Turkey Shoot

Tomorrow morning we're having a Turkey Shoot at Bethel United Methodist Church, 125 Bethel Road, Deville, LA  71328.  All funds to benefit our Mission Fund.

It's an old-style shotgun shoot, against a paper target with a small X in the center.  Closest shot to the X wins, and we've got prizes.  Donated by friends and loved ones, there are turkeys, hams, a game camera, skateboards, toys, candles, lots of things to give away.  Some of the ladies are holding a bake sale, and pulled-pork sandwiches will be sold.  There will be an old-fashioned lemonade stand, and I've heard that some folks may be selling baked goods.

The rules are simple.  Your shotgun, my shells.  Shoot at the target, the closest shot wins.  One shot for $3.00, two shots for $5.00.

The safety briefing starts promptly at 10:00 a.m. and the first round will go downrange shortly thereafter.  If you're in the neighborhood, drop by.  I'll have loaner shotguns available.
