The BM Bowling spreadsheet was created as a tool for bowlers and bowling teams to track performance statistics. It is available free of charge, but voluntary donations are accepted. To donate, click on the Paypal link on the top right of this page. This is the third iteration of the spreadsheet. It can accommodate virtually any number of bowlers and games.
I try to accommodate requests made by commenters to this blog. The revisions made in v. 2.1 are largely due to such requests, and I am open to making more changes, so feel free to chime in. In this post, I only describe updates made in the new version. For basic information on the spreadsheet and its capabilities, see these two posts:
Split Marking and Statistics- The spreadsheet can now mark and count splits for each bowler and for the team as a whole. Split statistics are kept by series. In the screen shot below, splits are marked by frames highlighted in green.
Individual and Team Handicapped Game Scores- In prior versions, handicapped scores were only calculated for series. I have now added handicapped scores to individual games. In the screen shot below, the blue arrows indicate where handicapped game scores are now shown. Beneath each game, the spreadsheet also calculates the total team scratch and handicapped scores for that game.
To get version 2.1, just right click on the link that follows, and choose "Save Link as". Then, download the spreadsheet to your computer. Download link: BM Bowling spreadsheet v.2.1
This is the bowling blog for charismatic, astute, and discriminating bowlers. The BM Report began as a newsletter for a Laramie, Wyoming bowling team, the Bowl Movements. We are, by every measure, not particularly skilled at bowling. Mediocrity in bowling is not our goal, but sadly it is the state of our team. For three seasons, we found ourselves positioned in the lower half of the league standings. Last season, we barely crested the top half. Our Monday night venue is the Bernaski Memorial League at the Laramie Lanes. At this point, you might be asking yourself why a subpar bowling team in Laramie needs a blog. Like the great conundrums of philosophy (god, morality, epistemology, etc.), there is no good answer to this question.
