Annual Shrine Club Turkey Shoot returns

ETNA GREEN – The 18th Annual Shrine Turkey Shoot returns this year.

The event will be held the weekend of October 15-16 from 10:00am to 4:00pm at Beeson’s Gun Range, located at 8994 West County Road 25 South, Etna Green (just off Crystal Lake Road).

Last year we raised over $7500.00 in just two days due to local sportsmen and their families.

The annual shoot is to support the Kosciusko County Shrine Club. The Kosciusko County Shrine Club, celebrating 76 years,  is best known for the annual trip for 3rd graders to the “Shrine Circus” (with literally over a 60 thousand students, since 1957, taken free of charge, as a conservative estimate!).

In addition, the club supports many other local and national philanthropic organizations. The Turkey Shoot is a fantastic way for the community to support the local Kosciusko County Shrine Club. The public is welcome. Bring the family for food, fellowship and plain old Indiana fall fun to support the Shrine.

Shoot a paper target, bring your own gun or we can provide one, shells are provided. Shoot for Maple Leaf Farms Duck, Serenade Foods Chicken, Wal-Mart turkeys, or cash. Children, age 14 and under, shoot a .410 to win a .410 provided by Hunting and Tactical Solution of North Webster.

Participants may come for a shoot, or a fantastic sportsmen’s “Silent Auction”.
