Decatur, Illinois – The Decatur Turkey Tournament will return for its 52nd year in 2022, November 22, 23, 25 and 26 at Stephen Decatur Middle School of Decatur Public Schools. This year there is a new sponsor for the event: Land of Lincoln Credit Union.
“We are incredibly honored to take on the role of title sponsor of this great tradition,” said Robert Ares, President and CEO of LLCU. “Investing in the youth of our community is a big priority for LLCU and the Decatur Turkey Tournament is a great way to do that as it provides them with an incredible showcase opportunity.”
As the main sponsor of the Turkey Tournament for the next five years, Land of Lincoln Credit Union will sponsor two $100 raffles each night for those in attendance to participate. LLCU will also donate $1,000 to the winning school.
Another new feature this year is the price of admission to $7 per person. Middle school students attending the games will not be permitted entry without a paying adult.
Again this year, all participants will be screened with metal detection rods upon entering Stephen Decatur Middle School. This security measure aims to ensure the safety of all participants and spectators of the Turkey Tournament. However, security screening with chopsticks may increase the time it takes to enter the tournament gates. We ask that all participants plan accordingly and allow extra time to enter the tournament before the scheduled tipoff times.
