Inducted 1988 - Meritorious Service
Ann Adams began her bowling career in 1965 at College Park Bowl when a neighbor asked her to become a member of her team. A year later, Ann began her long career in bowling management by serving as league secretary, a position she continued to occupy in various leagues for many years after. Ann was asked to serve as a teller at an association meeting in 1967. The following year, she decided to attend the annual meeting of the LVWBA because she didnít have anything else to do that evening. At the end of that evening, Ann found herself elected as a director on the LVWBA Board. She steadily advanced up the ladder eventually holding every office except Treasurer and Sergeant-at-Arms. Soon, Ann focused on the Nevada WBA and eventually served as its Secretary for several years. Ann had a love of writing and produced many articles and served on many boards that promoted writing and bowling. She won many awards for her writing skills. Her interest in writing took her to the Presidency of the National Women Bowling Writers and a member of the Bowling Writers Association of America. Ann worked tirelessly in every bid for the WIBC tournament that the Las Vegas WBA launched, culminating in her role as Tournament Coordinator for the 1983 WIBC tournament. The NWBA Repertory Players, a fixture at any NWBA Jamboree, is the result of Annís talent and writing. The humor depicted in the skits she produces conveys learning combined with laughter, a potent combination. Annís proudest moments in her bowling career include her induction into the LVWBA and NWBA Halls of Fame for Meritorious Service, her Nevada WBA championships for Singles and handicap All Events, and her Las Vegas WBA championship for handicap All Events.
