Welcome to the new saskbowl.com. Many changes have been made to give the site a refreshed look and some added features. Some of these new features include:
- New Layout– As you can already see the layout and look of the site has been refreshed. Look around to find all the same information that was on the “old” saskbowl.com.
- Tournaments have been organized under the organization that they are run by. Example: Great Western Open is under S5PBA, National Classified is under Bowl Sask and all 10-Pin tournaments are under SPTBA.
- Money tournaments and Youth tournaments are on the Tournaments page.
- The Calendar page will be updated as soon as the 2012-2013 Schedule of Events is finalized.
- Tag Cloud – On the right side of every page there will be a Tag Cloud. This will show the topics involved with each News Post. The bigger the Tag, the more it has been used.
- Follow the Bowling Federation of Saskatchewan on Twitter (twitter.com/saskbowl).
- There is now the option of tweeting each news story or event on Twitter to your followers.
- Also on the right side of each page is a Twitter Feed showing any tweet involving 5-Pin Bowling.

- At the bottom-middle of each page is the Archived News Posts based on the month of posting.
- Located at the bottom-right side of every page is a Search Box to search for any events, news, forms, etc

Hope everyone enjoys the new saskbowl.com, and thanks to the Bowling Federation of Saskatchewan for providing me this opportunity!
