It is becoming more and more popular here to hold head to head competition in a league format. And, another was to start tonight. I have been enjoying the Petersn Point league I am in, and wondered about this one.

So, I went to the lanes early to snoop, and found the House CLOSED. One of the workers, who knows me, let me in, where I found a large section of the dropped ceiling, lying on the floor.

It seems that over the years, they have attached lights, speakers, hang banners and a bunch of other stuff from the grid of the ceiling panels. And, it finally gave way, crashing on the approaches of a dozen lanes. Not only did this section fall, but the ceiling was just hanging in the rest of the House in either direction.

the Manager said they will have it fixed by tomorrow. Ha, being in Construction for a number of years tells me it will take 24 hours just tosecure or remove other places that are in jeopardy. To fully rebuild the ceiling will take some time.

As I talked with the laneman, he also showed me a panel that he picked up wit speaker wires attached, and a metal box, containing circuitry for the cosmic bowling lights. Seems over the years, a lot has been attached to the ceiling without being attached to the roof trusses. The ceiling grid is NOT structurally sound to support that weight.

I now wonder, this is probably the same technique that other Houses use as well. Glad no one was injured.
