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!
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 sure next 9-pin to have a camera AND use it!!! NOTE: this is Sue Muzik bowling in her own alley!!!!
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.
Our annual Easter Brunch at Fox and Hounds was such a great success! We served over 30 supporters and raised $500 for our bowling tournament coming this November.
Thank you to everyone who joined us, and a Great Big Thank You to the staff at the Fox and Hounds, the Portland Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence Rhoda, Donna and Sara, plus our own PEEP Aaron!
We had 7 contestants involved in the Easter Bonnet/Basket contest with the top 2 winning prizes of their choice. The Sisters worked the room, as well as our sweet yellow PEEP to sell tickets and make folks happy. Please see the photos of all the smiling faces!
We look forward to seeing everyone next year at this fun filled event!
