PHOENIX — Women interested in learning about or increasing their knowledge of shooting sports and hunting are encouraged to attend the inaugural National Outdoor Women’s Weekend (NOWW) March 7-8 at the Ben Avery Clay Target Center in Phoenix.

The event, hosted by the Valley of the Sun Chapter of Quail Forever, will feature classes, seminars, clay target shooting range time, new product demos, wild game cooking, and opportunities for fun and recreation, as well as a “Saturday Evening Extravaganza” happy hour and dinner.

“We’re excited to bring this first-of-its-kind event to Phoenix,” said Renee Wittrock, NOWW chairwoman. “Our goal is to bring women from Arizona and across the country to meet and learn with other like-minded women about firearm basics, personal development, sporting clays shooting, upland game bird hunting, dog training, wild game cooking, and more. The instructors are some of the best in the business.”
