Thanks Erin! Your AMF's sound like our Brunswick's here. LOL Though I do agree the privately owned centers are pretty good, there aren't any very close to me. All 10+ miles away. Where there is a Brunswick, and a few AMF's within minutes of my house.


I bowl at a Brunswick house pretty much exclusively right now. They had the same manager for several years until they promoted him out and brought in someone else two years ago. The first manager was a real bowler who took real pride in the game, took care of the leagues as well as his workers. The new manager bowls, but I don't think knows all that much about it, many of the workers quit that had been there. He was terrible at ordering for the center, and wouldn't stand up for the workers when he should have.

It's still better to bowl there than AMF. They fired all the managers but one that were real bowlers, not just people that threw balls down the lane, for people that know nothing about bowling other than throw the ball at the pins. The one they kept kind of rotates around different centers and ends up at the Country Club Lanes when the PBA comes to town.

As for independent centers. The closest ones to me are close to an hours drive away.
