A couple of years ago I organized a bowling night for Jeff's friends/co-worker. It was a great way to see each other outside of work. This was a successful event and everyone said we should do it again. Two years later, I am tasked to organize another get together for friends.
Since a few of Jeff's coworker have retired, they have not seen each other for a few months. This is the month that I am calling Friendship Month. It is an evening to have some fun and the guys can reconnect with their former coworker/friends. It is also a night when they can bring their spouses. When I first moved here, we use to host a poker night on a Friday. Each of the guys take a Friday to host at their home, usually every sixth week. Lately they have not scheduled any due to whatever reason. I have been invited to a few of those, specially when they are needing extra poker players. It is a fun night of friendly poker game and sharing stories. Of course there's a lot of food, drinks and some cigar smoking. After a few emails back and forth, the Bowling night finally got underway. We all got together at Bowlmor last night and it was great to see everyone. Although I am a professional bowler on Wii, it was an eye opener to switch to real bowling. The balls are heavy and it's very difficult to roll when your sciatica is acting up. Some of the people came with their own ball and some of us just laugh on how bad our scores show up on the screen. Everyone enjoyed our reconnecting night at bowling and thanked me for organizing the event. Maybe next time we will try billards and darts or even a golf tournament.
