The booster club, who financially supports our bowling team, is putting on an online auction for their winter fundraiser. In order to support them in this effort the bowling team will be putting together a “game night” basket for the booster club to auction off. We are asking for gift donation of a new (unopened) game or a small monetary donation of at least $5 from each bowler to purchase items for the basket. These donations will be used to purchase popcorn, a large bowl, and games to complete our auction donation. Please bring items to practice on Monday if possible, we will still accept items at our first practice of the new year. Thank you for supporting us and the booster club in this effort!

Bowlers should wear jerseys and jeans. Those who do not have jerseys yet will be receiving them at Monday’s practice. It is very important that bowlers have their jerseys and jeans on Wednesday. Those not in proper uniform will not be in the picture. Since we are in New Hampton, there will not be time for anyone to run proper attire to the bowling alley. Please unsure you have this taken care of.
The team photo will be taken with masks. Individuals will have the option of taking a picture with or without a mask.
