On April 30, 2008, we started the 3 week process of installing
the new synthetic lanes.
The new lanes arrived at 7 a.m on May 2, 2008
Jamie and Rob are hauling in lane and approach sections on Friday, May 2, 2008. It took
almost 4 hours to unload and haul everything inside.
New lanes are being stacked in the arcade until it is time to install.
A cross sander is used to sand and level the existing wood lane before the synthetic are placed on top
New pindecks are laid out ready to be installed.
Every lane is checked after sanding to make sure it is level within 1/10000 th of an inch.
Week 2- May 5-9
The new synthetic panels have been installed and bowling on the new lane surface started Wednesday
night with the Summer Adult Junior League. Come on down and give them a try. They look GREAT!!
Tom Jones helped lay the first lane panel on Lane 1
The new synthetic panels are about 7/16 inches thick and are laid on top of the wood lane.
The old wood lane acts as a foundation to support the panels.
The lanes on Lanes 1-8 are down, now the pindecks.
Tom Jones rolls the ceremonial first ball down lane 1. IT WAS A STRIKE!!!
A close up look at the difference between the wood lane and approach on the right on Lane 9 vs.
Lane 8 synthetic lane and approach on the left.

The new synthetic lanes not only glow under the blacklights, the approaches do too!!!
