Summer leagues now forming

We’re getting ready for some changes around here.

Tis the season for nice weather (except for the minor irritation of a few floods), when everybody starts heading outside. Well, don’t forget about us! We are air-conditioned. Not only that, we are setting up shop for our summer programs.

Summer leagues are now forming and “Weird Wednesdays” with $1.25 bowling, trivia fun, magic wand game and lots more are in the works. I will give you specific dates in the next installment, just want to get you thinking about scheduling us in your summer activities. Church groups, school outings and family reunions are all possibilities.

Starting in May and through the summer, we will be closed on Sundays. We will be open on the second Sunday of each month for our No-Tap bowlers. Any other openings on Sunday will be on a reservation basis.
