FIMU ry, Suomen Keilailuliitto, Helsingin Bowlingliitto and Helsinginkadun Fun Bowling got together with Show Racism the Red Card -project. They invited over 40 people to try bowling in Kallio. The group had people from various cultural backgrounds from Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa.
Bowling wasn’t familiar to the participants and many tried it for the first time. At first they learned some basic infos about bowling and got advices from professional bowling instructors. The amount of knocked down bowling pins grew quickly. The atmosphere was enthusiastic and participants gave a lot of positive feedback from the day.
Keilaaja-magazine wrote about the event in May issue.
