Seventy one year old Gord Butler bowls Perfect Game
February 24th 2012


 Gord Butler records his first perfect game

          Seventy one year old Gord Butler is the latest bowler to achieve perfection as he rolled his first perfect game to take the high single honours in Sarnia 10 - Pin bowling action this week. He rolled twelve solid pocket strikes and was 112 pins over his average. He accomplished the feat in the Monday Night Menís League at Marcin Bowl. The right handed low speed bowler was participating in his second game on lanes 25 & 26 and finished the night with a 705 triple. Butler was a 5-pin bowler for ten years in his younger life but gave up bowling for twenty years. When he retired sixteen years ago, he was encouraged by a friend to join the Retirees 10 Ė Pin bowling league and the rest is history.
