2nd Annual Eastern Shore Classic

Our goal for the 3 days of this tournament is to create a family-friendly atmosphere for all ages, with a tournament twist. 

"Many other sports have made their games an experience; which is exactly what we are planning to do with this tournament, make it an all-inclusive deal, for one price, that you can bring your whole family to...". ~ Sara Chapman

With this in mind, the weekend will involve much of the entire city of Pocomoke including family-friendly deals and discounts at many businesses, as well as a miniature fair outside of the Eastern Shore Lanes bowling alley. Plan on kids' games, food trucks, and vendors to fill the gaps between bowling sessions.
