Hey everyone, i haven't posted here in a while, but I do scan and read a lot. But with this PBC posting I have to put in my 2 cents worth. We bowled 1 and sometimes 2 leagues a week, We bowled there for about 14 years .and saw several manager turn overs, But the last turn over was bad for the business and some of us saw it coming.
Unless you were a reg. there you didn't see and hear most of what there is to the story. I was not going to post on this but felt I needed to , due to them saying DON"T go to S&S. Stars and Strikes had nothing to do with them closing , I did leave PBC and went to S&S about 5 years ago, They put themselves out of business, they had good leagues and people bowling there, Monday Nights they had 22 teams, Wed. nights they had 18 teams and that is every week paying them money and that don't count all the youth bowlers on Sat. mornings and tournament money , open bowling and more.. They didn't manage it and that happens. BUT not one time did they think about all those people that did come there, THEY had to know this was coming , BUT they let it happen without letting people know to get all their bowling equipment out, 1 has his wheelcahir locked up in there. And the cars some saw in the parking lot yesterday were league bowlers for Wed. night trying to decide on what to do. They lost some money, as did the other leagues. They had there normal league Monday Night and did not have the curtosity to let them know , so now they have lost out as well,
If you don't like S&S that is your choice, I do ,they have and show respect for those bowling there . Yes sometimes it is a little loud but people take their kids there as well . As far a leagues it's not that way . Yes they do serve alcohol but so did PBC so don't knock them for that.
I guess I'm just trying to say that it is their own fault that the doors were pad locked , and don't blame anyone but themselves for it
Sorry for the long post , but there is always more to the story than meets the eye and ears.
I hope everyone has a blessed weekend and Easter.
