A Blustery After Hours TLA

Holiday Lanes/Ten Pin Lounge After Hours TLA

Randy didn't let a little rain keep him away.

The moments before an event are always the most worrisome, especially on days when the weather is not cooperating. The Bossier Chamber of Commerce After Hours TLA this month was held at Holiday Lanes in the Ten Pin Lounge. Since I was hosting the event, I wondered how many people might actually show up if rain was added to the mix of the crazy wind. I started second guessing everything, including the amount of food to prepare. When I looked at the clock at 5:08, I was no longer worried. By the end of the evening 70+ people had fared the blustery and rainy weather for the chance to network with other members and have a little fun. If you will notice, click the picture above – Randy was soaked to the bone.

Door Prizes are always a fun time!

I am a little partial since this is my place of employment, but let me say, I heard more than one person saying this was the “funnest” TLA they’ve been to. We had darts, music, adult beverages, food from the Striker’s Cafe, door prizes and of course Bowling.

The winner of the Destiny Day Spa & Salon Free Haircut

My favorite part of the evening was the door prize pull. I think everyone in the room covets the Destiny Day Spa & Salon gift certificates, but the lucky winner of the free haircut didn’t have a strand of hair on his head. We were all swarming around him trying to nab it from him. (HA!)

Holiday Lanes is a great place to gather with friends, family and co-workers. It’s the perfect place to throw a party! Whether you’re planning a corporate outing, a birthday party, a church get-together or family reunion, you’re going to have a great time at Holiday Lanes. Not only can we help you have fun bowling, we can also furnish wonderful food and beverages for your group.

I’m really excited about scheduling some “Play Therapy” team building sessions. I haven’t had the pleasure of facilitating an event, but am looking forward to it. Have you heard about it? A typical “Play Therapy” session includes 90 minutes to 2 hours of play — bowling, billiards or arcade — a facilitator and awards. We can also include food for your group if you choose to have lunch with us. You will see new leaders emerge and witness your co-workers cooperating with great teamwork as they compete against each other. To paraphrase Plato, you will learn more about your co-workers in one hour of play than you will in a lifetime of conversation. Build teamwork, create recognition, exercise, reduce stress and have fun!

I wanted to also share a thanks to Ryan McCutcheon & Kathryn Day – the artists who painted the great entry ways to The Ten Pin Lounge & Striker’s Cafe. I called them just a few weeks ago and they cranked out a design and worked really hard, even on snow days, to have the doors ready by today. If you need graphic artists, give him a call. (Artie Nevel Signs did the awning)

Thanks again to everyone who came out tonight and helped reduce my worries. It really was a fun evening and I look forward to attending the next Bossier Chamber of Commerce event. If you haven’t joined the Chamber, you are missing out on lots of networking – call 746-0252 to get more details about becoming a member.

See ya around Bossier,

  1. Hi Robin,

    Looks like a great turnout and a great time. Sorry to miss it but I was attending another event at the same time. Glad the weather didn’t keep people away! Love how the doors turned out.
