Bowling is a great sport that doesn't need any gimmicks. I wish people
would leave their ideas at improving the game at home

Unfortunately, some of these owners, and I think it is more corporate places, feel the need to come up with gimmicks.  The string bowling is absolutely idiotic.  I would never bowl in a place that has that.  But of course, they are not catering to the regular league/tournament bowlers!

If a center has or converts to string pinsetters, they won't ever see me.
