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?

15lb Morich DestroyR, Mania, Perpetual Motion, Craze, Frenzy, Mojave
15lb Radical Yeti
15lb Brunswick Slingshot, Avalanche Urethane

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.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em

This is a tangible way of thanking and a potential conversation starter.

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:

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em

From the topic -
Easy way to share the benefits of BowlingChat.
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11320" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

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.
