Wicomico Yacht Club Turkey Shoot
Another turkey shoot this past weekend at the Wicomico Yacht Club. Sorry the say neither the wife or myself were able to win prizes this time. Competition was pretty stiff too! Pictured below you'll see the targets we use there. It's a 4" X 4" piece of poster board and the idea is get at least one pellet closect to the little dot in the center.
The top picture is one of my targets. Would you believe that is a second place target? Look close and you will see 2 pellet holes on either side of the dot, however the dot is still intact. The shooter that won this round had completely punched out the dot on his target and only had nine pellets on the card! The number of pellets don't really count for anything but the more pellets you put on the card the better chances you have of winning, at least in theory.
It's mostly just luck! But we have a lot of fun and spend the day with people we whose company we enjoy. The good news is, I did get enough second place points to tie the leader for over all winner in March. We will just have to see how that goes.
Ahhhhh---- the agony of defeat.
