Clearwater, Florida - The PNA 72nd National Bowling Tournament was held this year on April 27 and 28, 2018 in Clearwater, Florida. Bowlers and guests gathered at the Maple Lanes Countryside Bowl for their assigned squads.

The Friday squads of Singles and Doubles, a bowler who resides in Florida, Robert Smolka rolled a perfect 300 game. After the event, the bowlers were treated to a hospitality night to welcome the bowlers at the bowling alley. The Home Office provided snacks and drinks for all attending.

Saturday featured the team event. Before the team event, the annual opening ceremonies was held. Vice President Marian Grabowski was introduced by Fraternal Coordinator Mary Srodon. He welcomed the bowlers to Florida and wished them good bowling and high scores thanked the management of Maple Lane Countryside Bowl and their staff for the terrific job they have done for the tournament and sent greetings from PNA President Frank J. Spula and Treasurer Steve Tokarski. The Mayor of Clearwater, Mr. George Cretekos was introduced, who greeted all to Clearwater, and then threw out the first ball to officially open the tournament. PNA dignitaries and guests who attended the opening ceremonies included; Vice President Marian Grabowski, PNA Director, Greg Chilecki; PNA Commissioner; Wanda Juda (District 13), Fraternal Coordinator Mary Srodon, and Former PNA Director Anna Wierzbicki.

To keep with the tradition the winning Men's and Ladies teams from the 71st Tournament held in Lockport, Illinois were announced by Tournament Coordinator Robert M. Jadach. A group photo of all the bowlers attending was then taken. Although the attendance was small those who traveled out to the tournament enjoyed themselves with fun and fraternalism.
