40 plus weeks ago, our league and another league combined (it mutually benefited everybody), anyway, the teams don't socialize very well, and the league we combined with aren't overly friendly (not all teams), way too serious, and theres not the same warm fuzzy feeling..

As a co president(of my old league) I informed the "new" president of the combined leagues we want to go back to our old league, and gave reasons.. He was angry, fair enough, I explained very calmly why, and now with only 2 weeks left, our centre management does not want to create smaller leagues (I understand), however both our leagues which were only 7 teams in both leagues are long term bowlers.. The president said basically stay with us, or bowl phantom leagues as centre aren't opening up new leagues... I have since spoken to management there, and as per usual, have not heard anything back, manager is checking with the regional manager..The promised phone call never came my way (again great customer service from AMF)

Any tips on how I can approach this? Are there any suggestions on how to get our old league back and running?

All thoughts appreciated.

Is switching to another center an option? How about divisions within the league?

I'm with Hammer - find a center that wants you. I don't know where you're located, but that would be my approach.

My league has changes centers several times and we've talked about moving again. . . it's all about the center's treatment of you.

Hey guys, yeah swapping to another night doesn't suit many of us due to work and family commitments, nor does spending another 30 minutes to get to the next nearest centre appeal to us either..

The centre's treatment, is generally rather disappointing as a rule, their agenda is not to have too small leagues, but we can start with 6 duos team, with a another 1 or 2 teams joining.. We are a Mon second shift league here, so numbers are never going to be huge..There is the room to accomodate, but the centre don't seem particularly interested..

Any ideas, as I am waiting to get the yes/no about whether we can have our old league back. I would love to offer some suggestions/alternatives to them.
