2015 Non-Profit Partner

Bridgetown Invitational Tournament is a 501 (c) (3) Oregon non profit corporation. Our Mission is to promote amateur bowling events in Portland and to make our world a better place to live. Each year we plan to give out 60% of our leftover monies to other non-profits.

This year we chose New Avenues for Youths: Our mission is to work in partnership with our community to prevent youth homelessness and provide homeless and at-risk young people the resources and skills needed to lead healthy, productive lives. Our Vision is a community in which all young people have a safe place to call home and the support needed to thrive. New Avenues for Youths was formed in 1997. Note: 40% of the homeless youths today have a history of the foster care system and 40% of all homeless youths identify as a member of the LBGTQ community! We proudly and willingly agree is support such a great non-profit this year!


9-Pin No-Tap Results

Thank-you Thank-you Thank-you to 44 people who attended our fundraiser event on May 22nd! We are deeply honored you chose to spend your Friday night with us. Well, we were a success!! With 44 bowlers, we were able to hand out 3 top score cash prizes of $25 each – although a person could only win once!

Many raffle prizes were won – everyone had a GREAT TIME – friends laughed all night long! The three scores to mention are: Braddley 256 in first game, Brian turn in 250 in the second game and Cole ALMOST rolled a 300 in the third game, but missed out in the 11 frame; his score was 287!

Unfortunately, we did not take any photos (what is up with that?) – so I am adding some old photos from years past bowling events for your enjoyment! We will make surVanc team 03-03e next 9-pin to have a camera AND use it!!! NOTE: this is Sue Muzik bowling in her own alley!!!! Sue alley bowl

Next 9-Pin No-Tap is June 26th at Kellogg – come play on wooden lanes – at 7PM and the cost is $15. The cost does included shoes if you need them! Thanks again to everyone who attended and we hope to see even more in June!

9 pin no-tap
An apparent perfect hit for a strike but one pin is left standing.
9-Pin No-Tap Bowling-is a variation of tenpin bowling. The general rules are the same as they are for tenpin bowling. If a bowler knocks down nine pins on their first shot, it is scored as a strike. the pins are then reset and you move on to the next bowler/next frame. The bowler does not have to shoot a second shot. Knocking down all pins still counts as a strike also.
