As some of you know, our neighbor, JB Hunt, has wanted to purchase our property for a number of years.  They have never met our price, until now.  Selling our property was a unanimous decision among the five of us.
Was it a difficult decision? Yes and No.  Difficult for the fact that we have been in this business for almost 37 years.  Our bowling leagues are family.  Some of you have been with us from day one.  It's hard to break up this family,
but with this decision, it gives us more time to devote to our families. 

Going forward, my wife Robin and myself can now enter into retirement doing what we want, even if it's nothing more than our usual long day trips, farmer market runs, bicycling or just hanging out. 
Mark, Beth, and their families can have an easier life, and eventually an enjoyable retirement.

Our last day of OPEN bowling will be Wed March 8th, we have private groups the 9, 10, 11.  We are going to do all we can to assure everyone a smooth transition.  Word in this community travels fast.  We DO NOT want rumors, or I guess now a days it's called "fake news". 
We are simultaneously posting this on all of our verified social media accounts and website.

Thank you all for 37 years,
Don & Robin, Beth, Mark & Kristi
