With information from the Albany Recreation and Parks Department

The Albany Recreation and Parks Department is hosting the Strikers Classic Masters Bowling Invitational for Special Olympics Georgia (SOGA), at the AMF Bowl-A-Rama on West Broad Ave.

The tournament, which is the first of its kind in Georgia, will be a good preparation for the Special Olympics Georgia Master's Bowling event to be held in August in Warner Robins.

Over 100 athletes from as far as Newnan and Valdosta are in Albany for the competition.

Charles White, SOGA Area Manager said, "Special Olympics Georgia is very excited about the Strikers Classic State Bowling Invitational in Albany GA! This is a top notch event with athletes from around the state having this event marked on their calendars since last year."

"Albany Recreation and Parks Dept. along with the help of volunteers from the Albany community do a fantastic job with this and we look forward to a great competition."
