This year's Kanza Bowl game between the MIAA Conference and the Lone Star Conference has been cancelled. Jim Parrish, of Parrish Hotel Corporation, has announced that, even though it succeeded in bringing athletes in from all over the Midwest, it wasn't able to sustain revenue from just the ticket sales and minor sponsors. We will continue searching for sponsorships to bring this event back in the future and thank the MIAA and the Lone Star for the past four years.
The Jr. Kanza Bowl is continuing as planned and is currently in search of youth teams from all over to come in to play at Hummer Sports Park. We have planned a whole weekend of activities for the teams and have lots to announce as it comes up. Check back to our Jr. Kanza Bowl Page as it gets closer for more updates.
We will also be continuing the Kanza Bowl BBQ, this year sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society. This event will be one of the first contests after the Royal and should generate some good buzz in Topeka.
