New News:

Happy Holidays to everyone!


What a week for high scores this week!

After 15 years of bowling, Mike Cullip shot his 1st 300 game in the Slade and Sovocool League ending the night following 211-221 games for a 732 series! Way to go Mike!


It didnt take Tom Burk Jr long to figure out a new ball, and the oil pattern on the Bill Van Patten League. Tom started out with a respectable 245 before he pushed the pedal to the floor and finished with 299-278 for the years high series at 281 Bowl - 822! Nice job Tom!


Keep an eye out for Pictures! We will begin showing the history of 281 Bowl in Pictures!

(if you have pictures to share, please get them to Scott or Don Hinshaw at the lanes, or send them to hinshdon@outlook.com)

The 1st picture is when Scott Becker was presented with his ring and patch for shooting the 1st 300 game ever at 281 Bowl!

Do you recognize the folks in the rest of the pictures?

281 Bowlers and Cort-Lanes owner working together to represent Cortland bowling in Reno! (notice Brian Fullers signature added for his 873 shot at 281 Bowl that same year!)

Mr. Becker and his 1996 ABC Team!

These guys have been tormenting the lanes on Sundays for a very long time!


Whoa! Take a guess at who these finely dressed Kegglers are!

This is a great one going back to 1980!





Congrats to owner Scott's son NICK BECKER on his 808 series at Cortlanes. Way to go Nick! (feel free to pick on Nick for shooting this in another house!)
