Friends from Central Elgin Collegiate Institute gathered at Athletic Park in St. Thomas for the 40th annual "Turkey Bowl" on Saturday afternoon (October 7). The Turkey Bowl is a touch football game that the friends have played every Thanksgiving Saturday since 1978. Each year roughly 20-25 friends show up to play in the game.
Turkey Bowl Player Bob Hayes says the afternoon is one of the only times all year that some of them are able to get together.
Hayes says that they're proud to have kept the game going all these years.
Hayes says that they don't formally plan the game anymore everyone just knows to show up at the same. The game is even complete with turkey bowl themed jerseys and t - shirts.
