Team Registration underway for Get Up & Bowl for Special Olympics 

The 9th Annual Get Up and Bowl for Special Olympics fundraiser will be held on March 1st at Corner Lanes in Spirit Lake.

Organizer Nancy Vierkant says team registration is underway.  "We are taking team registrations, they're coming in pretty steady.  We have lots of openings yet on our 11 o'clock time frame and on the 4:15, which is a popular one because that silent auction ends at 5 o'clock, so you're right there to get those final bids in.  It's a great opportunity to get your friends, your family, church groups, employees, up to 6 bowlers.  It's a great time.  You bowl for 90 minutes and you get a free pizza.  Registration is $150, so you can split it between 6 and have a great afternoon for $25 a piece, or see if that employer or one of your sponsors or something would pay for that registration, as well."

She notes that proceeds from the event help local Special Olympic Athletes.  "All that money that we are generating here is staying local to make sure that they get all the opportunities to participate all over the state through their competitions, new equipment, and one of the big things they really want this year is, they need some updates on their uniforms.  So, that is on the docket this year for all those proceeds that we hope to bring in at Get Up & Bowl."

Silent Auction donations are also being accepted at this time.
