Castle Lake Ranch VFD tanker truck fundraiser


Run for your lives, turkeys!* The annual turkey shoot at Castle Lake Ranch Volunteer Fire Department is this Saturday, Nov. 7, at the firehouse way down on the far end of Bear Creek Road. Participants can bid on many excellent silent auction items, purchase raffle tickets and join in the fun of this popular kick off to whitetail season.
The turkey shoot opens at 9 am. Organizers aim to complete 70 rounds by 4 pm, giving all shooters plenty of opportunities to win a turkey.
Several target rounds will be designated as "high value" rounds with high value prizes. There will be a higher entry fee for these rounds.
Bake sale items will also be available beginning at 9 am.
For the silent auction, "We have more than 100 merchandise items and gift certificates donated by Bandera, Pipe Creek, Boerne and Kerrville area merchants and businesses," said Francis Davidson from the fundraising committee. "Items include a shoulder mount for someone's trophy buck; a round of golf, with cart, for 4 at Flying L Resort; jewelry, fine dining and fast food certificates, handbags, patio equipment, pet products, art, hair styling, collectibles and much, much more."
Raffle prizes this year include a guided deer hunt for two at the H-H Ranch sponsored by Heidi Wyatt, a Smith & Wesson AR15 sport rifle, $200 cash (for the non-hunters), and prizes donated by local merchants.
Tara Norris of Nonnie's Honey Pot food service will be providing her usual quality hot food so that shooters can keep their strength up throughout the day.
If you can't make it to the turkey shoot, raffle ticket sales tables will be set up in Bandera on Friday, Nov. 6, at Lowe's Market. You need not be present to win.
This annual fundraiser helps the department purchase and maintain vital equipment.
* No turkeys are actually injured at a turkey shoot!
