Kingpins Night at Bowlmor
InSITE is one of my favorite organizations in the NYC tech community. They bring together graduate students at various schools around NYC (business, law, engineering, computer science, design and PhD and post doctorate programs in natural sciences and medicine) together for a two year program designed to get these talented people deeply engaged in the NYC startup community.
InSITE has been expanding a lot in the past few years and they are working to fund that expansion. That's where Kingpins Night at Bowlmor comes in. Advertised as "New York City’s first and only startup bowling competition. It is a fundraiser and friendly competition for the entrepreneurial community in NYC." It happens on April 15th, tax day, at 7pm at Bowlmor in the Union Square neighborhood.
When the InSITE folks told me about Kingpins at the talk I did last week, I immediately promised to buy a lane and compete. I then explained that while I am a terrible bowler, I can throw a strike between my legs. Asked to demonstrate, I did, forgetting that I was on video. This GIF resulted which I am most certainly going to regret. But it is too good not to share.

It may take me all night of trying to throw that strike between my legs, but try I will. I hope to see you there on April 15th at 7pm for some fun and a good cause. If you or your company wants to get a lane, go here to reserve one.
