Our family loves bowling.
That should come as a surprise to absolutely no one given how often the boys and I are at the bowling alley. Sean has been working at Richmond’s Lucky 9 Lanes (formerly The Zone) for the past 6 months, so he’s there two or three times a week.
Then there’s Jacob – the 3-time provincial medalist (he has two silver medals and one bronze medal as he chases that elusive gold). He fell in love with bowling as soon as he tried it.
And of course there’s me. I love playing, although my form and technique leave a lot to be desired; I’m just trying to regularly out-bowl my weight.
Bowling is certainly in our genes. My mom’s side of the family in particular is full of strong bowlers. And Gail claims that there’s a decent bowler or two on her side too.
And now you have a chance to bowl this summer. A LOT.
Once again, Lucky 9 Lanes is offering the “Kids Bowl Free” promotion until August 31. Kids 15 years old and under can play 2 free games per day (Monday to Friday from 11am – 7pm) all summer long. It’s an outstanding deal and it can obviously save you a lot of money.
Shoe rental is not included but it’s cheap. Or you might consider buying a pair of bowling shoes if you think you’re going to play a lot. I have a pair of stylish white bowling shoes of my own. And they’re velcro.
Adults can play too by purchasing a family pass for $25 USD. With this pass, up to 4 adults can also get the 2 free games anytime they go with the kids. And the $25 USD is a flat fee….regardless of whether or not it’s 1 person or 4 people. Thus, it’s certainly a great deal as well.
Side note: I was able to save an extra 25% off the family pass by clicking on “No Thanks” the first time the sign-up screen appeared. Then, they gave me a coupon code of “hot25” to use…and I saved 25%. You can’t enter the code the first time however…you have to “pretend” that you’re not interested haha.
You can print out hard copies of the coupons (emailed to you weekly) or better yet, access the coupons off of your cell phone.
Check out all the pertinent details on the website…you can start bowling right away!
You’ll probably end up running into us there.
