Brunswick Corporation : Brunswick Bowling & Billiards Buys Ace Bowling Center

Lake Forest, Ill., Oct. 22, 2012 - Brunswick Bowling & Billiards, an industry
leader in the bowling and family entertainment segment, today announced that it
has purchased the family-owned Ace Bowling Center in Montgomery, Ala. Effective
immediately, it will be renamed Brunswick Zone.

Built in 2008, the Ace Bowling Center is a spacious family entertainment center
with 38 lanes of bowling, a large game room, billiards, grill, and bar. The
bowling facility will continue to operate as usual as it transitions to the
Brunswick Zone brand.

"Ace is a great bowling center run by a dedicated team of management and
employees," said Jim Fox, president, Brunswick Bowling - Retail. "We are proud
to welcome this new center, its operating team and its customers into the
Brunswick family."

Over the next several weeks, guests will begin to see some changes to the
bowling center. Brunswick Zone will be evolving the food and beverage offerings,
modifying the game room, installing new Brunswick automatic scorers, providing
increased league support and offering a wide variety of bowling promotions,
including After-School Blast, Brunswick After Dark on Fridays, Cosmic Bowling®
on Saturday nights and Slammin' Sundays.

Located at 1661 Eastern Blvd. in the Stratford Square shopping mall, the
Brunswick Zone will be open 10 a.m. to midnight Sunday-Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2
a.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday. All leagues will continue without
interruption, and any group events and birthday parties will be held as booked.

Fox also noted that while Brunswick has been a part of the Montgomery community
for more than 24 years, the purchase of the Ace Bowling Center created a great
opportunity to offer the residents of Montgomery the full Brunswick Zone family
entertainment experience for which the Company has become famous. As part of
this purchase, Brunswick also announced that it would be moving all of its local
operations from Brunswick Woodmere Lanes to the new center.
