Rolling out the red carpet at the annual Chamber Ball

The Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association rolled out the red carpet Saturday night at the Hotel Colorado. And the winners are:Best Actress: Cyn Cyr, as Joan Rivers, played the acid-tongued comedienne who hosted the night.Best Actor: Rolf Hermanson. When a woman, who shall remain anonymous, realized she was showing too much cleavage, she cleverly stuck her chamber nametag on her bosom. Later when she misplaced the nametag, Hermanson, whos always a gentleman, helped her look for it. Really.Biggest Social Snub: It appeared the PI had been banished to the B-List when they realized they had been exiled to the Sunset Room Social Siberia, away from the live action of the main room, where they watched the event from a TV Simulcast. Egos, however, were soothed when Vicki Lee Green Realtors, SDS Mortgage, Mason & Morse and Ace Roofing were spotted in the same room. The year any of them end up on the B-list is the year Jennifer Lopez wins an Oscar.Best Dressed Ladies: Sisters Jenny and Megan Harvey. Jenny also had the best hair, an updo created by Megan, a stylist at Regis. Best-Dressed Men: Stephen Onorofskie, Keith Slater, and Jim Waters, all who wore tuxedos. Best Original Screenplay: A story about a man who inspires youth by teaching them integrity, leadership and morals. Jim Waters, Volunteer of the year is one of Glenwoods leading men. Star Couples: Nicole and Travis Hutchinson and Marcia and Ed Coover.Best Supporting Husband: Ned Barron, dressed as the Godfather, who stood by his wife, Carolyn, while she worked at the chamber check-in table most of the night.Best Cocktail: Blue Star Martini, whose proceeds benefit the scholarship fund for Glenwood Springs High School.Best Producer: Vicky Daulton, vice-president of special events and programs at The Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association was responsible for the event. Best Directors: Erin Amichaux, Krista Kaufman and their staff at the Hotel Colorado who, in their usual consummate manner catered to more than 400 people that night.Best Coming Attraction: Chamber Ball 2007: Get ready to dance in the sandBest Film: True Media Foundation made a fifteen minute film clip of Hank Bosco, Citizen of the Year where Bosco reminisced about growing up in Glenwood. One memory he had was of him and his best friend hanging out in front of the Hotel Denver as kids. One day, a man in a Model A Ford Coupe with a rumble seat pulled up in front of the hotel. After the boys spent hours admiring the car, he finally asked them if they wanted a ride. When this became a daily occurrence, Boscos mother became curious and watched from the window. The man in the car was Chicago gangster Diamond Jack Altier. My mother put a stop to the rides, Bosco said. While it is probably not because of his narrow escape with Diamond Jack, Bosco said he is thankful for one thing. Im just grateful that Im still here and able to contribute, Bosco said.
