Glow Bowling: modern twist on classic pastime

This past Saturday, Cabrini’s CAP Board and some Cabrini students departed campus at 9:30 p.m. to head over to Devon Lanes for their first Glow Bowling trip.

Glow bowling is a new trend and puts and interesting twist on an “old-fashioned” past time. It is often referred to as “disco bowling in the new millennium.”

What makes glow bowling different from traditional bowling is the atmosphere it provides to participants. The bowling alley is decorated with black lights, fog machines, lasers, strobe lights and a “club” atmosphere. Of course, they play music as well. Glow bowling has a suggested dress code, which is wear all white or bright clothing, which will cause the bowlers’ clothes to glow and fit in with the décor of the bowling alley.

Along with the five CAP Board members who went, about 20 students took the trip to Devon Lanes to experience glow bowling with their friends.

This trip was a first for Cabrini’s CAP Board, but it may not be their last. They seemed to receive positive feedback from the outing.

“Over all, I think the event went well. There were some bumps while there, but nothing too big. I know when I asked the students on my van if they had fun, they all responded yes and that they would like to see this even happen again,” Rachel Layden, junior English major and marketing chair for CAP Board, said.

If you are looking for something to do on a Saturday and want to try something new, give glow bowling a try! Keep an eye out on the Cabrini Calendar for the next CAP Board glow bowl trip.
