In 2016, Bay Tek purchased Skee-Ball, Inc and moved the manufacturing of Skee-Ball lanes from the East Coast to the heart of the Midwest in Pulaski, Wisconsin, home of Bay Tek Entertainment. The pride this small town has as home of Bay Tek and the renowned Skee-Ball brand was elevated on Friday April 16, 2021 when The Village of Pulaski Board of Directors and Village President, Reed Woodward unanimously approved a proclamation to change the town’s name from Pulaski to Pulaskee, honoring the 113-year-old brand.
Friday morning the community gathered on the north side of the city for the name change reveal. There they found a couple of Skee-Ball alley rollers on site and some delicious, branded cookies. The proclamation was read aloud, and everyone celebrated by playing on the Classic commercial lane and the Premium Home Arcade lane.
Part of the proclamation was to allow the name change for one day a year thereafter to make it an annual celebration. With bigger and better events for years to come to honor the brand and the fact that Skee-Ball lanes have been made in America since 1908!
