On Thanksgiving morning, starting at 10:00 AM at The Plunge, Point Richmonders will once again gather for the Annual Turkey Shoot, a parade of people, animals, costumes bells and whistles, that circles the village and ends with a shot of Wild Turkey bourbon whiskey and recitation of an epic Thanksgiving poem that gets a stanza added each year. For a video of previous Turkey Shoots, see http://www.ibabuzz.com/westcounty/2011/11/24/point-richmond-its-the-wild-turkey-shoot-gobble-gobble-gobble//. All are invited.
