[53/60 slots signed]

Welcome to #teambowling.

Team bowing was created already back in 2014 where we created a group during ESA which went to go bowling together. The year after that we extended this side event to everyone joining ESA in general with a great success. We were around 70+ people who signed up to go bowling together.

2016 was a setback since the bowling was closed during the summer so instead we
booked in an event company with their bumperballs event, that also with a huge success.

This year we are bringing #teambowling back to our event with an exra twist to it.
This years bowling will include:
- ~ 1.5 h bowling.
- dinner at a pre-booked restaurant
- dinner enetertainment - quiz

Quiz time
The quiz will last around one hour and will start after we have finished eating.
The theme of the quiz will be informed before the dinner starts. Team setup will be at
max five people for each team, you may choose on your own who you want to team up with. The winning team on the quiz is the winning team for this years side event and will have their team name written on our event trophy.

Introducing the side event traveling trophy.
After two years of acivte side events creations we are now also creating
the side event trophy. This is a prize given out to the winners of the side event that they proudly can show up as their teams prestige moment troughout the time during the event. YES it will be a real trophy, no plastic or candy kind.

The trophy will given to the team winning the side event and be at your disposal during the week. For safety messures etc I'm going to store it at home in between ESA events just so we know that it wont fall off somewhere else and also so you wont have to mail it back to me incase you wont attend the next year. You will get to choose a short team name max 12 characters that later will be visible on the thropy for each years winner. (example: 2017/ xxxxxxxxxxxx)

Sign up for #teambowling
You sign up here, talking to me or irregularprograming, on the site etc.
We will have 60 slots open to this! After that they will be closed.
Signed up means you join in to everything. Bowling + food + quiz.

If you sign up and decide not to come I still need you to pay for your bowling slot.
This is because the price will be an negotiated price with the bowlingalley for us so you will take up a slot that's not getting filled!

Payment
You pay to me after the bowling is over before we go to the restaurant. So please try to keep it quick. Best is if you keep it on the money, making a lot of money exchange will be painful and slow for us before we can move to the restaurant. You can of course also pay in advance during the ESA as long as you talk to me first!

Last day to sign up is the day before the event. Date and time will come up soon!

Date and time
Right now there's two days I'm looking at for this event
-Wednesday, July 26, 2017 14.00 and Thursday, July 27, 2017 14.00.
The final will be decided when I get in contact of the bowling area to book a place for us.
These just were the most fitting times for this event.
That means we will gather up at 13.45 before leaving at the entrence of the event and will be done around 17 with the bowling + dinner + quiz.

If any question feel free to ask me.

Cheers.. Dolls

@crazycharlieh - i dont know exact since we might get a discount at the bowling alley as well.
But i would guess around 100 sek for the bowling before any discounts + the money for the food you order.

I'd love to go 🙂
I would need for it to be on Thursday, though. And even then, I probably will have to miss out on the quiz, since I need to be back at the venue at around 17. But still, I'd love to join for bowling and dinner.

 
  curseddollscurseddolls

@HaosEdge I have been firm on the quiz for others so I feel bad if I would say it's OK to others. The quiz is part of the side event cause of the trophy. And if people would start ditching after bowling or dinner then we would have an issue with planning a lot for this with it ending up as a nothing.

So as I said to others. It's bowling +dinner+quiz. The 17 is only estimated cause it depends on how fast we eat, when we get to the restaurant etc and travel time to the bowling etc. Can even be earlier or later.

I guess I can't join then, didn't realize it was more of a competitive thing 😛 Have fun tho!

 
  curseddollscurseddolls

@HaosEdge it wasn't before but since I have done this for a few years now I wanted to give the people who join something extra for it. Runners usually strife to wanting to win and usually have a competitive way of thinking. Each side event I have had people asking me who won. Well.. Now they will earn a travelling trophy that will have their name on it showing that they did.

I think it's a really cool idea.

Since I don't have any runs I have way to much time anyways, so count me in 🙂
