The City of Chicago has passed ordinances banning smoking in Public Places, including restaurants, bars, and bowling alleys, and within 15 feet of doorways on the outside. This has caused a large number of leagues to break-up, lose bowlers or move entirely to the surrounding suburbs. The suburban houses are usually newer and larger. They also have better ventilation systems.
This has been a boon for these houses.
There seems to be a generation gap in this ruling. The younger 20-30 age group, generally doesn't smoke. While the 40-50 age group still does. Then the over 60 group has stopped. This is affecting only one segment of the population, which comprise the majority of bowlers. In most cases, the majority rules, not in bowling.
