Special Olympics Texas Area 18 - Permian Basin/Big Bend will host their 2021 Bowling Competition on Saturday, December 11, 2021 at Diamond Lanes.

This event will begin at 9:00 am with Opening Ceremonies, followed by competition at 9:30am.

We encourage the community to come out and cheer on our athletes as they compete in this year's competition.  Special Olympics Texas events are open to the public and we encourage the attendance of families, volunteers, community partners, and spectators!

Athlete Safety:  All athletes must have a current Medical and Covid-19 Waiver on file with the Area SOTX office before they can participate in any practices.  If your athletes are missing either of these documents they will not be able to participate in the event.

Volunteers:  If you are interested in volunteering for this event or other Special Olympics Texas events, you may email or call 806-939-1631.  Volunteers that have signed up for any events must present a picture identification card upon registration in order to volunteer for the day. 

SOTX Covid-19 Statement:   Indoor activities, with several safety measures in place, are permitted at Special Olympics Texas.

The Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) Mitigation Committee has made the decision to additionally permit indoor in-person activities (indoor sports, fundraisers, LETR events, etc.) with several safety modifications in place.  All safety measures found on our training page are required for indoor activities.

We strongly encourage all participants to be fully vaccinated.

In addition to our strong recommendation of the vaccine, all participants must complete the Covid-19 waiver as well as Athletes having a current Medical on file before their return to activities.  

When not in the field of play, all participants (including spectators and family members) must wear a mask and practice social distancing.  High fives and other contact mannerisms should be avoided.  

Additionally, the Mitigation Committee and Regional Executive Director can pause upcoming activities at any time if they feel a certain area may have an unusually unsafe up rise in local Covid-19 cases.

If any members of a delegation who participated in SOTX practices and/or events test positive for Covid-19, the delegation must quarantine 14 days before returning to SOTX activities.  Additionally, the individual(s) who tested positive must have a negative test result before returning to SOTX activities.
