Bowling Record

Mason man sets unofficial record for bowling

In exchange for three sleepless days and nights and a badly blistered left thumb, a Mason man has set a new unofficial world record for continuous bowling.

Thirty-nine year-old Dave Wilson bowled for 64 hours and 22 minutes at a Warren County bowling alley over the weekend, raising seven thousand dollars for a children's charity. Wilson's endurance mark is seven minutes longer than the previous record for longest tenpin bowling marathon, which was set last September by an Italian man. Officials from Guinness World Records say it likely will take months to certify Wilson's effort.

Wilson says he followed Guinness rules, remaining under constant witnesses' supervision and taking just one 15-minute break every eight hours.
