Not the way Russ tells it on the PBA message boards.  Interesting info coming from an employee of a very small center who might stand to actually get a little business by spreading misinformation.

First off i jjust tell what iv heard. Second if ur refering to what russ said about another propriotor spreading missinformation that was not glenmore. Try the bowling alley right down the street who has a history of that kind of thing. Anything we told a bowler came from a source like Our Budwiser rep or our Heidelburg rep- (* miller distubtion center *) and we informed then that is where we heard it from.

PS. western closing would not help out glenmore as much as u think, we can only take a team here and there we dont have room for a whole leauge. And even people at western didnt know what was going on ie jimmy lieh or however it spelled was the guy who took care of all of westerns leauges and he left this summer due to lack of information so any damage done to western was more from lack of keeping people informed that missinformation, that y people started talking and hearing this stuff anyway.

Very sorry for jumping to a big conclusion.  Didn't know McDonald was that kind of person.

BTW, saw the new look Glenmore (on the website) and the new installation looks great.  Next time I get home I may have to stop in and roll a few.  

My apologies once again.

First no harm done and yea he is, that's how he gets bowlers he did it to us about 5 years ago when the Horstman's had to sell it and he kept going around telling people were closing. We lost a full leauge and about 3 teams cause of him but he only got like 1 team from us the others went to Harrison.

As for the new installation ???? what new installation we just painted and brightened the place up. We got rid of the Orange bathroom not the only thing that's that shade of orange is the ball returns.

Aren't those synthetics that I saw? Last time I was in there, all wood.

Of course, I haven't been in Glemore since I went to see a taping of the King of Bowling almost 25 years ago.  Packed house and plenty of Hudy Pops flowing pretty early on a Sunday morning.
