SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. –-( It’s OK to shoot like a girl, and it’s definitely OK to win like one too.

That’s the message, and spirit, behind a ladies-only shooting class scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, August 8 and 9 immediately following the U.S. Practical Shooting Association’s Western Pennsylvania Sectional weekend match in Hollidaysburg, Penn.

Taught by Team SVI member and 2005 Women’s Open National Champion Doni Spencer and Megan Francisco, the 2009 Women’s Open National Champion and member of Team Limcat, the class is an advanced competition course that will focus specifically on improving the students’ practical shooting competition skills.

“This is a unique opportunity to work directly with two of the top women in the sport of practical shooting. Both Doni and Megan have a wealth of experience that students can really benefit from,” said Harry Foltz, USPSA Area 8 director.

The class is limited to just 12 ladies and registration is first come, first serve. The cost is $300 per student, plus lodging. A special discounted rate at the match hotel, the Comfort Inn of Duncansville, has been arranged for students. All instruction will take place on the ranges of the Hollidaysburg Sportsmen Club and students are responsible for their own ammunition and equipment.

As an added bonus, both Spencer and Francisco will be competing in the weekend match and ladies attending the Western Pennsylvania Sectional are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to squad with the instructors.
