Bawling alley to open To reopen the Bowling Alley tomorrow at 10 a.m., a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held, starting a weekend of special activities which will celebrate the newly redesigned Arctic Lanes. Captain Jack T. Weir, Commander Naval Forces Iceland/Commanding Officer Naval Station, Keflavik, is scheduled to roll the first ball down a new lane after cutting the ribbon. The Bowling Alley, which has been closed since March 28, will operate from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. daily. Bowling will cost 50 cents per game. Ten cents will be charged for shoe ren- tal. New lockers have been installed for patron use. The Bowling Alley will be adding new balls as well as shoes. According to Jon Gudmundsson, direc- tor social division, the renovation cost an estimated $800,000. The Kefla- vik Contractors were in charge of the construction under the Iceland Prime Contractor. Door prizes will include both a ball and a bag. Free bowling passes will be distri- buted, bearing three free games each, to those who attend the ceremony. The Navy Exchange will operate a snack bar at the renovated facility. Tomorrow and Sunday, the snack bar will offer hot dogs and drinks at a reduced price. Red pin bowling will be featured tomorrow and Sunday. Red pin winners may play their free games at a later date. A vending machine concession area will be available for patrons in ad- dition to the snack bar. A highlight of the new facility will include an underground ball re- turn. Each lane has a seating capacity of 11 persons. Spectators have ad- ditional room adjacent to the lanes. The Bowling Alley is fully car- peted in heavily trafficked areas. The ceiling is completely acousti- cally tiled, with flourescent light- ing. League bowling is expected to start in September. Ball-drilling equipment has been installed for customer convenience. Pro bowlers have been invited to give exhibitions at the Bowling Alley. Free bowling instruction will be pro- vided when an instructor becomes availa- ble. The old entrance is secured. The new entrance is between the new Hobby Center and the Viking Building. Both military personnel and Icelandic workers installed the bowling equipment and lanes as well as removed the old equipment. Special guests will include Lieuten- ant Commander C. G. Green, Recreation Department officer, and Valberg Larusson, Special Services director. The new telephone number for the Bowling Alley will be 4282.

He was also chosen from five nominees by the Naval Forces Ice- land selection board. Concerning his selection as Petty Officer of the Quarter, TM1 Ripple said, "I was really happy about my selection.

When asked about his selection as Sailor of the Quarter, he replied, "I consider it quite an honor. I be- lieve that my duty comes first in the Navy." Both honorees will receive a 96-hour liberty.
