Turkey Toss Winners

Another year has come and gone. The turkey toss winners will have bragging rights at each and every family function for an entire year.

Senior Division Winner was Paul (trophy presented by the lovely Christie)
He was happy at as a lark at his first win, as evident in this photo, below. I love it!

A litle background on the senior competitors....Seniors do not play to pay. They toss not a "turkey" but a cornish hen (as does the children's division). Seniors receive a trophy but do not share in the money pot of the adult competition.Seniors are considered 55 and up for the Turkey Toss.

And the men's competition winner was none other than my Big Daddy, bringing home the trophy to the "Mafia" for the second time. I couldn't be prouder.
And the women's competition winner was Christie. Also a two time winner, though her first to have a trophy (we didn't do trophies the first year). I know it will be proudly displayed amongst her most prized possessions!
Big Daddy and Christie split the pot of money. No one has come clean on the exact amount. I think some folks are going shopping! Maybe Big Daddy can afford a better shirt....just saying.

Congratulations to all of the winners.

Enjoy the throwing montage after this post.

Oh, what fun. We started a tradition this year too. First Annual Thanksgiving Day Kickball Game. My family would have enjoyed the Turkey toss. We are just thankful we didn't have to call 911.
