This has nothing to do with who they are, it's a business decision to have lanes open when people are wanting them," says Frank. "There's a couple people in the Friday night league who are trying to sabotage this."
The Gay and Lesbian Bowling League was offered another night of the week, like Tuesday or Wednesday, but declined.
