Chamber to host No Bird Turkey Shoot fundraiser
BAY MINETTE — The North Baldwin Chamber of Commerce will host its first-ever “No Bird Turkey Shoot” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 22 at Three Brothers Arms, 36603 Alabama 59, Stapleton.
There will be 20 rounds of competition featuring up to 20 shooters per round, including two women’s only rounds and one children’s only round (ages 14 and under, must be accompanied by an adult at all times).
“We are excited to be hosting our first ‘Turkey Shoot with a Twist’ and we promise that no birds will be harmed in the making of this event,” said North Baldwin Chamber Executive Director Ashley Jones Davis. “We live and play in rural North Baldwin County where hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation is the day-to-day norm; we’ve taken our traditional outdoor giveaway and combined it with an old favorite – a Turkey Shoot – to create an event that every outdoorsman or woman or child can enjoy.”
Reserve your shots now on ticketleap.com for $60 per shot or go through the North Baldwin Chamber’s calendar section at northbaldwinchamber.com (direct ticket purchase link – case sensitive: northbaldwinchamber.info/TurkeyShoot ). Only 12-gauge shotguns will be allowed with improved cylinders. No extreme modifications. Guns will be inspected at check-in. Ammo will be provided. Limited guns can be checked out for use at the event. Everyone must check in with a valid ID and pre-purchased ticket, and sign a waiver.
Instead of winning a frozen turkey or meat, guns (valued up to $800) will be awarded to the first-place winners in each round. All other shooters for each round will go into a drawing for an additional outdoor prize (valued up to $350).
“We pride ourselves on delivering high quality events in our community that match the interest of our residents,” said Jones Davis. “Our annual outdoor giveaway is one of our most popular fundraisers each year, and now we have added a friendly competition with greater odds to win than in the past.”
