I bowled a 156 and had a plate of rodent droppings with a side of gnats. It was a great night.

I'd be more worried about bowling 156. Practice, practice, practice you know ... Maybe we need a Dacula Patch bowling team.
Mitch December 19, 2012 at 04:52 PM
Ha! As someone who struggles to break 100, a 156 game would be huge. Bowling, such a strange game…the throwing of a big heavy ball down a long wooden lane to knock down some silly little white pins with huge gaping gutters on each side, all while everyone looks at your butt. Start ordering those ugly bowling shirts with the Dacula Patch logo. I’m in. But let’s just hold practice at another location until these pests are thrown to the gutter, so to speak.

Well, at least bowling is better than badminton though, come to think of it, I can imagine more practical applications for swatting flying objects than hitting stationary targets with a large ball ...

We need a place to play hockey! I have never been interested in the game until I played it. It's the biggest adrenaline rush ever! Somebody let me know if they ever make an invetment in one. I'll be first in line - lol. Bowling is just too boring for me.

Isn't there a place on Satellite in Suwanee? Or maybe its far enough down Satellite to be considered Duluth.
