Free throw contest where one child and one parent/guardian shoot free throws. Each team will be put into a grade division (based on the child's grade). Each player shoots 10 free throws each to have a combined total. Adults can shoot with more than one child. The top team in each division will win a turkey! (One turkey per family) This is a great way to hang out with the family and have some FUN competing against your neighbors and friends! Participants are welcome to show up the day of the event!
