# Thread: A New Record for People Who Use Sip-and-Puff Wheelchairs

1. ## A New Record for People Who Use Sip-and-Puff Wheelchairs

Bill Miller's 224 and 15th 200 Game -- and 585 Series

At our Central Florida Quad Squad Bowling outing on January 28th, I bowled my highest score to date -- a 224 -- which is a new record for wheelchair users who operate their chairs by sip-and-puff (mouth control). I also bowled my highest series of three games -- 179, 182, and 224 for a 585 series -- and the 224 was my 15th game of 200 or better.

Many people have bowled that well before -- but I happen to be a C1-2 quadriplegic who is paralyzed from my neck down and ventilator dependent. And using an IKAN Bowler (which is legit because it's sanctioned by the USBC) I've now had a 200, four 201s, two 202s, a 203, 205, 206, 210, 212, 221, 223 and 224.

Here's the link to my scoresheet and commentary:

I'm just trying to show what is possible.

God bless all!

That's impressive Bill. I think you have a 300 in you! It's only 12 strikes in a row. I know easier said than done.

By my math, where you bowled a 224, your string of 15 attempts was: 9,0,X,9,1,X,9,0,X,X,X,X,X,X,7. Replace those 3 9s and one 7 with Xs and you're there. You got 8 strikes! I bowled a ton as an AB and never got more than 5 in one game. Keep at it you're closer than you think (and as far away as it seems). Great job!
