Sportsman of the Year Announced at Annual Banquet

The Northwestern CT Sportsmen’s Association recently held its 89th annual banquet at the Crystal Peak banquet facility in Winsted.

The annual gathering brought together over 200 members of the local sportsmen’s club that was established in 1927 to honor one of their own. The Peter Holms Trophy for Sportsman of the Year was awarded to John Ahrens who sits on the Board of Directors for the organization and is a resident of Winsted.

This award is given out annually to the member of the club who best exemplifies a true Sportsman in promoting the outdoor sports and the welfare of the organization. Mr. Ahrens has served on the Board of Directors of the organization for over 15 years and also is an avid Revoluntary War re-enactor.
