Back in June, Orvis Adventures’ Jody Frederick sent out an email to female associates here at HQ asking if we’d be interested in a ladies’ trip to Orvis Sandanona Shooting Grounds. Having been hooked during the 2-Day School I took a year ago, my answer was: “INNNNNNN!”
This was my best trip to Sandanona yet. It was inspiring and energizing to embark on the adventure with thirteen other women from departments across the company on what some might consider a traditionally male pursuit.
During our excellent lunch, Rod & Tackle Merchandise Coordinator and Analyst Christine Penn convinced me to invest in the new Women’s Clays Vest. It made for a nice souvenir for the day, and a great excuse to plan more trips. Fortunately, I won’t have to wait too long – the Orvis Sandanona Game Fair & Country Sporting Weekend will take place September 21st and 22nd. You know I’ll be there. Thank you to each participant AND to the wonderful staff at Sandanona – it made a for a fantastic and memorable day!
