Have you ever wondered how far you can throw a turkey? How about trying your hand at a Turkey Obstacle Course or a turkey-themed sprinting competition? Those questions and more will soon be answered as Kansas City Kansas Community College prepares to host the annual Turkey Games.
The KCKCC Turkey Games will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 19, at the Wellness and Fitness Center on the KCKCC campus, 7250 State Ave. The event is free and open to the public.
Among the events at the Turkey Games are Pilgrim Broom Pushin,’ the Turkey Obstacle Course, Turkey Tossin’, Turkey Rollin’ Bowlin’, Pilgrim Sprintin’, Turkey Tailin’ and Turkey Shootin’. No actual turkeys will be used in the competition. Medicine balls will represent the turkeys.
All activities must be attempted to get a final score, and be prepared to go outside for a few of the activities. Monetary donations will be accepted to benefit the KCKCC Student Emergency Fund. Donations of nonperishable food items will be accepted for Harvesters.
Registration for the 2014 Turkey Games can be completed at the Wellness Center front desk or by calling 913-288-7610. Individuals can register up until the start of the event. For more information on the event, contact Joseph Mundt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
