Stardust III in Dyer will host a unique King of the Hill strike shot format at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday. How does it work? There are no spares. Your score each frame is double as long as you hit the head pin. If you strike, that’s 20. But if you miss the head pin, you only get single count (2-4-5-8 leave gets you 12 points but 1-2-4-10 washout is just 6 points). Max score is 200 per game. The cost is $35 with first place paying $600 based on 72 entries. Tourney is open to adults and youth. For more details, call 322-3666 or visit www.bowlstardust.com/KOTHStrikeShot.htm.
