Special Olympics Georgia's Masters Bowling Tournament Returns To Warner Robins

ATLANTA, Aug. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia's own Warner Robins will once again host Special Olympics Georgia's Masters Bowling Tournament.

During this time, approximately 1,300 Special Olympics Georgia athletes and Unified Partners at the "masters" age level, over the age of 22 years, will arrive in the South Georgia town, along with over 300 coaches and 300 volunteers. The Tournament is free and open for fans of all ages to come watch and cheer on the athletes.

"We are excited to be back in Warner Robins for another Masters Bowling Tournament. We are extremely grateful for the friendship and gracious hospitality of Warner Robins. This is a huge event that our organization, athletes, and volunteers all look forward to, and we encourage all of our fans to come out and support our athletes and all of the individuals that work to make this event possible," commented Special Olympics Georgia CEO, Georgia Milton-Sheats.

Competition will start on Friday, August 16 and continue through the duration of the weekend. The Tournament will be held at Gold Cup Lanes and Robins Air Force Base Bowling Center (Robins Lanes).

The Opening Ceremony will also commence on Friday at Southside Baptist Church. Warner Robins' own Mayor Randy Toms will once again join us as this year's Grand Marshal alongside Co-Grand Marshal, Mason Massey, and WGXA News meteorologist Jeff Cox, who is the Tournament's Master of Ceremony.
