I don't know how many of the posters to alt.sport.bowling also subscribe to
Bowling Digest Magazine, but it is being discontinued.
Yesterday, I received a copy of Century Publishing's magazine,
TravelAmerica, which included a note regarding the suspension of publishing
of Bowling Digest Magazine. The note indicated that I could have the
remainder of my subscription filled with TravelAmerica or with Baseball or
Football Digest Magazines or with Cruise Travel Magazine.

I have been a subscriber to Bowling Digest since its inception in the early
1980's and am sorry to see it be discontinued. However, I feel that I should
be able to get a refund on my unused portion of my subscription rather than
having to subscribe to a different magazine in which I am not interested.

If anyone else here feels the same, please e-mail the Customer Service
Department of Century Publishing at cs@centurysports.net and let them know.
I just sent them one.

I had ordered the "Bowler's Digest" through Publisher's Clearing House
for about $5 or $6 a year during their sales promotions. I was shocked
to find out they wanted $30 a year to renew. I waited for another
Publisher's Clearing House promotion and renewed for about $5 or $6 a
year. That was when they had 6 issued a year. They changed to 4 issued
a year (4 seasons), last year, but the price was still $30 a year to
renew. I thought something was "going on" when they kept sending me
renewal offerings for 3 years at $90.

On another note "Bowling This Month" has 12 issues a year for $30 and 24
issues for 2 year at $50. This magazine seems to be a better buy for
the money. I get hand-me-down issues from one of my team mates so I get
them for free.

Thanks. I had just subscribed for myself and a second subscription
for my (foster) son. I am not at all interested in spectator sports.
Even in my 50s, I would much rather be active than sit and watch
someone else play a game.
I will look for "Bowling This Month".

Good luck.

I sent an email to the publishing company and received a letter back stating I
could either have a cash refund or, which I accepted since we subscribe to
every year, the Bowlers Journal as a substitute.

I have been a subscriber to Bowling Digest as well. I also received
the similar notice and the same magazine. Since I also am a fan of
Baseball, I told them to send me baseball Digest instead. I always
enjoyed that magazine.

BTW, does anyone recommend any other bowling magazines? Thanks in
advance.

BTM is the place to be.

I'd be happy if my local newspaper would just print stuff about bowling. It is
a Gannet piece of fecal matter. A PBA tournament was held at Oases Lanes in El
Paso and not one word here less than a spit distance from El Paso was printed.

Luckily for me I did see it on cable TV.

I've been a subscriber to Bowling This Month since the first few editions. A
friend writes "Torgy's Tip" and clued me in to what they were writing. The
writers are some of the best in their area of expertise. It has so much good
stuff I find myself re-reading articles from years before.

"Bowling This Month" is a great magazine, but its articles are geared more
towards Pro Shoperators and Coaches (i.e. very "deep" and "technical").
However, if you take the time to really READ/STUDY (not just skim, etc.) the
articles, you'll be amazed at their content! :)
