Holiday Weight Gain! Bowling Can Help!






Everybody loves Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas -- especially gym owners. That's because they know the combined effects of all that candy, turkey, ham and stuffing will send a brigade of new members through their doors.
There is, however, another way you can get some exercise without resorting to an expensive gym contract -- and all those long lines at the StairMaster.
We're talking about bowling.
While bowling might not rank up there with running a marathon when it comes to pure athletic exertion, it likely burns considerably more calories than you think. It also has the decided benefit of being indoors -- a huge plus during fall weather.
With that in mind, let's go over a few tips for maximizing your calorie burn when at your local lanes.
Bowling Health Facts
Let’s cover the basics first. You may not believe that bowling is a great way to get exercise and lose weight, but the data doesn’t lie. Bowling burns approximately 100 calories per hour, which may be more or less depending on the weight of your ball and how many times you’re up during that hour. Bowling also builds 134 muscles, builds strong bones, sustains hand and eye coordination, and promotes good balance. If you bowl three games, you’ve essentially walked a mile.
Use a calorie tracker
One of the great things about fitness technology is how it makes gathering detailed data about our workouts so easy. By using a smartphone app or a wearable device, you can track how many calories you're burning while bowling. This provides positive reinforcement, and encourages you to push yourself a bit harder.
Bring a friend
It's always easier to burn calories in a group of two, as friends can rely on each other for motivation. Bowling is also one of the most social sports around, which means you'll have a better time accompanied by good friends. That, in turn, will make you want to bowl more -- and burn more calories.
Pick up the pace
There's no rule that says bowling has to be done at a leisurely pace. If you want to push the calorie-burning envelope a bit, bowl faster -- and keep time spent sitting to a minimum.
Feel like burning some calories at the lane tonight? That's great! Head over to Bowl-A-Roll Lanes at 1560 Jefferson Road or give us a jingle at 585-427-7250.

Monday, November 2 2015, 04:43 PM EST Henrietta, N.Y. - There was a lot of pink at the Bowl-A-Roll Lanes on Saturday afternoon. People showed up to support the youth auxilary Rhoer Club - all in pink. Dozens of young people wore pink shirts and costumes for their shot at winning a prize. The idea behind the event: raising money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. "It's important that we show them now that being involved in their community and having an impact is going to do great things for the future," said Jessica Lewis, the President of Theta Omega Sigma chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. "If we train them now as young people, hopefully as adults they'll stick with it."

PBA Legends Visit Bowl-A-Roll Lanes

Mark Roth and Johnny Petraglia Jr.




Roth, originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., attacked the Tour with a cranking, hard-throwing style which created a generation of imitators now prevalent throughout the sport. Never one to rest on his laurels, Roth not only surpassed the great Earl Anthony's all-time PBA earnings record on the 1987 Fall Tour, but also added his 33rd PBA title in the Greater Buffalo Open and won the No. 1 PBA invitational in Toronto. Roth won PBA Player of the Year honors in 1977, 1978, 1979 and 1984. He led the Tour in average in six different seasons, including a then-record 221.699 in '79. Another of his records is the eight titles he won in 1978, which he followed with seven titles in 1979. Is one of three players to earn both PBA and PBA50 Player of the Year honors. Finished his career with 34 Tour titles and $1,619,136 in earnings. He also owns two PBA50 Tour titles. 




Petraglia, a Brooklyn, N.Y., native, claimed his first PBA championship in the 1966 Ft. Smith (Ark.) Open. The lean lefthander had his career interrupted for a couple seasons when the Armed Forces called and sent him touring Vietnam instead of the pro bowlers circuit. He came back to fulfill his early promise and meet and surpass all of the goals and aspirations he had for himself. One of the highlights of his career was in 1971 when he finished the winter segment with three consecutive titles, all earned from the top-seeded position, climaxed by the Firestone Tournament of Champions triumph. Petraglia concluded that year with five titles and more than $85,000, a record earnings figure for the time. Petraglia won the 1977 BPAA U.S. Won the 1980 PBA National Championship for his 14th title and one that completed the cycle of major tournament victories. He was a long-time member of the Tournament Committee, he served as President of the PBA in 1979-80. He has been involved in untold amounts of charitable functions and efforts. Petraglia was the 25th person to be bestowed with the prestigious PBA Hall of Fame ring. In 2012, became the first player in PBA history to win a PBA Tour or PBA50 Tour in six different decades by capturing his eighth career PBA50 Tour title in the Dayton event. 

Two of the greatest bowlers of our era stopped by Bowl-A-Roll Lanes as part of Brunswick's Radical workshop and ball demo.

Team Building



Looking for the perfect team-building event? Well, skydiving is definitely out. You need something that everybody can do. Which pretty much eliminates golf. There’s rock climbing. But your acrophobics will definitely call in sick. And there’s paint ball. Ouch. Shooting your co-workers may be sending the wrong signal, don’t you think?

Which leaves bowling.

It’s nearby, affordable and everybody from the dudes in the mail room to the dames in C-suite know how to throw a bowling ball. Best of all, it’s actually a heck of a lot of fun.

Here are a few tips to maximize your team-building bowling outing:
 
  1. 1. Team people carefully. Put together teams based on your team-building agenda. Need departments interacting better? Then put them on the same bowling team. That sort of thing.
     
  2. 2. Put inexperienced players together with experienced ones. This is part of team building. The stronger bowlers will encourage the weaker ones. The quick learners will help the slow learners.
     
  3. 3. Select your bowling center wisely. Pick a bowling center near your office. Or, if you are bringing people together from around the country, choose somewhere near their hotel.
     
  4. 4. Hand out awards. This is Team building 101. Sure! However, when bowling is the team-building activity, the trophies look super cool. Give out an award for the best score. The most improved. You get the idea.

There’s no better way to build your team than an afternoon at Bowl-A-Roll Lanes.  And go bowling.

I'm Back

oct-bowling-how-to-purchased.jpg

Maybe’s it’s been a while since you bowled. Maybe you stopped bowling back in the day because you felt outmatched. Maybe it’s time to make your comeback. Well, here are 10 tips to get you back in the game:
 

  1. Master the basics
  2. See if you roll better with a light ball or a heavy one.
  3. Mix it up. Experiment with how you roll.
  4. Adapt. Each lane has its own idiosyncrasies.
  5. Mentally rehearse.
  6. Stay in the zone. No distractions.
  7. Stoke your desire. Winning is one part skill. Two parts wanting it.
  8. Failure is the first step to success. Don’t forget that.
  9. Love the game. You never get good at something you hate.
  10. Channel the adrenaline. Relax. Roll. Celebrate the victories.

When your ready to practice your game, Bowl-A-Roll Lanes is where the action is.  For more information, please contact us at 585-427-7250 or email us at bowlarol@rochester.rr.com.

BOWLING IS GOOD EXERCISE FOR SENIORS

BOWLING IS GOOD EXERCISE FOR SENIORS

 
 
Bowling offers many health benefits for both the young and old alike. Bowling is an especially good form of exercise for seniors. Depending on your weight, and bowling style, you may burn up to 250 calories per hour bowling. Bowling a 3-game series involves walking over half a mile while swinging an 8-16-pound weight. This exercise increases the bowler's endurance, speeds up the bowler's metabolism, and helps the bowler maintain bone density.
Bowling is a "whole body" exercise. The legs take the bowler from the back of the approach to the foul line, where the knee and thigh muscles absorb the energy as the bowler slides to a stop. At that time, the bowler's core muscles turn and flex as the shoulder swings close. That's when the arm and hand do their job by releasing the ball in a lift and turn fashion, and following through to a stretched finish. A lot of bowlers probably don't realize how much exercise they are getting each shot and that so much exercise could be so enjoyable!
Bowlers of all ages should warm up properly before taking to the lanes. Bowling is one of the safest athletic activities there is -- if done properly! If you find yourself overly tired, or sore, after bowling, it might be a good idea to see a certified coach to help you with your form.
Bowlers of all ages enjoy the social aspect of bowling. They even have card games leading into the actual bowling on some of the days. The seniors seem to really enjoy the camaraderie that recreational and competitive bowling provide. Several of the seniors bowl the recreational Senior days plus other sanctioned leagues throughout the week at both Bowl-A-Roll Lanes.  Please contact us at 585-427-7250 or visit our website at www.bowl-a-roll.com.

Bowling - A Healthy Activity at Bowl-A-Roll Lanes

Health Benefits of Bowling

  • One of the things most bowlers do, and is highly recommend, is to warm up and stretch before bowling. Just like any stretching exercise, this is great for the body. Even doing this exercise once a week is a great health benefit to you. This works joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles.
  • Bowling helps promote excellent muscle exercises . Just walking around in the bowling alley, and along the lane in the process of trying to get yourself a strike or spare, you will be doing enough exercise for the muscles in your legs to get a small workout. This exercise is something like the walking exercise which a lot of people perform and the only difference between the two is that in the case of a bowler's a little extra weight is involved. This is because while bowling, your hands are holding the bowling ball whereas while doing the walking exercise you are carrying nothing. Further, when you are swinging your arm to throw the bowling ball, the stretching and flexing that occurs provides enough exercise for the tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints in your arms.
  • Health Bowling
    Bowling can burn off calories quickly while having fun!
  • Bowling helps burn fat. As you flex your muscles with every twisting, swinging and turning motion that you perform while you are bowling you can actually find yourself burning a little bit of the excess body fat you have accumulated over the years. Depending on how much you weigh and how much effort you use, a game of bowling can burn anywhere from 170 to 300 calories.
  • Bowling can help you to make new friends. One of the best health benefits that bowling offers is that you get to develop a lot of new relationships with other people on the bowling lanes as well as improve relationships with the other members of your family and even your friends. There are quite a few psychologists that recommend building more friendships with different people as this has been shown to improve the performance of your heart muscles and increase your longevity. If you are suffering from emotional stress then you can severely shorten your lifespan and cause harm to your body. Thus, you should build your friendships and enjoy yourself a lot.
Bowling Benefits Health
Aside from helping you stay fit, bowling is a great way to interact with friends and meet new people.
There is of course no other way for a person to have fun and enjoy himself or herself while being able to maintain a healthy life quite like bowling. This is a sport that is not too hard on your muscles but does not let you rest for too long either. Now, just bowling once a month is probably not going to be that much of a health benefit to you. You need to bowl regularly. Joining a bowling league is a great way to make sure you are at least bowling weekly. Getting a few practices in during the week is always a good idea too, and will help you improve your bowling game.
Of course, if while at the alley you drink a pitcher of beer, eat a hot dog and nachos and cheese, you will cancel all this positive benefit out. But done right, a regular bowling regiment can contribute to an overall healthy lifestyle, and be a lot of fun too.
If you are finding yourself really enjoying being in a league, and just bowling competitively with friends, you may be finding yourself wanting to bowl better. The Ultimate Bowling Guide has everything you need to bowl better and win games. We find it the best guide on bowling there is.
Have fun and enjoy the health benefits of bowling.

Bowl-A-Thon to Benefit Rare Children’s Disease




Bowl-A-Thon to Benefit Rare Children’s Disease

Sunday, August 30, 2015 at Bowl-A-Roll Lanes

Rochester, NEW YORK, AUGUST 3, 2015 – Lynn Bement of Rochester, NY will be hosting the “Strike Out A-T” Bowling Party at Bowl-A-Roll Lanes in Rochester. The event will benefit the A-T Children’s Project, an organization dedicated to finding life-improving therapies for ataxia-telangiectasia, a rare, fatal genetic disease that affects children.

There are currently just over 7,000 rare diseases identified affecting 30 million people in the US alone. Although these numbers are staggering, what is of even greater concern is that approximately 75% of those affected are children, making this disease category one of the most deadly and debilitating for children in the United States.

Several years ago, when Lynn Bement learned that her daughter Tori was diagnosed with A-T, she felt devastated and did not know where to turn. Then, she discovered the A-T Children’s Project, learning that not only was there an organization looking for a cure for A-T, but she could join dozens of other families from all over the country in their fundraising efforts. She felt hope. “Knowing that families and researchers are working together to help find a cure for this extremely rare disease makes us feel like we are not alone, and gives us hope for a better future for Tori.” Currently, the A-T Children’s Project is funding two research grants at the University of Rochester in the labs of Margot Mayer-Proschel, PhD and Mark Noble, PhD. Proceeds from this event will help fund projects such as this in the efforts to find a cure for A-T.

The A-T Children’s Project was founded by Brad and Vicki Margus, who have two children with A-T. The project raises awareness and funding for research and clinical trials that will benefit all children with A-T. To date, the project’s research has led to the development of treatments for A-T symptoms, including feeding tubes and immune therapy, as well as gaining a deeper biological understanding of how a mutated A-T gene causes many severe problems.
“When Jarrett and Quinn were diagnosed, Vicki and I quickly realized that research on A-T was limited and really needed to be expanded, not just for our boys but for other families as desperate as we were to help their kids with A-T,” Brad Margus said. “We started the A-T Children’s Project to focus on a simple mission: accelerate research, provide hope, and find a cure.”

While scientists estimate one in 40,000 babies is born with A-T, it is not known exactly how many children out there have A-T because the disease is often misdiagnosed. Dr. Howard Lederman of the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center believes learning more about A-T could lead to advances in other more common diseases as well. “A-T’s shared traits with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and many forms of cancer suggests that better understanding about A-T could reveal more about those diseases as well.”

For Brad and Vicki Margus, nothing less than finding a cure will be a success. “Kids and families are counting on us and we won’t give up until we do.” According to Lynn Bement, “We won’t give up either, and we are so grateful for our friends and family who are fighting with us in a battle for Tori’s life.”
The event will be held at Bowl-A-Roll Lanes from 1:00 – 4:00 PM on Sunday, August 30, 2015. For more information and/or to purchase tickets to the event, visit www.atcp.org/RochesterStrikeOutAT.

About the A-T Children’s Project

The A-T Children’s Project is a nonprofit organization formed to raise funds to support and coordinate first-rate biomedical research projects, scientific conferences and a clinical center aimed at finding a cure or life-improving therapies for ataxia-telangiectasia. To learn more about the A-T Children’s Project, visit www.atcp.org.

About ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T)

A-T is a progressive, degenerative disease that affects a startling variety of body systems. Children with A-T appear normal at birth, but the early signs of the disease usually appear during the second year of life. A-T causes the relentless loss of muscle control, usually making children dependent on wheelchairs by age 10 and making it difficult for them to read, speak and eat. Children with A-T also have a strikingly high risk of cancer. Although considered a rare “orphan” disease, A-T may actually be much more common than we know, since many children with A-T, particularly those who die at a young age, are never properly diagnosed. There currently is no cure for A-T and no way to slow the progression of the disease. Research on A-T may help many more common diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. To learn more about A-T, visit www.atcp.org. For more information please contact 585-943-9805,  or email us at lmbement@rochester.rr.com

Bowling - An Olympic Sport?


Bowling Could Appear at the 2020 Olympic Games





Could bowling become an official Olympic sport?

That possibility just became far more likely, as the sport recently cleared the first necessary hurdle for inclusion. The organizers of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, recently released a shortlist of new sports under consideration for the competition. Bowling made the cut, along with baseball, softball, karate, climbing, roller sports, squash, surfing and wushu -- a Chinese martial art.

Organizers of the Olympics will narrow down this list in September, when they will propose the addition of one or more of these sports to the International Olympic Committee (IOC). A final decision by the IOC won't be delivered until 2016. 

At first glance, bowling would appear to have a strong case for inclusion. It's popular on a global scale, as its position as the world's number one participatory sport attests. Bowling also translates very well to television, which is a strong bonus for organizers, as the revenue generated through TV advertising during the Olympics is enormous. World Bowling officials have also been working to improve the sport's appeal to Olympic organizers, going so far as to experiment with the classic scoring system in an effort to make it less confusing to newcomers.
Competition figures to be tough, however. Baseball and softball have Olympic lineage -- both sports were dropped from the games on the eve of the 2012 Olympics in London. That decision was highly controversial, so baseball and softball will have legions of vocal backers supporting their reinstatement.

Adding new sports to the Olympic roster is a fairly common practice, as organizers like to draw in new fans. Golf and rugby have already been added to the list of Olympic sports for 2016 and 2020, for example.
The organizers for the Tokyo Games haven't tipped their hand as to which way they're leaning, saying only that they're seeking sports that reinforce Olympic values and possess youth appeal.
It's impossible to predict the outcome, but that description sounds just like bowling to us!

Team Building Goes Bowling











Team building is one of the most neglected areas of management development in corporate America. Why? The challenges of finding the right venue. It is easy enough to rent a room in a hotel and have an ideation session. It is also simple to book a retreat center for a weekend of planning meetings. What’s hard is designing a team-building getaway that every member of your team can participate in. Not everyone plays golf. Not everyone has a strong tennis game. That, of course, is the beauty of bowling. Everybody from the junior executive to the C-suite has probably spent some time in a bowling center. Best of all, you don’t have to be good to have a great time. Even a gutter ball or two doesn’t get in the way of a good time.  Here are 4 tips to remember when planning a bowling team-building outing:
 

  1. Bowling is a team sport.  Bowling is a game that can be played as an individual or as a team. Emphasizing the power of team dynamics can be easily illustrated. People work together, they start giving tips and encouragement to the weaker players. This is corporate America in a microcosm.
     
  2. Build the teams purposefully.  For the best results, choose your teams carefully. Don’t simply divide the alphabet or make it a battle of the sexes. Assign people with the goal of getting people and departments working together. Make sure that you don’t put all the stronger bowlers on the same team.
     
  3. Choose your bowling center carefully. Make sure the bowling center is conveniently located to your office or hotel. Be sure that it has the facilities you need such as food service, break out room, etc. Many centers offer staff people who specialize in event coordination. These event planners will be sure you have everything you need.
     
  4. Reinforce team building with an awards presentation. Decide what awards to hand out at the conclusion of the event. Identical prizes should be given to all team members of the team with the highest score and of the second and third place teams. You may want to award a few individual prizes for highest score in each game. Humorous awards “worst bowler on the planet” can always be good for the non-bowlers on the teams.

Team building is essential in creating highly functioning business units. And there is no easier way to organize a team-building event than introducing bowling.

Bowling is the Perfect Summer Sport







Bowling is climate-controlled fun.

If you've ever golfed, jogged, or pitched horseshoes on a sweltering and sticky day, you know that miserable weather conditions greatly diminish your enjoyment of favorite summertime activities. In fact, dealing with oppressive heat is often dangerous, especially if you don't stay properly hydrated. Bowlers don't worry about any of this. Bowling centers offer climate-controlled entertainment all year long, granting players a cool respite from searing hot seasonal temperatures.

Bowling keeps school-aged kids engaged during vacation.

Every child looks forward to summer vacation, but they need something constructive to do with all that time off. Bowling makes a great choice. It helps kids stay active, it teaches them about cooperation and competition, and it helps build self-confidence through athletic achievement. Bowling during the summer also serves another purpose: it allows kids to stay in touch with friends during the school break, making sure the social bonds between them stay strong.

Pools are expensive. Bowling is not.

Pools are a popular summer diversion, but they have significant drawbacks. Building your own pool is expensive and most residential pools require near-constant maintenance. Public pools are a lesser commitment, but are often overcrowded and overpriced. Bowling is inexpensive summertime fun  and you won't need a towel or an extra change of clothes.
Summertime activities are all about fun with family and friends -- and bowling is the perfect sport for this time of year.

The Perfect Bowling Birthday Party








Birthdays only come around once per year, so it's important to make sure your celebrations are memorable.
That means you need to go beyond ordinary fun and games and reach for something that will really wow everyone.
Luckily, we have just the thing -- a birthday bowling party.
Let's check out a few reasons why bowling is a huge hit with party goers.

Bowling is a festive sport
If you're looking for a athletic endeavor that promotes laughter and good times, you can't beat bowling. It's tailor made for social settings and it works great as a team sport. Best of all, you don't have to be an expert -- even the most unskilled beginner can have a great time bowling.

Bowling centers make great party locations
If you host a birthday party at home, you have to deal with time-consuming preparations and the irritation of post-party clean up. Bowling centers take all the stress and worry of hosting right out of your hands. Many centers can assist you with party planning, and most sell a variety of delicious food and beverages.

Bowling is a great value
If you're looking for a cost-effective yet still exciting party option, bowling should be right up your alley. Unlike most other sports, all the necessary equipment is provided by the bowling center. Don't forget -- the more money you save on the party, the more you'll have to buy an unforgettable gift.

Speaking of gifts…

Why not visit the bowling center Pro Shop to pick out a great gift to go with the great party? If your bowling center has an on-site store, you may be able to pick up some great bowling accessories or even a custom ball.

Bowling is active
While there's nothing wrong with video games or movies, they don't provide the physical activity that bowling does. That extra exertion will come in mighty handy when you're calculating those birthday cake calories.
The next time you've got a birthday party to plan, visit www.GoBowling.com to find the lane nearest you -- and find out why bowling makes the perfect party activity.

Here are a few reasons why bowling should by your summer exercise of choice.
Bowling burns calories
If you're looking for an activity that burns calories but isn't too high intensity, you can't beat bowling. It's vigorous enough to help you get in shape, but it doesn't require an extreme amount of exertion. That means it's a great option for almost everyone, no matter your age or fitness level.
Bowling takes you out of the heat
In most places, summer can get pretty hot. Yet the inside of your local bowling center is always cool and inviting. So why exercise in the sweltering heat? Burn those calories in comfort by spending a few warm summer afternoons on the lanes.
Bowling is a great way to spend time with friends
Exercise is great for you -- but working out alone is never quite as much fun. That's why bowling is such a great fit. You can enjoy a great day out with your friends or family and get the benefit of some moderate exercise. What's not to love about that?
Bowling makes you happy
Studies have shown that moderate exercise isn't just good for your health -- it also can boost your mood. So why not get the best of both worlds by having some summertime fun at your local lanes?
If you're ready to have the summer of your life and get fit while you're at it, visit GoBowling.com to find a bowling center nearest you.

Make Bowling Your New Summer Tradition





There are a lot of great traditions associated with summer -- long, lazy days at the beach, picnics in the park, fireworks and barbeque just to name a few. Yet there's always room for another addition to your roster of summertime entertainment.
And when you're ready to have some serious fun, there's no better choice than bowling.
Let's talk about a few of the reasons why bowling should rank first on your list of exciting new summer traditions.
It's a great family bonding experience
No matter your age or ability level, you can still have a great time on the lanes. That's one of the reasons why bowling is such a family-friendly sport. Parents, children and grandparents can all enjoy each others' company while engaging in some friendly competition. Best of all, while bowling is good exercise, it's nottoo strenuous. That means almost anyone in the family can join the fun.
It's a great party location
Summer is a great time for parties. So why not host your next get together at your local bowling center? No matter how hot it is outside, you will always be cool as a cucumber inside the lanes. Throw in all the great food and beverage options at the snack bar, and you've got a prescription to permanently cure the summertime blues.
It keeps you happy and healthy
Summer is a great time to exercise and keep in shape. It's also a fantastic time to enjoy the company of your friends. So why not get the best of both worlds by enjoying some exercise at the bowling center? We guarantee you this much -- two hours of bowling with buddies is a much more exciting way to burn calories than a long solo workout on the treadmill.
Are you ready to make bowling your new summer tradition? Great! Please visit GoBowling.com to find the lane nearest you.
Your new summer tradition is waiting.

4th Of July








And while celebration is certainly in order, it is also important to remember that the road to independence has not been an easy one. It did not just magically happen with the signing of a document.

We must remember and honor the sacrifices for our freedom that were made in those early days and the many times since.

July 4 also is a good occasion to remember those in uniform who represent us in the world.

As has been the case for a decade, we are mired in foreign conflict and our troops and their families have been placed in harm's way. We owe a debt of gratitude to service members for their willingness to sacrifice so that we can freely celebrate our nation's birth. We can think of no better day to express that gratitude. Happy Fourth of July.

"Say No To Drugs"




Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling
Public, private, and parochial schools throughout the Greater Rochester area have teamed up with Bowl-A-Roll Lanes to offer area children a safe and fun environment during the summer vacation when they are more likely to be at risk. The "Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling" program provides children ONE FREE GAME OF BOWLING (including rental shoes) EVERY DAY during the summer (May through August). Students need only to present their student ID card. 


Here’s how it works...It’s very simple. We will give each student a “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” card. The card entitles your child to ONE FREE GAME OF BOWLING (including rental shoes) EVERY DAY during the summer (May 15th -through August). That’s it. There is nothing to buy and very few restrictions. Cards are good seven days a week whenever lanes are available until 9:00 p.m. Students need only to present their card when they come to the bowling center and they may bowl ONE GAME FREE.  Any additional games will be charged at the special “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” rate ($1.50).

The first time the student uses their card, we will register them for our free Birthday Club and “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” Club. “Club” members will be eligible for prize drawings and will be invited to participate in many exciting group events and activities.
Say No to Drugs...In addition to the free bowling feature of the program, we will also periodically host special Law Enforcement safety awareness presentations.   Club members will be informed of any scheduled events of this nature.

Bowling — a lifetime sport...
Bowling is the perfect sport. Everyone can play it and no one sits the bench. Size and strength are not a factor. We have bumper bowling for children as young as two years and facilities for disabled bowlers. Bowling is a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. We will also be offering free bowling instruction to our kids.

Bowling — a wonderful group activity...Bowling is a great group activity. We encourage students and youth leaders to participate in the “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Bowling” program as a group function. We will be happy to reserve lanes for your group or organization’s party or fundraiser.
If by chance your school has decided not to participate in our Drug Awareness program, students in grades K-12 can still participate by registering at the bowling center.

We look forward to seeing you next summer...The Bowl-A-Roll Lanes Staff is eagerly awaiting your first visit. Please take a moment to introduce yourself when you get here. We pride ourselves on our exceptional customer service and attention to customer satisfaction. We’ll see you soon.  For more information please contact us at 427-7250, bowlarol@rochester.rr.com or visit our website at www.bowl-a-roll.com.
