(Social) Pool Night

21.01.2011 20:00 to 23:59
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich (8005)
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Billiardino, Heinrichstrasse 245

UPDATE ON PAGE 3 IN BLUE. PLEASE NOTE: START TIME CHANGED TO 20.30!!! (But if I change it on the event description, it erases all the RSVPs, so...)

Similar to Friday Night Drinks, but with pool happening in the background. This is the first 2011 installment, and it will occur relatively regularly--say once every three weeks or so...

We play, we drink, we just want to have fun! As always, come if you want to play, if you want to drink, if you want to meet new people, and/or if you are interested in seeing what it is all about. It is usually a great crowd and all are welcome.

Location:
Billiardino
Heinrichstrasse 245
8005 Zurich, Switzerland
043 960 33 33

As usual, trash talking to commence below. And of course, any questions can be pm'ed to me or asked below as well. I will give a final update on the day of the event with my clothing selection (for any newbies who don't know who I am) and where we will be located in the pool hall based on the number of attendees (normally, we are in the back left corner).

Looking forward to (hopefully) a great turnout!

At the moment I am upstairs from you.

I was wondering where all the usual social pool nighters are.

Re: (Social) Pool Night

I can hit the cue well enough to find the pocket most of the times. But pretty much a novice.
Heard & Read this place also has courses to learn for free - 3 weeks in a month?
But the earliest slot available is in March, so I will join you all after, lets say, a couple of months.
Offcourse if this still happens at that time...

Don't wait for lessons first. Some people that come to the social pool nights don't even play at all. Just come have a few drinks and meet some people. Maybe with some "dutch courage" you will want to play pool with some of us other novices. If nothing else come for a laugh.

Isn't that what I said?

Come to think of it, didn't I win our last head-to-head? Don't care if you had swine flu or not, I won. I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON!

Nelly is exactly right here. This is for fun--even if you don't know how to play, you are more than welcome. And there will be laughs for sure. There always are at the social pool nights...

Now now, country_mouse. This is the fun pool outing. Save that competitive craziness for the league. Of course, if we are all drinking, I would really like to see how your respective games change. You guys can't be nearly as uptight with alcohol.

You are absolutely welcome.

I have a strange feeling about this pool night. It seems like it might actually be a very quiet night. Are my regulars from pool league coming? Come on guys, post your very first post on the EF in response to this question... you can do it; I know you can.
