Although BowlSpot.com profile information has been available from InsideBowling.com during most of 2012, today BowlSpot.com has been tuned down to just a few informational pages.
BowlSpot.com was created in 2007 from the combination of several bowling websites I was supporting. These included tools for tournaments, coaching, and statistical tracking. I wanted to bring all these items under one site for a better experience and to make supporting them easier. It seems the same situation once again has come upon us with InsideBowling.com.
InsideBowling.com was created in 2010 by Mike Flanagan, also located in St. Louis. Mike approached me looking for technical help to bring some of his ideas to life. We have built a great partnership and have grown to be very busy while projects keep lining up one after another.
Consequently, the amount of projects stacking up has caused BowlSpot and the mobile application iBowlSpot to be more stale than I would like. Furthermore, the need to maintain multiple websites is also a burden as before when BowlSpot.com was created. Therefore we have decided again to merge websites into one, InsideBowling.com.
Going forward, BowlSpot.com will live on, but as a different entity. BowlSpot.com will be the official service provider and backbone for our growing network of bowling websites and web services. This includes the programming, servers, infrastructure, and other technical items. This is great for me because as a programmer and a techie, these are the parts I enjoy the most.
InsideBowling.com has been redesigned to present the BowlSpot information and will continue to grow. At this time, InsideBowling.com adds customer service, tournaments, streaming videos, forums, contests, and more to the suite of tools available from BowlSpot.com.
If you have any problems or issues during this transition period, please feel free to contact usby posting in the technical forum.
