Registration now open for 6th annual Beach Chamber Bowling Bash

By Staff | Jul 3, 2019

Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce members have an opportunity to try their hand at bowling during the 6th annual Beach Chamber Bowling Bash later this month, and they’re hoping to attract more participants to bowl alongside them.

The annual event will take place from 4 to 9 p.m. Thursday, July 18, at Beach Bowl, Billiards and Sports Bar, 17651 San Carlos Blvd. It is $75 per team, or $14 per individual. The team of up to five players can choose to play from two competitive rounds, 5 to 7 p.m., or 7 to 9 p.m.

“We will be raising money to go back to the chamber and to Beach Bowl,” she said.

There are enough slots for 24 teams this year, which Johnson said they hope to attract. Last year 14 teams took part.

A team winner and an individual score winner will be named. Those interested in registering can do so by Monday, July 15 by visiting www.fortmyersbeach.org, emailing intern@fmbchamber.org, or calling 239-454-7500.

“It’s a fun event for our chamber members to get together and get some of their competitive spirit out while having fun,” operations intern Katy Johnson said. “Each team will play two games.”

Participants are asked to dress in their best jungle costume with a chance to win a contest. Johnson said the jungle costume theme is up to the player’s interpretation.

“I’m personally going to wear more of an explorer costume. A researcher out in the jungle,” Johnson said.

The event will include free appetizers and a cash bar. For those who do not want to bowl but want to take part in the event, it will be $10, which still includes free appetizers and a cash bar.

“It’s just a way to have fun during the work week,” Johnson said.

There are $50 sponsorships available for those who want to hang their company’s banner during the event. Those interested can email intern@fmbchamber.com.
