Welcome to the New


Thanks for visiting Bowling This Month's new website.  We're still very hard at work building the site and we aren't quite ready to start our subscription service, but we thought now would be a good time to invite the bowling world inside to take a look around. We still need a couple weeks to finish building the rest of the content and functionality, but we didn't want to wait any longer to start sharing information about the future plans for BTM.  We've added some archived content from recent issues of the print magazine and we're offering unrestricted viewing access to everyone for a … [Read More]

Track Mx10

Track Mx10

The Mx10 is the first in the new “M” series of balls produced by Track marketed towards bowlers with medium rev rates.

Off the Top of My Head – June 1995

It's time again for the Senior Master's. That's the ABC-sponsored event where the powers-that-be in Greendale openly admit that "good" bowlers over the age of fifty have no chance against the elite bowling kids, an admission they refuse to make when it comes to the rank and file. Every year, thousands of over-50 ABC regulars... [Read More]

Off the Top of My Head – May 1995

I grew up Navy. That means that every few months, I moved to a new town in a new state with new friends and a completely new environment. Culture shock for me became the norm, but the thing I never got used to was TV. Everywhere we moved, the shows were different. This was in... [Read More]
