Good times are a guarantee at the annual Chedabucto CC Turkey Shoot, this Friday, November 30, 7:00 PM. The four frozen birds — patiently resting within the freezer at the rink — are awaiting their new owners.
Thirty-two rocks per bird at $3.00 per rock or 2 rocks for $5.00 gives us a time line of approximately 30 minutes per bird with the event concluding around 9:00 PM. You can slide; you can use the stick; you can bounce rocks of the sideboards; whatever works to get your rock as the closest one to the turkey at the end of the 32 rocks. Keep in mind that this plastic-wrapped frozen bird ain’t resting still since it is being bumped around the ice sheet.
Curling skills are not a requirement to win the bird. A pinch of luck along with unintentional assistance from those rocks ahead of you will give you the prize.
All are welcome to attend. All you need is clean sneakers or curling shoes so as not to soil the ice. Bring your family, your friends or that brother-in-law or uncle that you don’t really care for; what the heck, the more the merrier.
Hopefully you will be able to attend this annual social event.
