Turkey Run has long been driven by TRADITION. For Serb Fest’s First Generation, coming to Turkey Run meant fantastic canoeing and hiking and an opportunity for old friends and family to gather around a grill for good food, good conversation, and of course, good holy water. While Serb Fest's First Generation laid the foundation for what TR has become today, the Second Generation has introduced new traditions giving their incarnation of Serb Fest its own identity.
 

 


First awarded in 2005, the Golden Cevapcici Award is coveted by all. The highly sought after pile of plaster meat is generally awarded biennially (every two years) to the attendee who best exemplifies the Tenets of Turkey Run while particularly displaying year-round Spirit for Turkey Run. It has also served as somewhat of a “lifetime achievement award” for some of its recipients. The award is to be proudly displayed in the recipient’s home for the two year period before being returned to Turkey Run for the next presentation.

Rookie of the Year honors were first given in 2003. There are a number of qualities that can earn you these honors depending on the competition. While there have been uncontested recipients of the award, being the lone rookie in a given year does not automatically earn you the honor. One must still exhibit a satisfactory display of the Tenets of Turkey Run.

Also first awarded in 2003, the Cevapcici Consumption Award was created to encourage out-of-control consumption of cevapcici. Brian Kelley, its first recipient, secured the award by consuming more than 50 Serbian Sausages in less than 2 days. However, impressive single servings, or an exceptional appreciation for this quintessential TR menu item may earn you the honors as well.

The Intellectual of the Year was first awarded to one-time TR attendee, Vince Kus in 2004. This of course, is not awarded for true intellect, but rather for more or less, “marching to the beat of your own drummer”. In 2008, the award was renamed in honor of its original recipient and the greatest intellectual of our group to ever grace Serb Fest.

Most Improved, first awarded to Nutz in 2003, is only awarded upon there being an appropriately deserving attendee. Achieving this honor is the expected goal for any attendee earning a demerit his/her previous year. This precedent was set following Nutz’s 2002 demerit.
