national bowling day 2015
This Saturday, August 8th, is National Bowling Day. AMF bowling centers (Shrader, Sunset, or Hanover Lanes) are offering a free game of bowling for all guests between 10am and Noon (shoe rental extra I think), and Uptown Alley has a free game of bowling with shoes between the hours of 9am and 11am.

Remember, free kids summer bowling program is still going on!

amf summer games

AMF’s free bowling for kids is back this summer; AMF Summer Games runs May 18 through September 7, and is valid Monday through Friday (open to 8pm) and Saturday and Sunday (open to 4pm). The free passes are for kids 15 and under, good for 3 games of bowling each day. Register online at bowlsummergames.com.

A Family Pass is also available for purchase for $39.95, and entitles 4 people (age 16 and older) access to 3 games of bowling each day.

Here’s the fine print about shoe rentals:
“Shoe rental is included with each purchase of a Kids Pass or Adult Pass. If your center is participating in the program that offers free kids’ passes and paid family passes, then shoes are not included.”

Huh? I interpret it to mean, as usual, you’re on your own for shoe rental.

    Participating Richmond AMF lanes:
    Shrader Lanes
    8037 Shrader Road

    Sunset Lanes
    6540 West Broad Street

    Hanover Lanes
    7317 Bell Creek Road
    Mechanicsville
