Bowlers who participate in leagues got a little good news Tuesday. Leagues can use two lanes with appropriate barriers. Bowlers including league players were complaining about having every other lane closed making bowlers unable to alternate lanes and creating a backup on play times. Governor Cuomo’s office says that leagues can play as normal as long as the lanes are separated with appropriate barriers. Bowling alleys are rushing to buy and set up plastic sheeting, shower curtains and other makeshift barriers.
