Great question & concern.
For our industry here in Wisconsin, there isn't really an issue as we have very few bowling centers of the demographic that acquisition will impact membership.
It is, however, a very big issue to other state associations with a large concentration of larger centers owned by big companies. This is because of how our national association (Bowling Proprietors' Association of America) handles large corporate ("chain") centers. I know my colleague in Illinois has struggled with this issue over the past couple of years.
Probably too much to try to explain here, but I'd be happy to have a phone conversation if you would like to give me a call. (Or maybe we can catch up and discuss at the upcoming Innovation Summit in Madison.)
