03 Apr 300, 266, and 234: Night of Glory for Greg Helman
Thursday, March 28, was quite a night for Greg Helman (right), senior pastor of Blue Rock UB church (Waynesboro, Pa.). Greg and his wife, Marty, participate in a bowling league. And Greg was on fire. He bowled a perfect game of 300 in the first game. Then he followed with a 266 game and finally a 234 game. That gave him a total of 800 for the series.
Greg wrote, “The picture is of me celebrating after throwing the last ball of my series. I needed 9 pins to reach 800, and that’s what I got leaving only a 10-pin. This was my first 300 game and 800 series since I started bowling at 12 years of age. Each of these accomplishments has earned me a ring from the USBC, which sanctions our league at ABC West in Mechanicsburg, Pa. Needless to say, I was very excited, and my wife, Marty, got the first hug.”
My wife took that picture without me knowing as she hid behind the other team waiting for me to complete my delivery.
