Kegler's Korner: The Landing now offers latest in boutique bowling

TERRE HAUTE — The Landing at Fort Harrison mini-resort opened to the public last week and its eight-lane bowling facility is nestled right in the midst of this ambitious business undertaking.

Bowling had been a staple at the former Elks Country Club since it opened on the historic site of Fort Harrison, located in the northwest corner of Terre Haute overlooking the Wabash River.

If you haven’t been to this bowling facility recently, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the many renovations.

The Landing will offer its customers the latest trend in the bowling industry, boutique bowling. Boutique bowling caters to parties or corporate groups, offering a cutting edge experience in addition to food and beverages.

The Landing’s brochure states a boutique bowling experience having an “edgy ambiance.”

“We’re on the edge of technology, computerization and what not,” stated The Landings’ bowling manager Brian Carapezza on Thursday.

Carapezza is a name familiar to area bowlers, being the former owner of Lucky Strike Bowl in Clinton. He states The Landing’s light show is as good as any in the Wabash Valley.

Coming within the next 30 days, according to Carapezza, is what he calls a virtual jukebox. Any type of music imaginable can be downloaded through the Internet on site for the desired party atmosphere.

The traditional league and open bowler has not been forgotten in this transformation. After all, Carapezza is an active member in the Greater Terre Haute Men’s Association.

The 700 Club will hold its final tournament of the season — Match Games — in late March or early April. Also, an annual Elks charity tournament is slotted for January.

A former long-time Elks men’s league, the ISU Physical Plant League, will return to its “old” lanes on Mondays after the first of the year.

Bowling rates are $3 per game, shoe rental is $2.50 and league play for three games is $8.50. There are numerous private party and party rental rates for either Monday-to-Thursday or Friday-to-Sunday dates.
