Youth claim 'Bowl by Mail' trophies

SAN ANTONIO (AFPN) -- Air Force Services Agency officials here recently announced the winners of the annual Bowl by Mail tournament.

Bowl by Mail is a worldwide youth-bowling competition that allows children ages 5 through 18 to compete against others their age, but with a slight twist -- it is done via e-mail or postal mail.

Although games are not bowled during league play, Youth American Bowling Alliance league and tournament rules and regulations apply. Each bowler reported his or her scores to tournament organizers.

"It's a great tool that allows youth who are involved in bowling to see how they measure up to other youth around the world," said Karen Rudolph, a youth programs specialist here. "It also gives youth the opportunity to be introduced to a lifetime sport. The number of youth participating continues to increase."

This year 2,887 bowlers participated -- 800 more than last year, according to Rudolph.

The competition runs annually from November through February at all Air Force bases worldwide.

The winners amd categories for the fifth annual contest include:
