Prairie Imperial Bowl in Craigmont held an open house Saturday to show off the upgraded lanes and pinsetters. The dark panels shown in the top photo are where those who sponsored a machine will have their names. PIB hopes to schedule another open house in August. Leagues will be starting up in September. Machine installer Russ Hunt said with the new oiler shown in the lower photo and the synthetic overlays that most bowlers should see a 15% improvement in their averages. Click on the photos for larger views.

The new Brunswick pinsetters at Prairie Imperial Bowl feature a more mechanically driven setup as opposed to the hundreds of wires used in the AMF machines. Unlike the AMF machines the distributor belt doesn’t move, the basket with the pins in the upper photo rotates and then once it’s full, drops them into the sleeves, lower photo, that spots the pins on the deck. There should be way fewer pin jams. Click on the photos for larger views.
