Charles Bright in Sun-Times newspaper

March 10, 2008

Charles Bright, who is deaf and well known in Chicago area, was on the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper today. He placed 5th in Beat The Champions bowling at Oak Forest Bowl and won 13 inch TV/DVD combo for shooting 910. He bowl in Hillside Bowl deaf league on Wednesday night at Hillside, Illinois. You can see his picture on it and his score on the list by clicking the link below. I asked him some questions and he gave me his answers. Apparently he is the first deaf bowler that have placed the top ten in Beat The Champions. I have no idea of the others however if you know of some deafies that have made in it, then please let me know. Many thanks!
