Traffic Regs Issued for Turkey Bowl

Police have issued special traffic rules for the annual Turkey Bowl Thanksgiving Darien-New Canaan high school football game, which is at Darien High School this year.


Due to the traditionally large turnout for the Thanksgiving Day football game between Darien and New Canaan High Schools, Darien Police advise that the following traffic regulations are being put into effect for the area surrounding Darien High School on Thanksgiving morning, November 22nd.

  • All traffic will enter the high school grounds via Noroton Ave. Vehicular traffic will not be permitted to enter via High School Lane or Nutmeg Lane. Officers will direct all vehicles to appropriate and designated parking areas.
  • All vehicles will be parked so as to facilitate and expedite the safe flow of
    vehicles at the conclusion of the game.
  • Vehicles will be parked on both sides of Nutmeg Lane and High School Lane
    facing away from Darien High School.
  • Motorists are asked to pay particular attention to posted “No Parking” areas. Previous experiences have resulted in illegally parked vehicles blocking driveways or restricting access to emergency vehicles.
  • Spectators are requested to carpool.

This is hilarious. Patch won't be covering the Rams, 8-1 and ranked 7th in the state, or the game, but they will tell us that "spectators are requested to car pool." Can somebody pick up a Patch reporter so they can go to the game and cover it. Oh, wait a minute, St. Luke's just had their undefeated season broken up.

We're working on plans to cover it.
Patch can't do Sports November 15, 2012 at 06:19 PM
It's alright NC Daily, Advertiser, and New Canaan News cover everything football related... probably get some writer from the patch that has no idea anyways.

Lots of Patch-bashing from you Ed. Yet you seem to keep coming back here again, and again, and again...

And yet, with all these options, you still come to the Patch...weird.
