LITTLE ROCK AIR FORCE BASE, Ark. -- On a quiet Monday night a ball moves swiftly down the shiny yellow lane, and a noise like 10 champagne bottles popping at once suddenly breaks the silence of the base bowling center.

The Strike Zone Bowling Center now offers free bowling for single active duty members, enlisted and officers, on Monday nights. 


The program is a hit with Airmen.

"I love bowling and a lot of us will be back," said Airman 1st Class Nicholas Chisler, a 19th Maintenance Squadron fuels systems operator. "The program is awesome. I really appreciate the fact that they do not forget about us single airman."

The program is a way to give Airmen something to do on a weeknight and give the bowling center foot traffic.

"We started out with maybe 15-20 people, but now we are having upwards of 40 people showing up every Monday night," said Kelly Kret, a 19th Force Support Squadron recreation assistant. "I love to see people come in and have a good time."

It started with the Single Airmen initiative. The 19th FSS is given funds from higher Air Force levels to disseminate amongst varies recreational organizations throughout the base.

"It's a wonderful program for the Airmen," said Kret. "It's a good way for them to meet people, even if they don't bowl. It's all about fun."

Strike Zone Bowling Center lanes are open Monday-Wednesday from 6-9 p.m. Thursday from 5-10 p.m. Friday from 5-12 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 11 p.m.

The Little Rock Air Force Base Strike Zone Bowling Center offers many bowling specials throughout the week.

Other specials include dollar days, Cosmic Bowling, league bowling, Colorama, Family Fun Day and more.
