On November 19th 2011 was the first annual Turkey Bowl, where we played flag football and ate a potluck lunch. I’m pretty sure that it was a success! Everyone that came, from 12th graders to kindergartners, enjoyed it. We played football all day long, only stopping for food. We got all our energy out early on, giving our parents a chance to socialize and also giving them a break from a routine, tedious day.
The lunch was fantastic as you can see. The specialties included turkey with gravy, many salads, and sweets like pecan pies. I’m surprised that we managed to continue playing afterwards! All that food should’ve made us too full to move. Thanks to all the parents that cooked or brought something to eat.
Despite that, an unhappy event occurred that day, looming over the fun we had. A father was brutally pushed down in an unorthodox fashion. Unfortunately, he fractured his collarbone. Thankfully, he will be okay and that will be a lesson for us next turkey bowl. We shouldn’t take the game too seriously. It’s not like we were playing in The Super Bowl! Nevertheless, it was an interesting event that I hope will become a tradition at ACS!
