Turkey Shoot

ts2014.jpgEvery year during Thanksgiving week the Deer Park Parks and Recreation Department host its annual Turkey Shoot. On Tuesday, November 21 the Jimmy Burke Activity Center will be turned into a cornucopia of fun. This is an excellent opportunity to have family fun while competing for the grand prize of a turkey to take home for Thanksgiving dinner. To keep the competition fair Turkey Shoot is divided into 4 age groups. Each group, with the exception of the adults, will compete in archery and riflery (B.B. guns).  Adults will be competing in Archery only.  In each section of the competition, the participant will take 3 shots. Every shot counts in Turkey Shoot so be sure to come with your “A” game that night. A bullseye is worth 10 points, so the best possible score is a 60. 

Each year Turkey Shoot has grown. The first year the Parks and Recreation Department hosted the event it was outside. Whether rain, snow, sleet, or shine Turkey Shoot will happen as it is held indoors at the Jimmy Burke Activity Center, located at 500 W. 13th Street.

Don’t be fooled, Turkey Shoot is not just about the competition, but about spending time with your family.  We want to make sure that your entire family will enjoy Turkey Shoot.
