PART I
 
ITEM 1. BUSINESS
 
(a) General Development of Business
 
Bowl America Incorporated (herein referred to as the “Company”) was incorporated in 1958. The Company commenced business with one bowling center in 1958, and at the end of the past fiscal year, the Company and its wholly- owned subsidiaries operated 19 bowling centers.
 
(b) Financial Information about Industry Segments
 
The Company operates in one segment. Its principal source of revenue consists of fees charged for the use of bowling lanes and other facilities and from the sale of food and beverages for consumption on the premises. At the end of the fiscal year 2011, the Company had revenues of approximately $26.5 million, per share earnings of $.30, and approximately $41 million in total assets. Merchandise sales, including food and beverages, were approximately 29% of operating revenues. The balance of operating revenues (approximately 71%) represents fees for bowling and related services. See the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements on pages 16 through 28 of this Form 10-K for more detailed information.
 
(c) Narrative Description of Business
 
As of September 1, 2011 the Registrant and its subsidiaries operated 10 bowling centers in the greater metropolitan area of Washington, D.C., one bowling center in the greater metropolitan area of Baltimore, Maryland, one bowling center in Orlando, Florida, three bowling centers in the greater metropolitan area of Jacksonville, Florida, and four bowling centers in the greater metropolitan area of Richmond, Virginia. These 19 bowling centers contain a total of 756 lanes.
 
These establishments are fully air-conditioned with facilities for service of food and beverages, game rooms, rental lockers, and meeting room facilities. All centers provide shoes for rental, and bowling balls are provided free. In addition, each center retails bowling accessories. Most locations are equipped for glow-in-the-dark bowling, popular for parties and non-league bowling.
 
The bowling equipment essential for the Company's operation is readily available. The major source of its equipment is Brunswick Corporation.
 
The bowling business is a seasonal one, and most of the business takes place from October through May. It is highly competitive, but the Company has managed to maintain its position in the markets in which it operates. The principal method of competition is the quality of service furnished to the Company's customers. Its primary competitors are Brunswick Corporation, a large bowling equipment manufacturer, and AMF Bowling Worldwide, Inc.
 
Compliance with federal, state and local environmental protection laws has not materially affected the Company.
 
The number of persons employed by the Company and its subsidiaries is approximately 600 including approximately 250 full time employees.
 
(d) Financial Information about Geographic Areas.
 
The Company has no foreign operations.

Exhibit 99 (d) Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
The following sets forth, in accordance with Section 404(a) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and Item 308 (a) of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Regulation S-K, the annual report of management of the Company on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
 
1. Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting in a process designed by, or under the supervision of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, and effected by the Company’s Board of Directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:
 
·  
Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company;
 
·  
Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and
 
·  
Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
 
2. Management of the Company, in accordance with Rule 13a-15(d) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of July 3, 2011. The framework on which management’s evaluation of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting is based is the “Internal Control-Integrated Framework” published in 1992 by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (“COSO”) of the Treadway Commission.
 
3. Management has determined that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, as of July 3, 2011, was effective. No material weaknesses in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting were identified by management. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
 
4. This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm pursuant to a permanent exemption for non-accelerated filers from the internal control audit requirements of Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

Exhibit 99(b) MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
The Company views a strong financial position as a major benefit to shareholders and emphasizes payment of dividends as part of its financial plan. A portion of earnings has consistently been invested to create a reserve to protect the Company in downturns in business, to capitalize on opportunities for expansion and modernization and to provide a secure source of income. For these reasons, the Company prefers a conservative approach to investing rather than taking greater risk for possible rapid growth. The Company balances market volatility by using both fixed income and equity investments in managing its reserve funds. Any equity security is subject to price fluctuation, however, the stocks held by the Company have relatively low volatility. The Company has long been invested in a Government National Mortgage Association (“Ginnie Mae”) fund and domestically domiciled stocks with the perceived potential of appreciation, primarily telecommunications stocks. This diversity also provides a measure of safety of principal.
 
Common stocks in our portfolio have come from spin-offs, mergers and acquisitions of AT&T and United Telecommunications (now Sprint) purchased in 1979 and 1984. While not all stocks in the portfolio are domestic American companies any longer, since the original purchases at an approximate cost of $630,000, we have received approximately $962,000 from mergers and sales and over $2,900,000 in dividends, the majority of which are tax favored in the form of exclusion from federal taxable income. These marketable securities are carried at their fair value on the last day of the year. The value of the securities on July 3, 2011 was approximately $4.2 million, an increase of approximately $900,000 from June 27, 2010.
 
Short-term investments consisting mainly of Certificates of Deposits, cash and cash equivalents totaled $8,660,000 at the end of fiscal 2011 compared to $9,716,000 at the end of fiscal 2010.
 
The Company's position in all the above investments is a source of expansion capital. Potential volatility in the trading prices of the marketable securities held by the Company could impact the Company’s opportunities for expansion. The Board of Directors reviews the portfolio weekly and any use of this reserve at its quarterly meetings.
 
Cash flow provided by operating activities for the year ended July 3, 2011, was $3,529,000. Equipment purchases during fiscal year 2011 used approximately $1,163,000 and short-term cash was used to meet the balance required to pay dividends totaling $3,242,593.
 
The changes in the categories of Accounts Payable and Accrued Expenses generally relate to timing of payments including compensation and cash contribution to a benefit plan.
 
The Company has made no application for third party funding as cash and cash flows are sufficient to finance all contemplated purchases and to meet short-term purchase commitments and operating lease commitments.
 
The Company paid cash dividends totaling approximately $3.2 million, or $.63 per share to shareholders during the 2011 fiscal year, making this the thirty-ninth consecutive year of increased regular dividends per share. In June 2011, the Company declared a quarterly $.16 per share dividend, paid in August 2011. The uncertain economic climate may require a review by the directors of future estimates of cash flows. The Board of Directors decides the amount and timing of any dividend at its quarterly meeting based on its appraisal of the state of the business and estimate of future opportunities at such time.

OVERVIEW
 
The Company is in the entertainment business which, by its nature, has ups and downs based on consumer tastes and whims. Generally, promotional and open play bowling which depends on the public’s discretionary budget dollars and their choices, accounts for more than half of our business. An unstable economy can lead many to participate in entertainment that is close to home and relatively inexpensive. Bowling has those advantages. However, the longer the economy remains unstable, the less willing people are to spend on other than necessities. Current economic conditions continue to create challenges, but our response is helped by having the resources to be able to promote the sport. Weather is also a factor, especially for casual bowlers. While extreme heat or rainy weather prompt people to look for indoor activities, heavy snow storms can keep customers from reaching the centers. Postponed league games are made up later in the season, but lost open play income is never recovered.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Fiscal year 2011 consisted of 53 weeks with the extra week reported in the fourth quarter. Fiscal 2010 consisted of 52 weeks. All revenue and expense categories and comparisons in this report are influenced by the difference in the number of weeks in operation. Nineteen centers were in operation throughout both years.
 
Management believes that the persistent uncertainty of the economic recovery has adversely affected customers’ appetites for recreational spending for both league and open play games. In fiscal 2010 the combination of major snow storms in our northern market areas during the height of the open play bowling season and the negative economic climate was the primary cause of the decline in net earnings. The Company continues to review and adjust its budget in light of the current economic conditions.

Total operating revenue decreased $609,000 to $26.5 million in fiscal 2011 compared to a decrease of $2,584,000 to $27.1 million in fiscal 2010. Bowling and other revenue decreased $388,000 in fiscal 2011 versus a decrease of $1,928,000 in fiscal 2010. Food, beverage and merchandise sales decreased $192,000 in fiscal 2011 versus a decrease of $700,000 in fiscal 2010.
 
Operating Expenses
 
As discussed in more detail below, total operating expenses decreased 0.3%, or $68,000, in fiscal year 2011 versus a decrease of 3.5%, or $902,000 in fiscal 2010. Costs for employee compensation and benefits were up 0.4% or $45,000 in fiscal 2011 versus a decrease of 6.1% or $813,000 in fiscal 2010. Scheduling adjustments in both years resulted in decreases in compensation, however higher company contributions to group health insurance benefit in fiscal 2011 were the cause of the increased expense in the current year. This category includes contributions to our two benefit plans, both of which are defined contribution plans. There is no additional obligation beyond the current year contribution.
 
Cost of bowling and other services decreased $52,000 or 0.7% in the year ended July 3, 2011 versus an increase of $19,000 in the prior fiscal year. In fiscal year 2011, maintenance expense was down 5% or $49,000 and included interior updating at several locations. Fiscal 2010 showed an increase of 17%, or $161,000, as a result of the cost of snow removal. Supplies expense increased 3% or $31,000 in fiscal 2011 partially the result of increased use of computer related products. The prior year showed a decline of 6%, or $61,000. Advertising costs increased $110,000, or 13%, in fiscal 2011 and $105,000 or 14% in fiscal 2010. Both years included aggressive multi-media campaigns. Utility costs decreased 1% in fiscal 2011 versus a decrease of 9% in fiscal 2010 when electrical fixtures were upgraded.
 
Cost of food, beverage and merchandise sales increased 8,000 or .4% primarily due to lower profit margin on merchandise sales. The same category declined 11.5% in fiscal 2010 due to lower sales and tighter inventory control.
 
Depreciation expenses decreased approximately 8% and 2% in fiscal year 2011 and 2010 respectively, as some large assets reached full depreciation.
 
Operating income in fiscal 2011 decreased 23.2% from $2.3 million in fiscal 2010 to $1.8 million.
 
Interest and Dividend Income
 
Interest and dividend income increased 9.4% in fiscal 2011 due to increased dividends on our stock portfolio. In addition, the Ginnie Mae fund sold more of its portfolio in the current year than in prior years resulting in the receipt of additional income. In fiscal 2010 the decline in interest income, due primarily to lower interest rates on investments, resulted in a drop of 21.9% in this category.
 
Income taxes
 
Effective income tax rates for the Company were 34.4% for fiscal 2011 and 35.3% for fiscal 2010, the difference from statutory rates being primarily for the partial exclusion of dividends received on investments.
 
Net Earnings
 
Net earnings in fiscal 2011 were $1.6 million, or $.30 per share, compared to $1.9 million, or $.36 per share in fiscal 2010.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
We have identified accounting for marketable investment securities as a critical accounting policy due to the significance of the amounts included in our balance sheet. The Company exercises judgment in determining the classification of its investment securities as available-for-sale and in determining their fair value. The Company records these investments at their fair value based on quoted market prices with the unrealized gain or loss recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income, a component of stockholders' equity, net of deferred taxes. Additionally, from time to time the Company must assess whether write-downs are necessary for other than temporary declines in value.
 
We have identified accounting for the impairment of long-lived assets as a critical accounting policy due to the significance of the amounts included in our balance sheet under the caption of Land, Buildings and Equipment. The Company reviews long-lived assets whenever events or changes indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. In making such evaluations, the Company compares the expected future cash flows to the carrying amount of the assets. An impairment loss equal to the difference between the assets' fair value and carrying value is recognized when the estimated undiscounted future cash flows are less than the carrying amount.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
 
Board of Directors and Stockholders
Bowl America Incorporated
Alexandria, Virginia
 
We have audited the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheets of Bowl America Incorporated and Subsidiaries as of July 3, 2011 and June 27, 2010, and the related Consolidated Statements of Earnings and Comprehensive Earnings, Stockholders' Equity and Cash Flows for the years then ended. Bowl America Incorporated and Subsidiaries’ management is responsible for these consolidated financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Bowl America Incorporated and Subsidiaries as of July 3, 2011 and June 27, 2010, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

BOWL AMERICA INCORPORATED AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
1. ORGANIZATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Organization
 
Bowl America Incorporated is engaged in the operation of 19 bowling centers, with food and beverage service in each center. Ten centers are located in metropolitan Washington D.C., one center in metropolitan Baltimore, Maryland, one center in metropolitan Orlando, Florida, four centers in metropolitan Richmond, Virginia, and three centers in metropolitan Jacksonville, Florida. These 19 centers contain a total of 756 lanes.
 
The Company operates in one segment.
 
Principles of Consolidation
 
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its wholly-owned subsidiary corporations. All significant inter­company items have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.
 
Fiscal Year
 
The Company's fiscal year ends on the Sunday nearest to June 30. Fiscal year 2011 ended July 3, 2011, and consisted of 53 weeks. Fiscal year 2010 ended June 27, 2010 and consisted of 52 weeks.
 
Subsequent Events
 
The Company has evaluated subsequent events through the time of filing these financial statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 28, 2011.
 
Estimates
 
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from those estimates.
 
Significant estimates include the deferred compensation liability for executives and key employees including survivor benefits, depreciation expense, cash surrender value of officers' life insurance, the Federal and State income taxes (current and deferred), and market assumptions used in estimating the fair value of certain assets such as marketable securities and long-lived assets.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
The Company records revenue for fees charged for use of bowling lanes and other facilities at the time the services are provided. Food, beverage and merchandise sales are recorded as revenue at the time the product is given to the customer.
 
 
-20-

 
 
Depreciation and Amortization
 
Depreciation and amortization for financial statement purposes are calculated by use of the straight-line method. Amortization of leasehold improvements is calculated over the estimated useful life of the asset or term of the lease, whichever is shorter. The categories of property, plant, and equipment and the ranges of estimated useful lives on which depreciation and amortization rates are based are as follows:
 
Bowling lanes and equipment 
3-10 years
Building and building improvements
10-39 years
Leasehold improvements 
5-10 years
Amusement games 
3-5 years
 
Maintenance and repairs and minor replacements are charged to expense when incurred. Major replacements and betterments are capitalized. The accounts are adjusted for the sale or other disposition of property, and the resulting gain or loss is credited or charged to income.
 
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
 
The Company reviews long-lived assets whenever events or changes indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. In making such evaluations, the Company compares the expected future cash flows to the carrying amount of the assets. An impairment loss, equal to the difference between the assets' fair value and carrying value, is recognized when the estimated undiscounted future cash flows are less than the carrying amount.
 
Dividends
 
It is the Company's policy to accrue a dividend liability at the time the dividends are declared.
 
Advertising Expense
 
It is the Company's policy to expense advertising expenditures as they are incurred. The Company's advertising expenses for the years ending July 3, 2011, and June 27, 2010, were $959,043 and $849,095, respectively.
 
Inventories
 
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market. Inventories consist of resale merchandise including food and beverage and bowling supplies.
 
Income Taxes
 
Deferred income tax liabilities and assets are based on the differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities, using tax rates currently in effect. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that a deferred tax asset will not be realized.
 
Investment Securities
 
All of the Company's readily marketable debt and equity securities are classified as available-for-sale. Accordingly, these securities are recorded at fair value with any unrealized gains and losses excluded from earnings and reported, net of deferred taxes, within a separate component of stockholders' equity until realized. Realized gains or losses on the sale of debt and equity securities are reported in earnings and determined using the adjusted cost of the specific security sold.
 
Earnings Per Share
 
Earnings per share basic and diluted, have been calculated using the weighted average number of shares of Class A and Class B common stock outstanding of 5,147,117, and 5,141,102, for fiscal years 2011 and 2010, respectively.
 
 
-21-

 
 
Comprehensive Earnings
 
A consolidated statement of comprehensive earnings reflecting the aggregation of net earnings and unrealized gain or loss on available-for-sale securities, the Company's principal components of other comprehensive earnings, has been presented for each of the two years in the period ended July 3, 2011.
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
For purposes of the consolidated statements of cash flows, the Company considers money market funds, certificates of deposits, and repurchase agreements with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company maintains cash accounts which may exceed federally insured limits during the year, but does not believe that this results in any significant credit risk.
 
Other Current Liabilities
 
Other current liabilities include prize fund monies held by the Company for bowling leagues. The funds are returned to the leagues at the end of the league bowling season. At July 3, 2011 and June 27, 2010 other current liabilities included $289,718 and $283,344, respectively, in prize fund monies.
 
Reclassifications
 
Certain previous year amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation.
 
New Accounting Standards
 
In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued guidance in the form of an amendment that requires all non-owner changes in stockholders' equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In the two-statement approach, the first statement should present total net income and its components followed consecutively by a second statement that should present total other comprehensive income, the components of other comprehensive income, and the total of comprehensive income. This amendment is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011. Management does not believe this will have a material effect on its financial statements as currently two consecutive separate statements are presented.
 
In May 2011, the FASB issued guidance in the form of an amendment, which is intended to improve comparability of fair value measurements presented and disclosed in financial statements. This amendment is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The amendment increases disclosure related to the measurement of non-financial assets at fair value. Management does not believe this will have a material impact on the financial statements.

July 3,
   
June 27,
 
 
 
2011
   
2010

Repurchase agreements
    -       337,413  
 
  $ 2,361,846     $ 2,579,487  
 
The Company’s overnight repurchase agreements have restrictions that allow for the funds to be invested only in government backed securities. The account balances at times exceed federally insured limits. The Company does not believe this poses any significant risk.
 
3.  
INVESTMENTS
 
The Company’s marketable securities are categorized as available-for-sale securities. The cost for marketable securities was determined using the specific identification method. The fair values of marketable securities are based on the quoted market price for those securities. Short-term investments consist of certificates of deposits with maturities of generally three months to one year. At July 3, 2011, the fair value of short-term investments was $6,297,822. At June 27, 2010, the fair value of short-term investments was $7,136,584. Non-current investments are marketable securities which primarily consist of telecommunications stocks and a mutual fund that invests in mortgage backed securities. Unrealized gains and losses are reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive earnings in Stockholders’ Equity.
 
As of July 3, 2011, the Company had $163,019 of gross unrealized gains from its investments in federal agency mortgage backed securities which had a fair value of $3,302,418. As of June 27, 2010, $181,718 in gross unrealized gains were from its investments in federal agency mortgage backed securities which had a fair value of $3,144,796.

As stated in Note 1, the Company records its readily marketable debt and equity securities at fair value. These assets are valued in accordance with a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:
 
 
Level 1. 
Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;
 
 
Level 2. 
Inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and
 
 
Level 3.
Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which  require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.
