Are You Interested in an Intramural Bowling League?

Logan University’s Sports and Recreation department is attempting to gauge student’s interest in organizing an Intramural Bowling league. The proposed activity would consist of 2-5 player teams, competing in a 4-6 week round-robin style league, with a single-elimination tournament at the end. A match will consist of 2-3 games.

Teams will compete one or two days per week; Monday through Thursday, beginning at 4:00p. Anticipated start date is Tuesday, January 20. League will be a co-rec league, so each team can be made up of any mix of men and women. A bowling handicap system will be used so that participants with varying levels of skill and ability will have an equal chance of winning.

All Logan University students, faculty and staff members are eligible. Participants are limited to playing on only one team.

The league will be hosted by West County Bowling Lanes at 15727 Manchester Road, Ellisville, MO  63011.

Cost is expected to be around $3.00 per participant per night. 

If you are interested, please send an email to Robert Powell at Robert.Powell@logan.edu.

Fundraising Opportunity for Non-Profit Groups & Organizations

The Purser Center is currently looking for non-profit groups or organizations to run a concession stand during dance competitions held at the Purser Center. Dance competitions are high volume and long running events that last throughout a weekend. This would be a great opportunity for any non-profit or charitable organization looking for a way to raise money.  

Groups should be prepared to:
•        Provide all staffing (2-3 people throughout the suggested timeframe)
•        Supply food and beverage product for the concession stand
•       Provide any food and beverage equipment needed to produce food and beverage products

Typical concession stand fare includes hot dogs, pretzels, nachos, candy, chips and soda. The Purser Center will provide set guidelines regarding menu items and sale prices.  

A Logan University student, faculty, staff or graduate must be an active participant in the non-profit organization in order to participate in this opportunity.  
All profits raised by the non-profit are kept by the non-profit.  
Available concession stand dates and suggested hours are as follows:

If interested, please contact Jennifer Rohrer at Jennifer.Rohrer@logan.edu by Monday, January 26th.  Should more groups show interest than dates are available, a raffle will be performed.  Groups will be randomly assigned to a weekend. If you know that a weekend will not work for a group, please note when emailing Jennifer. Groups will be notified of which weekend they will run a concession stand on Wednesday, January 28. Please only sign up if your group can commit to work a full weekend of the above listed dates.
