Parent-child teams showcased their basketball, football, Frisbee, hockey and soccer skills at the annual Turkey Shoot in Spring Lake Park Nov. 22.
Put on by the Spring Lake Park Parks and Recreation Department for more than 20 years, the event is free, but nonperishable food donations are always encouraged.
This year, 131 pounds of food was collected for the Southern Anoka Community Assistance food shelf, according to Parks and Recreation Director Marian Rygwall.
Families will return year after year, Rygwall said. “It’s just low-key, competitive fun,” she said.
Top scorers in each age bracket won Cub gift certificates.
This year, those teams were as follows:
Alexander Keck and his father Travis, ages 5-7
Stephen Kesti and his father Greg, ages 8-10
Jediah Friesz and his father Urban, ages 11-13
Sadie Fisher and her father Greg, ages 5-7
Adrianna Fannemel and her mother Jenny, ages 8-10
Natalie Nusbaum and her father Joe, ages 11-13
