The tradition. From the food stunts to get in starting in the fall, to the day tickets go on sale, to the logistics of getting things organized for the day—the floats, the event, the after party—it’s all part of the tradition of Wing Bowl. The people and the event. Nowhere can you find anything like this in the country.  The Wing Bowl is a special event for all who attend. It is a real man’s event. You cannot do the Wing Bowl one time. The first year your head is spinning, the second year you get to appreciate the event. So you have to at least do two Wing Bowl’s.

I will never forget year one, when my brother and I walked through the Wyndham Franklin and watched the event. It is that event that led us to Wells Fargo.
