Lanes Summer Leagues are now forming. Three of their leagues
have a free bowling ball giveaway with them. New to this type of
league is our Sports League. Participants will receive a bowling
ball, bag, and towel from the Cubs, Cardinals, or any NFL team of
their choice. This league will bowl on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm.
Sundays will have the Sunday Mixed League again. Those more
competitive will want to check out Thursday's Super 4s League.
As they did last summer, all league participants
will get 4 FREE games of bowling every day. This is worth over
