22 Packs brought over 400 Cub Scouts and their families to Jim Miller Park for the annual Turkey Shoot. Everyone enjoyed the climbing wall, crafts, field games, and shooting sports, especially the lucky Scouts who won a turkey for their family!

The District Committee would like to express our thanks to Steve Helbling, RJ Kolencik, and Jeff Starnes for organizing this fantastic event. Thanks also to BSA Troops 2096 and 520, both of County Line United Methodist Church, for donating their time as cooks, game support, range assistants, event setup, and event take-down. Thank you to Anthony Gaito for being the Turkey Shoot Health & Safety Officer and special thanks to Brian, Doug, John and Tim for setting up the field.

This event would not be possible without the dedicated volunteers who served as Rangemasters: Clint Hauser, Brian Huang, Zach Hulet, Mike Kozar, Ed Mahan, Douglas Sanders, Adam Stensland, Sharla and Chuck Stewart, and Tim Szepkowski. Thank you Rangemasters!

Thank You All for making the Turkey Shoot a safe, fun, and memorable day for our Silver Comet Cubs and their Families.
