Since 2015, two Northwest Florida sci-fi fan groups — STARFLEET‘s USS Continuum and the 501st Legion’s Parjai Squad — have organized one of the most exciting cosplay charity events on the Gulf Coast: the COSTUME BOWL!
Join us on SUNDAY, APRIL 28, 2019, starting at 1 P.M. at CORDOVA LANES BOWLING CENTER (2111 Airport Blvd in Pensacola)!
* Cost for a group is $75 per lane. The price includes three games & bowling shoes for up to six bowlers. OR you can sign up as an individual for only $15. Pre-registering reserves your spot, but it is not required. (It does get you free raffle tickets, however).
* Costumes are also not required! They’re there to add a little fun to the event. But our main goal is to support great charities. Costumes do not have to be sci-fi or fantasy-related, but it does need to be family friendly!
* To add a little fun (and to continue with our fundraising efforts), you can buy yourself a Strike for $5, Gutter balls for your opponents for $2.50, or raise the bumpers for $10 a game.
* Don’t forget about our bake sales & raffles!
* How the Costume Bowl works: because this is organized by a Star Trek fan group and a Star Wars fan group, when you register, you’re asked to join “TEAM FEDERATION” or “TEAM EMPIRE.”
We have ELEVEN AWARDS we give out:
- best bowler
- best team average
- best individual costume
- best costumed theme for a group

The winner of each award (individual or group) scores a point for their respective TEAM to see what franchise has the best local fans!
Many thanks to this year’s sponsors!
