WELCOMING 2010 DID YOU KNOW?

Happy New Year everyone! Made any resolutions yet? Don’t forget to make ‘visit NEB’s more often’ one of them.

NEB’s owner Tom England was recently interviewed for an article in Oshawa This Week. After receiving a Business Excellence award from the Oshawa Chamber, Tom reflects on his success and future.

We welcomed the arrival of 2010 with a fantastic evening of bowling, rides, and general silliness! Cosmic bowl set the scene for NYE perfectly - with lasers flashing and disco balls spinning it’s hard not to get excited. Our rides were open late to keep the fun going until midnight!

Read all about it here.

The lei’s and noisemakers we gave out helped everyone ring in the New Year as it should be done...as loudly as possible!

COMING SOON TO NEB’S ROLLER COASTER:

MINI JET:

The Roller Coaster will be above our famous Go-Kart track. Shoot around corners and fly over hills while Go-Karts drive beneath you!

Take flight in one of 6 mini aircraft that move around and spin in circles!

SIDEWINDER: Strap into one of 12 seats and hold on tight! The Sidewinder is a giant pendulum that rockets you from side to side while spinning.

SPRAY PARK ‘N’ MINI GOLF: Make your way through 9 holes of outdoor mini golf, surrounded by cooling water. The Spray Park will be beneath large canopies for shade.

FEEDING THE NEED IN DURHAM Let’s face it, 2009 has been a tough year for many Durham residents. We saw the need and wanted to do something to help. So NEB’s partnered with Feed the Need and held our first annual Christmas food drive! We collected non-perishable food and hygiene items from November 8th until December 18th. By the end, the donation

weight had exceeded 2500 pounds! Our patrons showed incredible generosity, but without continued league support, this achievement would have been impossible. As a special incentive, scorecards were made available to league donors on a weekly basis. The top 10 P.O.A. scores went into a $500 draw with half going to the bowler, and half going to the league. Our lucky winner out of 365 entries and 10 finalists was Korey Carrigan!

GET YOUR PJ’S READY We’ve introduced Participation Cards this season, giving YBC bowlers something fun to do between turns. Every time a PeeWee or Bantam completes the weekly activity - a colouring page, puzzle, or scoring game - then 1 stamp is awarded. When enough stamps are collected, the child

receives a prize! So far we’ve given out Attraction tickets, cookies, drinks, temporary tattoos, and stationary. A brand new card becomes available in January, with candy, games, jewelry, and keychains as prizes! Kids can earn 2 additional stamps during Dress Up Day. The next one is Pajama Day on January 16th!

CHRISTMAS PARTIES GALORE This holiday season, we were the happy host of many Christmas parties. Some were booked nearly a year in advance! Our new Private Room made NEB’s an even better venue in 2009. It can accommodate up to 100 guests and has state of the art A/V equipment. Even Santa chose that spot!

to set up a play area for the toddlers. I can also say that the food was delicious...not that I sampled any of it.

The CEP group kindly let us photograph their party. The organizers did an incredible job, it was truly impressive! Every child received a beautifully wrapped and age appropriate present. They even remembered

ATTENTION MASTERS It’s almost time for the 2010 New Year’s Classic at NEB’s! The winners last year were John Greenlee and Suzanne Larocque from NEB’s, and Kristi Lampman of Woodstock. Tournament begins January 2nd with a 1:00 PM registration and 1:30 PM start. Continues January 3rd at 9:00 AM.

HOLIDAY TOSS UP I love holidays. My favourite is a toss up between Halloween and Christmas. Any excuse to decorate, eat treats, and spread some much-needed cheer is fine by me. Throw in cute costumes and I’m definitely celebrating. Enjoy the photos!
