Yeah great event KB Smile

Perhaps I'll have to reach another milestone at your next one. Hopefully I don't start making that a habit.

Didn't pay attention to my bowling score much, but I think I broke 100 once...?

Just woke up... (08:23) -- I'm supposed to be at work at 08:00... I guess that means it was good. What happened last night? I was there I think.

You and I were stupid and I was making an ass out of myself. Obviously the event was successful! Smile

There was an afterparty? I think? Down on E, right on Lexington, then right on this other road, then left on another one, then a right - I remembered the names of those roads last night, and I ended up with no signs of an afterparty. Did I hear "hot tub" or something?

I didn't bowl a 300. I don't think I even broke 130. Photos up soon.

I didn't remember it until talking w/TwentySeven this morning. I was very impressed and glad that I was able to witness it. It was certainly awesome.

Hey, that was all me. That was an awesome spare.

For those who missed it: A stray pin was sitting in the gutter. I had thrown a 9 and there was one pin left up. To close the frame I ended up hitting the pin in the gutter, causing the ball to fly out and clear the pin. Pure skill.

Hey, that's my line! Smile

.....so I guess I need to practice tripping and throwing myself down on the floor as I chuck the ball halfway down the lane into the gutter? Man, I've been doing it all wrong! Laughing

Wish I'd seen that, I heard the shouting and cheering afterwards though. I've seen something similar happen once while I was bowling with a couple people though, definately a nice shot.

I knew someone said it but I wasn't quite sure who. Sorry that I didn't give you the credit you deserved.

Thanks to all who attended. Thanks to Silent Bob, for the idea. The cookie tin cache will be treasured forever. Nice touch.

I guess retirement is not an option?

Too bad you don't get Social Security checks from The United States of Geocaching.com.
