Following the death of Mark Voight, owner of Community Bowling Centers, the bowling alleys were all sold to Spins Bowl.  The bowling centers involved are Bowl One, Century Bowl, Plum Hollow, Skore Lanes, Sterling Lanes and Super Bowl.  It is my understanding that Spins Bowl's model is that of the modern bowling center, where they don't really cater to leagues.  They are going after the once or twice a year bowlers who drinks, eats, and loves to do cosmic bowling.  I also understand that all the pro shops in these centers are being closed down as well.  

Looking at their main website, their motto is:  "Welcome to Spins Bowl!  Our entertainment centers offer state of the art bowling, massive redemption arcadelaser tag arenas, craft beer, great burgers, salads, and your favorite pizza! Whether you are here to bowl a couple games or just enjoying a delicious meal, Spins Bowl has got you covered. Each destination delivers a unique and fun experience that families and friends will come for time and time again."

In Detroit, the website is:

That's funny because I've known about this for over a month. I went and looked at all of the websites for the other centers in other states that Spins Bowl owns. You know what, they all were touting their leagues and most of them had a lot of leagues. Spins Bowl does not appear to be anti-league from what I see. I also haven't heard of one pro shop being told to exit the building.
Fall Leagues: Monday - Five Star Lanes, Tuesday  & Thursday - Astro Lanes.
Balls: Motiv Trident Abyss, Motiv Forge Fire, Motiv Hydra & Motiv Hyper Sniper. All made in the USA.

Totally forgot to post about this. We were told last month at our once a month league out of the blue. So far nothing changes. Bowl One is running at about 90-95% fill rate with leagues during prime time. Not sure about the other centers. Just a good example of how many lanes a good center needs to stay successful these days.
