On Saturday, February 10 Special Olympics PEI hosted the 4th annual Big Chill Bowling tournament in Summerside at the Credit Union Place. In addition to bowling, athletes had the opportunity to participate in a Healthy Athletes Health Promotion screening and an online Special Olympics International Athlete Satisfaction Survey.
The Big Chill offers PEI’s 5-Pin bowlers a valuable additional competition opportunity each year. 5-Pin bowling is Special Olympics PEI’s most popular sport, with 45% of our athletes participating. Prior to the Big Chill the majority of Islander bowlers had only one competitive opportunity annually. Open to bowling athletes from across the province, this quality competition offers much more than a competitive event.
