2018 Postal Lineup
By Al Myers
The entire 2018 Postal Series Meets have been announced. The USAWA has had a long history of promoting postal meets, and for the last several years have hosted a Postal Series, consisting of 4 quarterly Postal Meets with the last one being the Postal Championships.
The promotion of these meets are done by the USAWA, under the direction of the Postal Meet Director Denny Habecker. All scoresheets are to be sent to Denny as he does the formula calculations for the final meet standings. There is no entry fee to enter the USAWA Postal Meets. The Postal series is sponsored by the USAWA. However, you must be a current member of the USAWA to participate.
