About Higgingsville Lanes
**Gift Cards now available. Great for Christmas or Birthdays gifts.**
Bowling has been a part of Higginsville for many years. The current building became a bowling center in 1957. Some of you may remember young boys being pinsetters and keeping score with paper and pencil. Throughout the years and with a handful of different owners, bowling has remained an icon on Main Street Higginsville for over 50 years!
Sold to new owners Keith and Janet Bredehoeft in January 2008, the newly renovated Higginsville Lanes has reignited bowling in the Higginsville area. With the addition of the "LaneSide Grill", a full service pro shop and updates to the bowling area with synthetic lanes and much more, Higginsville Lanes has reestablished itself as a family oriented bowling center.
They currently have nine leagues, with one being a senior league and two devoted to the youth. Open bowling is available on the weekends. Birthday parties, Corporate and private bookings are growing in popularity. tournament participation is also growing in interest. Bowling remains one of the fastest growing sports. It is a sport that you can do at an early age and enjoy for a lifetime. As with any business, the appreciation should go to the staff, Pro shop manager: Jerry Graham, and employees: Harold Griffel, Aimee Travis, Aaron Chapman and Jon Young.
Hope to see you soon. Keith and Janet Bredehoeft, owners

Husker Bowling is here!
The Husker Bowling Club had their first practice meet at Concordia Lanes, Sunday February 23. The format was a 5 member team event, bowling “BAKER” style, with each bowler bowling only 2 frames per game. The huskers bowled 10 games with 1357 pins. “This was our first experience in this type of team play, so it was a learning experience. It was a lot of fun.” Janet Bredehoeft, USBC registered Volunteer. It’s not too late to get involved; the team will travel to centers around the area and have a zone competition again at Concordia bowl, on March 23rd. the winner of that gets to go to state in Union MO in April.
The club was just recently formed and is open to all Laf Co C-1 high school students. The cost is very minimal and will not interfere with other team sports. Higginsville Lanes had donated practice time, coaching and pro shop services for the team. Some equipment has been donated and cash donations are being accepted to help off set the cost of entry fees and team shirts. The team practices every Sat morning at 11am at Higginsville lanes.
