Hi

Some time ago I blundered across a website where you could enter the detials
of all the balls you owned, and share your entries so as others could see
what you had. Odd, but true.

I registered all my gear but have now sold a couple of balls and acquired
another. Snag is I can't remember the name of the site. Anyone got any ideas
as to what the hell I'm on about and the name of the site in question?

Thanks.

Given the preponderance of DIGITAL CAMERAS these days (especially in
CELL PHONES), it's no big deal to snap THREE pix of each ball: one
showing the MAKE (i.e. "Brunswick"), one showing the MODEL (i.e. "Total
Inferno") and the other one showing the BALL SERIAL NUMBER. Make sure
the logos and numbers are LEGIBLE - if necessary get a
contrasting-color paint stick at your local Hardware Store and fill-in
the grooves to make these things visible to the camera. You might even
want to get some "paint fixer" and apply it to the applied paint to
ensure the filled grooves stay filled. :)

Save the pix to a floppy disk or CD-ROM (identify the files
accordingly!) and file it away (where you can find it later, of course!
;) ). If/when necessary, you can boot up that disk and make printouts
for visual confirmation of ownership, etc.

Don't forget you can save them to Flash Drives too. :)
They're so easy I don't use the other drives very often any more.

What's the point of registering bowling balls?

If someone steals your ball from your locker or your bag you can identify it
as yours. It does happen, you know? :(
