    Ned Day defeated Glenn Allison in the Finals. That was the first year they went away from the King Of The Hill format & was a single elimination tournament.

    I was an all around employee here from about 1993-1996. Fun place with an
    interesting mix and plenty of characters. Rock, R&B, jazz and more some nights
    on the speakers after league play, and a disco ball for a rock n bowl effect.
    The lounge became the volleybar with sand courts outside and deck for a beach
    feel. It eventually all closed in 2004 I think and became a concert venue for a
    little bit. The place had it’s own energy going back to the 1950’s in an interesting location by a University, Ottawa Park, and a small river. Lots of funny stories and
    people I’m still inspired by at times, and I was just a small part of it’s history.

    My grandfather, Carl Miller, rolled the first perfect game at University Lanes. My family still has the large trophy presented to him.
