Story Photo A convenience store manager from Columbia won $1,000 on her way to a bowling tournament in Springfield last Friday. Brenda Greer, 38, said she and her boyfriend stopped at Git-N-Go, 656 N. Jefferson in Lebanon, and they each bought one "Explore Missouri" Scratchers ticket. Greer played her ticket while they were headed out of the convenience store and discovered it was worth $1,000. "It (winning) made it (trip) more fun," Greer told Lottery officials when she claimed her prize today. Greer, who manages Randy’s Market in Prathersville, said she plans to use the windfall to help pay for an upcoming bowling tournament in Billings, Mont. "Explore Missouri" is the 406th Scratchers game offered by the Missouri Lottery. The $2 game officially started April 6.
