Subject: Building a Bowling Lane
In order to help my kids improve in their bowling, I've decided to
build an outdoor bowling lane about 40' feet long. It's only 40' feet
long because I wanted to concentrate on the approach (15 feet) and the
arrows (15) with 10' more feet for cushion.
I was wondering what would be easier and cheaper to do,
1. Concrete 4 feet wide by 40 long with 3/4 ply wood on top as the
2. Use all wood.
The main objective is the approach (foot work), foul line (Slide and
release point), release (out in front),and target (arrows)
paying a $1.75 a game ($7 bucks for 4 games times 2 kids = $14.00)
every other day is starting to add up with great results. My kids
averages have gone up by almost 20 pins. With the State tournament
coming up in July, the more practice the better.
Any input is welcome.
