An auction scheduled for Tuesday at 66 Bowl has been postponed, owner Jim Haynes said this morning.

Dakil Auctioneers Inc. had been scheduled to auction off the neon sign and contents of 66 Bowl on Tuesday, but the plan fell through, Haynes said.

Auctioneer Louis Dakil said people can go the bowling alley at 10 a.m. Tuesday as planned and register and place advance bids. But because the closing of the bowling alley sale has been delayed at the request of the buyer, the auction has been delayed.

The historic bowling alley at 3810 NW 39 Expressway along Route 66 is under contract to be sold to Spices of India food store. The closing is scheduled for Sept. 17, and the parties involved have postponed the auction until Oct. 1 after the sale is complete, Haynes said.

Bowling equipment, pins, balls, shoes and other items are to be auctioned, Haynes said. The neon sign along NW 39 Expressway also is scheduled to go on the auction block, Haynes said.
