Turkey shoot sends 56 birds home with winners

Approximately 30 shooters participated in shotgun, pistol and rifle competitions during the annual Ken Johnson Memorial Turkey Shoot, held last Sunday at the Meeker Sportsmen’s Club shooting range. The Meeker Sportsmen’s Club gave away more than 50 turkeys, including two to Tyson Grant.
The annual Ken Johnson Memorial Turkey Shoot was held Sunday, Nov. 20 at the Meeker Sportsmen’s Club range south of Meeker. Approximately 30 shooters participated in pistol, shotgun and rifle competitions.
The club annually purchases turkeys for the winners, and this year 56 of the thanksgiving birds found their way home with successful competitors. The remaining 24 turkeys that were purchased were donated to the Methodist church, Social Services, and Chuckwagon.
The lucky winners of three new rifles from the annual raffle (held in conjunction with the sight-in days) were all from out of state this year.
This wraps up the programs for the Meeker Sportsmen’s Club for the year.
The next meeting will be Dec. 1 and the next big event will be the annual meeting and election of officers at the Jan. 5 meeting.
