Phoenix – December 9, 2019 – Valley of the Sun Quail Forever Chapter is proud to announce it will host the inaugural National Outdoor Women’s Weekend (NOWW) on March 6, 7, and 8, 2020, in Phoenix, Arizona. This event is dedicated to the inclusion of women in the shooting and hunting sports and will feature classes, seminars and range time, as well as opportunities for fun and recreation.
“We are excited to bring the first of its kind event to Phoenix,” said Renee Wittrock, co-chair of NOWW 2020. “NOWW intends to bring women from across the country to participate in a shooting and seminar event that includes everything from personal development to dog training to wildlife cooking.”
The event commences Friday, March 6, with a golf event and the opportunity to meet NOWW’s sponsors, volunteers and other participants. The following Saturday and Sunday mornings will begin with personal development coaching from Deborah Dubree, elite performance expert and strategist whose clients include NFL players, pro golfers and C-suite executives.
Participants will have the chance to shoot sporting clays and get coached on shotgunning skills by pro shooter and Quail Forever life member Anna Van Nostrand, of Anna V Outdoors. Tina Dokken and Simone Schara – who are Franchi shotgun pro staffers and firearms safety instructors – will present an introduction to upland hunting. Noted dog trainer, author, and inventor of the Dokken Deadfowl trainer, Tom Dokken, will discuss dog training.
