With Spring in full swing, it’s time to go ahead and start looking ahead to our convention scheduled for this summer.

We will hold the 43rd Annual Alabama Sports Writers Association Convention at Troy University, marking the first time the event will be hosted there.

The dates in Troy are set for June 8-9. The Sunday kickoff luncheon, business meeting and professional seminar are planned for Trojan Arena.

The Sunday night reception and awards banquet will be held in the Stadium Club at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Tommy Hicks, the current Vice-President, will move into the role of President at the conclusion of this convention.

We have secured a rate of $96 per night at the Courtyard by Marriott within a mile of the campus for those wishing to stay overnight. You can contact them directly at 334-566-0540 to reserve your room. Just ask for the ASWA rate.

The Monday golf outing is planned for the Troy Country Club.

In addition to your room in Troy, your expense for the trip will include being a member in good standing (i.e having paid your dues) and the convention fee. The annual dues are $25 and the convention fee is an additional $25 if paid in advance. They can be mailed at anytime to ASWA, c/o Jacksonville State Sports
