Video from Rob Patterson's near-perfect game last night. Amazing how he was able to joke around after throwing 11 strikes in a row! What a great sport! Thanks to Shawn Eby for putting the video together so nicely!
The Bathtub Parade ...we are lining up....
Here is an awesome shot by Cory - one of the leaders from Academy of Fun.

Incredibly impressed with Bretchin Lanes. We contacted them to host our soccer party. The party host was extremely accommodating, I gave her some price points that our families were comfortable paying..., and she came back with a number of options all within our price point and excellent value for the price. Our party was a huge success and the staff present were so kind and accommodating for our group. They handled everything, all we had to do is show up. Highly recommend Bretchin Lanes for any parties! Thank you for hosting us!

A BIG thank you to Wendy for going above & beyond!! After finishing a 3 hr. hike Wednesday in the rain, a friend & I were bowling at Brechin Lanes & I absentmindedly forgot my wet, muddy rain pants th...ere. My husband went to pick them up & not only were they found but Wendy had personally brought them home & washed them! Wendy you rock!! Thank you so much! See More

Went with my daughter's school. Place is packed with kids and they don't offer any water!
Ridiculous they want you to buy bottled water!

Hey Folks

Just a reminder that tonight is our Monthly tournament.

Because of this, we will still be having our $12.00 Friday night special but there will be no glow bowling.


If you are thinking of coming down, make sure to call ahead to reserve a lane.

Good luck to all the bowlers in the Doubles tournament tonight!
