Bowser Bash - October 2006

The theme for this year's Bowser Bash event was "Pirates", inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The event was held at the Doubletree Hotel & Conference Center (formerly the Radisson Hotel), and featured lots of food and fun for everyone. There were great items included in the silent and live auctions.
