We had an adult birthday celebration at Timber Lanes on Sat. It was fabulous!! There was plenty of seating to watch everyone bowl and socialize. The hightop seating was very nice. Food from the snack bar was perfect for a night out. Shelly and the rest of the staff were very friendly and accommodating.

I used to go here a lot under the old management, but stopped when it got really shady, and started frequenting other houses in DE and MD. I have returned to Timber Lanes under the new management and it is GREAT. I did not know Rick was the new owner, but I played little league and went to school with his sons. Rick, his wife, and sons have been an outstanding example of hard work and kindness since I have known them (over 20 years now). Rick is a very friendly, family oriented guy with a ton of bowling knowledge. Have had several balls drilled here, like to get in on Mondays whenever possible for dollar games. Will be a great asset to the community, hope people come in to check it out.

I came here on thanksgiving eve with my family and friends. I was extremely disappointed that I was kicked out an asked to split my game because they wanted to close at 8. I traveled up from virginia an had these plans set in place. The staff was extremely rude and self serving. I have never been to an establishment who kicked customers out because they wanted to go home! We spent 100 dollars an were willing to spend more. It's only a matter of time until this place goes under

Just bowled there for the first time since Rick took over and was really impressed with the quality of the facility - - quite an upgrade from its previous condition - - definitely worth more visits.

While the wonderful comments and praise continues to flow in for the NEW Timber Lanes and we want to thank you for that, there always seems to remain one in the bunch who needs to create drama. I want to take just a moment to reiterate that there is NO longer ANY affiliation with the previous owners of Oxford Strike n Spare. It would be great if people could move on and allow us our happiness and take Jason's name out of your mouth, let him go on with his life and his choices which do not concern us and discontinue using his name in association with Timber Lanes. THANKS!

Comment Date: 7/30/2014 Name: No more peanuts
So Jason is gone, anyone know where he is and what he is doing right now? Is he a full time peanut farmer now or no? Do they have bowling in prison? Wonder if his wife is looking for a new man yet?

A friend and I decided to check out Timber Lanes today after hearing the alley was under new ownership. What a great family friendly place with an AMAZING staff! Debby immediately greeted us and helped us to get our children set up on a lane. Our kids were having a great time bowling and my six year old reached his hand in for the ball and got his hand pinned in the ball return. We screamed for help and the ENTIRE staff came running. One shut off the ball return, another took the cover off, Debby immediately called 911 and Rick removed a floor board and cut the belt to the machine to free my son's hand. He reacted so quickly and without regard for his own equipment to help us. He was able to free his hand before any damage was done. I am so grateful! Please know that these are new owners with incredible customer service and CARE for their customers. They have no connection to the previous owner. Please go bowl and support them! You won't be disappointed.

This alley is now Timber Lanes. As I understand it, it's run by the folks that used to run the Pro Shop at Blue Hen lanes in Newark. The new owner's are creating a very FAMILY FRIENDLY environment. It's not a huge alley, and the equipment is a little old, but they're constantly making improvements. The price is great, and they are trying to create events to make your trip to the alley more fun and feasible. $20 for 2 people to bowl for 2 hours on a Friday night? I can't complain! They are fun, receptive, and committed to making an impression on the community. Stop by and visit, you won't regret it!

I am the new GM of the NEW Timber Lanes, formerly known as Oxford Strike n' Spare. I come from the former Blue Hen Lanes in Newark, DE which was closed due to the landlord. Our new owners are from the Oxford community and have been in the bowling industry for years! I too am an OAHS graduate. There is NO affiliation with previous owners. We welcome you to come out and see for yourself!! Please look for us (Timber Lanes) on FB, Google+, and through word of mouth. We are in the process of some great improvements and hope you will stop by and see us real soon!!!

This bowling alley is no longer!! As of the end of May the name is now Timber lanes! New owners, new management you don't have to worry about your children anymore! June 28th we're having an even with DJ cosmic bowling and prize wheel! We have since put in new carpet and working on new tables, chairs and a new pro shop! Please come back Oxford people and see all the new changes!

We are also from the Blue Hens in Delaware which is closing and Rick now has the Oxford Alley and he is a great guy and is working hard to upgrade the bowling alley. Our league is now bowling there.

Comment Date: 6/10/2014 Name: Anonymous
I went to the lanes to see for myself. I was able to meet the new owner and his wife. It is true it has been sold. The place is looking great. I will be supporting them.

I know the new owner HE IS NOT RELATED TO THE OLD a new day so lets bowl.....

Comment Date: 5/12/2014 Name: oxford res
So, what's the story? Does his wife own the alley now? Or is it someone not related to that filthy trash? I will not support this guy or his family. Would love to support a new owner, I think it would be great for our community to be a place where family's can hang out. I would never leave my kids there alone, I feel bad for the children who were effected by this turd. Would love an update. Thanks

hey all you oxford bowlers the new management is coming and this summer a PBA league is coming to the new timber lanes. If you have a 200 average step up and try some real bowling, but leave your egos at the door. Summer school starts on 5-15-14

Comment Date: 5/7/2014 Name: Joy
It most certainly is under new ownership. Just changed over in the past few weeks. The will be changing the name of the alley. I personally know the new owner and manager-to-be. They are both coming from Blue Hen Lanes in Newark, De, which is closing. They are great people and I believe will totally change the atmosphere of the lanes there. I wish them all the best and may even take the trip from Elkton, Md to bowl there over the summer.

Comment Date: 5/2/2014 Name: Don
This bowling house has been sold. New management took over 5/1/14. The ne owner is a very reliable person. This summer give them a try

I just contacted the sheriffs office and the bowling center is owned and operated by the Jason snyder's (he's in jail for indecent exposure) family. THE STRIKE n SPARE was NEVER SOLD and is NOT under new management.

Comment Date: 4/2/2014 Name: Anonymous
The center is under new owner and management from what I've heard so give them a few months to get started then please give them a try I think you'll have a better experience

Terrible bowling alley . . For weeks now have tried to spend time with my family since moving out and have changed their hours several times or are not there when they should be open. Lost our business

Oxford Strike n Spare has been SOLD!! Now under new management, the community can finely get back to BOWLING!!!

Comment Date: 1/11/2014 Name: Act Mature
I understand you all fear for your children but it's your responsibility to watch them. He's in jail now. You are all grown adults and are sitting here flipping out saying things about Jason. Yes he exposed himself twice but all things can be prevented..if they would have actually watched their children it might have not happened. Besides the bowling alley is going into the ground way farther with Denise who likes to cheat on Jason and she yells at little kids. That bowling alley needs way better management than her. She got with him and destroyed the bowling into the ground. So watch what you say remember your GROWN ADULTS! Act like it.

What makes things worse he owns a trailer park in wrightville an it loaded with childeren.

Comment Date: 8/14/2013 Name: ex bowler
how this bowling alley has not been sold yet is crazy. He does stupid crap like this 2 times and then he puts it in his wifes name. Girl i feel for you. Sell the bowling alley, take the money and leave his ass. That way he has nothing when he gets out. I bowled there for 35 years and will not bowl there again unless new owners take over. It really could be a nice bowling alley with the right people running it.

If you are with hi all the way after not on but 2 convictictions you are delusional.

Comment Date: 7/24/2013 Name: Collateral Damage
Jason received 3-6 yrs, then 4 yrs probation, and no contact with minors, and not allowed to work at the bowling alley upon release. He apologized for his actions - accepting the blame. I only add that because until court testimony he had continued to tell all of his supporters that he did not do it. Jason is obviously a sick individual, and I hope he gets help. However, I, and his other supporters won't be duped again - he's on his own.

Just to let you know Jason again did it but this time he went to jail!!! Thank god the system got it right and put him away! Stay away from his nasty place don't give your money to a 2x convicted sex offender!!

Comment Date: 4/7/2013 Name: LS
Jason was just arrested again, back in November he exposed himself to two girls ages 10 and 11. Why is he allowed to be at a bowling alley where he's around young children all the time?!? Hopefully he gets some jail time.

Comment Date: 3/27/2013 Name: john
The man exposed him self,he did not rape,or touch the girls,not saying what he did is right,but get your facts straight. What kind of parents would leave their young children at a public place unattended,maybe if the parents would of been more responsible this may not of happened. I think it is SICK thing to do,but it makes me even more sick that the parents were so irresponsible.

Jason was arrested again last winter - not sure if he's currently in jail or out.

Comment Date: 3/17/2013 Name: Anonymous
I feel like no one should be bowling at this alley while Jason Snyder, a sex offender, is the owner of it. Some say he did his time, but he is a sick individual. He is in jail again with the same charges, I hope he stays in this time and gets what he deserves. Parents should know DO NOT take your children to this alley.

Well this sick pig did it again! He exposed himself to young girls late in the year of 2012 and was finally arrested this week, he currently is in Chester County Prison awaiting his hearing. Maybe people will realize he is a sick pathetic man that needs to be locked up before he rapes one of our young daughters!!! If you want the article its in the Daily Local Newspaper on March 5, 2013

i am from upstate ny and i just moved here a year ago i have bowled for 15 years and i am a state and stac (southern tier athletic congress) champion for chenango valley high school and since i have moved this is the best alley i have shot at. they have great lane conditions and a great shot.i recomend this place to any good bowler and to people that just want to have fun.

Comment Date: 2/17/2011 Name: Oxford Mom
We have been going to the bowling alley for several years for parties, leagues and just having fun. Jason and Denise are two of the sweetest people and if you can't look for the good in people then maybe you shouldn't go. I have kids and just like the grocery store, I would not let them run around unattended. He did his time, who are you to judge?!? If you don't like the place, fine, but don't use this to bash someone else...I am sure you are not the perfect person that everyone thinks you are. We all make mistakes, some of us get caught, some of us don't. Some are worse than others...we all make our choices and then we have to live with it...just what Jason is doing. How do you think he feels that people are bashing him and it was 4 years ago...give him a break and worry about your own life!!! In my opinion and I am sure no one will even care how I feel about the place since everyone just seems to say what a horrible person he is, but if you want to have fun and not pay much...then go and have fun. If you want to be a stick in the mud and sit on your high horse thinking that you are better...then don't!!!

Here is what I have to add to this. Whether or not the guy is in the building, he owns the place. I would not give his business any of my money. As for the fact that there are registered offenders everywhere, yes that is correct. As a parent I research this before I decide where to spend my money and take my children. Of course I dont know who is working at my local acme or walgreens, but before I book a party or decide where to spend time with my kids I check the website and research a bit. These are my children it is worth the time to check it out and it is worth the time drive to different bowling alley.

Comment Date: 1/7/2011 Name: kmk
So what exactly did Jason do? Just curious.

Wow, I came to this site looking to rate the close-by bowling alleys, but instead I found a forum to try and destroy several people. The wrong place in my opinion!, But being somewhat curious, I did some investigation int owha tI was reading, and thus, I add my two cents now as well. It seems that the individual in question has admitted some wrong doing, done his penance, and is now attempting to be a respectable member of society, going to work everyday, paying taxes, etc. The man may or may not have made a mistake. Now give the guy a break. Whilst sorry that the incident may have involved some younger people, please trust the fact that based upon what I was told occured, it pales compared to what our children are exposed to on a daily basis by their peers, television, the movies, games, and most especially the internet! Regarding the injuries sustained by a customer while involved in an altercation, or the victim of an assualt, two observations need ot be made regarding same, most importantly, one needs to take personal responsability when drinking, especially in a public location as anywhere else. One should not search out others to blame for such and unfortunate yet likely personally preventable incident. Bottom line, good luck and best wishes to each of you, but get over your anger and overwhelming desire for whatever pound of revenge you can get. Take your gripes to a forum set up for just the that. NOT a furom to rate bowling alleys, it makes you look petty and desperate.

So, when your daughter is old enough, you'll take her to Oxford Lanes so she too can be molested by Jason? And, you really believe that "it's absurd that you choose not to go bowling because of criminal background"? Really?! The "criminal background" was that he molested children! And, you feel that it's good to go to an establishment where children were molested, and the molester is still there? And you want to do this just because you are bored?! I feel so sorry for your children, they should be taken away from you. K Breezy, you are a bad mother.

Comment Date: 12/15/2010 Name: K Breezy
so just because jason has a bad background he's a horrible person and people should avoid the bowling alley? first of all, i take my son there all the time. when my daughters old enough i'll take her too. jason is a long time friend of the family and it's absurd that you choose not to go bowling because of criminal background. local murderers and such work at your fast food resturants and grocery stores. are you going to stop shopping there because your cashier or bagger is a murderer? i doubt it. come on now, it's oxford pa, don't bash on one of the only things we have to do when we're bored.

I've been there a few times and it was ok! But I had no idea the owner was a registered sex offender, I'm don't care much for bowling but I was looking for an idea for my son's b-day party and thought to use Strike n' Spare but now that I know this, I'm definately marking this as a big fat "NO". And to those that think it's ok to take your children around this person your in need of serious help! He should not be allowed to own a business where children are involved.

Comment Date: 10/18/2010 Name: JCAL (victims brother)
i am 1 the victims brother. I cant beleive people say he didnt do it and stick up for this guy. Also people say if u dont want it to happen watch your kids? what kind of parents are you?! people dont even know what really happened, and if they did, parents would be a little more worried when they walk in there with their kids. Also, JESS, who talks about the victims mother about them hiding behind the computer, but you have been called out by the website for having multiple names... u are a joke. Unlike you, i do not have to hide my name or anything; if want ur kids to be sexually violated, oxford strike N spare is the best place to go for sure. so all the people saying forgive him, dont slander the business bc of someone who works there... it just shows u dont know anything, HE OWNS THE PLACE; its not like an employee messed up, jason owns the place and goes around pulling his peanut out to little kids, in between asnwering the phone....

the center isnt too bad of a place. not as bad as i remember it being anyway. good food and cheap bowling. i think some new carpet is in order cause i can see the concrete in some places. as for jasons wife i think they havent been together in a while, like a couple of years. Now there is a somewhat new face up there i believe should be replaced. she just doesnt seem like she cares about customers as much as she could, and she has a real messed up attitude

His wife is a {deleted}! I had the unfortunate pleasure of meeting her several times thanks to a family member. As for all the bad comments about the place. Its the only fun place around our little country towns to have some fun and it doesnt break the bank! The things that have been reported to have happened there, could of happened and has happened anywhere. Even the local schools! It doesnt make it right, but its no reason to shut the place down. We have to talk to our kids and pray for the best! Personally, I wish they would stop building the darn houses, banks and drug stores! Build some fun places to go for the kids and parents too! Movies, skating, remember Funscape? If I had the money I'd buy the Red Rose and make it a fun place for all. Best Wishes to all! Be Safe! Kiss your kids and tell your family you love them! You never know what tomorrow will bring! God Bless to all! :)

I knew Jason several years ago when he was married...I cannot think of her name for the life of me...and always found him incredibly creepy. I wouldn't allow my children to go there because I would be looking over my shoulder for him the entire time. I would assume that his wife left him?

Comment Date: 6/26/2010 Name: Anonymous
We weren't sure whether or not to go to this center due to all of the controversy. However, we did and had a great time! We watched our kids (just like we do EVERYWHERE we go) and we all had fun. The food was good, the staff was friendly and accomodating!

Comment Date: 3/1/2010 Name: Weekend Bowler
I have been going to his bowling alley for with my kids for over two months. When i first met the staff there, they were friendly and treated us well. I knew about jasons past and yes it did bother me but as a parent i watch my kids closely, they dont go walking around by them selves, either my husband or myself go with them. I understand what he did, but if parents would watch their kids, then nothing will happen. im just saying that with me or my husband watching our kids, Jason cant or do anything to them. Yes they could do some more improvements and offer more promotions for familys during the week. I do have to say though that this weekend it was packed and we went up there three times before someone asked us if we wanted them to hold lanes for us, maybe they could start learning a little bit more business like things. Like tend a little bit more to returning bowlers, because i didnt like being ignored because he wanted to make money from the people who were drinking, i just didnt like that.

I went to this bowling alley last weekend with some friends when we heard it was BYOB. I keep reading about how angry people are that you can bring your own liquor, but this is quite common in PA where it is hard/expensive to obtain a liquor license. Many reputable businesses and restaurants are also BYOB and the cops don't have to troll them. I was excited to go bowling without having to pay through the nose for watery, crappy beer. We brought our own cooler and drank as we played. As for the decor, from everything I'd read about I thought this place would be horribly decayed, but it seemed like a typical bowling alley as far as cleanliness. A square of carpet could use some replacing, but other than that it seemed like any other alley and better than some. I was very pleasantly surprised over how clean the bathroom was. But yes it's older and not nice and new like the Middletown DE bowling alley. The boardwalk fries were excellent and my friends informed me that the mozzarella sticks were likewise tasty. The staff was very friendly. When there was a glitch and our scores were restarted after 2 of us had bowled the first frame, they gave us a game free. They even invited us to play one more game as they cleaned up, which we did. The drawbacks were that the patrons were mostly teens and the music was not to my taste, but other than that it was affordable and enjoyable.

It don't matter to Jason. But you're not foolin' me, man. This bush league psyche-out stuff. Laughable, man - ha ha!

I recently was invited to bowl at Oxford lanes. I declined due to the owners criminal record. I have bowled at Oxford lanes prior to having this knowledge. I brought my son and I have to say I was not impressed. It was run down and dirty, but the bowling was ok. I would recommend AMF Price Lanes in Newark, Delaware. AS for the controversy surrounding this business, I support those who decline to support a convicted sex offender. Why look over your shoulder when you are trying to have fun with your children? Go somewhere else!!!

its no smoking in there now too. you should join their winter leagues. there's a cake new shot put down and its somethin to do. Oh and try the food there too cuz its gettin alot better. Oh and this alley is in OXFORD PA so that explains the lack of business

just a thought, if you are so concerned with the sex offender issue, then don't let your kid(s) go without you. This childish slander and mudslinging is absurd. People just want to know about the actual alley and what it has to offer, NOT what you personally feel about the employees/owners, whatever. GET OVER IT!!! The alley isn't bad, except for people smoking in there.

Once again, sex offender. I hate to tell you but there are so many sex offenders that you could have one living next to you, working at your grocery store, delivering your mail, cooking your food. Theres one who works at a bowling alley. Hes a person too and is making a living. If you dont want your kids there, then like I said, dont send them there. But there is no need to slander this business, because of the person who works there. and you can go ahead, and censor my comment as you did before, whats shockign with that. Just leave it to some to not let others voices out. **Note from B2U Staff - Your previous comment contained inappropriate content, thus was not posted**

You obviously don't have children and don't want to keep any children safe. Grow up and realize that Jason Snyder is a REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER for ten years. He pleaded GUILTY and had the chance to plead innocent but he knew what he did and he was wrong. But you keep thinking what you want. He will always have this criminal record and he will follow him where ever he goes!!! Jason is a dirty pig!!!

Say what you want, and what happened happened. {Comment deleted} If you want a place for your kids to be able to go rather than on the streets then keep your mouth shut. Cheap prices and never crowded means a fun weekend night for you and the friends.**Note from B2U Staff - Maybe it's never crowded for a reason? We're just saying...**

Comment Date: 1/21/2009 Name: You should know who this is
Are you stupid why would anyone put their names on here? you obviously are mental yourself, if you think jason is so great then why in the heck does he have to have an adult around him everytime he's at the bowling alley? Its funny, yeah i have better things to do with my life, but i think everyone should be informed of how this disgusting person is, and it's their choice weather or not they want to allow their children to continue to go to the bowling alley, now why dont you get your head out of your a** and stop acting like you know everything. And to the victims mom i understand what your saying completley because i have a normal mind unlike other people. Jason is a sex offender who should not be out of jail, they should through him in there and throw the key away its as simple as that, and i'm sure their were more children that he messed with other than the ones in oxford. So now you tell me a**h*le if i have anything else better to do than warn people, before their child could be hurt for the rest of their lives, i'm sure you've never been violated so you dont care, but if you were as a young child i'm sure you would understand, but until then keep defendin that sick freak.

Thank you Bowling2u staff, I hide behind this name because I do not want to have my daughters name out in the public. She does not need to have her name out there for the public to know her because of this sick disgusting man Jason! If you had common sense you would have known that. But I see you stick up for Jason so you must be a piece of garbage just like him. This website is on the computer for everyone and anyone to post good or bad about this place and this is my way of getting it to the public. You can say he didn't do it but if he was innocent he would have not pleaded guitly to such a awful crime. He would of taken those little girls to trial but he knew he would have gone to jail so he took the plea bargain!! If you are such a good friend to Jason where were you in court? He had to come to all his court dates all by himself. I think we all know what a pig he is and finally we the parents believed our children and took it as far as getting him convicted. So I will continue to hide behind my name here and keep telling everyone what a horrible place this is and hope we run Jason and maybe you out of Chester County!!!!! ONCE A SEX OFFENDER ALWAYS A SEX OFFENDER. Thanks Bowling2u!!!

You have also posted as stanely, bowler, and anonymos, as well as jess! Which name is really yours? Or are they all made up?**

Comment Date: 12/26/2008 Name: Victims Mother
We can all sit here and write what we hate or love about this place, but the law is the law and Jason is a CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER! Whether you want to believe it or not, he was convicted of this awful crime and he will have to pay for it for the rest of his life. He got what he deserved and hopefully will not ever do this again. Our children that he did this to have to live with it also and it's disgusting and horrible. So we can all keep getting the word out and I am not sorry if it's hurting his business. I know many schools that would take their children there for school functions and have pulled out. And that is great! If we could only get everyone to stop going there if would be even better, or just get Jason run out of Chester County! Megan's law proves it all!!!!!!!

I understand parents concerns but lets talk about why these parents are dropping off their younger children and teenagers off and expecting the staff at the bowling alley to be responsible??? The bowling alley is not a baby sitting drop off spot. And to correct those who state that underage drinking is allowed...that's B/S. Your sneaky kids bring the booze in their purses and coats and wait til the lights go out. Then it all comes out. The staff will walk up and down the concourse area throughout the evening to make sure all is well. If there was suspicion of under agers, they were carded. If they were too young or claimed to not have I.D., the alchohol was confinscated. the refrigerater mentioned in an above comment was for sodas when the snack bar was not there yet. Jason keeps it there for the league bowlers that ARE of age to put their drinks in as a courteousy. How do I know all the carding was happening...Because I was the one doing it. So you all can listen to rumors, some of which are true but who decides which ones are real and which are not?????????????????

i go there a lot. it seems like an okay place. prices are pretty good compared to other allys i suppose. oh and about that jason guy, if he is there he is usually in the back room if hes working so its not like hes out staring at any little girls but everyone has there own opinion i suppose, i mean the place is okay by me

i have said alot of bad things about the bowling alley but i have to say i went there over the weekend and i have seen a change in it there they card everyone that comes in the door now and the staff are very helpful and respectful to everyone

Comment Date: 12/21/2008 Name: bowler
i think the lanes are ok there and the rates for bowling and food are pretty cheap. they also sell boardwalk fries there which you cant find around this area. they could use some new carpet there though cause its the same stuff since jack owned the place. all in all its ok by me

is this what everyone does all day, do they just come on this site that like maybe a total of 10 people have looked at to talk bad about the place. you know whats sad, it doesnt matter what your saying right now because people are still coming here and bowling so have fun blogging away. oh and to the reguards of the drinking comment thank you because thats finally a comment that hasnt been posted a thousand times and they've cracked down on it since. so everyone have fun talking about the guy everyones whining about and his now dead father..

Comment Date: 12/14/2008 Name: Victim
To anyone who thinks Jason Snyder is innocent & that everyone should drop it & just go bowl, they are wrong. This man has ruined many younge girls lives, and it's horrible. He showed his self to little girls in the bowling alley what kind of a person is he? Like they wouldnt say anything to their parents. But what no one else know's is that he has done worest. Not only has he showed himself to innocent Children but he has molested them to. I would no, and all of the victims are the same ages or maybe younger, who knows how many children this creep has messed with, and messed their lives up for good. He is a sick freak and he deserves to be in jail, and no one should go and give him bussiness. I've known him for awhile and when i used to go there he would check out all the young girls and say disgusting things about them, he is not right in the head. So no parent should ever let their child there i would never let mine go anywhere near there. Even before he moved to Oxford he lived in York its hard to tell whether he did anything to any child up there, but i wouldn't put it past him. He has ruined my life & if i could of testified against him he would not be around today, but i was to young to go through that & he had already scared me enough to ever look at him again, I didnt know what he was doing to me, but he continued for 3 years. Goes to show how great of a guy he is right? So if you allow your children to go there beware because even if he is considered a sex offender and was put in jail does not mean he gives a crap, he has a mental issue and he will NEVER change. But lets not worry because he will get whats coming to him someday. Just know that he has scarred many children & their lives will probably never me the same again. So i advise anyone who is smart not to go there, and dont even try to defend that sick freak, because if you do then theres something wrong with you as well. And i believe them girls about him showing himself, i've seen him do it before so i wouldnt put him past him.

I don't think that a PEDOPHILE!!! should live and be associated with a place where little kids want to have fun..The place is disgusting inside..A man that molested little children lives right behind it..And his father owns the place. The place is a joke and i don't think anyone should do business there..who in there right mind would take kids to a place where they could be molested? NO ONE! i say! he IS A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER and a pervert in my eyes. The place should be shut down immediately.

Comment Date: 10/17/2008 Name: anonymous
Something should be done about the underage drinking allowed at the bowling alley after 9pm. Why aren't the cops there more often monitoring this? Aren't they concerned about the driving that happens when these kids leave there drunk? People in the community should make their voices heard and clean up that place. It could be a nice place for our kids to go if there was a respectable owner who ran it. Jason is disgusting and pervert, he shouldn't be allowed to run a business where young kids go after what he was convicted of.

Comment Date: 10/10/2008 Name: From one of the victims mother
I wish there was a way to notify the public more of this horrible act that Jason Snyder did to three young 10 and 11 year old girls. But if you go to the daily local on Sept. 3, 2006 there is the article of Bowling Alley owner sentenced. Please get the word out do what you need to. This is the only way we can keep innocent children from getting hurt. This bowling alley is a disgrace to oxford and to chester county. Jason lets underaged kids in there to drink and then big fights break out, there was one where a young man was seriously injured. *Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

This place does need to be shut down. I am currently 18 years old, but 4 years ago, I was one of those kids at the bowling alley, one of the I'm sure to be many to be hurt by this guy. It kills me to see that sign out front that says "BIRTHDAY PARTIES". To know little kids will be there. To know that my pain is being felt by others. I didn't come forward until 2 years later, so my statement wasn't really cared for. But this place needs to be shut down. No one deserves what this man does.

Aaron, please think about everything that has happened at the bowling alley before you go ahead and tell the community just to stop complaining and bowl! This place needs to be shut down and soon. God knows how many kids have been hurt and not come forward, wether it's from fights or jason hurting them. One day you will have children and you will know what us as parents have gone through. The Oxford community and surrounding areas need to go the extra mile and go somewhere else to bowl. Drinking and drugs at your age it will catch up to sooner or later!!!!!

Dear Anon, Just go bowl and don't worry about it?????? What will the kids do??? The kids can't be doing any worse than they are there.!!!! I have spent over a year and 10.000 on that so called bowling alley so don't tell me to go bowl and don't worry about it##### That is not a discussion you wish to have with me. Until you have stood where I stand leave it alone. Cheap lanes ? At what cost to the patrons Close to home? I would rather stay home You have a lot of nerve !!!! The families on here have all been extremely hurt due to Oxford Strike And Spares Lack of respect for the Oxford community. I guess you must be one of the little boys or girls that go there to drink and party. Well have fun as long as it remains open!!!!!!

Comment Date: 7/2/2008 Name: anon
Just go and bowl, don't worry about it. If you get the bowling alley shut down, who knows what all of the kids there will go out and do. Think about what your saying, Cheap rates and lane availability is excellent. Plus, it's 2 minutes away. Works for me everytime

Thank You for your support hurting parent. You have no ideal how those little acts of kindness help me believe in human kind again after last year I trust no one to be kind. I think I fought with all of Chester County last year and believe me one person did make a difference. Now this year is to wrap up the lose ends and Oxford Strike and Spare is one. I am going to list an email address here and I hope bowling 2 u . com will be kind enough to allow it. And once again I will remind everyone I do not want to argue about that night or anything else. I love my children more than life even if they are adults and to send me a nasty email will only hurt you. So don't waste my time and just be aware that I work for Homeland Security and it's not hard to trace people down via computer. So if you don't agree with me that's your business. Don't contact me. If you do agree please email me {email removed - So sorry, we can not post personal email addresses - B2U Staff} We Can Make Chester County alittle safer.

To Karma, my heart aches for you and your son and I would love to do something about this disgusting bowling alley! We need to come forward and find a way to get rid of this bowling alley. But how??? I am so glad you put your story out about your son. I had no idea that this happened. What kind of person is Jason really. Yes I know his dad owns this place but Jason is the person there running it and letting and doing these awful things. We need to STOP this. Let me know what to do?

Comment Date: 3/19/2008 Name: Krama
I will ask each one of you posting things about Jason or the bowling alley to put it up front and out in the open instead of hiding behind a computer screen. Jason does not own the bowling alley his father does. The last time I saw him there was a few weeks ago. So yes, he still is there. I asked Chester County District attorney about the rules in Pa. There is one Rule! you must register as a sex offender. That is it!! You can work or be any place you want. The state of Pa. has some of the stupidest rules I have ever heard of (For example if you only punch someone one time (and really do not mean to hurt them) you can only be charged with simple assault. This is only a misdemeanor. No matter the damages that it caused. This brings me to why I have been reading your comments because I did a search on Oxford Strike and Spare. I have a story about Oxford Strike and Spare but it has nothing to do with the sex offender part. My Son was there on Jan.26, 2007 to Bowl and Glo (Whatever that is) My son ended up on the floor and was in a 2-day coma. Jason did not assault him but he allowed it to happen. He encourages underage drinking. (Now I understand why). He has a cooler to put your beer in when you enter. He left my son on the floor while he cleared out his underage drinking patrons. This could have cost my son his life. His brain was hemorrhaging. Luckily, some people began to take care of him. When I went to see Mr. Snyder, I really thought he was a nice person and had tried to do everything he could for my son. Even though Pa. state police told me he was only telling me what I wanted to hear to avoid a lawsuit .I want to see the good in people so I still believed him. But after a while, too many things he told me turned out to be lies. The witnesses he brought me never showed up to give a statement. The person that assaulted my son has been to the bowling alley on a regular basis and was even friends with part of the employees, they claimed not to know who it was and even gave me a description that was totally the opposite of what the person looked like. How do I know he allows or encourages underage drinking? The kids that showed up at the hospital that night were intoxicated and some were only 15 or 16. My son was intoxicated that night he is 24 years old, was not in his car, and had no intention of driving. I have been told by many youths that the underage drinking has been allowed since it has been open. I did not know this nor did I know about Jason Snyder. But I plan to do more than just talk about the problems at Oxford Strike and Spare and if you want to do more that hide behind a computer screen then let me know. And I will gladly put you in touch with someone that will listen. I will not even begin to tell you what the past year has been like. But to give you an example my son now has no bones in the left side of his face he has seizures and will always deal with double vision. He has BC/BS insurance but my out of pocket expenses were over $10,000 last year. My heart hurts for the little girls this happened to. But I will tell you that you love your children just as much when they are adults and I hurt the same as anyone does to watch their child hurt. My son's weight on the night this happened was 115lbs. By the time the surgeries and everything were finished his weight was 89lbs. I sat at my counter and watched him take tiny pieces of pancake and push them into his mouth so he could chew them. The person that hurt him was lucky I could control that anger. Because I lay awake at nights with so much hate for that person, I could not sleep. I feel the same about the bowling alley. There was a church group bowling and a birthday party going on when this happened. The testimony in court was the entire place was fighting! bottles being thrown baseball bats being swung. Why would you allow a place to remain open in your community like that? Why would you take your children there? Are you that cheap? That saving a few bucks is more important than your child is. I have been to the justice system. They do not protect anybody (maybe the criminals). So it is up to us to protect our own. All I have ask for is justice for my son and not one concerned citizen or parent that was at that bowling alley that night came forward to help me push the justice system, so I can only assume that the people there did not give a crap about my son. If your child ever is in the same position and I am there, I will come forward and ease your pain even if you did not. Because I answer to a higher power for the wrongs, I do to other people. I want to take this business out of the community but the only way is to make it so hard for the owner to find insurance that will cover the place he will close his doors. Revenge YES???? And I am not finished yet!! I have not had any luck getting people to do much more than complain but maybe one or two of you are different. I am not putting this here for arguments, so if you want to battle about something do not bother replying to my comment. I know what went on that night I know my son was involved in some kind of altercation. The last thing he remembers is talking with Jason Snyder. The next thing is 2 days later. My Son has been to court and taken whatever punishment the judge felt necessary. He has also stood before the judge and cried about the pain he has endured during the plea bargain with the person that hit him (ONE TIME). Only to be reminded that PA. Is an intent state, did he mean to hurt you that much? Well I can tell you if I hit you, it is going to be to hurt you. And at 115 lbs and 56, I am sure he was quite threatening!!!! So to that person I say you were and are a chicken. And someday someone will hurt someone you love and this will all come crashing back. To the bowling alley, I will say why not get rid of the alcohol and young kids why not run a legitimate business clean up your act? Or close the doors before someone dies. With all of the coverage, the sex offender listing has gotten. Why not work somewhere else. Why not stay away from the bowling alley. Is it that hard to find a job that does not interact with our children? Let parents do their job protecting their children. The bowling alley cannot be that profitable. Thank you for your time anyone that would like to speak with me I am not sure how to leave you a # or email address. I guess you can reply on here and I will find a way to contact you. This is your chance to make a difference.

So you are saying these parents sat there and watched all of this indecent event occur? I don't follow... In your previous post you were ignorant regarding the correct usage of the word ignorant. If I live in Oxford, I'll take the 5 minute drive to the Spare N Strike (where this inhuman predator is managing) over a 45 minute drive to the other places mentioned. I mean come on, we all need to be going to the Spare N Strike to make sure Jason is keeping his ducks in line right? We don't want it to be empty (save for kid's parents) and a kid get molested or something - this makes perfect sense. Sorry I got carried away with the sarcasm there, but I was sarcastically trying to illustrate the manner in which you (guy below me) are getting too worked up over this foolish debate. If what he did was so wrong and he is so uncontrollable - then why is he walking the streets? Again, I'd like to try to pull the focus off of the manager and maybe mention something about the place. Here's my likes: 1) Cheap rates 2) Adequate equipment 3) Open with lanes available almost always Dislikes: 1) Shoddy appearance 2) Minimal things to do besides bowl That wasn't so hard was it? Just say something about the place, don't post slanderous remarks about someone on the internet when the evidence is lacking.

Just to answer your question "who was supervising these young children", Jason was a family friend of two of the girls!!! So the parents thought Jason was a friend and why would a friend prey on these girls. The parents were in the next lane. There is the answer to your question and for you to post what you did is just as ignorant as Jason. And for the property of the bowling alley, it's dirty, old and very smoking. Need a good bowling alley? The Palace in Downingtown is great and there is one in Pike Creek Delware. Try them! *Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

Excuse my abrasiveness but you guys sound pretty foolish. Not one mention has been made to anything about the bowling alley's properties. Well OK one....the owner has a questionable personality. Who was responsible for watching these 10 and 11 year olds is the real question. If you child is young enough to be 'prey' then the guardian/parent should have an eye or suitable replacement - regardless of whether it's a public place or not. So can someone please say something about whether the lanes are allright or is there any thing special about this place? Whether an owner is reputable or not does not affect the possibility of a sexual predator being on the lane adjacent to your little prized possesions (who just happen to incapable of handling themselves or are lacking supervision). Furthermore, I do not smoke and I don't mind people that do. I think it does add to business. Breathing second hand smoke is no worse then thousands of occurences that happen weekly through our lives anyway. Want better lungs? Keep exercising. Why don't you guys talk about the real issue at hand here, I heard one of the workers there picks his nose.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

In reference to the comment below: You can't be as sick as those mother of the THREE little girls were when your so called friend violated the child's innocence!!! For everyone that says Jason is innocent you must not have children of your own because if you did you would feel them same sickness that these families feel towards Jason. I am glad Jason isn't around the bowling alley hardly maybe we have run him out of Oxford and Chester County! That would be awesome now just pray he isn't in York County hurting other children.

like that one person said there are 12 other sex offenders in this area and every1 is worried about Jason. Yeah he owns a business but in that sense every1 should know since he owns a business he gets watched. these other 12 aren't being watch over so while they are out doing the wrong thins every1 is concerned about jason. I think every1 should leave him alone because he is never even at the bowling alley when is the last time you have seen Jason there??? If you can answer that question then I understand where you are comming from in a way but he is never there I think all of this is a bunch of bull any way i dont think he did anything to those 2 little girls.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

This website is about getting information out to the public that deal with bowling alleys. This is why we post about Jason. If the other 12 sex offenders own a business like Jason then I will find somewhere to warn the public about them. But until then I will keep warning the public about Jason Allen Snyder who owns and operates the bowling alley in Oxford. Bowling2U has been great buy letting us post this. I hope everyone finds out about this website because it may save one child from getting harmed by this sick man.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

As I sit here and read all the comments I wonder if everyone truly understands what he did. You make think he is a great guy and has never done anything wrong to you but think of this, he took away 3 girls innocents. They were 10 and 11 years old and he did something that no one should have to go through. He had his chance to take it to court and prove his innocence and he was found GUILTY. Guilty that he is on probation for 7 years and on Megans Law for 10 years. If he didn't do this then he should have proved his innocence to the court and he every chance to do this. Sexual Preditors never come to term with thier addictions. It sounds like he can't either as he has all you fooled. He also was just in jail in July of 2007 till Nov of 2007 for breaking his probation. He may come across as a great guy but watch out once a sexual preditor he will always be one. Just keep yourself safe and those little kids. The bowling alley should be shut down or he should just leave the area. Our community doesn't need poeple like him around.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

Well, i'm not trying to stick up for him or whatever he did, but everytime I have been to that bowling alley, nothing has been "out of place" or "wrong" and nothing has EVER been pulled on me. I think that it's really fun there but if he did do something, I understand what everyone below me means!*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

This bowling alley is nothing but a underage drinking hangout. No one should allow thier kids there alcohol is accessiable to any age and someone is going to get hurt. Not a safe place to bowl.

This is for "you know who I am". You say we need to mind our own business and leave Jason alone. He is a CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER and it is public record for everyone to know about this man. We are trying to keep all of our children safe and by this website they are helping us. It's ashame that he has you fooled because he's not going to stop hurting children since he violated his probation before his 1st year was marked. He is an adult and he scarred these children, something at there age should of never happened. Hopefully you wake up before he hurts someone you love. Oh, he can't anyone until he gets out of jail in Nov.!!!!! Thanks Bowling2u for letting us warn the public through your website.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

Does everyone know that Jason is in jail?? He has been having an affair with a 17 yr old!! Unfortunately the childs mother is OK with the relationship and is not pressing charges! What parent wouldn't find this offensive? Someone should get the facts straight here! There were other people who pressed charges against Jason. A few years ago he was charged with harrasement. He "pelvic thrusted" an under age girl who was playing a video game. Another person came forward but did not follow through due to the long process involved. It is very trying on a family to go through this. It can drag on for over a year before all is said and done.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

Not all things are as they look. With the control today's kids have been given, any body in the public arena(ministers, teachers,tutors,employees and/or owners of entertainment facilities) are at risk of being accused of sexual misconduct by children or teens angered at being corrected or being informed of behavorial misconduct by the establishment's owner or employees. This is one of the ways kids get even no matter what the cost is to the one accused. Being in the know of today's legal system, you are guilty unless you have the means to establish your innocence. Getting a lawyer and going to court for a jury trial to prove yourself innocent of sexual misconduct is easier "SAID" than "DONE". In the cases of minor childen, the accused is always considered guilty by the public, police and the justice system 99% of the time--for then the law and the people gravitate to the side of the children. Even if the accusations are false. Jason has been in and running this bowling alley for at least 6 years. To me it seems odd that only just a year(+ -) ago, this is the 1st incident to happen. Even when these children's parents or legal council advertised in the Oxford local papers for others to come forward if sexually inappropriate behavior happened to other childen, NO OTHERS came forward. This says alot too, that maybe no sexual misconduct ever happened. I have been to this bowling alley many times since the incident and Jason is never there alone when children are in the bowling center. He is always with other adult employees or his father. Because I am sure any "sex offender" is not allowed to work anywhere where children are unless other adults are also there to supervise. Any how, I ask?? How could any one "expose" themselves to children at a busy bowling ctr surrounded by lots of people without being seen by others?????*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

Just wanted to remind everyone about the owner of this bowling alley, Jason he is a convicted sex offender. He has been on Megan's Law for almost a year now and just want everyone to take note. Bowling 2 U has been great in keeping this site updated. Thanks for keeping our children safe.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

This is in response to Steve who stated that there are 100's and 1000's of sex offenders out in communities, right you are, however don't you think that a establishment that caters to young adults and children should not have a CONVICTED Sex offender (either he plead guilty or was convicted by a jury)working at the location. I am suprised that Pennsylvania does not have any restrictions in place for sex offenders. Only when a child is abducted and harmed does everyone become reactive and wonder why such restrictions were not in place in the first place.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

I am not taking any sides here, but let's face it, people are out to get one another. Nobody exactly knows what Jason did except the people who witness this act and Jason. I've seen him walking around the bowling alley and the fact is he should wear a belt. Did he happen to bend over and expose his plumbers crack? Who knows? But he should put a statement out because this definately is not good for business. For the lady who said she would fight for innocence if in deed that were the case. I beleive that's easier said than done. I have never been in this situation and I have always said the samething you were saying. I am almost convinced the only way you can prove your innocence is with a good lawyer who is going to charge megabucks. I heard something went down with him last year and now I know exactly and it is good to know. Thanks for the update.. *Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

I was shocked to read the last comment posted by Steve. If he was not guilty why wounldn't he proven his innocents! Evidently you don't have children or do you condone this type of behavior. I understand that false acusations do happen but he had the chance to prove his innocents and was found guilty and is on probation for 7 years and on megans law for 10 years. If I was innocent I would have proved it. We who have children are the advocates for thier rights and safety. This website is are way of getting it out to the public. And thank you for doing it. If you know that a owner of a business it a registered sex offender than keep your kids safe and stay out!!!!*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

I have to agree with the one part of the comment that Steve has written. He said there is 100's or 1000's of people that are listed on Megans Law. But what he is wrong about is that if a person is on Megans Law it is because they are CONVICTED of the crime not accused. The other part of his comment was that there are convicted sex offenders all over the place. This is very true. But as a parent, and you know for a fact that a person is a registered child sex offender, you would not put your child in harms way. I feel that if the parents of these children had known that the owner Jason is a child sex offender they would have never put their children thru this horrible ordeal. That is why it is very imopotant that the public be notified that Oxford Strike N Spare is not a place for children.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

I would just like to say, maybe the owner (Jason) did do something like that, but i highly doubt that he did..even so, if you look on the Megans Law Website, there are 100's, even 1000's of people that accused of that kinda stuff living around everywhere, so if your going to stop going to Oxford Strike And Spare just because of that, then you might wanna not go out to often to other places because they are all over like honestly, things like that could happen in any type of place at any time.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

It is very upsetting to know that there is person running a bowling alley where all ages attend and the owner has been cited for sexual misconduct. Then he only gets "a smack on the hand" and is right back in the public building. Something has to be done about this. The same thing or something even worse will happen again. How can someone who exposed himself to minors even face the public. I will no longer go there and I know there will be alot more people not going there. This is a disgrace to our community. *Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

I am here to warn the community about the owner/manager (Jason). I read in the newspaper that he is now a convicted sex offender because he exposed himself to three little girls at a birthday party at his bowling alley. What a horrible thing for these girls to have gone through. I really hope people are aware of this and hope your website takes this and can warn the public.*Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

Just to let everyone in Chester County know that this bowling alley is NOT a place for children. The owner (Jason) was convicted on 8/31/06 of indecent exposure, corruption of minors, and unlawful contact with minors. He is on probation for six years and is now a registered sex offender on Megan's Law. I am only doing this to protect all of our children. *Go to WWW.PAMEGANSLAW.STATE.PA.US to check this out - B2U Staff*

It's come a long way, but in order to improve business and attract more bowlers and families, etc., smoking must be prohibited indoors--why not have it best for both worlds: smokers can go outside; non-smokers would be happy to be inside and more business would come your way. Many people have joined leagues and never to rejoin because of this reason; families may go in during early hours (not as many smokers), but would love to go out at night with the kids or friends but won't because the smoke is horrible throughout. the discoloring of the walls, ceilings because of it...just not good. Now that the food is in place, it is fresh and new, keep it that way and make the change--it's a win win for all!

I enjoy bowling there but smoking should be limited to outside. The bowling alley is smaller which allows for you to be more exposed to the smoke. Even the employees of the bowling alley are smoking at the counter. The owner of the bowling alley is doing a great job of getting bowling alley into good shape, but I would recommend the following. Employees should have the courtesy to smoke outside. Allowing smoking in the building only harms the facility and all the people breathing the smoke. I'm sure smokers could wait a few hours to have a cigarette, I don't think eliminating smoking would have a major impact on your business. Another possibility is to have non smoking section. Birthday parties are good, but kids seem to track food down to the lanes. Create a party room by potentially eliminating the arcade room. Also, it's time to put a sign out by the road. The one out there almost appears as if the bowling alley doesn't exist. Overall, I know that the owner seems to be doing alot of good things. I'm not here to trash his center, but to recommended things that could improve his business. Hope to not offend any smokers, but walking through a cloud of smoke is just brutal.

I enjoy going to Oxford Strike N' Spare but I don't enjoy that people are allowed to smoke there.
