Pin Station Bowling Center in Newton is going to host 300 athletes from across  the western region for the 2012 Special Olympics bowling tournament Sunday.

A total of more than 1100 athletes and Unified Partners from across the state will compete in the event and of those more than 300 will represent the western portion of the state.  Athletes have trained for a minimum of eight weeks at the local level prior to moving on to this state-level competition.

"We are proud to have atheletes from across western N.C. come to Pin Station as well as to visit Newton," said Pin Station owner Wayne Dellinger.  "I have always been heavily involved in the community and to see 300 competitors support and represent their own communities is rewarding to me."
