“Yeah, well. The Dude abides.” And the Pokenauts go bowling.

In honor of The Dude and the Poken team’s achievements of 2009, the Pokenauts of Lausanne went bowling. When you get an eclectic mix of people with a mish-mash of bowling talent you inevitably end up with an evening of highly entertaining moments, new concepts, and certainly, loads of laughs.

And, with awards like “Best style, which had no apparent effect on her score”, “Players most likely to be using performance enhancing substances,” and “Most strikes visibly aided by pin-setting machine,” there was something for everyone.

The team winner, by two points, was the Maudes.  It’s ok, the Donnys, the Dudes, and the Sobchaks had other good qualities…

And, lest we forget, the winner of “Most unique yet suprisingly effective style” was Gabriel. See the video below.


Innovative, truly, especially since he did get several strikes throughout the evening.  Wow.

So, if you go bowling and would like to try this new technique, let us know how it goes.  Is Gabriel on to something?

Some more pics of the team, below.  Note Marco’s finishing pose (bottom left)… and Denny’s, errr, “denergizment” (bottom right).  Love it.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen The Big Lebowski – do so…   immediately, if you can.

Left to Right: Steve & Christopher laughing over beers; the Pokenauts; Marco throws his 'cannonball,' huzzah!; Scott and Christopher fist-pumping after Scott's strike; Denny... being Denny.
