FAQs

How do I register a team?

The Team Captain selects the team name, where and when the team will bowl, and the team challenge category. The Team Captain can register 2 ways:

  1. Online - Visit the Registration Page on our website to register.
  2. Paper Form - Print off a paper registration from the Registration Page.

How do I register my teammates?

The Team Captain can register his or her teammates either online or by paper.

Online - Create a username and password for each teammate and enter their information into the registration form. This will register the teammate and create an online donation page for them.

Paper Form - the paper registration form is designed to be able to register all team members on a team.

Teammates can also register themselves using one of the above options.

What is the registration fee?

The registration fee is $25 and is 'good faith' money that your team will participate. This secures your lane to ensure you will have a place to bowl the night of the event. Many of our shifts fill up. It counts towards the Team Captain's total pledges.

How do I pay the registration fee?

Online - Go on to your online donation page and make a $25 donation to yourself.

Mail - Send in a check via mail to: 424 Galloway Street, Eau Claire WI 54703. When the Team Captain registers, an invoice will be emailed to the captain if the registration fee hasn't been paid.

How many people are on a team?

Teams consist of 4 to 6 people, but the ideal team size is 5 due to the amount of time it will take each team to bowl.

Can I bowl if I don't raise $100?

We really want the bowlers to try and raise at least $100, but if you fall short, you will still be allowed to participate. However, the $100 is important because we do have expenses related to the event, and it costs us between $20-$37 per bowler (depending on the city) for a bowler to participate in the event. That's why we ask each person to raise at least $100.

Is a certain shift filled?

If a shift is filled, it will be noted on the main page of the online registration system/donation pages. Or if you want to find out, contact Teri-Gene Conlin at teri-gene.conlin@bbbsnw.org or 715-835-0161.

I forgot my username/password, now what?

There is a Forgot Username/Password link on the Sign In screen for the online system. Follow the instructions for the link. If for some reason that doesn't work, contact Teri-Gene Conlin at teri-gene.conlin@bbbsnw.org or 715-835-0161.

How do I collect pledges online?

To collect pledges online, you must register online. This sets up a peronal fundraising page for you. You can then email your friends and family the direct link to your page. You can even edit the photo, your goal, the page information, etc.
