Turkey Bowl benefits Marathon County Humane Society


By Bonnie Shelton

Mosinee (WAOW)--It's hard enough to bowl a turkey--that's three strikes in a row--when bowling. So how about bowling with a turkey? At Pat-N-Chrissy's 153 Pub in Mosinee, you can try your hand at bowling on an icy lane with a frozen bird.

The 3rd annual event held Saturday benefited the Marathon County Humane Society.

Bowlers tried different techniques to try and knock down the pins. "I found out last year it has a lot to do with the wrist," said Joey Vanouse. This is his second year at the Turkey Bowl.

Pub owner Chrissy Weinbauer said although the Turkey Bowl raises some eyebrows, once you toss the bird down the alley, you're hooked.

Organizers hope to raise over $1,500 dollars for the humane society along with food and other necessities for the shelter.
