    NRA WOA: Golf and Shotguns Comment
    Beth Morris, 5/4/12 12:38:23 pm


    I'm actually writing this before dinner today. Today was a really relaxed laid back day for me. This morning almost everyone else went zip lining and horseback riding. From what I heard they had a lot of fun and enjoyed doing these events many for the first time. It was great that the NRA Women's Outdoor Adventure offered so many options to try new things and experience things we might not have ever had the chance to try before.

    I, on the other hand did something much less adventurous. I hit up the complex's driving range. It was just me, so Blake the course pro gave me a lesson. I hit some balls with a driver then he had me try with a 7 iron. I had informed him that I can't hit irons very well at all. He adjusted my stance a bit and gave me some helpful hints. I lined up my shot and just went for it. I completely surprised myself and hit a perfect long shot.

    In all areas, every single instructor I have encountered here had been beyond amazing. My day just got better and better as it went on. After lunch, it was Group B's turn to go to shotguns. I'd like to again tell you how much of a difference it makes with receiving the proper training from amazing instructors. They put chap-stick on my left eye of my shooting glasses and it made seeing the flying clays so much easier. Now if I can just remember how to do it myself in the future. After some warm up shots in the 5 stand, we set off in groups to the sporting clay course. I was matched up with fellow group member Angela, and head shotgun instructor Elizabeth Lanier.


    Let me just repeat Elizabeth's mantra: "If they fly, they die!" And boy did they! Angela was an amazing shot, and impressed me with her pairs shooting. But I amazed myself. I was destroying clay after clay! Elizabeth is super fun and so positive and encouraging. She made adjustments with my stance and gun placement and I saw immediate results. It was so much fun and we laughed and hit clays and just laughed more. Did I mention it was fun? Shooting with women is so positive and encouraging. Everyone just lifts each other up and cheers when someone succeeds. I've honestly never experienced something like this before and I am so thankful to be here.

    -- break --

    So I'm actually back from dinner now and I thought I had ended my writing for the day, but there were a few more adventures to be had. First let me tell you why I love my B group ladies. They are loud and funny and inappropriate and smart and just all around wonderful. We laughed and joked during dinner and took some pics of us being crazy. We really have enjoyed each other's company and by the commotion we make, I'm sure everyone else can tell too.

    After dinner there may or may not have been a covert mission. I'm not confirming or denying a possible off road golf cart trip to sneak a peak at the cowboy town. I know nothing. But if it's true there may have been an incident with one woman thinking she could bring her wine with her on this very bumpy trip and it ending up covering her and a golf cart. Someone called alcohol abuse and we all just lost it yet again. By the way, I'm really good at off-road golf carting. It's probably from all my years of off-road Jeeping.

    The lodge bar has become a great hang out spot after our long days. These ladies sure love their wine and it's a good thing there's a whole winery on the property, cause I think we'd run out otherwise.


    Lots of good stuff happening tomorrow, so that's all for tonight. I'll keep you posted.
