The Mon Nite League I bowled in had 32 teams and is now down to 22. I know of 3 teams leaving in the Fall. 2 are joining my league at a privately owned center.

The Thurs Nite League, was a 185+ handicapped trio league. 18 teams when I bowled, now 14. Only, because they have allowed lower average bowlers to enter. this hurts, because there is a low handicap of 170. So anyone with lower average only gets a cap based on 170. But, the house will sign up anyone.

There are 2 main reasons for bowlers leaving. 1. The lineage for league bowling is now higher then the highest open bowling rates. A bowler can save $4-5 by moving to another center, or pay the same rate and that differrence goes to the prize fund.

The second issue has been with the lane conditions. It is rare that the lanes are oiled the same 2 weeks in a row. There is NO laneman to fix the machine when its off or pads worn. Counter people have been trained to run the machine. It has been common, that the lane oiler has broken down, and leagues have gone for weeks without the lanes being oiled.
