After then-12-year-old Hunter Machin bowled a perfect 300 game earlier this year, he could have left the sport knowing he had accomplished a feat that is difficult even for professional bowlers. But it appears he is not done yet. Now 13, Hunter has bowled an 800 series, something bowling experts consider much more difficult than a 300. The Dundalk resident bowled games of 269, 289 and 278 for a score of 833 on Nov. 9 at Brunswick Perry Hall Lanes. But Hunter wasn't celebrating right away - he was focused on the fact that he narrowly missed another 300 three times in a row. "He was like, 'I can't believe I didn't get my 300 again,'" his mom, Vickie Machin, said.

At first glance, a Saturday lunchtime bowling league at the Brunswick Normandy Lanes in Ellicott City looks like all the rest. The typical large number of people mill around, laughing and giggling. And there is the usual group that stops to watch as soon as someone prepares to bowl, And there are people who are there for fun and not much else. The only difference in this league is those who are part of it. Pinbusters is a recreation bowling league for adults with special needs or disabilities that runs three times a year in eight-week sessions.

Tired of that same old bowling league format? While you're thinking of signing up for fall bowling leagues, consider the match point system of scoring.Match point scoring adds an element of individual competition to team bowling that can make for more interesting team matches.In your traditional bowling league, the team with the most pins for each game wins one point. With another point awarded for total pins for three games, there's a possible four points to be won on a given night.In the match point system, each bowler on a team is paired against a bowler on the other team.

Climb down the stairs past the neon blue and canary yellow walls and you'll find a slice of hon heaven. Short, squat pins fly here and there as midget balls glide along the wooden boards. But it's not just duckpin bowling, the game invented in Baltimore in 1900, that most of the clientele seek at Taylor's Stoneleigh Duckpin Bowling Center. They're drawn by the down-home, slap-on-the-back flavor of the 52-year-old alley. What makes the place unique, patrons say, is that this haven for a working-class game is in the middle of a Baltimore County neighborhood better known for its soccer moms, bagel shops and tree-lined roads.

All in wheelchairs. A convoy of them. They roll into the Perry Hall Bowling Lanes and make their way to the starting lines -- men and women of varied ages, ethnic backgrounds and diverse financial circumstances but beset with a mutual problem -- multiple sclerosis.They take the tenpin ball and, from a sitting position, direct it toward the pins. It will hopefully make contact with the intended target, but not always. Occasionally, it might stop en route with not enough momentum to carry to the end of the alley.

It started with a simple paid advertisement in the Anne Arundel County Sun: MS bowlers seek help.The ad asked for volunteers, drivers, scorekeepers, ball returners, pushers, folks who can devote a little bit of their time to bowlers who need a little help now and then.A lot is behind that simple advertisement.Let's start with multiple sclerosis. MS is a condition marked by hardened tissue in the brain or spinal cord, associated with paralysis and jerking muscle tremor.That description fits all the members of the Hopeful Wheelers bowling league that meets from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Friday at Severna Park Lanes.
