I'm hearing a lot of the AMF centers around here are not going to open until 4 pm or later, which will eliminate senior and ladies leagues, and will also cut into Pro Shop business at those centers. But, if it saves the centers money by not having to turn on the lights during the day, that's what they'll do. It's hard to say that AMF was doing much of anything right after filing a couple of bankruptcies in the last 10 years or so.
One theory I heard was that Bowlmor was most interested in getting AMF's international centers, and that they'll look to sell off the US operations in a couple of years, especially if they're not really profitable.


They cut the hours at Rip Van Winkle the minute the merger was completed. The building opened at 4pm most days all summer and was closing by 10pm. This is (was) a very busy bowling center in a fairly affluent area. Pre merger they were charging almost $10.00 a game for open bowling and it was a profitable center according to my friends who work there. Of course this also probably explains why they chose this house as one of the first (from what I can tell) to upscale. Just an added note - the founders of Bowlmor are supposedly personally managing this house and the other I mentioned whereas "AMF" is still managing the rest of the portfolio. I'm just seriously disappointed (and a bit confused as to how) that they would choose to not honor the contracts in place for the leagues and toss us all out with about 3 weeks left before the winter season starts.
