Even if cold temperatures continue into New Year’s Day, the Williams Lake Sportsmen’s Association’s annual New Year’s Day Turkey Trap Shoot will forge ahead.

There will be 10-shot events, buddy shoots, Annie Oakley shoots and other novelty shoots. Also, beginner and novice events will be incorporated into the mix. A two-yard handicap for each win will be in effect.
