There is a very long list of bowlers in the IBHOF who have bowled a sanctioned 300 game.
No. The word sanctioned in bowling means: " Competition in accordance with American Bowling Congress or Women's International Bowling Congress rules. " Since, according to rules, foul line lights and buzzers must be in working order during competition the game would not be sanctioned under the rules of the ABC or WIBC.
Only games bowled under a sanctioned league may receive recognition by the sanctioning organization that the league sanctioned with. For example, if the league is based in the US and did not sanction in USBC then scores will not be recognized for any USBC awards, including the 300 ring. Even if bowlers who are members of a non-sanctioned league bowl a 300, they can not qualify for any USBC awards if the league did not sanction.
