Get Up and Bowl for Special Olympics February 26 

The 6th Annual Get Up and Bowl for Special Olympics will be held this Sunday, February 26 at Corner Lanes in Spirit Lake.

Organizer Nancy Vierkant says, extra slots have been added due to the growth of the event.  "We actually filled all our 48 normal time spots that we have.  We as a group decided to add 9:30 am to our time slots of bowling, so we can now take 60 teams, and we have 3 time slots remaining, so we'd love to get those filled, too."

 She notes that everyone is invited to stop by for the silent auction.  "If you've never been out there, it is really quite the scene to see.  All our athletes are there.  They're bowling with different teams.  It's not about the skill of bowling, we're building camaraderie, getting our athletes and our community involved with each other.  Also, we do have a great silent auction.  We have great contributors throughout our entire community, and really have gotten some great things outside our community for some great silent auction items.  There's really something for everyone from gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses and massages to sports tickets, Hawkeye tickets, Cyclone tickets, casino overnight packages.  Really a lot of great things."

Get Up and Bowl for Special Olympics will get underway at 9:30 Sunday morning.
