Bowl a turkey for a chance at a turkey


Think Turkey and Bowl Canada are teaming up to get Canadian families rolling with the first ever Turkey Bowl, with $17,500 in prizes to be won.

Taking place February 18-20th, Canadians are invited to visit their closet participating bowling centre for a chance to win.

The challenge?

Bowlers must score a “turkey” — known in bowling as three strikes in a row in a single game.

The first 250 Canadians to bowl a turkey and submit their entry will receive a $50 VISA gift card and will be entered in a draw, along with all others who submit their entry, to win one of ten $500 grocery gift cards to be used towards their Easter turkey dinner.

Over 225 bowling centres will be participating in the challenge from coast-to-coast. To submit an entry, bowlers simply snap a picture of their “turkey” on the digital scoreboard and share to a public Instagram or Facebook account with @CanadianTurkey and #ThinkTurkey tagged. Or, they can upload it via the entry form at

Darren Ference, chair of Turkey Farmers of Canada, says they hope the event becomes an annual challenge that Canadians can look forward to each February.

“Turkey dinners and bowling have a knack for bringing friends and family together, which makes it a natural partnership,” he says.

Bowling has experienced a recent surge in popularity with four different games played in Canada – fivepin and tenpin bowling, which are played nationally, and candlepin and duckpin, which are regional games in the Maritimes and Quebec respectively. The third weekend in February is the busiest weekend of the year for most bowling centres, and the Turkey Bowl promises added excitement for Canadians planning some fun at their local bowling lanes.
