You may not be perfect but, you can bowl a perfect game. Sunday at the Moose Lodge Zanesville USBC Men and Women’s Bowling Association honorers great bowlers and those who have given back to the sport.

The evening included, dinner, cake, inductions and mingling with friends.

"It is a great honor for us to honor those who have given service to bowling and have given service to ether bowling boards or youth league or have had great accomplishments in bowling like 300," said Shelly Bennett.

Dale Goins was inducted into the hall of fame in 1977 for his efforts in supporting bowling. He feels it is important to support youth bowling. Allie Clark was another bowler in attendance. Both men have seen changes in the sport.

"It has evolved greatly especially in the last 20 years with the new equipment and the scientific part of the game of bowling" said Clark.

Most hall of fame inductees have been bowling for over 20 years.
