QUICK LANE BOWL EVENTS
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE UNIQUE DETROIT ACTIVITIES SURROUNDING THE QUICK LANE BOWL
Upon arrival, the two teams will gather for an evening of fun with a trip to the Fowling Warehouse. The football bowling pin game known as Fowling™, is a hybrid game that combines elements of football, bowling and horseshoes. The object of the game is for teams to be the first to knock down all their opponent’s pins by throwing a football at 10 bowling pins. See below to check out the action by Boston College and Maryland as they spent their time in Detroit off the field. Who will be the next Quick Lane Bowl Fowling Winner?
Lending a helping hand, the teams of the Quick Lane Bowl, are able to make a difference at Gleaners Community Food Bank. Gleaners distributes food for more than 90,000 meals each day to more than 550 partner agencies in five southeast Michigan counties. Players, coaches and staff support packing and producing to support school-based mobile pantries. Gleaners also works closely with schools to help keep children from falling behind due to hunger. Teams participating in the Quick Lane Bowl help to provide food to kids which leads them to active, healthy lives, and for that, we thank them for their actions!
Detroit gives a formal warm welcome to the teams, travel party, PAL families & VIP sponsors as they arrive at the Henry Ford Museum for a welcome dinner. They first gather in the Anderson Theatre for a short VIP football panel discussion, then head into the Museum for a buffet dinner as well as desserts. After dinner, everyone is invited to privately tour the historical Museum.
The Quick Lane Bowl sets to enhance the holiday spirits of our guests while they experience Christmas Day in Detroit! With an outing to Downtown Detroit, the teams, children and families have the opportunity to ice skate in Campus Martius Park. See the fun, as the guests have exclusive time on the ice, with a wonderful view of a 60 foot Holiday Tree by the skating area below. The rink is privately open to the teams and travel party for a set amount of time and then opens to the public shortly after.
As the teams and coaching staffs work to prepare themselves for a great game of football, the Quick Lane Bowl looks to take care of the traveling families, as well. Picked carefully, there are multiple events held throughout the weekend at a couple of the most unique places in Detroit.
Somerset Mall – Private shopping for the travel parties is a chance to enjoy anchor stores such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Ave, Nordstrom, and Macy’s. With more than 180 specialty stores at Detroit’s finest mall, there is something for everyone!
Build-A-Bear Workshop – With another opportunity to visit Somerset Mall, children can participate in the fun activity of building a bear or an animal to take home. Even special packages, including clothes, accessories and discounts are made for these very important people to use.
