Bowling lack of interest claims another one

Looks like the site finally folded.


 Not that anyone was posting to the site the last several years anyway...

I've been a member on there for years. I was just on it yesterday. I believe I was the last one to create a post which was the passing of Mo Pinel. I know Lane #1 was big sponsor to the BBE and when Lane #1 quit, it seems like most lost interest in the BBE site.
The principles of the B.P.O.E. are:
CHARITY, JUSTICE, BROTHERLY LOVE, AND FIDELITY.

The Elks are committed to their mission,
ďSo long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.Ē

For what it's worth, their Facebook site appears to be available.

Used to frequent them quite often.
Hadnít logged in for a while.
Bowling just isnít what it used to be.
Neither is the interest in bowling forums.
Ultimately, I guess, Facebook took over.

It's not unique to bowling. Facebook has killed (or at least damaged) many if not most of the topical websites out there. My car club website still has a bit of traffic, but it's fractional compared to what it was 15 years ago. Now there are a dozen Facebook groups I have to monitor in order to get the same content. And if 3-4 people get hacked off at the group admin, it's easy just to start another Facebook page. New websites, not so much.
