Delaware –-(Ammoland.com)- A few slots remain for the 2010 Delaware Becoming an Outdoors-Woman weekend set for Aug. 27 – 29, with registration closing Sunday, Aug. 1.

The BOW program provides women the opportunity to learn skills that encourage and enhance participation in outdoor activities, such as hunting and shooting, fishing and boating, and non-harvest activities.

Delaware’s BOW Weekend features four half-day training sessions that begin on Friday afternoon. Participants have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of course offerings during each of the sessions. Included among the many hands-on courses during the weekend are target archery, surf fishing, camping, shotgun shooting, basic boating, canoeing, fly-fishing, saltwater fishing, nature photography, and various other outdoor activities. The instructors of these courses have been selected for their expertise as well as their ability to provide instruction in a safe, supportive and non-competitive atmosphere.

This workshop is for you if:

  • You have never tried these activities but have hoped for an opportunity to learn.
  • You are a beginner who would like to improve your skills.
  • You have some experience but would like to try your hand at new activities.
  • You are just looking for camaraderie with like-minded individuals.

The cost of the three-day program is $200, which includes lodging, meals, instruction, and the use of all necessary equipment and supplies. Registrations will be accepted until Aug. 1, 2010. No refunds will be given for cancellations.

While Becoming an Outdoors-Woman is aimed primarily at women, it offers an opportunity for anyone 18 or older to learn skills that allow them to participate in numerous outdoor activities. Since the first BOW was held in Wisconsin in 1991, this exciting international program has expanded to 46 states and seven provinces with more than 80 workshops offered each year.
