Event Description

2011 Varsity Turkey Shoot
October 8, 2011


What is a Turkey Shoot?
Each team will consist of five members. One member may be an adult leader. Each shooter will shoot twenty-five clay pigeons. The shooter will fire one round at each target. Targets are provided; However each participant must provide his own shells and gun. Sharing of guns at the event slows down the process.  Shells will also be available for purchase through the council while supplies last.
