FORT RUCKER, Ala. -- Another dining option during the lunch hours opened up to the Fort Rucker community when the snack bar in Rucker Lanes began offering takeout May 26.The move is a step forward towards reopening the bowling facility fully, according to Ron Cook, acting business operations officer and business manager at Rucker Lanes.Takeout orders are taken at the snack bar Mondays-Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. While bowling is still not available, plans are in place to hopefully offer league bowling starting June 1 by reservation only Mondays-Fridays from 5:30-9 p.m., Cook said, adding that the bingo operation will remain closed for the time being.“During our down-time, the Rucker Lanes staff has detail cleaned the snack bar, main concourse and bowlers’ areas, as well as all of the house bowling balls, pins and bowling shoes,” he said. “Every single piece of furniture in the facility was cleaned and removed from the concourse as part of this effort.That operation to get reopened included the staff detail cleaning detail more than 140 bowling balls, 260 pairs of shoes and 400 bowling pins, individually, he added.And the hard work has paid off, Cook said, adding that he is proud of the entire Rucker Lanes staff.“They have gone above and beyond – even taking a toothbrush to the rental shoes – in their deep cleaning efforts. Each and every one of our team members wants to see the center open and available for our community, but they want to make sure we can do so safely,” he said. “We can't wait to see everyone again back at the center!”For more on what the center offers, including a menu, visit or call 255-9503.
