Since lately it has been pretty cold here in Dallas, we decided to get out of the cold and rain for a different type of indoor event — neon bowling! What is more fun than bowling in crazy colors with your friends and eating pizza for an entertaining Saturday evening. Bowling is a great opportunity for new and existing members to meet up, have a blast, and maybe even meet someone they make a special connection with.
We had a great group of 40 people for this event, evenly split among women and men and divided up over eight lanes. In fact, we had one whole end of the alley all to ourselves! Members arrived early and got their fantastically designed bowling shoes, giving them a chance to mingle before our lanes were ready and the pizza and sodas arrived. Before we split up the group across our eight lanes, the pizza made its appearance and was gone in no time.
Neon Bowling is a Fun Way to Compete
Then it was time for the action. You could hear everyone cheering each other on when it was their turn to bowl. There was both some fun and some slightly serious competition between the bowlers at our lane and the bowlers at other lanes in our group. We were all having such an amazing time bowling and mingling and getting to know the new members that were here for their very first event. It made for a great mid-month event for the beginning of the year! You could definitely tell that Events & Adventures Dallas was making its presence known at the bowling alley that evening.

Events & Adventures Dallas spent a night out at the bowling alley, and while you might think that bowling wouldn’t be interesting enough to be a highlight of the weekend, it was a fantastic evening! We had several new members come out for their very first event and it was a perfect place for them to socialize and be brought into the group. We had close to 40 people attending and everyone was fun, pleasant, and spent time in between the game getting to know new members. The atmosphere was very inviting and no one felt left out.
Bowling is just one of those things that never gets old. Even the few of us that weren’t too skilled at bowling were having a great time, and we were even able to sneak in a few strikes here and there. Everyone was laughing, high fiving, and cheering on our fellow members making it a great atmosphere. We were out bowling for about two hours, and some of our members say that the cheap drinks at the alley’s bar helped them get higher scores—but don’t hold them to that!
After the game a bunch of us decided we weren’t ready to call it a night, so we went to celebrate our wins (or drown our losses) with a few cold ones. About 20 of us headed over to a local bar, and several of them were new members who already felt comfortable enough to hang out with the rest of us. Everyone had a great time, and this is just one of the many great events Events & Adventures Dallas sets up for us every month. We’ll be doing it again soon!
One thing you can count on is always having fun at our singles events here at our Vancouver Club. Saturday night at the bowling held this true, as we had a tonne of laughs and jokesters as usual. Making our gutter games more fun was the cheering for everyone when they couldn’t hit a pin, or in most cases, only left one standing. IT was like a conspiracy all night but the cheers and high fives were always around. We even went by nicknames all night and that sure made for some interesting conversation, we had Chris the Fritz, & Da Hound, Slick and even Sexyboy, (which by the way he never answered too) Don’t forget the sub in that we had, who forgot that bowling shoes were needed on the lanes…After playing a few rounds most of us headed out in the rain to grab desert and keep the night rolling a little longer. Always a blast and can’t wait til the next!!
