Established in 1981, The Missouri and Kansas Invitational Tournament (MAKIT) is to serve as a catalyst to advance and promote: growth, development, outreach, and friendship of LGBTQIA+ bowlers and supporters across the region. MAKIT is dedicated to the promotion of amateur bowling for all persons regardless of any identity with an emphasis on the education and participation of members of the LGBTQIA+ community. MAKIT will take an active leadership role in encouraging, mentoring, and developing LGBTQIA+ members of the community and fostering relationships with other like-minded organizations.
Co-Director Barry Bishop came out by joining a gay bowling league, discovered IGBO tournaments & the rest is history. Barry was secretary for MAKIT tourneys and an IGBO rep. Not one to rush into things, after eleven years it was time.
DJ Barrymix will spin your favorite party jams.
Alan Emmons is one of MAKIT's Co-Directors. He has been bowling since age 6 and bowling in IGBO tournaments since 2009.
He is a caffeine dependent life form who enjoys being on the lanes and behind the scenes.
Todd Denmark is MAKIT's Director at Large. Even though he has been bowling in Gay leagues and tournaments for 25 years he still cannot throw a proper hook ball.
Someone should teach him sometime.
