Bob Burns Dakota Bowl XLIII
Bob Burns Dakota Bowl XLIII "Return to the Mac", returned to the Mac THREE times!!
Although three nights of Dakota Bowls are a first for this system-wide fundraiser, we still had a great time gathering as a community for lots of fun! We had over 300 kids participate in the football and cheer camps in the morning. Great job to all of the kids that participated and a special shout out to the winners of the football camps!
The Dunk Tank was so much fun as members of our staff were dunk! The line never stopped and neither did the laughs! The Knights Way parade went through a packed parking lot of tailgaters showing their Knight’s Spirit! Due to weather conditions, we did miss the Sky Divers jump during pre-game and the Guarantee Roofing Fireworks at half time but we are excited to see them next year!
At Dakota Bowl 2.0, we were able to present this year’s Woody Drey award to Nate Dally, a Dakota Bowl committee member that has been instrumental in raising money for the system and a volunteer who is willing to help wherever he is needed. Congratulations again to Nate Dally! Another congratulations goes out to our lucky raffle winner of $5,000 cash Julie Lindner and the 2nd place winner of the $500 Diamond Room gift card and $500 Scheels gift card went to Jesse Johnston.
Dakota Bowl 3.0 ended with a 14 to 12 win over the Rough Riders! Way to go KNIGHTS!
A big extended O’G thank you to everyone that made Dakota Bowl 1.0, 2.0 AND 3.0 a huge success! To all of the students, players, fans, families, businesses and committee members THANK YOU!
