From November 12th to the 16th, JROTC is hosting the annual turkey shoot which rewards first to third place winners a turkey. Students will be able to attend from first to eighth period, and can fire five shots for two dollars using a pellet gun.
The objective operates simply. The maximum total score is 50 points, and the most a single shot can yield is 10 points. The goal is to make as many accurate hits possible to place high enough for the turkey prize. Since last year though, fourth place winners have also been given a rubber chicken as their takeaway. The Turkey Shoot has witnessed gradual rise in popularity though, and concessions have been planned to entertain those who watch or participate.
“We will be having movies playing, and concessions with popcorn, slushies, some candy, and chips,” junior Brendan Bishop said. “It’s something we do every year for the school, and a way we can raise money at this time of year. It’s a way of us showing thanks by having students come out and have fun.”
