Globe — The Globe-Miami Gun Club will host two charity shoots in the upcoming months.
The annual Turkey Shoot will be held on Saturday, Nov. 18. This event is to raise funds to allow the club to purchase food items for the local food bank. Several events are scheduled; some are fun events such as shooting a round of golf with iron sighted handguns, golf ball driving, a poker shoot and other fun events. Accuracy events will include trap shooting, 5 stand sporting clays, 100 yard bench rest and the 300 yard bowling pin event. Winners of most events will receive a turkey; some events are just for bragging rights. Rules for each event will be posted at the event site. Costs of these events range from $3 to $5 per entrant. All events are divided into youth (16 years old and under) and adults.
The club’s annual Christmas Angel Clays Shoot will be held on Saturday, Dec. 16. This event is a trap and sporting clays shooting event only.
