BC Lanes opens with new owners and a new look

For the first time in several years, Boyne City has its bowling alley back. BC Lanes "soft opened" for men's league play Wednesday and open bowling Thursday, exactly one year after Chris and Sandy Nelson purchased the business. The Nelsons' daughter, Shantel Erber, is the general manager of BC Lanes, which opens its 16 lanes at 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and at 10 a.m. on weekends. They are nearly finished with a top-to-bottom, inside-and-outside refurbishing of the 18,000-sq.-ft. bowling alley. Chris Nelson commented: "It feels good to have it open, but it's no time to relax. We still have some work to do, and our goal is to have a lot of satisfied customers." Satisfying customers is in the owners' DNA, though - they have owned BC Pizza for 25 years, starting in Boyne City and growing to more than 30 locations today. Having BC Pizza next door to BC Lanes is working out well already, since the kitchen at the bowling alley is still being finished. For now the restaurant provides pizza, pasta, sandwiches and salads from next door. Wings, burgers and fries will be added when the BC Lanes kitchen opens, hopefully by the end of October. The bar is open and functioning and will soon have a dozen televisions showing all kinds of sports events, including occasional pay-per-view events. BC Lanes is located at 1199 South M75, Boyne City. The new phone number is 231-582-6353.
