    Come on out and join the SMT for a few rounds of Cosmic Bowling on Saturday, January 31st at Billy Hardwick's All-Star Lanes at 1576 S White Station Rd, Memphis.

    We'll meet up in the lobby at 8:30 pm. Cosmic Bowling starts at 9 pm and lasts until 3 am. Officially, we'll plan on bowling until midnight, but, if we're having too much fun to quit, we can always roll on through until 3 am.

    The price for three hours is $12, including shoe rental.

    If you know you'll be there, then please let us know as soon as you can. If I have a good idea of how many to expect, I can try to reserve us a few lanes beforehand.

    To RSVP, you can post here in this thread, or you can email me at tim@suspiciousmindtrick.net

    Hope to see everyone there!

    -Tim

    Anybody get the ad yet? I'm thinking of doing this as a mailer for all of our upcoming meetings.

    Of course, I now wish I would have named it "Suspicious Minds in the Gutter". Why do I not think of these things earlier?

    There's always next time!

    Nope- no ad yet, but I haven't checked my email since this morning.

    Played with that design Rhonda did for the jerseys. I'll shoot you and her a copy later today.

    Tim I got the ad and it was awesome. You should definetly do these for more of the meetings.

    Tim: I'm glad you liked it. I thought it would be good to have something eye-catching to send to current and prospective members. So far, only three people couldn't get it to open because of either their email program or ISP. Despite that, I'm going to continue to use my handy-dandy little cheapo flash program to make SMT ads for future events.

    Jay: The jerseys are $24. Will you be joining us for bowling?

    Jay: You're gonna dig'em! The jerseys turned out sweet, and will look great at MSC this spring!

    Tim: Can you do a jpeg image and/or screen capture or simple animated gif as well? I know most folks can open flash these days, but some still can't, or don't know how.

    I did love the ad! Looking forward to more-

    Never done gifs, Lin. I do have a way to do them, but I've just never tried. But you're right, it would work better for some folks. Of course, I'm addicted to the flash format because it can be more complex.

    I completely understand! I'm going to have to get with the program and learn it. We're about to start updating/revamping the MSCA site and I'd like to be able to animate parts of it. I'd also like to do some promos for it and the Nightarez site.

    Tim- Yep, I'll be comming for Bowling, seeing that I miss everything else, I'm gonna dedicate some time to the fanforce, and take a little break from the SCA. I'll bring an additional money for a Jersey if they're ready at the Bowling.

    Lin- The Jerseys sound really cool!

    They're already available, Jay. See Rhonda next Saturday night to purchase yours.

    Glad to see you'll be joining us at the alley.

    So far, that makes 7 confirmed attendees.

    Anyone else want to throw a few gutterballs with us?

    Only 8 more days until The SMT Cosmic Bowling Experience!

    Question: Anybody know if they still make platform bowling shoes? I'm wanting to dress just like Woody Harrelson in Kingpin.

    Yes, before he got the artificial hand.

    Well, it looks like I'll be missing yet another SMT meeting. :( My mother broke both of her ankles Monday, so I'll be trying to spend some more time with her. I have a rant on this subject that I will be posting in the rant thread.

    Best to your mom- and YOU, Grace! (I read the rant thread.)

    Kell, glad you're gonna be there and bringing a friend, but how can you bowl in THAT dress?!

    "Means you gotta dress like you're Amish, Lin. "

    You mean I don't already..?

    Hey, as long as I don't have that headdress on, I'm pretty spry in that thing!
    I'm even going bowling tomorrow to warm up for it! (well, actually just for a friend's birthday, but whatever works.)
