Hello, I am a new member from Scranton, PA and found this forum when looking for places to ask questions about a growing problem that has finally hit home for me.

A local center that I bowl two leagues in is probably closing and getting demolished at the end of the season. I am looking to connect with people who have gone through this and ask for advice on how to proceed and keep your league intact through this transition to a new center.

I am President of a scratch league and Vice-President of a church men's league in this house and both have entrusted me with this task. I know the basic common sense stuff of checking USBC bylaws and shopping around where possible, but the dealing with the people part and being as diplomatic as possible with the bowler is probably going to be a bigger challenge to try to keep the leagues more or less intact.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
Joe R.
