At Thunderbird's four modern bowling arenas, families and friends demolish pins arranged at the end of up to 36 slick lanes. Boulder chuckers slip on chic rental sneakers, pirouette, and send the 12-pound sphere trundling past gutters into a smug stand of pins. The option of bumpers aids little ones in nudging smaller orbs down the timber avenue. Thunderbird's lanes are programmed with AMF automatic scoring, freeing hands from cramp-inducing feats of addition.

Open year-round, the course at Juniata Golf Club sprawls over 106 naturally hilly acres and challenges players with tricky lies and imposing hazards that complicate its relatively short length. Frankford Creek winds into play on six holes of the Edmund B. Ault design, ensnaring worm burners in a reedy morass. The par-4 sixth hole exemplifies the difficulty of the course as a whole, measuring just 360 yards in length but forcing shots to climb entirely uphill from tee to shallow green like a marathon-running pack mule. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par-66 course Total length of 5,275 yards from the back tees Course rating of 64.8 from the back tees Course slope of 109 from the back tees Three sets of tees per hole

Forty-eight bowling balls can roll down the 48 lanes at once, sending pins flying in a heath-thumping clatter. Erie Lanes? size accommodates hordes of bowling parties at once. And it isn?t just bowling that entertains crowds. Balls clatter atop pool tables in the game room, and a toy crane snaps at stuffed animals. And on select nights, the bowling lanes glow under black lights and disco balls, and a fog machine turns on full blast during cosmic bowling games. The on-site caf? refuels bowlers with pizzas, nachos, and burgers drowning in bleu cheese and bacon bits.

CrossFit Renaissance strives to make renaissance men and women out of its clients, prepping physiques for a broad range of real-life challenges with each day's workout. Coaches Bill Shiffler , Reese Knox, and Ray Decarlo follow the CrossFit credo: intense and highly varied routines that can slide on a scale of difficulty to suit any fitness level and focus on functional movements. However, they differentiate themselves by guiding small groups, limiting attendance so that every student receives personalized guidance. To accumulate evidence for the program's muscle-toning effects, gym members record their daily stats in a training log and conduct regular interviews with their biceps.
