Is Bowling Cool?

Written in


So almost 2 years ago, in one of my first posts, I talked about a night I spent bowling. This past weekend, I went again. Man, am I consistent.

Consistently getting better, that is…

This post is actually not about my bowling prowess, but I’ll start there. So, because of the lack of record-keeping, I’m officially declaring myself the best bowler that reads my blog. This past Saturday, I bowled two games. 122/184.

This leads me to the point of my post. Why don’t more technology events take place in bowling alleys? They’re smoke-free (at least in Ohio), it’s a good place to hang out with a large group, it’s generally a fun thing to do (occasionally), it’s relatively inexpensive, and you can drink beer there. I’m not finding the negatives in bowling.

Has your user group ever had a bowling night?

Has your company ever sponsored one?

If I were to put one together, would anyone be interested in attending?

I’m thinking it’s a great networking opportunity with the right crowd, and a fun way to spend an evening with technology-mined friends. I’d love some frank feedback…what are your thoughts?

    I like bowling when I go, it’s not something I get to do as often as I would like. A geek-networking bowling night sounds like the perfect thing actually…

    You’re a better bowler than me – if I hit triple digits I count it as a success

    This is an excellent idea. I’d be down for a night of brews, bowling, and technology.
