CAMDENTON, Mo. — The new Camdenton Laker Basketball Coaches' Show, produced by Lake TV, and hosted by Ron Duggan is filmed live at the new Funky Buffalo Trading Company and Brew House in Camdenton. Laker fans are invited to stop by at 1:30 p.m. every Tuesday and be a part of the taping of the show that will be “all about the Laker Basketball Program.”
The Funky Buffalo Trading Company and Brew House is a new restaurant opened by Ron’s wife Nicole Duggan. The restaurant is located on Highway 54 in Camdenton across from the Camdenton City Hall and will feature breakfast and lunch and gourmet coffee in a relaxing atmosphere. “We are thrilled to be hosting this new show and we invite folks to come in and talk about Laker basketball, and ask questions,” host Ron Duggan invited.
Duggan and Co-host Laker Varsity Coach Jared O’Quinn will talk about what is going on with the Camdenton Laker Basketball program including information about the boys and girls ages seven through Varsity teams. One guest player and one guest coach will be spotlighted every week.
“We hope the show will boost attendance at the basketball games by showcasing what great teams we have,” Duggan said.
The Duggans are, in many ways, a basketball family. Ron’s son Mark was an all-conference basketball player at Camdenton High School (and an all-state football player). Ron also lead the Ozark Youth Basketball League for four years; it started with 180 players and when he retired there were 525 kids playing. Duggan recently started an eight-year-old girls traveling team, on which his daughter Brooklyn competes. He also coached an AAU traveling team. Before moving to the Lake, he coached and refereed for city youth leagues in Kansas City where he and his dad, the late Richard Duggan, also helped to renovate an old church gym for an inner city basketball league.
O’Quinn has been a Camdenton coach for eight years, two of those as head coach. Before that he coached in Macks Creek. He too has a family of basketball players.
"The show is a forum to talk about Laker basketball and the many great things that are going on in a program that is going to put Camdenton on the basketball map," Duggan said. "The future looks bright for Laker basketball."
