Chase the Ace starts Friday

Sarah Ebeling | Managing Editor

For years, the Turner County Charity Youth Pheasant Hunt has been working to do good things. From teaching youngsters about hunting to raising money for different causes, hosting concerts by county music stars, the members of the board strive to give back. 

And now, in hopes of continuing the tradition of raising money and giving back, the group is trying something new. 

Chase the Ace, Catch the Queen and other card games have been a unique and successful fundraising event for many different groups. And beginning on Friday, March 6, Chase the Ace is starting at Kelleys Bar in Parker. 

Byron Nogelmeier, Turner County Charity Youth Pheasant Hunt board president, said that the idea came about as a way to fundraise for the group. He noted the board, made up of himself, Jim Kasten, Bill Werdel, Mike Schmidt, Corey Gall and Brian Weier, hope the funds raised will help the organizers do more for the community and also offset expenses. 

“This is a different approach to help support the program,” said Nogelmeier. “I’m most excited to see how much interest this will generate and where it will go.” 

To participate in the game, anyone can purchase a ticket at Kelley’s Bar from 5:30- 7 p.m. All of the tickets will go into a box and at 7:15 p.m. a ticket will be drawn and that ticket holder will get to draw one card from a 26-card deck. Fifty percent of total sales will go to the Turner County Charity Youth Pheasant Hunt and then from the remaining 50 percent, 10 percent will go to the weekly winner (whose ticket was just drawn) and the balance goes into the jackpot for the following week. 

Nogelmeier noted they chose not to use a 52-card deck because it would make a possible 52-week commitment. 

The board will still need help from their corporate sponsors, who step up to the plate every year, and also from the public who attends the annual concerts, but Nogelmeier is hoping this will be one more way they can raise money. 

And as far as concerts go, this November’s performance has been booked and the group is excited to announce that Darryl Worley will be performing in Parker on Saturday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. Worley has produced multiple award winning songs and is famous for many such as “Have You Forgotten”, “A Good Day to Run” and “Sounds Like Life to Me.”
