I’ve been organising Bowling Bears singlehandedly for thirteen years now and I am taking a break from January 2013 due to family and work commitments.
There will be new events coming up and the best way for you to keep up to date with what’s being organised is to join the distribution list or like us on Facebook (or both!). When I plan something new these people will find out first. If you want Facebook to notify you when there is an update make sure to set Notifications to On!! (see below).
It’s been a great thirteen years and I don’t think there’s been more than one month when the event hasn’t run. For a while we ran two sessions a month. We have tried different venues and different days of the week. Sometimes we have had very small numbers, but in the last few years I feel we have had the winning formula of a central London venue where we can go on to Soho afterwards for a drink and a meal. Once, we had so many bears we had to turn some away, but recently fifteen seems to be the average number and because there is always a mix of new and old, singles and couples no one feels left out.
My thanks go to the many bears who have come along and helped make these events successful over the years.
My thanks also go to Outeverywhere, BearHug, Time Out, Boyz, The Kings Arms, GMFA and the many other people who have helped spread the word about us.
Bowling is a great way to get together, meet old friends and make new ones. On the last Sunday of each month we met in the bar at Queens Ice & Bowl in Queensway. We bowled a couple of games then went on to the Kings Arms for a drink and then off into Soho to eat together.
You don’t have to be any good at bowling – this is about having fun, a drink or two and a bite to eat, meeting friends and making new ones.
