SAN ANTONIO (AFRNS) -- The 4th annual Retired Military Bowling Championships take place January 20 to 25 at the Gold Coast Hotel, Casino and Bowling Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

More than 750 bowlers competed in the 2007 event and the 2008 event is expected to set a new entry record in what is described as the largest retired military bowling event in the world, said event organizers. The 2008 tournament will award more than $80,000 in cash and prizes.

This scratch event has two divisions based on age: the regular retired division includes bowlers age 59 and younger; and the senior retired division for bowlers age 60 and older.

Applications have been mailed to those bowlers on the mailing list. Acceptance is on a first-come, first-served basis. Entry forms are available online at www.militarybowlingchampionships.com, by phone at (800) 257-6179 and by e-mail to highroller@militarybowlingchampionships.com.
