Second Annual Turkey Bowl Recap 2015

On October 3rd teachers, teaching aides and principals came out to knock a few pins down, and to try and win a few great prizes. What everyone did win a a whole lotta fun.

We had about 60 people come out to Rev’s Bowling Alley for an evening of Pizza, beverages and bowling. I’d like to say that competition was fierce but I have to say there was a lot of rust that was being shaken off in first set of frames. That said, it was not without about 10 people coming close to bowling a “turkey” (3 consecutive strikes by an individual). The actual winner of our turkey was Rosendo from St. Francis Xavier bsed on our draw – This would be the second year in a row when the turkey went to St. Francis Xavier. Come on people someone from another school has to win the turkey next year!

I don’t think Rosendo has ever cooked a turkey before, but he won a turkey and all the fixings, for this weekend’s feast.

 

During the first game, people with the highest scores won a $10 Coffee Card. The big winner of our Canucks Tickets Draw went to Maria C. of St. Mary’s in Vancouver, and all she had to do was show up! She won 2 tickets to the Minnesota game coming up in February.

This year’s winning team of the Coveted Turkey Bowl Cup went to Holy Cross Elementary. This was the team with the Highest team average score. All individual hoisted the cup and poured themselves a cup of victory which they savoured into the evening.

IMG_9070 IMG_9093Make sure you come on out next year for the Third Annual Turkey Bowl in October 2016. It’s a great evening out with friends and colleagues doing an activity that everyone has a fair chance at winning at.

The best suggestion for next year’s Turkey Bowl came from Pasquale, “I think you need to hand out a second prize of a Cornish Game Hen.” Good one Pasquale. I’m seriously taking it into consideration.
