53rd National Championship Tournament


Bowl America Short Pump, Glen Allen, VA

June 9-14, 2014



AWBA Members and Friends,


On behalf of our national sponsors, National Paralyzed Veterans of America, Storm, the Bowlers Company, USBC, ABC Medical  and our local sponsors Mid-Atlantic Chapter Paralyzed Veterans of America Richmond and Independent Wheelchair Athlete Association, and other sponsors, I extend this invitation to attend our annual National Championship Bowling Tournament.

The Tournament Committee has worked extremely hard to make this week enjoyable for each of you. I am honored to host the 53rd National, being held in Glen Allen, VA. Hopefully you will have time to do some sightseeing, renew past acquaintances, and create new friendships during the week of bowling and social activities.

Bowl America will be our host for this year’s event. It is a facility with 40 synthetic lanes and we’re receiving tremendous support from them. We hope the entries will exceed 80 competitors. If you haven’t received your entry form, go to www.awba.org for all the information.

We are using the Hilton Short Pump as our Host Hotel (804-364-3600) – when calling mention our block for AWBA Tournament.  Bowl America is about one mile from the Hilton.

There are a few other hotels in the area as well, our second choice would be Hyatt Place (804-360-7021), ask for Chrissy and mention AWBA.

I recommend that each of you make your reservations at your earliest convenience, our reservation cut off for the Hilton is May 10, 2014 in order to get this great rate of $119.00 plus tax at this wonderful hotel.

The tournament committee is not handling transportation to the hotel or bowling center.  If you plan on traveling by air to this area, you may fly into Richmond.

As tournament director, it would be great to have a large turnout and make this one of our most memorable celebrations for our 533rd Annual National Championship Tournament.

See you in June,

Jimmy May                                                                        Joe Fox, Sr.
