    I feel bad for the pro shops that will be inundated with people expecting next day service on plugged balance/weight holes. Bowlers have had 2 years to get it taken care of and there should be very few left at this point.

    At $10-$15 per ball, it is a chance for a quick pop in revenue which is always good. But if it means you have 20-30 balls sitting on the workbench it can be a little frustrating.

    Our PSO has announced it a few times and said he will do it for cost for all of his customers. I have never had a balance hole so nothing to do for me

    I had both of mine that had holes taken care of before league started last year. No one will ever accuse me of waiting till the last minute...

    Our local center said they have no plans to remind anyone of the rule or worry about enforcing it. They did say the pro shop currently has 20-30 balls queued up to have holes filled, so people seem to be aware of the rule.
