On November 19, 2016, over 300 neighbors came together for a common cause, participating in various contests (Turkey Bowl, Chili Cook Off, and Cornhole) as part of our 2nd Annual Turkey Bowl. The weather held out, with Colorado’s first snow fall still present, temps warmed up to 50 degrees – it was a perfect day.
RCK Charity hosted six (6) flag football teams, eight (8) cornhole teams, and four (4) chili cook off entries. Nearly $1,500 was raised, which will be used to provide “holiday” support for 10 children and their families in our communities.
Rocky Mountain Cornhole out manuevered, out passed, and consistently scored faster than the rest of the field, earning them the Turkey Bowl Champion title. Matt and Cal won the Chili Cook Off by a landslide. This was Cal’s first contest entry, but his love, encouragement, and perseverance simply put, won “Everyone” over. His “pot” was held $50+ more than 2nd place. His efforts were successfully networked online and throughout the crowd. David Tebben and Basil BJ Torres whittled down the field and took home the customized Colorado cornhole boards donated by Colorado Cozy Corner (thanks Sammy and Monica Parah).
