Traffic Bowl 2020!
Are you ready for Traffic Bowl? We didn’t think so, but you better get ready!
For the past 28 years, Oregon ITE has invited students and professionals to meet in person to enjoy dinner and drinks while schools answer trivia questions and compete for oversized checks and a trophy. COVID-19 may have said “Too Damn Bad!” to in person events, but that can’t stop the Traffic Bowl. This year we are throwing out all the rules (because why not, It’s 2020.)
Mark your calendars for November 19th and plan to join us for the 29th annual Bill Kloos Traffic Bowl.
What’s different this year:
What’s the same this year:
The event will run from 6:00 - 8:00 PM, starting with a 30-minute happy hour and set-up period to sort people into their Traffic Bowl teams.
So mark you calendars, brush up on your trivia, and don’t forget to register for the 29th Annual Bill Kloos Traffic Bowl.
