First night of Fall league. And, am I pi$$ed.
We had our meeting last week, and actualy had an argument with the house manager who announced an increase of a quater for lineage. He assumed the league would just increase its fee. Well, it didn't. And we calculated there was an impact of about $5000 over the year of bowling. So, we battled. And, got the manager to concede that the lnes would be in good working condition for the extra fee. He couldn't guarantee that, so a few bowlers threatened to go to another house. The Tues Men's leage was already down to 6 teams, and the House forced themto merge with our 20 teams. We really didn't like that, but went along. but, we didn't go along with the increase.
bottom line, the manager said he would have to cut corners elsewhere.
Well, we found out where he cut. Our regular house pattern of 39 feet was cut short to 34 feet. Now, just how much can be saved with 5 feet short on the oil pattern? This is just rediculous.
Bowlers were complaining all night. The manager's response was, for an additional quarter, he could go back to 39 feet.
Plain Horse $hit. He saw the Tues nite league reduce by half. Well, I guess the Mon will do the same next year.
It's tactis like this that force bowlers away. I guess all this chain wants is te $4.99 per game for cosmic. They couldn't wait til we left before they turned off the lights. Many of us hadn't changed our shoes.
It's not going to be fun.
