    New Bowling Alley in Ames

    I just heard they are constructing a new bowling alley in Dakota Crossing (Mortensen and South Dakota, I think). I didn't know there was that much demand in Ames for a third bowling alley, but if the one on Duff had flood damage, there is definitely demand for it.

    Re: New Bowling Alley in Ames

    Maybe if they find a compromise between price and quality there would be a little more demand...

    Is that what the perfect games sign that has been up for about a year is all about? It's said that it is coming soon but I really didn't know what it was.

    I don't own a Wii yet

    Maybe I should start a "Help Flag Guy buy a Wii" funding drive...

    Just kidding. Soliciting funds while on a government computer is one of the things that could actually cost me my job around here...

    A couple years back I heard rumors that they were going to build one by West Town Pube...guess they were true. It would have been nice if it was there while I lived out on Steinbeck.

    We joined a bowling league this year for the first time and had a blast. $12pp per week and you got three games, a pitcher of beer and a pizza... Not too bad for Tuesday night entertainment.

    The gentleman who owns Westowne is a part owner in the new bowling alley being built.

    Correct, and they are building it fairly quickly. It should be done in a little bit.
