The Teton County/Jackson Recreation Center will open its doors for a Thanksgiving Turkey Shoot and Food Drive from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Registration closes at 12:30 p.m.

The Turkey Shoot is an archery-only affair, and the Rec Center will provide all equipment needed. No outside gear is allowed. There will be four divisions: 8 and under, 9 to 12, 13 to 17, and 18 and older.

The entry fee is a donation of a nonperishable food item, which will help fill the shelves at the Jackson Cupboard.

Play sled hockey

Ski season is right around the corner (for the resort skier), but Teton Adaptive Sports is spinning up some indoor winter programming a few weeks ahead of the mountain rush.

This Sunday brings the second of nine sled hockey and adaptive skating sessions that the local nonprofit, which works with disabled athletes, plans to put on throughout the winter.

Sunday’s session will run from 1:45 to 3:15 p.m. at Snow King Sports and Events Center. Like the other eight sessions, Sunday’s is free.

Show up with warm layers, hiking shoes (or skates, if you have them) and warm gloves. Teton Adaptive Sports will provide sleds, gear and organization. Members of Jackson Hole Moose Hockey will help with the games and provide general tips and tricks for playing hockey.
