Don’t miss the Cypress Bowl

on Monday, 16 November 2020. Posted in News, Local News, Sports

Cypress Adventures announces its all-in-good-clean-fun flag football showdown, “The Cypress Bowl.” Scheduled for Friday, November 27th, from noon until 5 p.m., this first-of-its-kind fundraising event features team-favorite tailgating spots, a flag football game that you can be a part of, and a food truck rodeo. Join us at Byerly Park, 700 Russell Road in Hartsville for hometown fun with good, old-fashioned, spirited rivalry, the Power of Play exhibits, and so much more!

“We thought it would be fun to have the traditional rivalry of a Clemson vs. Carolina game, closer to home, since the real teams couldn’t play,” said Aimee Cox-King, founder and Executive Director of Cypress Adventures. “Everyone around here is so passionate about their teams - their orange and purple, or their garnet and black - and everyone misses tailgating. We decided to rent out a portion of the park, and the parking lot, so everyone could come and enjoy some socially distant tailgating. Grab your mask, and you can play flag football, coach, or enjoy the food trucks! Of course, we thought of other strategic ways to raise money, like the opportunity for you to buy a referee’s call, become a coach, a team captain, or sponsor a player! It should be a lot of fun! And a great way to work off the turkey and gravy!” All proceeds will benefit Cypress Adventures.
