LGBT Bowling
Saturday 17th June

York Third Saturday and the Coffee Morning are coming together to go to Bowling on the 17th June at 7:30pm and everyone is invited!

For one game it costs £7.75 and for two games £12.90. The bowling centre also has other arcade games such as air hockey and 2p machines. So if you didn’t want to bowl there is also that option. There is food available and drink (both containing alcohol and non-alcohol)

 

Venue: Tenpin York, Stirling Road, Clifton Moor Centre, York, YO30 4WZ

 

The site is fully accessible

 

We’ll be meeting at the Corner Pin pub at 6-15pm, just time for a quick drink before we catch the number 6 bus to Clifton Moor at 6-45pm, alternatively you can meet us at MegaBowl on Clifton Moor at 7-30pm (7-30pm is our start time for bowling so please be there before then if you can)

 

We do need to know definite numbers by Thursday 8th June as we have to prebook our slot, it’s 6 persons per bowling lane, so we have to book in accordingly in multiples of 6.

Don’t worry if you can’t definitely commit to going until after the 8th, we can sort something out, but we couldn’t manage the lanes being together for those confirming after the 8th June.
