Owners of Travel Lanes to celebrate anniversary

The owners of Travel Lanes bowling alley in LeRoy will cross a line the weekend of May 17-19, but they won’t be marking this one a zero.

Jim and Brenda Gronwoldt and their son, Brandon, are happy with the way their business has been over the years, and now they’re not going to be spare with the fun. That’s because the Gronwoldt’s have successfully run Travel Lanes for a decade, and on May 19, they’ll celebrate their 10th anniversary.

“The biggest thing is without the support of the local community, we wouldn’t have been here,” Jim said.

When Travel Lanes isn’t celebrating for huge occasions, it offers six lanes for bowling, leagues every weeknight, homemade food, a lounge that seats 65, a dining room for 75 and an event venue in the basement for nearly 300 people.

Next weekend, though, the owners will treat their patrons and guests to a lot more. Travel Lanes will use the whole weekend, May 17-19, to honor its grand occasion.

On Friday, it will have a two-hour magic show featuring the Magic of Cody, from La Crosse, Wis. An all-you-can-eat pizza party will begin at 6 p.m. with the show starting at 7:30. Tickets are $10 each or $40 maximum per family.

On Saturday, Luke N Bob Texas will blast their country tunes during an outdoor concert from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.

On Sunday, Travel Lanes will cap it off with a prime rib dinner from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and a 7 p.m. comedy show featuring comedians Art Roseman and headliner Rich Aronovitch.

“We saw him when we were out in Reno bowling, so we’re flying him in to do a show for us,” Jim said.

Tickets are $25 and are limited. Call 507-324-5211 for more information. Travel Lanes is located on Main Street in LeRoy.
