A very special event is planned for Saturday, Nov. 9, at Coz’s Sports Bar and Bowl. Famous Team USA bowler, John Janawicz will be present for a “Meet and Greet” session that day at 3:30. Autographs and photos will be available for a donation to Special STARS. There will be an opportunity to win Janawicz’s Team USA shirt from a World Tenpin Bowling Association Championship.

Janawicz won a Silver Medal (team) and Bronze Medal (doubles) at the 2013 WTBA world championship and a Gold medal at the 2012 PABCON Championship. He is a five-time Florida State Bowling Association State Tournament finalist and a member of the Florida State Bowling Hall of Fame.

Janawicz’s visit to Lake Placid headlines a Cosmic 9 Pin No Tap Tournament being held Saturday, Nov. 9, at Coz’s, called “Bowling With The Special Stars.” Registration for the event begins at 3:30 p.m. The cost is $25 per person or $100 for a four-person team. Each team will bowl with one Special STARS athlete. Neon T-shirts are $8 each for early registration turned in by Nov. 1.

The tournament directly benefits The Special STARS organization which, in turn, benefits persons with developmental handicaps.
