Don’t Miss "Bowling & Boards" - Foundation Fundraiser November 3

Be sure to sign up for the WLA Foundation (WLAF) fundraiser at this year’s Conference on Wednesday, November 3 from 8:00 – 11:00 pm!   This is stacking up to be a fun event not to be missed – and the bowling alley is part of the Kalahari Resort, so no need to drive anywhere!    For those of you who haven’t bowled in a while, this is not your “grandmother’s bowling alley” – but a hi-tech facility that promises to be a lot of fun for bowlers – and non-bowlers alike.

We’ve designed the evening so there’s something for everyone to enjoy.  For those of you who want to bowl – it will be a fast-paced evening of bowling one regular game of tenpins, plus a second “Baker’s Game” designed to go much faster. For those of you who enjoy rooting for (and ribbing) your bowling colleagues, there’s comfortable seating and large tables at the lanes to accommodate the snacks, beverages, and gourmet pizza you’ll be enjoying during the evening.  (Bowlers, take note!  You will need SOCKS to use the bowling shoes the alley supplies.  So … BYOS!  Socks are available from the Kalahari at a cost of $3.00/pr but are NOT part of your registration fee).

If you’d like to test your skills in a more “relaxed” setting, the alley houses an adjacent area of tables and comfortable booths where there’ll be a variety of board games available to challenge your mind and enjoy time with friends and colleagues – a fast-paced game of Trivial Pursuit, fun-filled game of Taboo, cribbage boards, and playing cards are just a few of the choices you’ll have.

And don’t forget the comfortable and inviting bar area (open all evening) where you can simply enjoy conversing and catching up with friends. 

Look for dozens of prize packages to be given out that evening … door prizes … …“mystery” numbers posted throughout the evening that could win you a prize ….  trophies awarded at the end of the evening!

Register your team of four (bowlers AND “boarders”) before the evening’s event and each member will get one ADDITIONAL beverage ticket (which you’ll receive when you arrive at the event). To register your team, send the list of names to Bernie Bellin. Don’t have a team and want to participate?  Not to worry, sign up and come anyway --- we’ll make sure to accommodate you. 

So … unpack that retro bowling shirt or your Campaign for Wisconsin Libraries red t-shirt … register for Bowling & Boards!! … and get ready to enjoy a fun-filled evening with friends and colleagues at the Kalahari!
