The annual Turkey Shoot, sponsored by the Central Whidbey Sportsman's Association, is slated for Saturday, Sept. 17, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the CWSA range.

The proceeds from year's charity match will benefit WAIF, so participants are encouraged to donate pet food as well.

Tickets are $1.50 or four for $5, and shooters may enter as many events are they like.

This event is open to the public and club memberships are available. Ages 12 and under shoot in the junior class.

The CWSA range is located 2.5 miles south of Coupeville on Safari Street, just south of the corner of Highway 20 and Morris Road. The range is covered, so the Turkey Shoot will be held rain or shine.
