The Madison County Bowling Association’s eighth annual Turkey Shootout attracted a field of 44 bowlers on Sunday who enjoyed the 3-6-9 and no-tap formats.
Bowlers received free strikes in the third, sixth and ninth frames and nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counted as a strike.
Glenn Masters (1,106) and John Hickam (1,090) recorded the best four-game totals for the men, while the high women’s scores were 905 by Beverly Shearer and 856 by Narita Rose. These four bowlers were awarded $30 gift cards.
Masters, Hickam and Gary Holtzclaw each rolled 300 games with the aid of the enhanced scoring system.
Bowlers received a ticket for each “turkey” bowled — three consecutive strikes. These tickets were entered into a drawing after the finish of the tourney. Eight tickets were drawn and the lucky ticket holders each received $30 gift cards.
Gary Holtzclaw, Miranda Reffett, Ron Roberts, Brandon
Simpson, Jamie Sowder, Jan Stepp, Luke Sullivan and Fred Tilsley held the winning tickets.
The next MCBA event will be the annual Christmas tourney on Dec. 15.
