Five 300 games were bowled at Country Club Lanes on Pulaski Highway last week.

Barron Parker bowled a perfect game in the Starfires League; Brian Thacker and Jim Via rolled theirs in the Minors League; John Fantini got his in the Baltimore Men's Classic Scratch League; and Jeff Doll came through in the Men's Handicap League.

Thacker rolled a 743 set and John Tayman had a 742 set, Larry Detweiler 756, Fred Strawderm 751, Scott Poe 724, Jim Johnson 705, Luther Johnson 712, Joe Barnhardt 723, James Barnhardt 716, Brian Bever 704 and Robbie Lemerise 704, all in the Men's Classic Scratch League.


David Blizzard of Baltimore and Tim Thorton of Lanham have won trips to Tampa, Fla., and today's Super Bowl for winning the Fair Lanes Footbowl Tournament.

The contest consisted of two frames in which the contestants tossed a football 50 feet toward the pins. The ball had to hit the pins on the fly.

Blizzard, 18, scored 14, which tied him with Gregory Stanbach of Baltimore. In a two-frame roll-off, Blizzard, a student at Cardinal Gibbons High School, edged Stanbach, 11-9. Thorton, 31, won the Washington-area top prize with 14 pins.
