anyone seen this thing?
https://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation ... 14075.html

title of it is "Bowling alley worker asked a large group to calm down. They mobbed him, video shows"

seems that it made national news. that one one reason I hate going to practice. People getting out of control there. I can't even watch the video as the internet is so bad in this hotel.

I usually have to deal with some form of this every time I go. Usually it is a group of people screaming as loud as they can for some reason.

not sure how to delete post, seems this isn't much of a thing. I just yahoo.com "shot at the bowling alley" and there is tons of stuff. This artical above was on the front page of msn so i thought it was something.

the only real problem i have like this is parents not controlling their kids. one time some random kid from 3 lanes down came over and tried to take my ball. and this wasn't an older kid he must of been like 4 years old

I was going up on several occasions and kicked others who run up on my back side trying to bowl on their lane. a lot of this is the desk person using common sense and I tell them about it every time they could put more serious bowlers with kids or parties near each other.

one time I was in mid swing when a little kid fell on the lane in front of me. I told the mom I could have killed her kid by accident and to keep a better eye on them. 0

I thought I was being nice about it then she calls her husband he comes up to the Lanes acting like he wants to fight. Well I'm not one to back down from a fight so I told him he better sit his ass down and listen to what I got to say first.

I had him yelling at her when it was done. then told the manager to train desk personnel how to group bowlers in open play because kids could get hurt and fights could occur.

I still had a good practice session despite all this but, better bowlers should not have to deal with this issue.

then there's the families with little kids usin Ramps where the entire clan gathers up on the foul line and into your approach to video the kid bowling every time it's his turn. talk about slowing down play!

I finally just say pardon me after a couple time of this & say I need more room! then will give the desk person an ear full if they don't have a clue.

if it's crowded I understand but sometimes the load everyone on top of one another with plenty of lanes.
