Each of the three games will have the nine-pin strike rule, meaning if bowlers knock down nine pins on their first ball they will receive a strike for that frame. The most important thing for participants is to have fun and give to a wonderful cause.
“We have a good time and have a lot of people that come year after year,” Butler said.
Last year there were 19 teams that participated, made up of teams from many of the local businesses around Ottumwa. A lot of the teams were even accompanied by cancer survivors. Individuals who are not currently on a team but want to participate are encouraged to contact Bridge City Bowl at 641-684-9250 or Butler at 641-684-7426.
