As fate would have it, Iola would lose its only bowling alley on National Bowling Day. Country Lanes officially closed its doors on Saturday, giving patrons one last chance to bowl a game or purchase some memorabilia.

Bowling pins were going 10 for $30, while bowling balls were going for $5 apiece.

Everything was for sale, but nobody could snag the memories that several of the regulars shared on this afternoon.
