Hey Erin, thank you for such a quick response!
Man, I was hoping for something a little more positive, but I can't ask for the moon either.
I was thinking after I gathered the pricing info and lane availability, call a special league meeting before bowling and discuss the situation, get a sense of whether they want to disband or move and try to grow at a new center. I know for a fact the church league will want to move and keep their identity as a closed members league only, but the scratch league of course is another animal entirely. I may lose 2-3 teams and pick up 3-4 when I move to the new center, or they may all want to go their separate ways, I guess I'll find that out soon enough.
The center has not officially told leagues they are closing yet, we all read an article today that Walgreens has a "conditional approval" of the city planning commission to go ahead with construction, a rumor that has been swirling for over a year now. But with it being in the paper, that gives a chance to at least be proactive and know ahead of the end of the year what we are going to do.
Thank you again for your input. Hopefully there will be more to come.
