I'm convinced, lineage is arbitrary, as to what the league can afford.
Monday Mens: Fee is $25 and lineage is $12.50
Thurs Open, over 185 avg: Fee is $20 and Lineage is $10.50
Sunday Practice league: Fee is $10 and you get (3) 3-game passes
Sat couples: Fee is $22 and lineage is $11.50
My other House,
Thurs Open, over 185 avg: Fee is $22 and lineage is $9.50
My Monday from last year, (this house also pays sanction fees for league bowlers)
Fee was $20 and lineage was $9.50
It's obvious that a bowler can shop for the best price to bowl league, and also get the highest amount of his payment into the prize fund.
There is very little difference in house costs per league. but, it's obvious, a 5-man team returns more to the house then a 3-man team does, with the same cost to the Center.
In the competitive leagues here, the league that has the highest prize fund is getting more of the better bowlers. And, the House benefits from more bowlers
