Bay Alumni Madness bowling event returns in March

The class raising the most funds is the King Pin. Bowling pins are painted by 1975 Bay graduate and artist, Randall Oldrieve.

The fourth annual Bay Alumni Madness will be held Saturday, March 28, 6:00 p.m., at Bay Lanes. Early bird pricing available until March 18. Last year approximately 100 graduates from the 1950s to 2006 participated.

Alumni Madness is a bowling and social event. This is the Bay Alumni Foundation’s only event to support the funding of Senior Scholarship Awards. These scholarships are presented at the Kiwanis Academic Award night in May at Bay High School. The foundation has a goal to present these scholarship achievement awards to three seniors in the amount of $1,000 each. The awarded amounts are sent directly to their attending college.

Classes compete for the King Pin trophy (most funds raised) and the Rocket Pin trophy (most pins). Don’t bowl? Just like school …. attendance counts! Your social ticket will count to help the class win the King Pin!

Winning class years will be displayed on bowling pins hand-painted by 1975 Bay graduate and artist, Randall Oldrieve. These trophies will be on display in the high school sports hall until the next Alumni Madness. Last year, the Class of ‘75 defended their Rocket Pin title and the Class of ‘77 won the King Pin raising the most money.

Last year all the participants had a good time and returning to Bay Lanes brought back memories for most. The average score of all bowlers was 106 with scores ranging from 51 to 244. Not quite Bay High bowling team caliber, but everyone had fun! Many people came to just socialize and enjoy the night. There will be skill and fun prizes throughout the event for bowlers and socializers.

This event has been a success and is growing in size. So please, try to get some classmates together whether you bowl or not and make a mini reunion out of the night with the benefit of helping Bay High students! Friends of Bay High are also more than welcome. To register, donate or for more information visit:
