Celebrate Champions Day with a history lesson

 

 

For this third annual event, we are having Charles Avison, author of Detroit: City of Champions and several other Detroit sports history books, give a presentation on how impactful this year in sports was to the city. For the first time, it will be hosted at the Detroit Historical Museum, where the original City of Champions plaque is housed, and more historical sports memorabilia will be brought up that is not currently on display.

Afterwards, we have room reserved at Circa, the bar right around the corner on Cass Ave., to celebrate Champions' Day the way it was originally intended.

Let us know you are coming here.

Detroit-Born Sport Continues Champions' Week Tradition

The Fowling Warehouse took little time to become an instant hit around Detroit. The brand new sport combines footballs and bowling pins for a game that is both challenging and relaxing.

Thursday night we are accepting teams of 2 or 3 to be in the first Champions Tournament, featuring at least 16 teams in tournament play. The $10 per person fee gets you entry into the tournament and also the ability to keep fowling on open lanes after being eliminated or being crowned champions.

Register your team of 2 or 3 here.


3RD ANNUAL CHUG-A-LUG

4.23.16

5 MILES. 5 BARS. 5 NEIGHBORHOODS.

 

The Chug-a-Lug is a 5-mile, 5-bar fun run through 5 Detroit Neighborhoods. This is the last event of Champions' Week 2016. Governor Fitzgerald urged citizens "to pay tribute to the heroes of the sport world who have brought honor and glory to the State and Detroit." We want Champions' Week to celebrate everyone bringing glory to the city, including the residents and local business owners.

The theme is to show your Detroit pride, wear a jersey, t-shirt, or costume that shows what you love about the city, as we continue the sport-tradition with a real physical challenge.

Must be 21 to participate. Register here.
