8 years ago, a modest plan was put forth and here we are today!

At first it was just Keith and I, but quickly there were others. It has been an amazing ride!

Thanks Keith!

Seems like I've seen this thread before. Is it possible the years just keep clicking by?

This is a great place. A lot of is disagree about a lot, but that only makes the place all the better.

8 years ago today, I started this board.  Time is flying fast!  Thank you to everyone who participates and checks in on a regular basis.  I'm glad to know all of you, it's been a fantastic ride thus far!

Woo hoo....8 years down.  I've almost been here the entire ride.  What's the plan for when we hit double digits in two years? [biggrin]

Happy Anniversary, Keith.  It's an interesting collection of hard core bowlers, who I would say seem to largely be traditionalists about the game.  Certainly nothing wrong with that.

The important things to remember is that Keith has funded this completely on his own. He has never asked for contributions nor has he ever "gone commercial". He has also resisted merging with other bowling websites when he has the opportunity. Because of this, we have enjoyed the intimate family atmosphere that I hope continues for many decades to come.

The only thing that could make it better is double the participation.  Tell your bowling friends.
