SIOUX CITY, Iowa - More bad news for local bowlers Tuesday night.
Just one day after longtime bowling establishment 'Plaza Bowl' closed it's door.
"9 investigates" has learned Sioux City's one remaining bowling alley, 'Rush Lanes,' has been put up for sale.
This all comes as Sioux City prepares to host thousands of bowlers for the State Open in two years.
Question is, will there be anywhere for them to bowl?
'Rush Lanes' off of Stadium Drive, has been listed on Century 21's website.
The property is going for $1.8 million, with the newly remodeled restaurant and pub, 'Clyde's,' attached to it.
The listing even suggests to potential buyers, to actually gut the bowling part out and extend the restaurant, potentially leaving Sioux City with no bowling alleys.
"It'll sadden a lot of people in town here especially, you know, if they don't have a place to bowl," said Gonshorowski.
This comes after, 'Plaza Bowl' on Hamilton Boulevard, closed it's doors after almost half a century.
'Plaza Bowl' was initially going to be one of the houses used in the state open tournament coming up in 2019.
It involves men and women bowlers across Iowa.
Last time it was held in Sioux City, they had 936 teams, which was close to 5,000 bowlers.
The local bowling association planned on, 'Plaza Bowl,' housing the singles and doubles-- while the team event was going to be held in le mars.
"As a bowling board, we make our decisions based on the bowlers and you know, we do what we can to help out the proprietors and work with the proprietors, so we just have to wait and see I guess, with all that stuff," said Gonshorowski.
Gonshorowski said even though it's upsetting, there is a trend right now with bowling alleys, closing up shop.
"With the centers being sold, it's not isolated to Sioux City, Council Bluffs lost a couple of bowling alley's last year and Akron is up for sale now, so there's a lot of movement in the bowling industry, but there's also a lot of bowlers in Sioux City," said Gonshorowski.
Gonshorowski, also being the bowling coach at Morningside College, is not concerned because he thinks there is a great interest in bowling throughout Iowa, for people of all ages.
If something does not happen with, 'Plaza Bowl,' the State Open in 2019, could not be held at 'Rush Lanes' because it does not fit the state board criteria.
That means the tournament and its thousands of bowlers, will go somewhere other than Sioux City.
