Base MCCS operations under review

He said the bowling alley was a perfect spot for his grandson.

"I was taking my grandson in there twice a week to bowl and to play the video games downstairs in the game room. He’s 4 years old," Menger said. "When there’s no football game, you’ve got all the high school kids that come in. The local camps around here use it in the summer. The Cherry Tree House used it in the summer and we retirees use it, so you’re looking at 4 years old to 70 years old."

Donham said the closure of a skateboard park and paintball range on base leaves few options for families.

"The only thing out at that base that is family oriented right now, where everybody can participate, is the bowling alley," she said. " … It’s the only facility on that base that has any form of recreation where all participants can partake, and these young Marines, if they don’t have that place, they’re going to go out in town and you know what happens then. It’s not a pretty sight."
