In a conversation with QubicaAMF's Director, International Relations & Sports Development, Roger Creamer shares, "Bowlers have slowly come around to the concept of string pinspotters, and typically do not even notice the difference compared to free-fall pinspotters. With more and more adoption of centers converting to TMS String Pinspotters, we expect to see many more 300 games during sanctioned tournaments."

Located just across the road from the University of Canberra, this center offers tournament play, open play for families and young adults, birthday parties and corporate events.  With the new TMS String Pinspotters,Zone Bowling Belconnen is confident to support their entertainment business as well as cater to the sports focused enthusiast such as Robert Townsend.  Considering its location, those string machines should get plenty of use and it won't be the last 300 game recorded on the TMS String Pinspotters.
