14.05.2010 20:00 to 23:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: Billiardino Zuri-Westside

FINAL UPDATE: THE EVENT TIME HAS BEEN PUSHED BACK BY ONE HOUR. I WILL PROBABLY BE THERE A LITTLE EARLY, BUT PLEASE NOTE, THE EVENT DOESN'T START UNTIL 20.00. There is no problem with tables, as I have called ahead. We will start with one and as people show up, move it to two or more... Again, if you are concerned with getting lost or want to be able to get a hold of me, please PM me, and I will give you my number.

I will be wearing gray pants, and a red Chip n Dales t-shirt. If you don't know who Chip n Dale are, you can look here (http://www.80stees.com/products/Jumb...s-t-shirts.asp) for the exact shirt I will be wearing. I am about 5'5", medium build, brown curly hair; name = Julie. See you tonight!

Alright, here we go. As discussed previously (http://www.englishforum.ch/social-ev...ying-pool.html), lets gets together for a few hours of pool-playing fun. Everyone is welcome, from the avid pool players to those who just play for fun. And even if you don't want to play, you are more than welcome to come out and drink with us.

AS AN UPDATE, based on the majority interest, we will play at:

Billiardino Züri-Westside
Heinrichstrasse 245
8005 Zürich
http://www.billiardino.ch/index1.php
from 24CHF/hr

Looking forward to it!

Re: Pool Night!

Nuts. If this was in Geneva or Lausanne I'd be in there like swimwear...as they say.

Ahem.

Billiardino is fine by me. A regular haunt.

hehe. I haven't actually heard that one before, but I like it.

I come to Lausanne all the time for work (including early next week). We could find a pool hall there and play if you want. PM me if interested.

Re: Pool Night!

Heya JLF, the timing doesnt work for me sorry. But I will be playing later in the evening in Billardino on the very same day if you want to stay on after 10pm?

I chose the time based on the fact that after 8 at Billiardino, they no longer accept reservations, and I didn't want the first time we all tried to get together to be a bust (if tables weren't available). Plus, if people had plans to go out later in the night, then they could do both...

Well, depending on the final numbers, I may push back to later in the evening (anyway) and take the chance with table availability. I will have to wait and see.

So that will determine whether I will still be up for playing after 10. It sure seems a bit late for me (my brain stops functioning late at night). hehe

Personally I have always strolled in to Billardino around 10ish on weekend nights, and never had a problem getting tables. I guess it might be different if you've got a big group wanting more than 2-3 tables at once. Good luck and look forward to having a game some time.

Look above ... I was hoping people would 'read' the changes (because that wasn't the only thing I changed). Thanks for the laugh. And to summerrain for helping out too...

Re: Pool Night! (UPDATE)

I'll definitely be turning up tonight, really looking forward to it actually! See you later, upon which I will hopefully issue a sound thrashing to at least one of you (luminousmind I have you in my sights).
