Bowlers warm up the season with 300s.
Special to The Jewish News

bowlers have been heating up
Dennis Horwitz is a model of
He's bowled four 300 games, three
years apart. Each perfect game was
the third game of his series. And
all the 300s were rolled at Country
Lanes in Farmington Hills while he
was competing in the Brotherhood-
Eddie Jacobson B'nai B'rith League.
Horwitz's first three perfect games
were in 2002, 2005 and 2008. Then
he bowled 182-183-300/665 on Jan.
17, 2011. The 216-average bowler
was frustrated after his first two
games, but not because he was
having an off-night.
"I bowled well, but I didn't have
anything to show for it," he said. "I
told one of my teammates before my
third game that this place owes me."

Perfection Not Enough
Howie Gerenraich has bowled 13
perfect games and six 800 series in
his bowling career. What's tougher?
"An 800 series, by far. Not even
close," he said. "Look at it this way.
Bowling a 300 doesn't ensure an
800 series. You still have to bowl
at least 250 in your other two
games. You have to make the proper
adjustments on the lanes, and make
spares. There's no margin for error."
Gerenraich, 55, added to his 300
and 800 totals recently at 300 Bowl
in Waterford. He bowled 269-300-
248/817 in the Senior Classic Trio
League on Feb. 3, and 277-300-
269/846 in the 3-Man Majors League
on Jan. 13.

Count At Nine
Keith Kingston is
climbing closer to double figures
when it comes to 300 games. He
now has nine after rolling a pair
this season in the University Men's
League at Country Lanes.
Kingston bowled 217-197-300/714
on Nov. 2, and 300-228-193/721 on
Jan. 11. His 10th frame Jan. 11 can
be seen on YouTube at http://strike.
This is the first time Kingston has
bowled more than one perfect game
in a season. He says the thrill of a
300 hasn't gone away.
"No, it hasn't gotten old:' he said.
"What's interesting is sometimes I'm
nervous beyond belief as I get closer
to a 300; and sometimes I'm very
relaxed and focused, like I was [in
January]. You can tell on the video
that I was having a good time."
