Burien Seniors Knock ‘Em Down To Win ‘ShapeUp Wii Bowling Tournament’
Huge congrats go out to a team of local sports stars who won a recent tournament – we’re talking of course about a group of Burien Seniors who won the ‘ShapeUp Wii Bowling Tournament’ last week!
This virtual bowling sport, which uses the Nintendo Wii game system, is a “fall prevention program funded by King County Emergency Services, with the intention to reduce and prevent falls for seniors ages 50 and up.”
This is the 5th ShapeUp Bowling Tournament so far, and everyone at The B-Town Blog tips our virtual bowling pins in their general direction.
The team consisted of:
- Rosalie Farula
- Charlene Carlson
- Rosie Stapleton (who also placed 2nd for highest overall score.)
- Mary Jurisich

If you’re a senior interested in Wii bowling or other sports, our friends at Burien Parks are offering $10 off for every NEW movement class that you try out. This includes all exercise, dance and Matter of Balance classes.
They also have a Sitting Fit class that started at Burien Park Apartments that meets MWF from 3:30-4:30pm, running 10 weeks for $5.
