  • Prize Wheel of Fun

    I was asked to fabricate a Prize Wheel.
    This is what I came up with.

    The hardest part of fabrication was dividing the face into 32 equal spaces.
    We spin the wheel on league nights, and the team on the winning lane wins a prize.
    Pizza, ice cream, open bowling, ect.

    We leave our greatest mark on this earth with the quality of our craftsmanship.

    Re: Prize Wheel of Fun

    thats beautifully done. we have some store bought plastic ones, we do a casino bowl type thing for some kids bday parties, if they knock over a colored pin at all on either shot they get to spin the wheel and win a few peices of whatever type of candy it lands on.
    ours are crap next to what you made up and how nicely you made that one.

    for our leagues we have bingo ball spinner and a bunch of wooden balls with numbers on them. whichever lane it drops out the next player on that lane can win $100 for the team if they get a strike.
    i swear the front staff waits til the lower avergage bowlers are up on that lane most times, but somehow they seem to be the ones that manage it more often than not. had a lady i bowled with once, 120 or so average, she got it 3 times during the season, nobody else on the team got it at all. she made 2 out of 3 and it was her only strike all night both nights.....

        PinCup - Now you need to make a Vanna to spin that wheel.

        Looks real nice - the wheel I mean.

          We use a pill container like for pool and the first time we draw whatever number comes out that lane gets half priced drinks. The second number we draw is the person that gets there first drink free. So if we draw a 9 lane 9 gets half priced drinks. And then we draw a 3. Bowler 3 gets there first drink free.
