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

UPDATE IN BLUE ON PAGE 3!!

Similar to Friday Night Drinks, but with pool happening in the background---and this time on a SATURDAY (gasp!).

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 just 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

Any questions can be pm'ed to me or asked below. I will give a final update on the day of the event with my clothing selection and where we will be located in the pool hall based on the number of attendees (normally, we are either in the back left corner or in the front on the right side).

Looking forward to (hopefully) a great turnout!
RSVP'd Yes: 26 (20 members and 6 guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 9 (9 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 3
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

HA!! "Old farts" just run on a purer alcohol. And with this group I don't think it really matters where we are, we (and my tutu) will have a damn good time.

Fixed that for ya

Seriously, I have never seen commitment issues like yours before!

Remember, although you are coming out to play more serious pool, which many on this list will surely oblige, this is just for fun. Get your arse to Zurich...(please).

Re: Social Pool Night

JLF, am so sorry but am now a MAYBE again. Down with a bad throat/cough/cold and have a long day in Lucern prior.

Would really like to but will depend on how I feel now. Sorry for being such a pansy but am not sure if I have the batteries to last till then as I am not 100%.....mama!!!!

I can have someone meet you there if you want Begs... or at Hardbrucke. Or if you want to come a bit later, grumpy will be at the Viadukt until 9 and then is planning to stop by for one or two, so you could meet him there and he can bring you over. Let me know.

I am sure me and CJ can alight at HB on our way through and guide Begga in...?

Re: Social Pool Night

I decided that for every game I lose, I will give 10chf to charity and 5chf for every game I win.

Most prob to Children in Need and or the Japan Fund.

Just my little way of mixing fun with helping peeps.

Re: Social Pool Night

I might have to come along and check out this social pool thing I keep hearing so much about.

Will be being social but I'm not really a player.

Re: Social Pool Night

13 Maybes: perhaps confirm if you'll be coming as the tables will need reserving and there's no need for the organiser to have to foot any unnecessary fees, or for the rest of us to have to wait ages so everyone who wanders in at the last minute can beat Kevlegs, even if it is for charity. Cheers. Mine's an Erdinger. And a Dos X. And a hot dog.

Ha! You two are so funny. I tried to get those maybes to make a decision, but like kevlegs, they can't.

Tables are already reserved although I might need a couple more. I have about 10 other confirmed yes's of people that are EF-affiliated but not really active.

I will choose my clothes sometime tomorrow and update the thread accordingly. Now's the time for suggestions (by the brave and/or witty).

Re: Social Pool Night

Well, those that want to play - and let Kevlegs allow us to beat him for cheerity - won't want to be swamped with loads of people coming in and saying they too want to play. Everyone's welcome, of course, but it would be polite to tell the OP and those who've already declared they're in for a game - and a beer - if you're coming.

Very friendly staff at Billiardino. They always treat us well.

Agreed kind sir... agreed.

Keep in mind all, half the people coming (roughly) are just in it for the social atmosphere. You don't have to be good at pool or play pool at all for that matter... you can just come out and join us for a few beers/drinks. With the numbers, it is shaping up to be a fun night.

I have been to the last two or three social pool nights and we have so far never faced a lack of tables... and nobody complained that he was not able to play enough. Maybe there are plenty of people interested at the beginning, but the interest slows down after the first beers and really everyone will be able to play...

I have the feeling we will be all ok tomorrow as well

Re: Social Pool Night

MORNING OF THE EVENT UPDATE:

Hope
everyone is looking forward to tonight! I will be wearing very dark blue jeans with a jewel-toned green three-quarter-sleeved shirt. I am about 5'4'', medium-build, dark reddish-brown hair, name = Julie. Look for me if you are new and I will introduce you around.

We should be in the back left corner or on the right side around the corner from the beer desk (ie-where you would request a table) at the pool hall. If you ask for me/my group (in English), they will know where to direct you. If you are concerned about finding us, please let me know and I will pm you my number. As most say, just listening for a loud, big group of english speakers usually works too.

Anything else, let me know.
