1990 – Meritorious Service
As a dedicated bowling volunteer, Paul Chaffin’s leadership abilities became apparent in his local association, the Greater Columbus Men’s Bowling Association. He was elected to the board in 1962 and is now serving in his 29th year. Paul not only served as President one year during this span, but also as Executive Secretary for three years and was later elected a Life Member and inducted in to the GCMBA Hall of Fame.
Continuing his leadership career, Paul was elected a Director-At-Large of the Ohio State Bowling Association. Among many other duties, he served as Tournament Director for three years. In 1983 he was elected Life Member in recognition of his dedicated service.
On the national level, Paul served on the ABC Board of Directors from 1973-1983.
Paul’s talent was not confined to the administrative field alone. In July 1973 he reached the ultimate goal by rolling a 300 game as part of a 726 series.
Tonight is a fitting tribute for a man who served on the committee that organized the first Ohio Bowling Council Hall of Fame and Awards Banquet.
