Success! February 9-Pin No-Tap Fundraiser

February’s “Mardi Gras Fun Bowling Night” 9-Pin No-Tap fundraiser was a great success! We raised over $1000 toward the prize fund for the Bridgetown Invitational Tournament this October.

The Bridgetown Invitational Tournament is scheduled for October 7-9, 2022, at Superplay in Beaverton, Oregon.

Congratulations to Cole, Jim, and Lenore, the winners of the three games at the fundraiser. We loved watching you play and cheering you on!

Thanks to Superplay and staff for their support and help. We look forward to holding more great events at Superplay as well as our regular bowling season.

And thanks to everyone who came, bowled, contributed time or support, dressed up in their Mardi Gras finest, and otherwise helped make the fundraiser so much fun and a success.
