Just thought I'd go ahead and post this up now so we can have some activity in the Carolinas forum. :thumbsup:

Bowling

We have 6 lanes saved at Gate City Lanes. It is located at Exit 213, Guilford College Rd, on I40. If you are coming from the west on I40, you take a right off the exit, then right at the light. If you are coming from the east on I40, you take a left off the exit, then take a right onto Hornaday Rd.

5502 Hornaday Rd.

The cost will be $13 per person, with unlimited bowling from 10am-3pm. The alley is equipped with automatic bumpers, if you are to be bowling with kids, so that is cool.

Restaurant

The restaurant we had last year, Ham's, no longer books parties on Saturdays. So, we have decided to go to a very nice sandwich shop in High Point.

Harrison's 1807 North Main Street www.harrisonsdeli.com
http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.ad...ate=NC&zipcode=
336-883-0030

They are located directly across from Carolina Kia, and the Bentley Dealer.

Their menu has salads ($1.95-6.45), appetizers ($1.59-7.29), sandwiches ($3.95-5.95), and even shishkabob platters ($5.25-10.95), desserts ($1.25-2.99). They have a few things for the kids, as well. They serve beer and wine, too!

Thanks to Mike and Bill for helping to get this put together! :thumbsup:

I will get Tina to go talk with the guy at the bowling alley. Do I need to go set something up with the same restaurant? Or, is Bill going to do that? Go to a different restaurant?

We bowled in TX and Burke won three games, I won one, and Mike....well.... :rolleyes: I'm not going to go into what happened out on the road course. :rotf:

Of course you can bring your daughter, that's why we do the bowling thing so other family members can get involved. If I'm going to drive, I'd rather do it out on the open track...not that karting isn't fun. :thumbsup:

We do have a bowling alley here in RH, I thought about getting some practice shots in before we meet up. :)

I'm sorry Mike, yes to all of your answers and Allan's suggestions. Hams for the meeting, upstairs, and maybe we can add a little to it this year with a surprise or something??

Or do you want to make it $5.00 per pin? I seem to recall that you only beat me by 3 pins over 4 games and I was using a house ball and you had your personal stuff.:bounce: We will see in January. :D
