Christmas dinner just a shot away

Nanaimo and District Fish and Game Protective Association hosts its annual turkey shoot.

A steady hand and eagle eye is all it takes to go home with a Christmas bird or ham at the Nanaimo and District Fish and Game Protective Association’s annual turkey shoot.

The club has hosted the fundraiser for more than 30 years, offering trap shooting, rifle silhouette and archery competitions, a concession, a crafts and bake sale, a turkey board and turkey wheel. More than 750 prizes were awarded last year.

The event runs Dec. 10-11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., each day.

All proceeds help fund the club’s environmental, conservation and educational projects.

The Fish and Game Club is at 1325 Nanaimo Lakes Rd. Please call 250-754-2846 for more information.
