Celebration 3 Pool Games? or Bowling?
« on: March 6, 2005, 10:16 PM »
I was thinking about the Fantasy Leauges, and I thought, hey, we could do a JediDefender Celebration 3 Softball game one evening durring the con at a park, or maybe a game of touch football. I don't wanna hurt you old timers. (KIDDING). If everyone brough a glove, I think it's doable.

Who would be in for such an event?

I suck at softball! Football is much better, IMO.

I'd say either billiards, foose ball or bowling... definitely not good at anything where a ball is thrown at me... not even a softball...

Okay,anyone know of a good place?  I've heard that Jillians is a sports bar inside the Omni, but I'm not sure if they have tables?

I think there's a way we could kill 2 birds with one stone.

Generaly, every Bowling Alley that I've been to has a pool table. I just now noticed that Princess suggested bowling, and that too is good by me. Pool is also a great idea.

I'm going to do a little google research and see what bowling alleys indy has, pool halls too, and see what options we have.

Kevin

EDIT: Good news! There are 27 Bowling Alleys in Indianapolis. Bowling Alley Listings

There are also 8 pool halls in Indianapolis. Pool Hall Listings

I suppose we can now come up with some ideas for a collective meeting place?

Just a question of what the C3 schedule's gonna look like.  I'm definitely down for shooting some stick, but that was probably already a given during some of our evening outtings.

Bowling?  If there's an alley nearby, and the whole crew was down, I'd be happy to showoff my hardcore bowling skillz.  183 average back in the day.  Yeah, I'm that good, and that much of a loser, so shut up!   :-*

Softball/football?  Doubtful, as that would cut into valuable daylight hours of either recovering from hangovers and/or spending time in the convention.  Plus, I'm rather fragile in my old age now...

Another thing I was thinking about wanting to do out there with everyone was go golfing.  But that doesn't seem too feasible, since it would take up the better part of a whole day.  Maybe if we had all stayed through Monday night, we could've gone out on Monday after the convention was over.  Oh well...

Haha! Now I really wanna bowl. My highest game was a 211. My lowest game was a 76. I am teh god, or teh suck, depending on what ball I use.

One of those Pool halls is a resturant as well...I wonder if the food is any good.

question is- is there anything available w/in walking distance of the con?
I tried looking last night and it didn't seem to pull anything really close by, but they have a lot of those black light bowling places it appears...

You aren't familiar w/ this?? I thought all you young whippersnappers knew all about this... it's kind of neat... and it's not usually really, really dark, but dark enough to glow... 
when I went to the Indy site there were several lanes listed- I was looking for pool halls, but they cross-referenced...

Oh yeah, that's fun - Glow Bowling!  Blaring music, flashing lights, glowing shirts.  I still only bowl 100, if I'm lucky.  But it's a good time!   :)

Okay, so we have another vote for bowling...
I bowl around 150- but I have on occassion let go of the ball too soon and then, well, it goes the wrong way...
Would we have enough cars/transport to get us to a lane?
