07-14-2012 Women's Group Empowerment Series: Lock & Load - A Trip to the Rifle Range
Chair: Stephanie Luh, CFA
The CFALA Women's Group invites you to the shooting range! Learn to fire a shotgun with certified instructors and shoot clay targets. Understanding gun safety, correct handling of firearms, and improving your shooting skills are some of the objectives of this event. According to the National Sporting Goods Association, female participation rates in shooting sports increased by 46.5% between 2001 and 2010.
"Shooting is a sport that certainly requires more brain than brawn. Keen sight, breathing control and trigger squeeze are among the qualities that make an Olympic-caliber shooter.... Shooting is one of the few collegiate sports where men and women regularly compete against one another—and women are often winning." - WSJ, 2/23/12
This event is part of the Women's Group Empowerment Series. These upcoming social events are designed to boost the confidence of women in the CFALA community by encouraging women to venture out of their comfort zones and form powerful networks with strong relationships. The group is not meant to separate female investment professionals from men but rather distinguish women as successful leaders and provide a solid support system. All members of the CFALA community are invited to attend.
Time: Saturday July 14th 9am - 12pm. You are welcome to stay afterwards to shoot more rounds, but you will be charged an additional price for target usage.
