Cabela's is always putting on events during the year and often people tend to overlook an important part of the outdoors.
What is it? Well, it is the fact that the outdoors may be male dominated but that certainly does not mean that women can't enjoy it as well. In fact there are many women in the outdoors that exceed the achievements of the men.
Cablela's knows that this holds true and is always looking for more ways to get women involved.
They are having a Ladies event all of their own for the women that enjoy the outdoors and may not have the ability or know how to get involved more with it.
Recently Diane Schneider sent me this to bring this to the attention to all those interested in the outdoor community.
Cabela’s Hoffman Estates will celebrate the growing number of women enjoying the outdoors with Ladies Day Out, April 6, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This bi-annual event focuses on the growing population of women enjoying the outdoors in Illinois.
Product specialists and industry experts will be on hand to answer questions and provide recommendations while offering suggestions to help ladies make the most of their next outdoor adventure.
“Ladies Day Out is a celebration of women in the outdoors," said Art Hall, General Manager. “Cabela’s is proud to offer women the best gear, but also the expert knowledge to pursue their outdoor interests.”
With more than 5 million women participating in shooting sports, an increase of 46.5 percent since 2001, this growing demographic will enjoy our classes.
According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation Firearms Retailer Survey Report, 2011 Edition, 61 percent of retailers surveyed saw an increase in female customers in 2010 over 2009.
