The Athenia Veterans Post
was a sponsor for the
Clifton City Bowling Tournament that was held at
Bowling Lanes in Clifton. With fierce competition, AVP member Andy
Polick won the Class A Runner Up award. Andy
was a top bowler in this area who could have turned pro if it wasn't
for a work related injury to his arm. Above left is
Andy showing his top form while at his best, and to the
right is Andy showing his AVP trophy (left) and his "stein" trophy for bowling a perfect 300 game, one of his many
awards received as a bowler.
