 a week
    you don't get the ball until the end

    I can call Olympic and confirm that they have the same details.

    Hi,

    Here's the information that AMF Olympic Lanes (1350 Scottsville Road) faxed me earlier this week:

    Registration fee is $25 (which will be applied to your local league fees). Norma of Olympic Lanes thought that if we registered by July 31st., that we would be eligible for the "free Star Wars collectible '3-D VividVision' poster", however, she could not find a date to verify that.

    Teams of 2. Norma thought it was only 2 games per night, but it could be 3. Shoes are included in the price. You get the ball at the end and will be able to choose design and weight. She thought it was only a plastic ball, but did not know if drilling of the holes was included - that would be up to the pro shop.

    14 weeks of bowling starting:

    Monday, 9/19/05 6:30 p.m. - adult and jr (under 18)
    Tuesday, 9/20/05 4:00 p.m. - jr only
    Tuesday, 9/20/05 9:00 p.m. - adults only
    Wednesday, 9/21/05 4:00 p.m. - jr only
    Wednesday, 9/21/05 9:00 p.m. - adults only
    Sunday, 9/25/05 10:30 a.m. - jr only
    Sunday, 9/25/05 10:30 a.m. - adult and jr
    Sunday, 9/25/05 5 p.m. - adult and jr

    Pricing:
    Package - Jr (under 18) - Adult + jr - adult - adult with no merch.
    Ball - $10.99 - $21.99 - $11.99 - NA
    Jedi - $9.99 - $19.99 - $10.99 - NA
    No Merch. - NA - NA - NA - $5.99

    Ball package includes a choice from 6 ball designs "in an exclusively designed Star Wars ball bag and an award certificate."
    The Jedi package "includes a life-size Darth Vader standee, a Star Wars cap and an exclusive set of six movie poster reproductions - one for each Star Wars episode - previously only released to movie theaters."

    Cool! Thanks for the info! I haven't had the time to follow up on that yet.
    Unless we have someone under 18 interested in bowling with us - am I reading it correctly that our bowling options are:

    Monday at 6:30pm (starting 09/19)
    Tuesday at 9pm (starting 09/20)
    Wednesday at 9pm (starting 09/21)
    Sunday at 10:30am (starting 09/25)
    Sunday at 5pm (starting 09/25)

    If so, I would vote for Sunday at 5pm myself as my first choice and Sunday at 10:30am as my second. 9pm is too late for us babysitter wise, and I would think that 6:30pm on a weekday might be pushing it for some folks to get out of work in time.

    I was just looking and 14 weeks puts our last day to bowl right on Christmas Day, but I'm sure that will be altered. I also noticed that there are already 2 of those Sundays I'd have to skip and/or make-up.

    How strange on the teams of 2... I guess it'll make bowling go quicker if each team gets their own lane though.

    P.S. Welcome back to the boards DarSolo!
