France Holds Annual Turkey Calling Competition
What’s wrong with this picture, Las Vegas gets a Formula One race and France hold the annual “Turkey Calling” competition! That’s what The Mike & Carla Morning Show wanted to know this morning. But M&C did have audio with a few of the competitors this past weekend.
Now we applaud Carla Rea for giving it her best shot this morning. She let out her “turkey” call…not sure how she would have done in the contest! But it truly was original, although to be honest, we think it would have fell a little short of what judges were looking for.
Keep in mind that this was in France, nothing compared to what went on back in June in Mobile, Alabama. According to an article by the Mobile Sports Authority, callers from all over converged on the city in the south. Not sure how they run things in France, but in Alabama, they’ve been doing this since 1940! Thinking about competing next year?
They have a myriad of age categories for everyone to take part. In fact, they have “2 man team” category. This goes on for two full days…but the real good news is that the event in Mobile is absolutely FREE! And why wouldn’t be right?
It’s quite the event we’re sure, but to have this in France is really unexpected. Not sure of all the facts surrounding the European contest, but from the sound of it, it sure sounded like they were having fun. Oh, and never feel shy about calling into The M&C Morning Show to show off your turkey call…we would love to hear it.
But, do this first, at least listen to the segment from this morning to give you an idea of what you’re up against. You truly have to have a special talent…not sure what that would be, but give it a shot. We’re just a phone call away at 702-739-9636!
