FRANK Peniguel has just a few months to get his name in the Guinness Book of World Records for playing at as many Australian bowling clubs in Australia as possible in a year, including Euroa.

Mr Peniguel was in Euroa recently when he just had three months remaining to get his name in the record books.

By the time he arrived in Euroa, he had played at 504 clubs with more on his list today.

Mr Peniguel said Bowling Australia lost 16 per cent of bowlers over the age of 70 every year.

“That is a surprising statistic,” he said.

“I wanted to get them to replace ourselves before we depart this world.”
