About Us Banner


CHIT, the Capital Halloween Invitational Tournament, is the Washington DC area's gay bowling tournament for the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. The tournament has been held for over 35 years as a fixture in the IGBO (International Gay Bowling Organization) calendar. Although we are a Halloween-focused event, there have been a range of fun themes with CHIT enjoying a Fiesta celebration, a Movie marathon or even a Broadway showcase in earlier years. Thanks to all of the past Directors, Committee Chairs, Volunteers and Bowlers who have kept CHIT rolling over the years.

This year's committee (listed below) welcomes you to Falls Church, VA on November 1st - 3rd, 2024 and looks forward to seeing you. With the tournament starting on Friday, November 1st, we felt it was a great opportunity to have our special Day of the Dead Wood theme. Hope you come join us for the Fiesta!
