Five-Time Olympian Kim Rhode to Visit Cabela’s
Stores in Hoffman Estates, IL and Hammond, IN
Acclaimed shooter to discuss career, sign autographs; appearance planned for Saturday and Sunday
Hoffman Estates, IL, Sept, 12, 2012 – Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, will host USA Shooting Team member and five-time Olympic medalist Kim Rhode at its Hoffman Estates, IL store Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hammond, IN on Sunday. Rhode will discuss her career as the world’s most accomplished women’s double trap and skeet shooter, and will be available for autographs and photos.
Rhode is the only American athlete to win medals in individual events in five straight Olympic Games, including gold in women’s skeet at the 2012 games in London. She earned gold in double trap at the 1996 and 2004 Olympics, and also is a six-time national champion.
Rhode’s appearance at the Cabela’s Hoffman Estates and Hammond locations also coincides with Cabela’s National Rifle Association weekend, which is held at the store and gives customers a chance to earn Cabela’s gift cards and merchandise by signing up for an NRA membership, among other special offers.
The weekend kicks off a tour in which Rhode will visit 10 Cabela’s retail locations across the United States. Attendees will have a chance to ask questions and learn about Rhode’s journey to the top of her sport.
“We are proud to host an athlete of the caliber of Kim Rhode – someone who not only represents the country with class and grace, but also shares Cabela's passion for shooting and the outdoors,” said Scott Williams, Cabela’s Chief Marketing Officer. “If you are a fan of Kim Rhode and Cabela's, this will surely be a weekend to remember.”
