Tom Bowl Bids

We often get questions about how the Tom Bowl contacts the various Universities and Conferences we invite to the games.
This is what a Tom Bowl bid looks like.

The first part of the bid is the letter of invitation.

This is the letter sent to the WAC conference to inform them that the Tom Bowl has invited Hawaii to play in Tom Bowl XIX



This is the letter sent to Ohio State inviting the Buckeyes to play in Tom Bowl XIX

With the letter of invitation we also send them a sample game-day program which looks like this:

And a couple of pages inside

And then the bids are sent. (It was cold the day I sent these).

And then we wait for the responses or hope they show up on game day.
