Sept 25/08 - Bubba Bowl
Back toHomeFeature Article - September 25, 2008 Bubba Bowl and Bauder Road By Jeff GreenThe Sydenham High School Bubba Bowl, already a premier event at the school, will be bigger than ever this year as a BBQ and concert by Bauder Road are being added to the festivities.
It will actually be more than a BBQ, as sides of beef are being smoked for the occasion and there will be homemade chili for sale as well. The food and music will take place on the lower field, starting at 5:30. Bauder Road, a popular Rock'n Roll band that plays music from the ‘60s and ‘70s, and happens to be almost entirely made up of Sydenham High School alumni, will be playing until 6:30.
At 6:45 the Sydenham Eagles Junior team will take on the Regiopolis juniors, and at 8:15 the Sydenham senior team will also play Regiopolis. The junior teams at both schools have won their first games this year, while both senior teams lost their opening contests.
The Bubba Bowl is dedicated to the memory of Alex “Bubba” Turcotte, a Sydenham student and football team member in the 1990s who died in his sleep while attending grade 12 at the school.
From its inception it has been an overwhelming success, drawing up to 1,000 people to the Senior game. The new events this year are designed to extend the party and to raise money for permanent lighting for the football field.
The Bubba Bowl will take place on Friday, October 3. For further information, contact Karl Hammer at Sydenham High School, 613-376-3612.
