BOWLING: Six men reach 700 at Galaxy

RICHMOND — Six men bowled a 700 series at Galaxy last week led by Tyler Morgan with a 724.

Ollie Gasser (717), Mark Rogers (716), Neil Haggard (715), Brandon Simpson (713) and Shawn Barton (704) also reached this coveted level.

Gasser bowled the high game for the week at 278, which places him fourth on the leaderboard for the season.

Regina Barton rolled the best women’s scores for the week with a 247 game and 623 series.

“Turkey Shoot” scheduled for Sunday

The Madison County Bowling Association is sponsoring its seventh-annual “Turkey Shoot” at 2 p.m. Sunday.

This will be a combination 3-6-9 and no-tap tournament. Bowlers are awarded free strikes in the third, sixth and ninth frames, and nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counts as a strike in no-tap competition.

The entry fee is $15 to bowl four games. All bowlers are eligible. The men and women with the two top scores will each receive a $30 gift card.

Bowlers who roll three strikes in a row (called a turkey) will receive a ticket and be entered into a drawing for eight additional $30 gift cards.

Previously, frozen turkeys were awarded as prizes in this tournament, but it was determined that awarding gift cards which the winners could use to purchase a turkey was more practical.

Everyone is invited to come and bowl in this fun tournament.
