I think the house is right.

You or I or We may not like it, but its the truth. Keep in mind that that percentage of bowlers that feel as you do about the game is minimal and to the houses' perspective NEGLIGABLE.

They need to keep the doors open and this last year has been a struggle to say the least. They cannot keep the doors open by catering to a slight percentage of customers. No operation can.

I think the best you can hope for is a center thriving off its house shot putting down a PBA shot for a league or special occasion. But you need a thriving center first. I don't think you can have it the other way around, unless you are in a specialized location of non compete for customers. Even then you might find customers that just opt to not bowl rather then travel further to an easier house or continue in the difficult one.
