The JROTC annual fall fundraising Turkey Shoot will be hosted, today, Thursday November 16th from 8am to 6pm at the shooting range at Ball High School. The annual JROTC Turkey Shoot has been an ongoing tradition for the past 10 years.

Ms. Lewings proudly displays her target hoping her score will win her a turkey!

Students, teachers, administrators, and the community are invited to come out and participate in the Turkey Shoot. Each contender will get three shots for the price of five dollars. Each contender will use an air rifle and will shoot at a paper target, and every 30 minutes the best shot will be awarded a “nice and fat” frozen turkey supplied by Arlan’s market. A bake sale is also hosted on the second floor on the way to the rifle range. Students are allowed to participate in the Turkey Shoot, but only after their classes.

Mr. Mark Kelso counts up the scores of the latest shooters at the JROTC turkey shoot located on the 3rd floor of Ball High School.

The Turkey Shoot is a very loved fundraiser that brings the community and Ball High family together. So come out and support the JROTC in their annual Turkey Shoot and Bake Sale fundraiser!
