Jefferson Ruritan Club – “Jefferson Ruritan Turkey Shoots”

Jefferson Ruritan Club – “Jefferson Ruritan Turkey Shoots”

The Jefferson Ruritan Club will be conducting its annual Turkey Shoot every Friday from Oct. 3rd thru Dec 5th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Jeffersonton Community Center, 5073 Jeffersonton Rd., Jeffersonton, VA 22724 (intersection of Rtes. 802 & 621, east of Rt. 229).

Now in its 28th year, this is the longest running Turkey Shoot in the area. This is a fund-raising event: the premier source for this organization. It converts patron target shooting fees into community service donations; 100% of proceeds go to scholarships, and local public service organizations and charities. Operators are thoroughly trained; guaranteed fair competition; women and teens have successfully competed here; great target practice for the hunting season; ideal training opportunity for young and new shooters; fellowship and civic support. Thousands $$ worth of beef, turkey, ham and other food items will be awarded. Free targets as door prizes. Snack bar every night. Range is 30 yards. Following national trends to protect water sources, Winchester 12-gauge steel #7 shot, is supplied as part of target fees. Steel shot can be used safely in any gun with choke designated Â?modifiedÂ? or larger. For both safety and fair competition, other designations, or barrels tighter than 0.69Â?, may not be used. All barrels/chokes gauged on site. Max 36-inch barrel length; no scopes.
