Let’s Get Ready to Battle!
The 5th annual “Battle the Black Hawks” bowling event at Maple Lanes in Waterloo is scheduled for this Sunday, November 24th from 11a.m. to 1 p.m. to benefit Iowa Heartland Habitat for Humanity. Since 2015, Hawks players and fans have gathered at Maple Lanes on University Avenue during a November Sunday to brandish their bowling skills. It’s an opportunity to compete against Waterloo’s world-class athletes in a game where (almost) everyone is starting off on more level terms. Small groups of fans duel with Waterloo players in Maple Lanes’ specialty Mad Game, Battle of the Lanes. The fast-moving game comes with a chance to claim prizes for fans who out-bowl Waterloo’s best hockey players. Registration (including shoe rental) is $15 for adults or $10 for kids age 18 and under.

“During the course of a hockey season, there are a lot of chances to meet the team, but this one is unique,” said Black Hawks President of Business Operations Joe Greene. “I can’t think of another time during the year when fans have the chance to engage in a little friendly competition against the players. I’d like to thank Maple Lanes for making it possible and for simultaneously helping us raise money for Iowa Heartland Habitat for Humanity.”

Fans can register at the Waterloo Black Hawks’ offices in Young Arena, at the Fan Service Table on game nights, or at Maple Lanes on the morning of November 24th, beginning at 10:30 a.m. Maple Lanes is located at 2608 University Avenue in Waterloo.
