Bowling Buddies
Bowling Buddies
The Bowling Buddies, formerly known as the Mother Son Bowl has incorporated a name change, yet is the same all-inclusive bowling event that has been offered for decades by the Recreation Department and the spirit of the event remains as it always has.  The nature of the Bowling event is for a parent/chaperone to bring their child(ren) to bowl with other friends.

When registering:  Select the (1st) child that is attending the dance under 'First Child & Chaperone' - if you have multiple children attending you will add them separately under the 'Additional Child' registration.

Lanes of 6 may be requested upon registering, all others will be randomly seated.  
The Bowling event is all-inclusive:  Chaperones need to be a responsible adult over the age of 17.
When registering:  If you have multiple children attending you will add them separately under the 'Additional Child' registration.

Registrations and Membership Fees for Recreation Programs/Camps and Municipal Pool are non-refundable (unless a program is cancelled by Recreation or the service provider), so please make sure your selections are correct before finalizing your registration.  Payments are via credit/debit card or eCheck with a transaction fee from the processor.
