This is a place in Ohio....

ZANESVILLE – Zanesville Residents will have to wait a few more days to enjoy activities at Sunrise Bowling Center.

Leslie Bryan is one of the four co-owners who purchased the bowling alley in August. She says that a number of residents have stopped by asking when the bowling lanes or nearby putt putt course are available. The plan is for Sunrise to open this Friday.

“We’ll be re-opening as soon as we get all the guidelines set in place for the employees and the safety of the customers also. We could’ve opened Tuesday but we chose not to until we know that its safe for everyone,” Sunrise Co-Owner Leslie Bryan said.

There’s a limit of two bowlers per lane. That is just one of the steps they are taking to help promote social distancing.

“We will have floor plans labeling where people can be. We have the tables set, not just tables six feet apart but the actual chairs where people will be. We don’t really have the barriers up because I think there’s enough distance between all of the tables to where we have it set up,” Bryan said.

For now, Sunrise Bowling Center, which is located on East Pike, plans to be open from 10 AM to 10 PM seven days a week starting Friday.

This is another place in Nebraska:

GERING, Neb. After being closed for close to two months, Classic Lanes in Gering is set to reopen their doors on June 1st.

The decision to close on March 30th comes from the ten person or less restriction.

Once the bowling alley reopens, staff can have up to 25% capacity or in their case, 75 people at a time.

The bowling area, bar and kitchen will be open.

The arcade games and pool section will be closed.

In the bowling area, there will be para-lanes in between bowlers.

Families can have up to ten at a lane.

There are no age restrictions to bowl.

Staff asks for children not to leave the bowling area and not to run around.

As Classic Lanes becomes the only bowling alley left in the Scottsbluff and Gering area, their closure would mean the end of bowling within these areas.

“I just hope that the community does come out and support us because we are the only bowling alley right now and I would like to keep it open,” explained Nicky Stich, Owner.

Since the closure, there has been no revenue coming into the business.
Employees during this time are being paid from the Paycheck Protection Plan.

Looks like each of these places have 16 lanes.  Will be interesting to see what happens come the fall season.

I've been thinking more about how our league will manage things if there are still gathering limits in place.  It occurred to me that we could switch from a single 3-man squad starting at 7:30 to three 1-man squads starting at 6:30, 7:30, and 8:30.  The teams would still exist and bowl each other, but it would be one bowler from each team at a time on the pair, not everybody at once.  This leaves enough physical space for social distancing in our small center.

Teams that utilize player rotations could still do that, and if things go "back to normal", we could immediately switch back to our normal 3-man schedule.

Whether this is allowable under USBC rules I don't know, but at this point most of us don't care about USBC rules anyway.  [rofl]
