Disneyland - Pop Warner, November 28, 1964

Happy December everyone! (Since this post is three days late lets pretend its November 28th again) Presented on November 28, 1964, this Certificate of Achievement in Good Sportsmanship was for players in the 6th National Pop Warner Disneyland Bowl Football Festival. The current Pop Warner Championship Tournaments are being played at the Walt Disney World resort starting this Friday (link).

I wonder where they played in 1964? I bet Jason knows. Speaking of Jason, according to his recent fine book "Jason's Disneyland Almanac" (get your copy here - link) on November 28, 1964 Disneyland's operating hours were 9am to 12am, park attendance was 24,190, the weather was a high of 69 and a low of 39, it was also a Date Nite! I love this book!

Nothing says "we love our kids" like repetitive brain trauma.

I don't have the 1964 Disneyland Bowl in the thesaurus; it doesn't seem to have been mentioned by the newspapers. I'll do a more refined search and see what I can come up with.

(P.S. Might want to change the post's title to 1964 rather than 1965.)

Hi Chris, "flag football" doesn't register with the Pop Warner folks!

Jason, you know i'm partial to 1965! Let me know what you find.

Neat item, love the graphics on that banner. OK, why the name "Pop Warner"? I've never known.
