State Bowling - Last chance to guarantee a spot
- Final reminder for the 2007 State Bowling (this weekend).
We only have room for five more teams on Sunday. We're only doing 24
teams (9 AM session) unless we get a "bunch" of last second
registrations. So please let me know ASAP if your chapter is
thinking about sending a team but has yet to register in order to
lock in on one of the five remaining spots.
It looks like were going to have a good turnout for the social on
Saturday (starts around 5:15 at the entertainment center). Don't be
a stranger....if your running a chapter project on Saturday, come on
up (or down) for some fun after you are finished. For non-bowlers,
it's $3 (unless you are on State Staff (DD's to President - nametag

We're having a social for all bowlers following Saturdays event in
the ballroom at the facility. There will be a meat/cheese tray, chips
& salsa, and munchies. This will be free to all bowlers, state staff
(from DD's to the President). Everyone else is welcome to attend for
a nominal fee of $3. This will start around 5:15 and will last
until ???. There is a live band playing that night called loose
cannon (www.loosecannonrocks.com). They are an eighties/nineties rock
and roll band. If you're planning on having a lot of fun Saturday
night, you may want to book a reservation at the hotel in North
Branch. Hotel accommodations can be made at AmericInn Lodge and
Suites in North Branch at 877-854-4605 (www.americinn-

On Sunday morning, there will be an all-u-can-eat breakfast buffet
from 10 AM to 2 PM for $9.95, but you cannot take the food out of the
buffet area like you were able to at Cedarvale. However, they do
have a snack bar (rolls, nachos, pretzels, etc) and/or you can order
of the menu and eat at the lanes if you cannot wait until the end of
the tournament for the buffet.
