Tonight, as I mentioned in 42: Good news, safe to invite friends , we had a social event as Syston Methodist Church.
For us it was a first. We had 5 lanes of Wii Bowling using 4 data projectors and a big TV. Plus Guitar Hero (again projected) and an xbox 360 motor racing game.
Also our special "Ally Cafe" did a roaring trade with Burgers, Hot Dogs, Nachos (choice of toppings) and loads of cake. Plus soft drinks and tea and coffee.
This was our first use of the new coffee machine and all the feedback I heard was really positive. As people drank nearly 9 litres of coffee I guess they must have liked it
I didn't try to keep a count myself but at a guess there were probably about 80 people in total who came for at least a few games. It was fantastic to see a load of new faces and a lot of people trying something new.
We are very fortunate in having a huge team of people who did the set up, ran the cafe, helped people with the games and then cleared it all up at the end. Not only did they work really hard but they are so cheerful about it that the whole place had a fantastic atmosphere.
I was pleased that I managed to get everything to the Church by bike see Door to door deliveries « 42 Bikes for pictures.
Looks like we will be having more events like this
