This week's Maine Switch features a story about candlepin bowling in the Greater Portland area. Unfortunately, the only mention of Westbrook's Colonial Bowling Center is in the form of a complaint: The writer, Amy Martin, showed up at 4p on a day public bowling was off-limits after 3p.
Moreover, Martin erroneously claims West-Port Bowling is a candlepin alley (there seems to be a disconnect in editing, because not even the list of bowling alleys in Greater Portland accompanying her article lists West-Port as a candlepin alley) and is further ticked off by West-Port's cash-only, sorry-the-closest-ATM-is-at-Kohl's policy.
Ever the cheerleader of Westbrook (not to mention healthy self-promoter), I recommend you read this dispatch from Colonial Bowling Center. As for Martin, a game of candlepin at Colonial is on me.
Good thing she'll probably never know.
