A video game that gets you up and moving? You bet!Sign up now for the LOACC's Wii Bowling Tourney

SUBMITTED PHOTO  - Ever tried Wii bowling? It is simple and fun. You can learn how to play the game quickly and participate in the LOACCs Wii Bowling Tournament taking place Aug. 7.

I have to admit that when the Wii was first introduced, I thought it would flop, assuming no one would want to stand up and move in order to play a video game.

I couldn't have been more wrong.

The Wii was a phenomenal success; not only did it get the typical video game player off the couch, but it was also a game all generations can play together.

With that in mind, the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center's Kim Vermillion will host a Wii bowling tournament — in the air-conditioned comfort of the center — from 1-4 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 7. The cost is $5 per player, and there will be a prize for the top winner.

Bowling with the Wii is super easy. Don't let the idea of it being a video game intimidate you, even if you have never played. It is as simple as holding a button and swinging your arm. You can even do it while seated.

This is a great opportunity to experience the fun of video games among friends who support you at any skill level — and it doesn't take much skill to have success. Don't miss out on the fun — call today to register.

The lunch menu this week features fish tacos on Friday, July 13; chicken pasta bake on Monday, July 16; and macaroni and cheese with Polish dogs on Wednesday, July 18. Cost is a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.

The LOACC is located at 505 G Ave., Lake Oswego, 97034. A list of activities and support groups can be found on our website,, under the Calendar banner.
