Another “special award” presented at Nationals was the 25 Year Promotion Award. This award went to the 4 Meet Promoters who have promoted the most National Championships over the 25 year history of the USAWA. These 4 promoters each have promoted 3 Championship events. They are: Denny and Judy Habecker (2010, 2007, & 2000), John Vernacchio (2004, 1989, & 1988), Bill Clark and Joe Garcia (2001, 1997, & 1995), and Art Montini and John McKean (2002, 1999, & 1991).
So to sum it up – these 4 promoters together have promoted about HALF of the National Champinships to date! That’s worthy of a special award in my book! Congratulations!!!
