The Center for Coastal Geology in St. Petersburg sponsored a 'league' of junior bowlers for a Bowl-A-Thon fundraiser on March 4th. Cassidy Reich, Chase Kalivas, and Hannah Krohn represented the USGS at the annual event to benefit the University of South Florida (USF) Oasis Program. The Oasis Program is an alternative education program supported by USF and Pinellas County schools to provide enriched educational opportunities on water issues for under-achieving middle school students. The Oasis fundraiser asked for contributions based on the number of points scored by the bowlers. Scoring/fundraising was based on a cumulative total for three games. The children were allowed to use bumpers, which prevent them from throwing gutter balls. The junior bowlers all did better than the 70 points per game their parents predicted and ended up raising $206.80 for the event. The parent/child teams were given names just for fun. Only the children were bowlers.

Skyway Champions—Chris and Cassidy Reich (age 3 and a half),

Studebaker Ramblers—Erica Heeg-Beck and Chase Kalivas (age 4), and

Getting's All-Stars—Dennis and Hannah Krohn (age 6).

The USGS joins a growing list of Tampa Bay businesses including the Devil Rays, law firms, merchants, and museums in supporting this grass-roots USF cause.
