March 2019 Event
ASME Edmonton Social Mixer, Five Pin Bowling at Plaza Bowling Co.
The game of five-pin bowling was invented in 1909 at the Toronto Bowling Club in response to customer feedback that ten-pin was too strenuous; the game is played only in Canada. If you would like to socialize, enjoy a few rounds of five-pin bowling and see the behind the scene workings of an old school bowling alley please come and join the Northern Alberta ASME Section for a fun time at Plaza Bowling Co. Note that this is a family-friendly event, and attendees are welcome and encouraged to bring their partners.

Plaza Bowling Co. was opened by Lawrence Stride in 1959 and established as a gathering spot where people could socialize and master the art of five-pin bowling. The 16 five-pin wood lanes are the original lanes that were installed in 1959. Lawrence's son, Terry took over this Edmonton mainstay in '77 and kept the good times rolling for 39 years until he decided it was time to trade his bowling shoes for a cold pint and a warm patio. Terry has now passed the ball to his son, Trevor who continues the tradition of providing people with a great place to get social.
