Tournament of Champions 2015

Tournament of Champions 2015

Bowlers and bowling fans alike gathered in celebration on the afternoon of July 18, to mark the culmination of the 2015 season with their annual awards celebration. On hand was a host of competitors from every corner of the Camp Venture agency assembled to honor the most note-worthy athletic achievements of the past season.

The tension in the Venture Center’s Coleman Gromack Auditorium was palpable as the awards event kicked off with DJ music and dancing. And, though the party was lively, all eyes were on the trophies conspicuously assembled at the front of the room for all to see. Indeed, who would be bringing home the gold or, as the case may be, the really really big trophy?

For competitors, it was almost excruciating, as agency Executive Director, Dan Lukens began announcing the awards for the supporters and cheerleaders first before moving on to the third, second and first place awards respectively.

Finally, it was time. Runners up were mentioned and the formalities had been dispensed and sitting all alone was the big one. A hushed silence fell upon the room as the assembled breathlessly awaited the news.

“Ladies and gentlemen, bowlers and bowling fans of all ages,” Lukens announced. “The winner of the 2015 Camp Venture Tournament of Champions Kathleen Lukens award is John B. (of Clucas House) and with those word the room burst into applause. Clasping his prize, the man of the hour then raised it in a sign of victory as the crowd went wild.

It was a moment of pure joy for one man but for this family of friends, it was a time for winners as each of them was a champion this day!

Many thanks to Terry Freson and all of the recreation staff for a great season and a great event.
