Turkey Shoots

It's that time of year again for the annual fundraising turkey shoots. First on our schedule is Saturday November 15th at the Wicomico Yacht Club on Collins Wharf Rd. The shoot starts at 12:00 and the shoot is open to the public. There will be two money rounds for cash prizes and eight additional rounds for food prizes. Also there will be at least one and possibly two scatter cards which also net cash prizes to the winner.this will be the first of four shoots held at the club. The three remaining shoots will be held after the first of the year. Points are awarded for 1st & 2nd place winners for all four shoots and after the last shoot the top two point winners receive gift certificates to the WYC restaurant.

Second on our calendar is the Fairmont Volunteer Fire Co. in Somerset County on Sunday November 30th. We ahave attended this shoot for several years and have always had an enjoyable time. The ladies of the Company keep the kitchen busy with oyster sandwiches and soups as well as deserts and beverages. FVFC has in the past had some very nice prizes including jewelry, food and every year the final round of the day is a gun prize.

Other shoots are available throughout the winter and as I become aware of them I post the information. Hope to see you there.

If there an age limit for Turkey shoots? Under 18? 18 or older? Thanks

As of yet there is no age limit. As long as one can handle a gun safely they are allowed to shoot. At all of the shoots I have attended there are responsible parents and others adults willing to assist the younger shooters. Safety is a prioity. Anyone displaying carlessness I'm sure would be admonished quickly.
