December 2007 - Gary Brown bowls Sanctioned 300 at Galaxy Lanes in Blairsville, Georgia

Gary Brown recently bowled a perfect game of 300 at Galaxy Bowling Lanes in Union County. The sanctioned 300 game was bowled in a normal USBC (United States Bowling Congress) certified league and is the 2 nd sanctioned 300 score in 14 years to take place at this bowling lane.

Brown, a resident of Murphy, North Carolina , says, "Jim McCreary got me started bowling six years ago. This is my first time bowling a 300 and I'll probably be sleeping with my 300 game award pin tonight!" Brown, who carries a 191 average adds, "I want to dedicate this award pin to my dad, Bob Brown of Murphy, and to Mayor Dan Nichols of Young Harris."

Night Manager Cherrie Bellassai presented Gary Brown with his shiny new award pin. A 300 ring will be awarded to Brown in the near future. USBC officials will be visiting Galaxy Bowling to do a lane certification and the ring is scheduled to be awarded at that time.

Lane certifications help maintain standard bowling conditions. Lanes are checked and measured each season to assure equipment meets specifications. Pins, automatic pin setting machines, scoring devices, and other equipment undergo thorough and lengthy testing before receiving approval for use in USBC sanctioned league or tournament competition.

Congratulations go to Gary Brown for his accomplishment of bowling a perfect score.
