The Zone Manager held a meeting with a few bowlers, who also happen to be officers of leagues last year. The purpose was to understand objections with the new ownership.
the largest complaint was the lineage being charged. This has caused teams and a couple of leagues to switch centers.
the second was bar pricing and food. It appears that the prices are exhorbitant, and the quality is poor.
third was inconsistency in the weekly shot. Oilers were down alot and not working the same from week to week.
lastly, was lane break downs. Lane 40 hasn't worked all year and now, lanes 31-2 are not available for leagues. the house has operated without a laneman for months, borrowing one from another nearby house. We recently got a new one, but he splits his time among 3 houses in the area. And, each house has different machines that requires training on each.
I remember an old Zone house, that has since closed, who hired a new laneman that was untrained on their machines. He was called to repair a problem, and in doing so, tried with the knowledge he had. The rack mechanism came down on his arm and snapped the bone in half. He was on leave for months. And, when he returned, he was terminated.
