Making Progress on the New Turf

The Bowl's construction crew is working hard to get the field ready for installation of the new artificial turf. Here, the weeping tile is being installed. It will then be covered by 14 inches of gravel and then turf!

Our May 16 Bowl Blitz was a major success! 68 football players and volunteers representing the Hilltops, Valkyries, high schools, KFL, and Saskatoon Minor Football blitzed 172 downtown businesses to gather donations for the Bowl Field Goal Campaign. An additional 31 volunteers helped throughout the day with the volunteer and donation tables, BBQ, logistics, social media, pep rally, and photography.

Over $377,000 was raised for the Bowl Campaign! Huge thank you to all the volunteers and supporters, and thank you to our BBQ sponsors: Prairie Meats, Saskatoon Co-op, Old Dutch, and Coca-Cola.
