If you, or a designer can import that in to a Vector graphics application, you should be able to make a version of it that scales well, without distorting. At least, I think you can. Designers? Input here?

Post subject:  Re: Rate! Donate! Post our link! Help our cause!

What you could think about is asking anyone who receives a layout/grip fit etc, to make a donation and anyone getting in next years tournament has to make a donation.

Get people to think about the infomation/education they're getting here like a subscription for a bowling magazine...

also give an indication on how you're doing.

If you would like to send a check, I can accept that and deposit to the account which the hosting funds are withdrawn.
Just PM me for my address.

Thanks.

Please show support and help publicize this forum by proudly wearing a BowlingChat polo shirt.
This is a tangible way of thanking and a potential conversation starter.
This forum is like The PBS of bowling.
We continue to get free analysis and education; you can help boost the candle power of this bowling lighthouse!

How much value has this forum added to your game or business?
There have been over 80,000 posts to this forum.
Think about how many might have helped you then divide that number into the price of the shirt.
Does this forum give you more value than your USBC dues?

This is a personal request regarding Youtube videos.

I'd like to suggest that when someone posts a Youtube link, that they include the text title of the link on Youtube. This way one can search for the link via the text title on youtube.
Conside that if you were to use a prefixing scheme, that one could call them up in aggregate when directly on Youtube per se. This also allows a way of viewing a bowlers history or progress.
Of course it's not fool proof, but one can construct fairly unique prefixing schemes.
What do you think??

By prefixing scheme I mean something like "USBC Masters" or Joe Bowler

For Example:

Dave Husted - USBC Hall of Fame Class of 2012

From the topic -
Easy way to share the benefits of BowlingChat.
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11320

An easy way to spread the word, help bowlers and the game would be to use the "share option" on your browser.
For example, share by email to yourself, then forward that email to bowlers you know that might benefit from an article.

The example below is using Firefox. Most browsers have a method of sharing links, via email or to a file etc.
