The pins perfectly lined up


The mechanical area back of the alleys

The Alumni Center was the newest edifice at UP back in the 70's. The venue has a duckpin bowling alley and billiard tables for the use of fun-seekers like me. I became quite adept at playing duckpins and billiards back then. My best buddy Helen also became a billiard queen much to the consternation of her brother who was also a fixture at the Alumni Center.

A few days ago, I went to the Alumni Center to check the place out. The Alumni Center is not to be confused with the Bahay ng Alumni. The center has a full-pledged restaurant now available for functions and catering.

The alley was a sorry state though. The alley is still manual; meaning the pins and balls are taken care of by a person located at the back of the pin area. The pictures are taken by my son using his cell phone . (His third cell phone this semester. Remember the snitching events at Kalayaan Hall?)

I was kinda hoping to see the same manong of my time manning the pins and balls.
