MYERSVILLE, MD – November 22, 2010 – Musket Ridge Golf Club collected over 1,000 pounds of turkey to donate to less fortunate families in the area with the annual Turkey Shoot for the Needy on Saturday, November 20, 2010. Participating golfers contributed frozen turkeys that Musket Ridge gave to the Frederick Community Action Agency.
David Swales, managing director of Affinity Management (www.affinitymanagement.com), which runs Musket Ridge, said, “I’ve been a US citizen for 2 years after moving from the UK over a decade ago. I’ve been impressed by how much Americans help those in need, especially in tough times. I’m delighted that Musket Ridge celebrated its ninth anniversary by helping needy families put a meal on their table for Thanksgiving.”
The Turkey Shoot for the Needy began at 10 am on Saturday, November 20th with a shotgun start. The scramble format tournament included cart, range balls, prizes, and lunch – fresh homemade chili and hot biscuits from Musket Ridge Executive Chef Kyle Roberson.
