Annies are where three shooters mount their guns, the first calls for the bird and shoots. If she or he hits, no one else can shoot and she or he is safe. If the first shooter misses, the second shooter shoots.

There is no sign up fee for the event, however, it costs $6 per shoot to enter.

Contestants have a chance to win meat prizes such as turkeys, ribs, sausages and bacon.

The event is being held at the gun range located at 920 Bond Lake Road.
