Ten Pin Bowling Extravaganza

Besi Besemar January 8, 2013


It’s that time of the year again for the BLAGSS’ Annual Bowling Extravaganza on Tuesday, February 26.

Twenty Six teams from across the LGBT community will compete for the highest team score from two games. The costs remains the same as last year, £56 for a team of up to eight players. You get two games so that is £3.50 per person if there is eight people in your team.

To reserve a place for your team: EMAIL


Spaces are limited to 26 teams in 26 lanes. PLUS,….you get a great social evening out and get chance to meet other sports-minded people, as well as mingle with other LGBT community groups. Everyone switches lanes for the second game, so you have double the chance to mingle and meet new friends! BLAGSS have booked the complete Bowlplex complex for the evening so it will be very very gay!

There will be the usual raffle, to raise funds for MindOut, the LGBT mental health project who are BLAGSS’ designated charity.

Teams should arrive for 7 pm, to get in a little practice, then a sharp start at 7:30 pm.

This is the first event in the inaugural BLAGSS – MindOut Championship: A  series of 6 sports & ‘mental’ activities: bowling, quiz night, treasure hunt, table tennis, fun community sports day, and beach volleyball. Teams will vie against each other throughout the year. Championship points are awarded for event placement:

1st: 5pts, 2nd: 4 pts, 3rd: 3 pts, other top half 2 pts, bottom half 1 pt – and special awards (2 pts each), plus the MindOut fundraising award (5 pts)

Teams are encouraged to participate in the whole series, but that is not a requirement. Registration for each event is separate.

One special award will be given for the bowling event – a Team Costume Award – for the most consistent team dress relating to a theme, such as the team’s sport, profession, or creative idea.

Remember, there are only 26 lanes, so it’s first-come, first served! Please provide a team name, and name and phone number of contact when you email.

Payment is £56, which can be paid by BACS or cheque via mail. Payment must be in advance and instructions for payment will be emailed to you when you book a place.
