There are 20 parking spaces adjoining the bowling alley. 6 are designated handicapped. The other 14 are awarded to the "Bowler of the Month" for each league. Based on pins over average in the previous month. Your name and league is on a post sign directly in front of the space.

Nice touch by the alley.

Do other alleys do anything you would consider special?

That's a great idea. I'd probably be able to bump in the top 14 in a couple of months. The only thing is, i don't have a car. But a deal's a deal, so they should award me with a parking space anyway laugh

Maybe they would let you park your bicycle in that space. Hope you get one. I would like to see that.

There are NO age limits in bowling. smile

We don't have this recognition, though. We're too many youths kicking adult butt, i guess :p

Don't worry, Frostbreath,

You're only 15. You'll get over that "no girl allowed" rule pretty soon. thumbsup

It's all part of being immature, i guess.

Good personal touch on the parking signs.

My home house really tends to play favorites with its patrons. I can walk in by myself or with the wife, and or 2-3 more people at certain times (and I never know what these times are until I'm ready to cash out.LOL)and we'll marathon or I'll marathon. Depending on who is working the main counter depends on how much I pay or we pay. Now please keep in mind that I always approach the main counter with wallet in my hand and with the notion that I constantly hope that my pockets are deep enough! Sometimes I/we pay nada. Sometimes it's half price. Sometimes it's employee discount. Sometimes it's full price. It's not the freebies or discounts that keep me returning. It's just the people that I've gotten to know. Other than that I absolutely hate the shot, the noise, among a couple of things. LOL.

Bowled tonite with my tuesday practice group. Each of us had 7 games. We bowled right in front of the counter. Lisa, Jerry and Jamie were working and joking with us all night. At about 10pm. a huge crowd of people came in to bowl. It's $1.50 a game after 10. The manager usually keeps an open alley on either side of us, but this time, Lisa came over to us and apologized that she had to use the alleys. Unfortunately, she had to put an immature group of high schoolers next to us. They were kidding around, walking in front of us, running from front to back, sometimes 2 or 3 bowlers on the approach at a time. It was really annoying. We closed up shop.

When we went to pay our bill, Lisa appologised again and said bowling was on the house. I refused to accept her charity. So she said, It will be $.25 each, for the whole night.

She really tries to accomodate us, but occasionally, she is swamped with customers. We understand that.
Somehow, she felt bad.

Hey, collect from the paying customers.
I'd rather have the house be solvent than closed.
