Casual League resumes at Arapahoe Bowling Center

Tonight at 7pm, after taking a week off for Valentines day, week 3 of the casual league resumes at the expanded space inside Arapahoe Bowling Center tonight. 28 games, including the new Jersey Jack Pinball Pirates of the Caribbean. This is super casual, so no WPPR points earned. Just getting together for some fun challenges that change on a weekly basis. If you miss a week, games are easily made up. Dues are $4 a week, with all dues paid out in prizes at the end of the 8-week run.

League runs Thursdays at 7pm, until March 28.
