This website is the product of an idea. It was brought about by the love of the game, by someone who is not that good at the sport, and was looking for “something else” to do in bowling.
It was started while looking for bowling alleys in various cities that were going to be visited on vacations. Finding easy to access and reliable lane data was an issue. A tool that made this easy was needed. This is when the Bowling Alley Locator was started. It was simulated first as a local tool for my own use, using Xampp, then I decided it could be better worked with on the web.
The calendar was also bourne out of need. Ran in to the same issue when tournament hunting.
The BowlingQuest itself was the perfect excuse to revisit the states. I had been to 48 states when this started and needed only Delaware for the lower 48.
The web site is the outgrowth of that search for bowling alleys and tournaments.
