I have an exciting announcement to make, I am starting the Tennessee Valley Chapter of G.R.I.T.S.!!! The acronym of course is Girls Really Into Shooting. Many of you already know of my passion for empowering women and the desire to introduce them to shotgun sports with my organization and sponsorship of Lipstick N Lead and the Limestone Ladies League. I am excited to have as our home club, Limestone Hunting Preserve and Sporting Clay's. Wayne Mitchell, the owner, is a master instructor in 3 disciplines of shooting. He also raises and trains championship bird dogs. Limestone also features all the games you could ever want to shoot, trap, skeet, 5-stand, sporting clay's and flurry. Wayne also has all the common upland bird hunts, European Pheasant Hunts, and duck hunting.
But I also want to share some of the other wonderful places and venues to shoot. Imagine a morning of shooting at the Orvis Wing Shooting School in Sylacauga and then having an afternoon at the spa at Purcell Farms. Or shooting a round of clay's at Lower Wetumpka Sporting Clay's and then trying your luck at the local casino!
But the most important thing is to share the camaraderie of shooting clay's together and then sharing a good glass of wine afterwards! It is all about friendship and fun and we don’t keep score, so whether you shoot registered targets or have never shot before, you are welcome to join us!
We will be having our first meeting in May at Limestone Hunting Preserve and Sporting Clay's. If you are interested in having fun and making lasting friendships, drop me an email at Lmickels@cochranmickels.com. More information can be found at www.gritsgobang.org and a membership form can be filled out and downloaded.
