What I've noticed to is most bowling alleys don't want you to hang around after bowling...they
want you to bowl your 3 games and get the hell out of the way.Where I used to bowl before
they shut everyone knew each other and the leagues were a bit of a social gathering as well.
Not any longer.

Bowlers may not buy as many cars as rich people. Bowlers may not spend as much on electronics. Bowlers may not ship and receive as many packages as rich people. What do bowlers (a good chunk of them anyway) spend more on than rich people? Beer. They can't even get them to buy commercial time.

One group drinks at the COUNTRY CLUB the other the corner tavern.  One eats $6 burgers at the bowling alley the other eats $150 steaks at the CLUB.

I used to belong to and bowl at the Detroit Athletic Club.....and the amount of drinking and bowling there was outrageous.  There were some very good bowlers there as well.  It's been over 20 years since I was a member.  I left because once I became 30 years old, my monthly dues were jacked up by more than double.  Even though everyone knew who I was, I wasn't getting any business from it...so my firm decided they were not going to make the investment any further.  They did have an end of the year club championship...where you bowled an 8 game qualifier.  They took the top 5 from that, and you bowled stepladder finals.  I qualified 2nd.  Won my first match to get to the title game....needed a double in the 10th to lock out my opponent, got the first one, and in the 11th left a ringing solid 7, and I lost by 4 pins.  I left there, and never set foot in the place again.
