  • survey.....

    Hi fellow wrenchers! Just wondering where everyone is from,does'nt matter if you have A-2; AMF; GS; Mendes.Just trying to find out where you are all located.Me...Illinois.
    Say...maybe someday we can have our own little convention of mechanics in a place we can all get to.Hmmmm..that would be cool!

            Sure is nice to see you guys here! I also think(and at times thats scarey...lol)that a mechanics convention would be of great use for us all,not a school persay but where we can get together with our ideas,etc.,but who/whom would be willing to sponsor such an event?Just my thoughts.

              The idea of a convention to swap stories and ideas is great!!! Perhaps the boys in Muskegon (Brunswick/DBA/Quality/Perry-Austin) could be persuaded into holding such an event.If not,maybe we could start a national organization of our own. As far as finding out where everybody is from and their interests, just click on their bio information at the top of their posting.

                  I had thoughts of a Bowl-Tech party / meeting one year at Bowl-Expo. maybe we could get a couple of companies to sponsor it. a bit too late to get it going this year but maybe next year.

                  Just a thought.

                      Mike, Bowl-expo would be a great time for a Bowl-tech meeting of the minds. Most owners and managers will be making plans to attend and I would think it would be a simple matter to get them to allow maintenance staff to go along as long as we could show a benifit for the center. This would mean some sort of semminar or class but it would not have to be an all day affair. I cannot speak for everyone out there, but some "fun" activity should be included. Keep up the good work on the site

                        Billman:
                        I can think of no better reason to attend conventions than to gain knowledge. In the 60s and 70s most conventions had seminars for distribution of mechanical knowledge, without them turning into sales conferences. Alas, the bottom lines get in the way. But with this forum, and the powerful influence it is contributing to all aspects of bowling maintanence, and our ability to instantly discuss products amongst ourselves, one would think the talking heads will take notice, and once again provide us with opportunities for an exchange of information beneficial to all.
                        Just my thoughts
