***Due to the financial performance over the last 12 months, NAS Freedom Lanes Bowling Center is operating at a net profit loss. Part of the operating expenses include paying utilities at a cost of $70,000 per year. Effective October 1, 2019, 8 of the 24 bowling lanes will be closed resulting in 16 lanes for play. By decreasing from 24 to 16 lanes, the $70,000 utility expense will be eliminated therefore turning the program from a Category C program into a Category B program. Category C programs are responsible for paying the utility expense. Funding from Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) and Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE) will be used to renovate the facility. Renovations will include upgrading furniture, new ball returns, relocation of the main counter, new flooring throughout the facility and the latest updates to the QAMF BESX Scoring system. These changes will provide enhancements never seen in Navy Bowling centers.***
