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



A one-year pass for open play or league play per person is $400, while a family pass is $800 (up to five family members). Bowling passes can be bundled with golf and/or swimming at a reduced rate.

Bowling lane hours are 4 to 10 p.m. weekdays and from noon to 11 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

While President-elect Barack Obama dazzled voters in the lengthy campaign recently completed in early November, his bowling “ability” along the campaign trail was not quite as dazzling. To say the least.

During the primaries, Obama reportedly bowled a lowly 37 over seven frames on Mar. 29 in Altoona, Pa.

Obama jokingly told late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel soon after: “I hear there’s a bowling alley and obviously that hasn’t gone too well. So we’re getting rid of the bowling alley and replacing it with a basketball court in the White House.”

Instead of taking out the lanes, members of the Professional Bowlers Association are willing to perform a Presidential bowling intervention.

“Once the family is settled in, the PBA Tour will be pleased and anxious to send some of our top male and female professional bowlers in to give lessons to the President-elect and first lady on the White House bowling lanes,” said PBA VP/COO Tom Clark.

“I have one bowling tip for Obama: take a lesson from me,” said Billy Oatman, the first African American on the exempt PBA Tour. “Call Billy Oatman and he’ll get a lesson.”

“I saw the clip [Obama bowling] on YouTube and I have some tips for Obama,” added PBA star Norm Duke. “Obama’s been in a suit and tie too long. He needs to get some athletic apparel and a bowling ball that fits his hand. He needs to work on hitting the head pin because he didn’t do that very well [in the YouTube clip].”
