–AMF Southwest Renovation Underway

The long-awaited renovation started the week of February 3rd.

Business and leagues will be minimally impacted during business hours. Most of the construction will be done during the overnight hours.

Areas impacted during this process will be the meeting room and lockers which will be eliminated to make room for Robb’s brand new Pro Shop.

Your understanding is appreciated and AMF Southwest Lanes hopes you will look forward to the upgrades this remodel will bring.

Optional high pots, singles, and 3-6-9. Handicapped and fun bowling with some great local bowlers! And, once a month, a No-Tap Tournament will be scheduled!!

**Strike Pot is a new game we started. It’s about purchasing raffle tickets for $5 each. During the second game we draw one ticket and that person must bowl a strike for the cash in the pot. If a strike isn’t bowled, then that person gets $10 and the amount is rolled over. If a person misses a week or more and chooses to participate for the total, they must pay $5 per week missed; if not, they only get amount raised that day if their ticket is drawn and they bowl a strike.

GET THEM WHILE THEY LAST!! Danielle Looney has created Coffee Club Tee’s!! She is selling them for $20 each and they are available in a variety of colors. You can also have your name put on them (it can be placed on the front below the logo or on the back across the shoulders) for a total cost of $25. If you would like to sport one of these, send Danielle Looney a message on Facebook and you are set!
