A free bowling event was hosted by Lewis and Clark Community College at Bowl Haven Lanes in Alton, on Thursday, Oct. 12. Each semester, LC students and staff are encouraged to form teams and compete at Bowl Haven Lanes for a chance to win monetary cash prizes as individuals or as a team.  

Students and staff gathered at the bowling alley to not only bowl for free but to also enjoy free pizza. The event started at 2 p.m. and ran through 4 p.m. Around 25 participants attended, split into five teams to try their luck on the lanes. 

 “It was nice meeting my friends,” Lauren Wright expressed during her time bowling.  

Everyone on the lanes flashed a radiant smile on their faces and seemed to genuinely enjoy the time they were having. For most it wasn’t about the prizes It was a chance to relax and have fun with their peers. 

Speaking of prizes, Thursday night’s bowling games ended with two sets of winners. The bowlers who scored highest over three games were Tyruis Jones in first place, winning a prize of $20, and Byron Stampley in second place, winning a prize of $10. The two teams who scored the highest out of three games won $20 vending machine cards for first place and $10 vending machine cards for second place.  

Jared Hennings, the student activities coordinator, shared that the free bowling event happens once during each semester. So, if you missed out on or had a blast at this event, you can look out for the next bout of free bowling in the Spring 2024 semester!
