Established in 1983, The Show Me St. Louis Classic Invitational Bowling Tournament (SMC) is a sports organization that works toward creating and maintaining a safe, inclusive, and equitable environment for LGBTQIA+ community. We are dedicated to the promotion of amateur bowling for all persons regardless of any identity with an emphasis on the education and participation of members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
We host a Bowling Tournament every Labor Day weekend which is attended by Bowlers from across the country (and internationally). The 2023 Tournament is September 1st through the 3rd.
To learn more see one of the League officers for more information. We are always seeking new members to help promote SMC throughout the year and encourage everyone to attend our tournament and other tournaments that take place all around the country (and world).
Labor Day Weekend, September 1-3, 2023
On behalf of the Show Me Classic committee, we would like to express our appreciation to everyone who participated in our day of bowling and comedy on Saturday, March 4, 2023, at Shrewsbury Lanes in Shrewsbury, Missouri.
To the 24 bowlers who played, thank you! Special mention goes to Stephen Bodine and Brad Bahr, who ran the 50/50 sales and drawings. Congratulations to our winners: Billy Wells (singles) and Nancy Seymour and Rich Hagan (doubles)!
The Comedy Revue would not have been a success without the phenomenal audience and the assistance of the following people: Rich Hagan, Jeff Keim, Billy Wells, and Susan M Elder for stage work; Justin Brundies, Jeff Rose, and Bella Rose for wardrobe assistance; Joe Doering for DJ and sound; the performers: Mona Lott, Rhoda Rooter, Miss Eva Destruction, Miss Pearl, Betty Bottoms, and Cherry Popp.
Of course, this day would not have been possible without the cooperation of Shrewsbury Lanes: to Brad and Heather, Jason, and the staff of the bowling lanes and lounge, we cannot thank you enough!
