President Elect Barack Obama Bowling Lane Goes Up for Auction
Date:11/12/2008

Altoona based bowling center offers chance to own a piece of history to

help the Special Olympics

ALTOONA, Pa., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- "My economic plan is better than my bowling," President Elect Barack Obama told fellow bowlers on a Saturday evening at the Pleasant Valley Recreation Center. This statement came after Obama bowled a gutter ball that would make him one of the most infamous bowlers in recent political history.

On March 29, 2008, Obama spent 2 hours at the bowling center talking with the public as part of a face-to-face "Road to Change" bus tour through Pennsylvania, and bowling -- 7 frames.

Obama bowling on lane #21 of the Pleasant Valley Recreation Center quickly became the most televised portion of his campaign -- his bowling "highlights" appeared on Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, The Today Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central and many others.

Now, co-owners Jean Montgomery and Bob DiVentura are putting Lane 21 up for sale through an online auction on Ebay, beginning November 13 and ending November 23 at 9:00 PM EST. "We are offering this piece of history to the lucky bidder," said Montgomery. "It is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the most talked-about bowling lanes in political history."

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Special Olympics. "We are proud to have donated the use of our bowling center to the Special Olympics for many years," said Montgomery. "This will allow us to contribute additional funds to the organization."

Not only are they offering lane #21, but also the neighboring lane (#22), the gutters, 2 pin setters, computer scoring system, and the bowling circle complete with the chairs sat on by Obama. "We'll even throw in the shoes and bowling ball that Obama used," said DiVentura.

The fully functional lane will be disassembled, shipped, and reassembled at the location of the buyer's choice. "It is a true collector's item that the buyer can be sure no one else can claim a duplicate," said DiVentura.
