Sorry to say another bowling center has closed down here in Michigan. Westland Lanes, in Westland MI. has closed. The center had 60 lanes. the place was in need of some updates like new carpet and etc. It just needed to be freshened up.

Superbowl, Town and Country,Vision Lanes, I think Plaza in Plymouth too,also Oak Lanes.  

Very sad to see Westland Bowl Close. it was a part of the Blue Ribbon Bowling group for many years. but as things changed less and less people are bowling.

Wayne Bowl is in the WWCUSBC association. They have Monday and Friday Mixed Leagues in the fall with large prize funds as well as a new Senior Men's Trio league (50 and over) on Sunday afternoons with a $10,000.00 first place prize based on 40 teams or $5,000.00 based on 20 teams. http://www.Facebook.com/waynebowl   http://www.wayne-bowl.com   I have bowled there the last few years and love the place. Don't let the outside of the building fool ya

Good God, not another one!  They seem to be dropping like dead flies?  And right here in the State of MI!  Rumor has it that there are a few more alleys on this side of the State that are hurting & considering closure?  Will have to wait & see what happens this Fall?  I hope they make it, we lost enough alleys around here already!

Doesn't seem logical to have them in a different assn.  They could be in MDUSBC with no additional staff required.  Could save money.  Probably politics or they would have been put there originally when the USBC was formed.

just a little FYI about Westland  Bowl! they used to only have 40 lanes and they added 20 lanes. also i think this was more or less a family issue. from what i recall 2 older people owned the place... i would'nt doubt it if Red Holman Gmc purchases the lot and puts another autoline in there. similar to the Oxford deal in Dearborn last year.  as the song says Rumor has it.

Sad to say often the land the property rests upon is worth more than the outstanding debt of some of these older centers.  Its getting expensive to bowl these days.

I was looking at the pic and what came to mind was.......clear blue skies in Michigan?  I guess if it's cloudy 320 days a year, that still leaves a few that are sunny!


Bummer about the closing......
