For a great thanksgiving tradition.
Go to local bowling alleys and ask for 12 old pins, they should be able to give you some as they get beat up fairly often.
Also get a 1 16 pound frozen turkey and drill 3 holes in it where they would be placed in a ball. Same game as human bowling. Have 3 contestants bowl a frame. You may want to put down cheap black plastic (at any hardware store) for an alley. Also please have someone at the end of the pins to catch the turkey or you may put a nice hole in a wall. For a trophy, you may be able to make a turkey out of an old bowling ball (body) and pin (as the head). Use feathers and a red sock as a goblet and paint the ball with winners names. This sell is obviously the job for any turkey!
