    9:00 am - 3:30 pm

    This is a day-long workshop for any woman with a physical disability who would like to experience rifle shooting and archery in a safe, supportive environment.

    You will learn safe and proper handling of guns and bows as well as basic terminology. Participants will then break into groups where they will work one-onone with an instructor and volunteer to make needed adaptations, so each woman can be as independent as possible based on her comfort level.

    Each group will spend quality time learning both rifle shooting and archery (see schedule on next page) with lots of fun practice time on the shooting ranges (including a 3D archery range for those interested and time permitting). We will conclude the workshop by discussing options for further practice and opportunities for applying their skills beyond practice shooting.

    Lunch will be provided. We will gather by the clubhouse to enjoy some wild game prepared in Dutch ovens.

    This is a FREE workshop. Generous efforts have been made to raise funds so financial barriers are not a factor preventing any woman from participating in this exciting outdoor experience.
    If you have transportation needs, please inform us when you register so we can provide some assistance with travel arrangements.

    If you know of a woman with a physical disability who may be interested in broadening her outdoors experience, please pass on this information to her. No prior shooting experience is needed, and we will work with any physical disability. Because of the individualized instruction, space is limited to 15 women, so register early to ensure a spot.
