Every year, on October 29th (the day of the founding of the Republic of Turkiye in 1923), we proudly fly the Turkish flag at Calgary City Hall. This is a very momentous occasion for us as both young and old members come to watch the raising of the flag.
Come join us this year once again!
We are very excited this year to be celebrating the 100th year of the founding of the Republic of Turkiye by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

We always want our kids to be involved with 29 Ekim celebrations. Although this is a formal event, we invite our youth to also accompany their parents and come to the ball. We will have have another room for the kids complete with an entertainer, food and an adult to keep an eye on them so their parents can enjoy the evening.
Oner Kesebi was declared our Champion at our First Annual Father's Day Tavla Championship on June 18, 2023.
There were more than a dozen competitors all vying to put their name on the brand new trophy.
The round-robin format was used and after going undefeated in 6 matches, Oner was able to beat the only other undefeated player, our Secretary Burak Caglayan.
There is already tension building to see who will be crowned Tavla Champion for 2024.
