Bowling Awards 2014

Bowling Awards 2014

The Annual Camp Venture Bowling Awards event on July 19, 2014 was a grand gala that culminated a spirited season of competitive bowling. The Venture family’s premier sporting contest, the tournament draws bowlers and bowling enthusiasts from every corner of the agency.

The Venture Center Auditorium in Sparkill, New York was alive with the music and merriment on this beautiful summer afternoon as agency notables gathered for the awards party and celebration. A near capacity crowd filled the hall as the sounds of DJ John’s driving rhythms got the party started and the room up on its feet. There was plenty of dancing and fun but the conversation was all bowling as players and spectators alike relived the tournament season. Trading personal histories, exchanging top scores and recalling competition highlights, the room was abuzz with excitement.

Acknowledgements and prizes for any number of the players were presented as first, second and third place recognition but the major awards for Highest Score, Best Sportsmanship and for Tournament Champion were the main event.

Lee P. accepted his “High Score” trophy in a manner befitting a noble competitor. A less reserved, Bernadette M. was ecstatic as grasped the Sportsmanship award as she grinned from ear to ear.. But it would be Tony W. who would stand before his peers with the really big trophy as the Tournament Champion. And, with the quiet understatement characteristic of a true champion, he clutched his prize firmly in a humble silence as the crowd burst into an applause that rocked the room. It was a great moment for for this quiet man but also for the entire group as they embraced not only the glory and elation of this time-honored sporting tradition, but the ties that bind them as a family. Indeed, they were all this winners this day!

Many thanks to Terry and the Recreation staff.
