(KAIR)--Despite the numbers on the scoreboard, there were only winners Friday morning, as 93.7 FM again hosted the annual "Turkey Bowling" competition, with Atchison City versus County in the 2023 matchup.

Competing outside the radio station studios, at 5th and Kansas, in Atchison, were Atchison City Commissioner La Rochelle Young and Atchison County Road and Bridge Superintendent Joe Snyder.

Both competitors, with frozen turkey in hand, courtesy of Atchison's ALPS grocery, rolled three sets, with Snyder taking the victory, 21 to 13. However, when both spoke at the competition's end, it was clear that competing against each other was a win for both:

Spectators, representing the City and County, looked on as the turkey was tossed, with one area resident, Carrie, winning her own frozen turkey, courtesy of ALPS, by choosing Snyder as the winner, prior to the start of the matchup.
