Fall Flag Football Time!

The Recreation District's annual Turkey Bowl is a one day 4-on-4 Flag Football Tournament with seven different age divisions. Rosters are limited to six-players and the games take less than 30-minutes with two 10-minute halves and only one timeout per team. See the rows below for the rules, and your team must know them before playing. There will be a brief managers' meeting at 8:00 am before the tournament begins.

Game time is forfeit time. We will run games early if possible, but we will not run late. We advise all teams to arrive at their field early. All teams must turn in a roster prior to playing and it locks when you play your first game. Please turn in the rosters at the blue tent by the garage door of the storage building. 

We do appreciate the efforts of the staff and officials at the Turkey Bowl, we ask that you do as well. This is a family event and we want everyone to have a great time. If you are going to give officials and staff a difficult time, you will be asked to leave. 

Round up your friends and sign up early!
