North Platte’s Cedar Bowl and Touchdown Club closed Tuesday after 36 years in operation. 

Owner Scott Rasmussen said he has put the property up for sale and closed now that bowling season ended.

A sign on the door has a schedule of times that bowlers can pick up equipment that they have stored there.

Rasmussen said a few buyers have expressed interest, including the owner of the Big Apple in Kearney. Rasmussen hopes a buyer will emerge during the summer. He said he does not plan to reopen in the fall.

The building was constructed in 1978 with 32 bowling lanes, a game room, kitchen, bar and restaurant. The kitchen, bar and restaurant – the Touchdown Club – alone cost about $1 million to build, Rasmussen said.

Rasmussen is asking $1.8 million for the property, a price that is in line with recent sales of similar properties on the busy one-way strip of Jeffers and Dewey. Properties that have sold in that area are now home to Walgreens, Modern Tire Pros and several separate banks.

The 2014 state Women's Bowling Tournament recently ended at the Cedar Bowl. The tournament ran from Feb. 22 to May 4. Nearly 3,000 women from all over the state took part in the competition.

The North Platte Women’s Bowling Association co-hosted the state tournament.
