We have finished our 61 st AWBA National Tournament. Curt and I are very pleased with how the tournament went off. We heard from many Members that this was one of our best tournaments put on. There were many things we would have done differently and will change in years to come but successful, nonetheless.

We hope everyone made it home safely and enjoyed their time in Colorado. We would like to thank all our Volunteers, Julet, Carol, Mountain States PVA Chapter and their ladies who ran the 50/50 all week for us. A huge thanks to Loretta Spotts, you did an amazing job. Also, thanks to Meara Kortum for heading up our raffle portion of the Up/Down on Friday night. You all made this tournament doable, and we are very appreciative of your efforts. Our Tournament was held at Bowlero Wheat Ridge, Colorado. Tim was our contact and Manager of this Bowlero. Tim did an awesome job for us, very accommodating and again, we are very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Bowlero for this National Tournament. The AWBA is working with Bowlero to put together a partnership with Bowlero so we can try to hold as many tournaments as possible at the local Bowlero’s.

A huge thank you to Storm, I Am Bowling, BPAA, BVL and the USBC, and Sportaid, Sports and Spokes, we cannot and do not want to do it without your support. Thanks to Toodie Perry for all her donations over the years, she really puts heart and soul into all the raffle items she donates to the Nationals each year.

Antonio Garcia and James were a huge help in all aspects of making this tournament run, thanks to both of you for all you did at this tournament as well as all year long.


Scratch Division, Dave Nelson beat out Mark Shepherd, Doug Dalton then won over Dave. Doug then faced Eddy Hutchens where Eddy prevailed. Eddy then bowled George Holscher in the final match.

Neither of these two seemed too eager to win as the match was given back and forth. Eddy ended the match with a win over George for back-to-back National Titles.

A Division, Frank Goebel lost to Rick Mahaney in the first match. Rick then bowled Gil Herrera where Gil was victorious. Gil then bowled William Leavitt. Will won that one and moved on to bowl Gary Poole. Will was also able to best Gary for the National Title in the A Division.

B Division, Roy Gray took on Debra Freed and was able to defeat her. Roy then bowled Rich Goebel where Roy was also the winner. Roy then fell to Chris Murphy in their match. Chris then bowled Jamie Rodriguez where Jamie was able to overtake Chris and give Jamie back-to-back National Titles.

Congratulations to all our bowlers and I am so looking forward to our 62 nd National Championship which may be held in Iowa with Dave Nelson as the Tournament Director. Go Big Red!!!

In closing, I am sure I missed so many that helped make this tournament a success and I am sorry. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you…

Curt Wolff and Eddy Hutchens, Co Tournament Directors
