One Free Game a Day June-August

Lake Forest, Ill., May 10, 2012 - Every day this summer students age 18 and younger can bowl one free game at all Brunswick Zone and Brunswick Zone XL centers located around the country and in Canada.

The daily free games are available from June 1 through Aug. 31, whenever centers are open and lanes are available. Shoe rental is not included.

To claim their free games, students simply need a Student Ball Pass from Brunswick, which can be picked up at any Brunswick center or downloaded from the Brunswick Bonus Zone, In addition, more than 2 million passes are being distributed through local schools that have teamed up with Brunswick to help distribute the passes.

The free bowling Student Ball Pass is just one way Brunswick recognizes students. Through Brunswick's Making the Grade program, students can also earn a free game for every "A" on their current report card. And, free Family Funtastic Value Packages, including two hours of free bowling for up to six people, shoe rental and a pitcher of pop, await students with perfect attendance.
