First Female Shoots 300 at East Hampton Bowl

In the history of East Hampton Bowl, no woman bowler has fared so well.

East Hampton Bowl has been open since the '60s and it finally was blessed with it's first perfect game by a female bowler.  Dot Grossman shot 12 perfect strikes in a row during the Monday night league.  The league is 9 pin tap but all of Dot's strikes were natural and real.  This was her first perfect game and she has been bowling for 35 years.  As her husband, I couldn't be more proud of her, it's been a longtime coming!!  GOOD ROLLING DOT!!

Congrats!! But I believe it was done in the early seventies more then once by a few different wonderful women from Wainscott! Check the Archieves Further!!

The owner, Craig Patterson, said it was never accomplished previously. He has owned the center since 1977.

I check out the bowling alley and found no indication of the carnage.. There was rumor of a lady who "BOWLED" a perfect game. It was obvious no weapons were involved and the only things injured were the pins and a few male egos. Thanks, Patch for allowing me the chance to provide a bit of humor at your expense.

I was told by my wife that back in the day Fanny Gardiner bowled a 300 game. That's what I was told?
