Mohegan Bowl opens
The newly renovated Mohegan Bowl opened last weekend for league and public bowling. “We had an excellent turnout for the first day on Saturday,” said Owner Ed Kinsley. “Roughly 100 people showed up to check things out over the course of the day and the public response was gratifying. Everyone seemed very happy with all the renovations and patient with the ongoing construction.” The “alley” has 20 lanes of candlepin bowling with automatic scoring and automatic bumpers for kids, and there's cosmic bowling for the whole family on Friday and Saturday nights. Work continues on renovating the restaurant, to be named All Star Pub. The Mohegan Bowl is at 51 Thompson Road, Webster.
