TournReg, a hosting service provider for IGBO bowling tournament online registration systems, is celebrating its first year anniversary. Officially started in April 2012, TournReg became a FREE, volunteer-run, separate entity. We support IGBO tournament committees that need a robust, feature-rich online registration system. Anyone with HTML and Web knowledge can develop a simple registration system for their local bowling tournaments. Our service is designed specifically for those that do not have the web technology know-how to set up their own system. PLUS, our system can import registration data into IGBO-TS upon request.
Our first registration service started as www.tournreg.net. It adapted all previous online registration systems hosted on www.igbo.org, before a recent server move and design change. Today, TournReg.Net ( a.k.a.,TournReg 1.0 ) currently hosts over 30 IGBO tournament online registration systems. It uses a common framework and template system that allows each tournament to have customized input forms, unique event rules, payment processes via PayPal, and an admin dashboard with over 20 data reports.
Technically, the TournReg framework started in 2004 as an online registration system for Dixie Invitational Bowling Tournament.This system improved over the years, and it was used for the IGBO 2008 Annual Bowling Tournament in Atlanta. Shorty afterwards the templates and databases were offered to other bowling tournaments as a free service.
Today the TournReg system celebrates its “official” first-year anniversary by introducing new online presence that will expand our service.
