$100,000 New Bowling Alley Slated Here

Enid will have a new, larger bowling alley and sufficient facilities to attract large bowling tournaments as results of arrangements completed Friday.

Officials of the Munger Development Co. and Trail Lanes Inc. Friday signed papers for a lease agreement of a $100,000 building to be constructed and leased by the Munger firm to Trail Lanes for a 20-lane bowling alley. Garry Munger, president of the firm, said the building would be "in excess" of that figure.

O.G. Tate, president of Trail Lanes said his firm would equip the building with bowling facilities valued at about $100,000. The alley will be named Shamrock Bowl and be located at 2001 North Van Buren, on the corner of West Palm, facing west on Van Buren. It will have off-street parking for more than 100 automobiles.

Munger said the building will be designed by Tom Rogers, architect, and built by the Munger Emmons construction firm. He said plans will probably be completed by the first of the year and construction ended by April or May. The bowling alleys are expected to be opened by June.

In addition to the 20 lanes, fitted with automatic pin spotters, the building will also house a snack bar and similar facilities. Tate's firm presently operates the Trail bowling alley on South Jackson, which has 18 lanes. When the new bowling alley brings the total Enid facilities to 38, officials feel Enid will be able to offer sufficient facilities for large tournaments.

The new bowling alley will be built of the North Van Buren highway, on one of the access roads, on a large plot owned by the development firm. Monger said this will be the first of a large development there. However, he said plans for the rest of it are presently indefinite.

Present for signing of the agreement yesterday were Munger and Frantz Conrad Jr., attorney and secretary-treasurer of the Munger firm; and Tate, C.W. "Hoss" Wheller, vice president; Glen Hamous, secretary, and Frank Carter, attorney for Trail Lanes.

In 2006, the Enid News and Eagle did an article on Oakwood Bowl. After 60 years Jack Tate still is in the bowling alley business.

In 2011, the Enid News and Eagle did another article on Oakwood Bowl. Bowling Bash.

This year a third article was writen by ENE titled: Scholarship program helps road to college for youth bowlers
