Slovenian Irish Slo-Ish Bowling Tournament

Slovenian Irish Slo-Ish Bowling Tournament
April 2015

The Slo-Ish bowling tournament started 4 years ago in April 2012. Colleen Frank was on her way to a Slovenian meeting and thought there should be an event that both ethnic groups did together and maybe grow the memberships of both groups. Bowling came to mind.

When she went to the SNPJ meeting they loved the idea. She also met with the board of the Irish Club and they loved the idea.

Colleen and her Slovenian friend Gina Volpe have been organizing it ever since.

The groups involved are SNPJ Loyalites Lodge #158, Slovenian Society Home- Euclid, and the Irish American Club Eastside.

They support both groups by trading off the hosting of the event. One year the after party is at the Irish American Club Pub and the next year it at the Slovenian Home/Recher Hall Club Room.

You don't have to be a member of either organization to bowl. They average about 72 bowlers each year.

  • 2015 Winners were the Irish American Club - Tim Desan and Colleen Frank
  • 2014 Slovenians Craig and Jake Young
  • 2013 Slovenians Kim and Rick Miller
  • 2012 Irish Jan and Joe Manarino
