Marty Fichera, a member of the New York State Bowling Hall of Fame since 2002, polishes orbs inside Legends Pro Shop at Flamingo Bowl. Just outside the shop, a kaleidoscopic mural stretches above 40 gleaming lanes. As live DJs soundtrack cosmic bowling on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, old hands such as Fichera gaze at the swiveling lights and think back to the '70s, when all sports were cosmic. The Jungle Lounge bar dispenses Budweiser drafts as teams wait for league matches to begin. Flamingo Bowl also hosts birthday parties, presenting a keepsake bowling pin to the hosts if 10 or more guests attend.
For 23 years Camillus Kayak has outfitted area aquaphiles with premium, quality equipment for fun, energetic maritime outings. The well-stocked boatique is stuffed to the gills with brand-name recreational kayaks (13'–14' long) and stand-up paddleboards available for daily ($50) or weekly ($200) rental. Larger premium kayaks (a minimum 16' long; $65/day, $275/week) increase wave slicing speed and the odds of winning back the farm in upstream drag races. Paddlers and sentient driftwood looking for a change of pace can navigate the waters atop a stand-up paddleboard, which combines the exhilarating adventure and exercise of boating with the familiarity of standing. From the higher vantage of a buoyant stand-up board, waterwalkers can witness submerged mysteries that are often hidden to the boatbound eye, such as lakebed land grabs or the ascension of angelfish. Rentals include vessels, paddles, a whistle, life vest, and temporary car-top carrier to ensure a safe and convenient trip.
