CrownedPrince,

Thanks for clearing that up for him. The Registration even said sign up to be a Track Legion member.

HM.....

YOu can feel it is BS all you want, but apparently they are giving away a free bowling ball everyday. I don't see any other ball company doing that for bowlers.

Ok Hammer Flapper explain the "loyal? part of it ???

Thats what I thought......

Track could have just said:

"Track Legion members"

No need to put "loyal" in there if it didnt have some meaning, huh ?

Your a 'tard anyways, you didnt even read my post....try paying attention before you post..

302efi,

Do you think that since you like Dynothane Equipment that if your name is chosen for the ball-a-day that they won't give you a ball? Is that the issue you are having?

I'm not talking about Registration, I wanna know what Track means with the term, "loyal" ?

....Maybe a certain few hundred "loyal" (read: not random)

As far as other companies doing it, lol

Sure says alot when they gotta GIVE the product away......ROFL

I'm confused Chad, I honestly don't know why you are mad that they are giving away balls to "loyal" members.  Is there something wrong with that?  I don't like track, but I do think it's cool that they are doing that.

THE "LOYAL" PART COULD SIMPLY STAND FOR THE LEGION MEMBERS WHO LOYALLY SIGN IN EVERYDAY FOR THE GIVEAWAY!

And as for this comment......I think it says alot when you support another company's equipment yet sign up for Ball-a-Day Giveaway.
I think it is a really good thing Track is doing. It is advertising and it is exposure.

Goodluck in winning the ball-a-day giveaway in the future.....

C-G ProShop-Carl,

I really need to change my sig,now that Columbia is making Dyno's gear, I'm done with them  

...and I assume Lane #1 as well.

Not mad Shane, just confused with what "Loyal" means, thats all...

Ever wonder why some peoples names got pulled twice ? (even thought they didnt actually get another ball)

Whats the odds that someone would get pulled twice with all the entrys ?

...at those odds, maybe Mustard did shoot all those 900's ?

I don't really like track but I did sign up for the free ball a few times.  If I win a ball, I will drill and throw it.  Who knows, I may like it and buy a few more.  Seems like a good marketing thing for Track.  I'm not sure if they are targeting only "loyal" legion members, or really just trying to convert people into being "loyal".  Either way, it's a good thing.

I've never owned a Track ball prior to today. I never visited their website until I saw the giveaway posted on another website. I entered every day since it started, it's my home page on my browser.

I wouldn't have considered myself 'loyal' to Track until today.

I won the giveaway last Sunday, ball arrived today. It kicks serious tail. I'd easily consider buying my next ball from Track, without question.

Del, the president of Track, called me Wednesday to congratulate me and help with a drilling recommendation.

Today I was at a PBA regional South in Largo, FL at Liberty Lanes and saw Patrick Allen. I ALMOST considered having him autograph my Machine.. almost.. hehe.

My point is, diehard members aren't winning. Anyone who decided to become a Legion Member the day they registered are, and I'm living proof.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

what a douche.

questioning a company that is giving something free away.

and i've never heard of any incident on this forum, that a track ball cracked.

just because columbia owns the right to the company, does not mean they have the same people designing and building there cores and coverstocks.

Go look at the list if winners there are some that to my knowledge have never used a Track ball before or are at least not what you would call a die hard loyal Track user.
Part of the purpose of the giveaway is to get some new people in the mix not just the people that are already loyal. The thought is that when a non Track user wins they will like the ball they get and make future purchases based on that ball. It says a lot about the confidence they have in their product.
If you don't have anything good to say just keep your opinions to yourself. We in here get along very well, never give each other undue grief and we prefer to keep it that way.
