Well golf is under a very similar attack.

The property is being eyeballed by developers for housing thumbsdown
Property taxes are oppressive. thumbsdown
The "Green tree huge-rs" do not like the herbicides and pesticides. thumbsdown
So greens fees go up and number players go down. thumbsdown
But as long as we have smart phones, you can always play "candy crush" thumbsup

I bowled at Bowlium Lanes in Montclair, CA for the first time last night. Great old house with retro look. It's not in the best part of town but it's still up and running with 32 lanes, a Pro Shop, bar and a restaurant (not so good food, bleah).

I used to take students there (I work up in Claremont) and used to hook my white-dot off the lane! LOL

Evidently, according to a friend, they have really upped their game lately.

It's been over 40 years since I had worms in my peaches. Now I get earwigs in lettuce, and bugs in potatoes.

Give me the pesticides any day. I won't do organic, sorry.

mmalsed: Do you bowl any of the tournament clubs such as ABT or ABTA (now xframe)? Maybe we can hook up and bowl a squad with a beer or two?

If you decide to try one, keep in mind that ABT goes with THS and ABTA (now xframe) lays down sport patterns.
