I only just joined, but I live across at Emsworth. Haven't had time to go through all the posts, but could you let me know where/when the bowling is (on Saturday?).

If you haven't got a venue, there's one at Bedhampton on the road up to Portsdown Hill, just next to Homebase.

Let me know, and I'll bring my Walter-PPK

Hey Dave.  I know that alley in Bedhampton, it's a good one, nice pool hall.  But alas, it's not so accessible.  Maybe with some planning we can use it next year.

We're looking at Saturday afternoon up Gunwharf (yeah, I know, it's crowded, but we'll split to a quiet venue after the bowling and pool) as it's central and easily accessible.

We'll start firming up towards the end of the week.

And yeah, Ceaser, maybe we'll organise something with more, y'know, planning towards the summer to get a few more people involved.  East Anglia is a bit of a way to come for a casual get together  :-\

Ok guys and gals, Dudes and... err, other Dudes.

We'll be meeting up between 12:00 and 14:00 on Saturday, to give us all some time to wake up, wash up and mosey on down to Portsmouth Harbour and slowly form into, y'know, some kind of Dudely posse.

The day's events will probably include socialising, drinking, bowling, philosophising and the consumption of local cuisine (something with chips).  Maybe even a group trip into the cinema to see Crazy Heart, if people feel like splashing out!  But, y'know, whatever mood takes us is gonna be the true schedule.

It's probably best if we meet up in the bar at the Bowlplex.  Once you're in Gunwharf Quays the Bowlplex is on the upper level overlooking the main quad.  I'm sure it won't be that hard to spot each other.  I'll probably be skulking at the back near the pool tables with a good book and a pint of slow-brewed apple soda.

Anyone wishing to contact me, my email is available via my profile and the DotD section of Dudeism.com.  I'll throw you my mobile number in case you get truly lost or are running late, or whathaveyou.

Hope to see all you locals there!

I wish that I could join you dudes, but until I figure out how to make my rug fly I'm  grounded. I'll be there in spirit. So pull a pint for me, and then, uh, drink it for me too.

Will do Elbowski, will do, man.

Although if we had to do that for everyone who wanted to come but wasn't able to, I think we might all need to bring spare livers!

Right Chaps for those of you who don't abide in Pompey, map for where the Bowlplex is from the station;



Pin (A) is the bus station and the place the train lands (Portsmouth harbour station) pin (B) is the Bowlplex.

It should take a minute to walk from one to the other.

Look forward to seeing those of you that make it.

Don't worry You'll find me wondering around lost as i can never work bloody Gun Wharf out.

And fo those that dont like maps, a picture of the same thing (I find these can be simpler):

The Day was a rip-roaring success.

Three men, a modest pile of monkey chow, a bar and a waitress!

Here's the first of three pictures.  This is Meekon, taking a picture of Klaus, taking a picture of me, taking a picture of... ah, you get the idea...

OK chaps there was some talk about organising this a little better, and setting another meeting in about two months time.

Any input?

Wow, Pete looks scary in the shade!  Anywho...

I think the best thing is to plan ahead if more people are interested.  Give people more time to:

a)  Hear about it
b)  Plan for the trip
c)  Scrape up the baksheesh

Maybe a little summer suar? (if you'll pardon my French), a hottenanny (if you'll pardon my Hollandeese), a shindig if you will.

Or if not, just the three of us will make do.  Feel free to come over to Fareham next time, Darts and Bar Billards ar the Clinkers awaits!  My round!
