The 2019 “No Experience Required” Respiratory Care Foundation of Texas Benefit Bowling Tournament will be held on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, at the AMF Westview Lanes in Waco, Texas. This event is designed to have fun and friendly competition for all skill level of bowlers and will act as the main fundraising event for the Respiratory Care Foundation of Texas.
Each 4-person team will consist of a team captain and 3 supporting team members. The event theme is “No Experience Required” but to liven up the event a little bit more, we ask each team to come up with a team “theme” and dress in that theme during the time of play. A Committee Choice Award will be awarded to the team with the most unique outfit. If you are an individual and would like us to place you on a team, we can do that as well, just register as an individual and we will put you on a team. We will connect all individuals with their respective team members prior to the event so you can get together and come up with your team name and theme together.
Trophies for first, second and third place will be awarded to the 3 teams with the highest 3-game accumulative team scores based on the official scores provided to the tournament committee by the bowling alley. Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony following the bowling tournament.
Bowling shoe rental, bowling fees, unlimited soda, and a cheese pizza bar is included in the tournament registration. Alcohol and other food can be purchased from the alley snack bar. We highly encourage spectators to come and cheer on the teams, but they will be responsible for providing their own food and beverages.
Tournament registration fees and all raffle and buy-in pot fees are tax deductible as the Respiratory Care Foundation of Texas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Proof of donation will be provided upon request.
