  1. Hi Jen.   hope your summer is going well.  You may already have profiled this, but you might want to check out Brunswick Bowl (not sure what the actual website address is).  They have a free student bowling deal for kids under 18.  You just download the coupons, print them off, and voila!  You do have to pay for shoe rental, but that’s only 2$, so not bad.   See you at Mom and Kids camp…   Heidi
