This is a two-day tournament that pits teams each against each other in a friendly/competitive atmosphere. The morning sessions are Singles and Rinks, while the afternoon games are Pairs and Triples.
Team Captains are selected ahead of time and then search for bowlers to fill their ranks. Teams consist of at least five people. You don’t have to wait to be selected. If you’d like to bowl in the Team Tourney, contact Willie Weir and he will place you on a team. You don’t have to be available play both days to participate.
Teams are encouraged to wear team outfits (Team Aloha was in great form in 2009).
THIS IS A GOOD TIME TO SIGN UP FOR 24 ON THE 4TH!!
The Mixer is our big summer shindig where members mix, mingle, dance, bowl and just have an all-around good time. We pick a theme, get dolled up and listen to great music while noshing, sipping and enjoying each other's company. Let's come together to celebrate sunmer and each other in the most beautiful spot in Seattle! We'll raise a glass to toast our hard-working volunteers, without whom this club would not exist! More details and an e-vite soon!
Volunteers Needed!! Contact Jenny Mears at email@example.com

The Holiday Cookie Party is just around the corner. If you haven’t been before, here’s how it works: you bring 2+ dozen of your favorite holiday cookie (or brownies or rum balls, etc). At the end of the party, you leave with an assortment of all the cookies. You do not need to bring cookies to come to the party! It’s really just a chance to come and mingle before the holidays. If it’s nice we bowl. If it’s naughty, we stay indoors and socialize. If you are from Tacoma, you wear shorts and bowl in the rain. Whatever is clever.
We are also hosting a Holiday Drive for YouthCare. Unwrapped gifts can be dropped off at the clubhouse Sunday December 9th between 11am-4pm, and we will deliver them to YouthCare on Monday, December 10th. A list of requested items can be found at: http://www.youthcare.org/holidaygiving
“This can be a very difficult time of year for homeless young people, but your support makes the holiday season brighter for the youth in our care. As you know, holiday drives provide not only the things young people need—warm clothing, shoes and boots, hygiene supplies—but also some of the things they really want—a gift card, headphones, art supplies, and other special items. This drive is a great opportunity to show the young people at YouthCare that their community cares about them. We’d be thrilled to have your support again this season!” - from YouthCare
Please join us on St. Patrick's Day for beers, bowls and a pot o' gold!
We'll have corned beef and cabbage and plenty of beer, you bring a side dish (such as mashed potatoes or soda bread) and be sure to wear some green!
Please RSVP to the Evite from Jenny Mears so we'll know how much corned beef and beer to get!
