Update as of 4/2/2020

Hello Cowtown Bowling Palace patrons:

We sincerely hope this update finds everyone being safe and staying healthy.

First, we are alive and well and still in business even though we boarded up our front doors (just trying to protect our facility). I would also like to highlight that we are keeping a close eye on what is happening and when we might be able to re-open. We have had a lot of calls and emails asking when that will be. Like everyone else, we can't say right now but I promise you that we can't wait to get started as soon as possible. We will be sending out another update in late April or the first week of May.

Like most every small business and many of the large ones here in the United States, this is a challenging time for Cowtown Bowling Palace. With that said, I can tell you that our owners are doing everything possible to have your favorite entertainment venue ready to re-open as soon as possible. Unlike many businesses in the metroplex, they have continued to pay most of our dedicated employees so that we can come out of this pandemic even better than before. Staff has worked literally non-stop to bring you the best Cowtown Bowling Palace possible when we re-open. That's right, staff has worked in shifts 24/7 cleaning, organizing and fixing since the minute we closed. And, we are not stopping any time soon.

Here is a list I sent the owners with many of the projects we have completed since closing our doors to the public:

Dear Cowtown Bowling Palace Email Members,

After much consideration regarding the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the leadership of Cowtown Bowling Palace has decided to close effective immediately for two weeks as we work together with our community to prevent the spread of the virus. All activities at the center are cancelled through Tuesday, March 31 when we will re-evaluate the circumstances for re-opening at that time. We will post our status online on our website, cowtownbowling.com and on our Facebook page with updates and information as they become available. We will also continue to send updates via email to all Cowtown Bowling Palace E-mail members.

We will be using the time we are closed to clean every inch of the bowl, touch up the paint, work on our pinsetters and all the other projects that are hard to do when we are filled with guests.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience and hope to see everyone back here at the center in the not too distant future. It is our sincere wish that each and every one of you remains safe!
