Skee Ball Meet-up at York Beach, Maine [More:] After some discussion, it looks like the Skee Ball is set for Saturday, August 9th, in York Beach, Maine!

Is it time to formalize/finalize this plan? shall I post it to MetaTalk as well, so long-distance travelers can make reservations? Any thoughts?
Er, oo, actually no, I was about to intiate an email conversation to see if it can be moved to the 16th. I am running into problems with the 9th now.

I think we might need a wiki page on this to assess potential attendance either way. I'll see if I can figure out how to do that.

Either date, I notice that this will be going on during the Olympics. Therefore, I think medals should be awarded.

I'll chime in: I almost certainly can't make the 16th, and anytime in August after the 9th is going to be tricky at best. If it's moved to another date, I'll send my cheeriest Skee Ball thoughts to you all!

I'll keep an eye out for the wiki.

OK, here's a Wiki page. That's the first Wiki page I ever made. I'm very impressed with myself.

I really liked the idea of the 9th, but in the spirit of my recent life, visitors are in the mix messing things up. I will either have to combine my visitors with the meetup on the 9th (would be weird, there are kids involved, I have to play host, etc) or stick with the 16th. Let's just take inventory via the Wiki and go with whatever works best.

If the 9th really is best and it means I have to go for a short while and then leave y'all *snif* i will do so.

Wow, it IS impressive --- and you even added my date input so I didn't have to figure out how! Phew, and thanks!

I'm going to look at my schedule when I get home and post to the Wiki if I think I can get up that way in August. Skee ball!!

Miko, it ain't right for Skee Ball Meet-up to happen without you --- if I recall correctly, you're the originator of the idea. It has to be on a date that works for you! Anything else is just wrong.

visitors are in the mix messing things up.

Yeah, that's my scheduling glitch, too --- out-of-state family is descending with all the kids in tow on the 10th. Given some family business/drama going on, they probably wouldn't want join in the Skee Ball trip, and I hate to leave them for the day-and-night-and-halfday that Skee Ball Tourney + transit will take for me.

That said, if the 16th is the only date that the proud originator can make, and works for others, I'll do my damnedest to free up the weekend.

16th is a wedding for me. But if you move this event, I'll be able to do another event I was going to forgo for this meetup.

Eideteker, would that "other event" be a super-surprise birthday party for Miko & me? Go ahead, admit it. It would certainly be a surprise. And a super one!

16th is much better for me.

YESSSSSSSSssss! Umm, I mean, yasure, the 16th might be sort of okay. Cause I can be there. Yay!

Have fun, guys! I can't make it. The kids go back to school on the 18th. I have a little one starting Kindergarten and being away that weekend wouldn't be practical.
posted by LoriFLA 03 July | 18:58
No, sadly. August 9th is also the annual Magical Mystery Tour. I can go to the skeeball meetup instead, but I cannot miss the wedding the following weekend.
posted by Eideteker 03 July | 22:17
Okay, I added Theora55 and Brujita to the August 16th list on the York Beach Skee Ball wiki.

LoriFLA, I didn't add you to the wiki, because I wasn't sure whether you couldn't make it at all or could only make August 9th.

Anyone else? What's the better date for you? Add it to the wiki!
