Tunnel Hill, Georgia, September 7, 2022– The Sisterhood of the Outdoors (Sisterhood Outdoors), in partnership with Beretta USA, will host its debut Shotgun Experience on September 24, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Mayville Gun Club, W2868 Farmersville Road, Mayville, Wisconsin. Olympic shotgun champion Kim Rhode will be at the event.
Since winning her first Olympic gold medal in 1996, at the age of 17, Kim has gone on to win 14 National Championships, six Olympic medals and 50 international medals on five continents, including world cups, world championships, world cup finals and Pan American games. She became the first American in any individual sport to win six Olympic medals in six consecutive Olympic Games: three gold medals, one silver and two bronze medals. During her Olympic career, Kim has also competed in all three shotgun events: double trap, international skeet, and bunker trap.
Sisterhood Outdoors and Beretta partnered with the Mayville Gun club and also with WAYSE – Women and Youth Sporting Education. The entry fee includes three boxes of shells per person, one round of sporting clays, one round of trap and the overall Beretta shooting experience at the five-stand area. This event showcases Beretta’s A300 Ultima, A400 Xtreme Plus, A400 Xcel Sporting KO, 686 Silver Pigeon and 694 Sporting shotgun. Attendees will get the opportunity to shoot these guns at the 5-stand station. Fiocchi will provide ammo for this experience.
Lunch will be provided by the WAYSE -Women and Youth Sporting Education at the gun club. There will be a silent auction during the event to benefit the WAYSE non-profit.
Amy Ray, president of Sisterhood Outdoors, said, “We have a saying at Sisterhood Outdoors: ‘Give it away to keep it.’ This means we are of service to others in the outdoors. We want to ensure a great future for all shooting sports programs. It is important for all outdoor organizations to work together for the greater good and support one another. We hope by leaving a donation to WAYSE, we can make an impact at the local level. We believe there is no better way to experience the quality of Beretta shoguns than by putting them in the hands of lady shooters, so having Kim Rhode join us is so exciting. We want to connect with other women in the outdoors and bring them a shooting experience that builds confidence while learning all about Beretta shotguns – one shot at a time.”
Along with Beretta USA, other sponsors include Fiocchi Ammunition, MEC Outdoors and the Mayville Gun Club.
