2022 Pumpkin Shoot at The FARM 1780
November 20, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm$17.00
What in the heck is a pumpkin shoot?
It’s similar to a Turkey Shoot – a friendly shooting competition where the prize is typically food (a turkey, bundle of meat, etc…). For our pumpkin shoot, the prizes will be gift certificates to The FARM 1780 that can be used to purchase food from our produce stand or attend ticketed events hosted by The FARM. Prizes are as follows:
1st place $50 gift certificate to The FARM, 2nd place $30 Gift Certificate to The FARM, 3rd place $17 Gift Certificate to The FARM.
Why are y’all having a pumpkin shoot?
Growing up around The FARM, Brett (aka Farmer Flash) always looked forward to using the family’s Halloween pumpkins for target practice. It’s always fun to have a different type of target. This year we have an extra 25 pumpkins that didn’t find their home for Halloween, so we are turning them into 25 chances to see if you shoot like Buffalo Bill or Annie Oakley. It’s also a great way to get to know your neighbors and community.
Ok, I’m interested. How does it work?
You start by purchasing a pumpkin from the list below. Every purchase comes with an NRA B-8 scale target, a time slot, use of Farmer Flash’s Scoped Thompson Center 10/22 pattern .22 rifle with a locally made Innovative Arms suppressor, and 15 shots. You will arrive at The FARMstand 5 minutes before your allotted time and Farmer Flash will take you up to his shooting range where he will give a safety briefing and instructions on how the rifle operates. After that, you have the remainder of your allotted time to take 15 shots on the target from a distance of 50 ft (16.67 yds) either standing, sitting, kneeling, or prone. Once finished your target will be scored. All ties will be decided by the number of shots in the “F” ring (F-Ring stands for FARM ring, and replaces the traditional X-ring because, of course, we want to have a little fun with this!) If there is a tie at this stage the winner will be determined by the shooter who took the least amount of time to complete their target.
Each ticket includes the ability for a maximum of TWO observers to accompany the participant. Participants must be at least 8 years of age to shoot. All participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a legal guardian over the age of 18.
When is it?
Sunday, November 20th from 11 am – 4 pm.
