91st Annual Turkey Bowl !!!
Come out and join us for the 91st NBGC Turkey Bowl celebration.
In 1931, Robert Buehler and Dick Valentin took a group of kids playing football in the mud of
Revere Park, formed them into teams- and led them to our first Thanksgiving Day championship.
The Turkey Bowl has become the Clubs most important tradition- where players, families, alumni
and the community come together for football and soccer games, hot cocoa and donuts.
The action starts the night before at the Pep Rally- where posters, predictions and cheerleaders
rev up the rivalries and celebrate all that the NBGC has brought to its members and their families for
The Pep Rally schedule, Turkey Day team matchups and other Turkey Bowl events can be found in articles below.
So please come and join us and share the fun and memories with family and old friends.
Then- 1930's Football Now- 2010's Soccer
On Saturday the game room will be festooned with photos and Monkeyshines from the past 90 years.
