A bowler for 40 years, Ralph Boone of Galax rolled his first 300 game recently at Blue Ridge Lanes.

Keeping score in bowling can be a daunting task for many. On March 18, Ralph Boone needed no help keeping track, from neither pencil and paper nor the automated scoring monitors at Blue Ridge Lanes. Boone knew that 12 strikes equaled a nice, round, magic number.

Boone hadn’t taken a perfect game passt the ninth frame more than just a few times in his four decades in the sport.
