Thunder Road and ACT Banquets Separated
New Saturday, March 21st Date Set for Thunder Road

Due to an overwhelming response for the planned American Canadian Tour and Thunder Road combined Banquet of Champions planned for Saturday, January 10, 2015, the Thunder Road portion has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 21st at the Elks Club in Barre. The ACT banquet will remain at the Doubletree Inn in Burlington on Saturday, January 10th, 2015.

The 2014 banquets were planned to be combined ACT and Thunder Road ceremonies at the Doubletree in January, but reservations for the event exceeded the room capacity. Therefore it has been announced that Thunder Road will have a stand-alone Banquet of Champions honoring the top ten for all three divisions plus rookies and special awards at the Elks Club in Barre on Saturday, March 21st, 2015.
