This one-day hat tournament hosted by DiscNW is a Thanksgiving tradition that gives Ultimate players the opportunity to run off some of those second and third helpings of stuffing while giving something to charity. Althought this year we'll be running to make room for the upcoming holiday. Donations go to NW Harvest, an organization focused on helping disadvantaged families with a basic necessity: food.
In addition to playing some Ultimate, the tradition at TurkeyBowl is to chow down on a scrumptious turkey & fixins dinner while watching the poor suckas who played well enough to be in the finals do their thing.
Volunteering to bring food for the dinner secures you a space for this tournament which fills up every year!
We have reached capacity for this year. If you'd like to be considered for a late spot, feel free to register by Friday at Noon and you'll be put on a waitlist. You'll be informed if you are moved from the waitlist before Friday at 5pm.
