The Lions Club Of Madison has moved their annual turkey shoot to October this year, so as not to conflict with hunting season in November. That’s great news for hunters, who can now get in a few rounds of competitive target shooting the month before they head out into the woods after that deer.
The Turkey Shoot is one of the Lions Club’s major fundraisers, so come on out and have a good time while you support Lions Club scholarships and other community services. Mark your calendars for the last three Saturdays before Halloween, Oct. 11, 18 and 25, in the the usual place – the big field in front of Greene Publishing, just off South SR 53. Win your shooting round and you win a frozen turkey (or a gift card for a frozen turkey), all in plenty of time for Thanksgiving.
But don’t think the fun is over yet, because in November, it’s ready…set…gobble-gobble-GO for the club’s first ever Turkey Trot. If you plan to run the Turkey Trot on Saturday, Nov. 22, get out your running shoes and start training!
If you happen to be lucky enough to win a turkey in October, and then win the Turkey Trot in November, just think what great shape you’ll be in to sit down to that Thanksgiving Dinner a few days later and indulge. Stay tuned for more details as the dates get closer.
Happy shooting and happy trotting!
