Turkey Bowl (2012)

Event Type
Hat Tournament
Event Start
Event End
Seattle, WA

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. 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!


Registration for men has filled up, and new male registrants are being waitlisted.  There are still spots open for women players.


Questions? Email the Head Turkeys at .


Where: Magnuson Park on the synthetic turf fields!

When: Saturday, November 24th

Player sign-in is at 8am at the fields - you must register online before the event. The first game will start at 9am. Each team will play 4 games, and we'll be done before sunset.

Teams will be selected via a random hat draw at the fields.  Buddies will be accepted according to the Buddy Policy for Hat Events.
