Volunteer Activities - Volunteers will be assigned as lane monitors for Special Olympics athletes and will make sure the athletes bowl in the correct order while offering them encouragement.

Notes: All athletes bowl 2 games. Depending on the number of bowlers per lane and their pace that may take 40 minutes or 2 hours.
