    NRA WOA: The Last Day Comment
    Gregory Morris, 5/9/12 5:51:02 pm
    Well it's the last day of WOA. It's been a completely amazing week. I slept in really late because we had been up so late last night. Once I dragged myself out of bed, I hung out in my room and chatted with people until lunch. A bunch of other people went and toured Mammoth Cave this morning, but I forgot to sign up. Oops.

    After lunch we were given the option of going and shooting 3-gun or sporting clays. As much fun as I had shooting 3-gun, I went with sporting clays. I think I might want to get more involved with it once I get home. I'm not ruling out maybe competing in pistols, but I think shotgunning is more for me. It's a very zen, relaxing shooting sport for me. You just relax, calm your mind and body and they just trust you body's natural instincts. I truly love it. Plus destroying clays rocks!

    So, I headed out to the sporting clays course and shot. I got the chance to shoot with Elizabeth, Sandy, and Carol. They are great instructors. They change one thing and I went from missing a bunch to nailing it right after the adjustment. I'm definitely going to find some places to shoot near Tampa. If anyone knows of any or any instructors, please let me know.

    We all then came back to the lodge for a needed break from the sun and bugs. Dinner was a cowboy cookout at cowboy town. We dressed up in our country western shirts, cowboy hats, and boots and enjoyed a nice cookout surrounded by the SASS cowboy town. After dinner a few people spoke about the wonderful week we have had. The instructors were praised and given thanks for the amazing job they did.

    Also, we wanted to thank Anne Marie Foster. She is in charge of NRA Women's Programs. She is incredible. She planned this whole event: bringing participants, instructors, and staff all together as well as working with companies to give us some great gifts and prizes, putting together a fashion show, and working with the Rockcastle staff to make this inaugural event would be a week none of us ever forget.

    The friendships we've made and the lessons we've learned we're very much worth the cost and the long trip. I plan on writing a summery after I get home. But for now I have to find a way to fit all my stuff into my 2 huge suitcases which is going to be a challenge seeing as I'm leaving with more than I came with. So I'm going to get on that.

    Look for that post coming later this week.
