Since 1968, a Thanksgiving Tradition for Eli’s President, Marc Schulman, has been the Turkey Bowl: a game that started in Skokie near Devonshire School and latre moved to Cunliff Park in Glenview. With a number of injuries this year, the game became a scrimmage followed by another tradition–lunch at Irving’s for Red Hot Lovers in Wilmette.

Turkey Bowl 2009 was more of a scrimmage than a game. No score, a few passes and then lunch. Participating in the game are Mark Reiderman, Mike Ruchim, Harry Kramer, Harold Jesser, Stuart Scheter and Eli’s Marc Schulman.
