Capital Roots Garden Bowl 2016

capital roots garden bowl trophyThe annual Capital Roots Garden Bowl is coming up January 30 at Uncle Sam Lanes in Troy. It's a bowling-themed fundraiser for the community gardens org. How-it-works-blurbage:

Each year, Capital Roots teams up with friends and businesses in the Capital Region for a winter bowling extravaganza called Garden Bowl! In the months leading up to this annual event, bowlers invite donors to sponsor their games. Then they strap on their bowling shoes and compete winning prizes for high scores, highest fundraising, and more!
Whether you throw gutter balls or bowl a perfect 300 you are welcome to join the fun. You have a chance to win ski passes, dining certificates and more while you spend the day bowling with friends, family and co-workers.

The minimum entry fee is $25, though of course, the goal is for teams to raise more than that from donors. The first 50 people to raise $50 or more also get a Garden Bowl t-shirt. Details at that link above.
