By the way Marc I still know where you live.[biggrin]

I know Ed is RH, and I think Mark is, also.
We should be a lot more comfortable in the arena. WAY roomier concourse. A lot fewer people in the area...plus, the sofas.
I saw Tom (owner) hand the note to one of the tournament directors telling him to put us on the arena, so he we've made it that far. The director is an old guy, like a Dennis and I, so hopefully when we show up our lane assignment will be what we're hoping.

I'm the only lefty on our team.  Team average of 1050.  But I was 10 pins less than normal last year.  

On our application, I put a note requesting the arena, so hopefully, they will tie everything together, and we will be bowling in the arena.

Should be a lot of fun!

for the record, and anyone else who is not bowling in this, here is what the entry form and rules are.  We are bowling in the open division, 7pm, 8/20/18.  All scratch.  This means Fordman has to give the team a series of at least 750.

No pressure.  The last time I bowled in it the place was packed.  Every lane was full.  Maybe I won't get pushed down the stairs like in the main bay.  I still have one good eye and one fair knee and have lost a few pounds.  I hope all the women don't come around wanting to watch me.  I have to wear shorts now.  My bionic knee brace won't fit under my skinny jeans.

That's right, I forgot you got pushed down.  I won't be so demanding, 720 will be good enough, lol  [rofl]

Gents:  The Gavie is one week from today.  What time will everyone be showing up?  I'm assuming there is some sort of a check in?

I’ll be there NLT 6:00. (I like to be early)
Unless something goes terribly wrong, (I’ve talked to the owner, and the tournament director...so...) we’ll be bowling in the arena. I’m gonna try to park way down by the arena entrance, and maybe avoid the ‘main’ completely. If the door to the arena is locked (happens often), i’ll just go in the main, and prop open the arena entrance.

Go Team...um...Team Message Board?

I'll be there by 6:00pm unless traffic kills me. Coming from Troy. Looking forward to it.

I leave for summer league (from Berkley area) around 5:00, and traffic isn’t usually bad right then. It gets worse if i’m any later than that.
They’re working on Southfield, like always, but haven’t been shutting down any southbound lanes at that time...except last Wednesday. If they keep doing that (likely), then sitting on the Southfield will be slow. I haven’t figured out a better way to get there.
😞

Marc if you are coming down Southfield get off at Outer Drive and go left about 2.5 miles.  Turn right on Allen rd. about a 1/4 mile to TBowl.

That’s the easy part. Getting from 8 mile to Outer, on the (freaking) Southfield is the hard part.
Can’t you just send one of your limousines to pick me up? 😎
Last year (?) when the Southfield was closed I took 75 to, I think, 94, to ‘something’...
With no traffic, both ways take about the same time... but either way one accident or lane closure totally screws everything up.
The only good way to get down there from here is leave early, and hope to get lucky. 😬

Hey Ed
What shirt should I wear? 😁

(Kidding...i’ll be wearing the same shirt I always wear, when I get to wear whatever I want...a white undershirt.)

I'm looking forward as well.  I'm usually an early bird, so will be there about 6ish as well.  

There is no dress code is there?  I can wear shorts and tee shirt?
