About the Turkey Bowl
All across the U.S., fall season is synonymous with football. America gets “football fever” as college and professional teams hit the gridiron each week. Thanksgiving marks a time each November when football really takes hold. Days off from work allow people time to enjoy friends, family, food, and football. Many football fans capitalize on their time off from work by getting together and playing in informal pick-up football games with friends. Over time these games have become known as “Turkey Bowls,” a salute to the Thanksgiving holiday food of choice.
Walter Jones’ Turkey Bowl takes this annual tradition to the next level by organizing the event into a competitive format for the great cause of benefiting charity. The 2nd annual flag football tournament will be held at Milton Frank Stadium in Huntsville, AL on November 17th and 18th, 2012. The tournament will be comprised of 16 teams, with 10 players per team. Each team is guaranteed to play in a minimum of two games (see game rules for additional details). All proceeds raised from sponsor will go to benefit HEALS, Inc.
