AUSTIN, TX — A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) announced that the 8th Annual National Conference Presented by SIG SAUER will take place April 30-May 3, 2020, at the Cameo Shooting and Education Complex in Grand Junction, Colorado. This marks the first time AG & AG will host its annual gathering outside of the State of Texas.
“With membership coast to coast and border to border, we are optimistic that this move will allow more members to access the training,” says Julianna Crowder, AG & AG Founder. “We were honored to be invited to this world-class facility. We are proud to bring our program to this area, and we look forward to being a strong advocate for 2nd Amendment rights in this battleground state.”
Cameo Shooting and Education Complex is owned and operated by Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), which has a long-standing history of supporting and promoting shooting sports. The 2,000-acre state-of-the-art facility provides a multitude of opportunities for training in all shooting disciplines. It was established by the State of Colorado to introduce future sportsmen and women to the benefits of spending time outdoors.
“The mission of AG & AG is hand in glove with Cameo’s mission of outreach to women and families,” says Walt Proulx, Manager of the Cameo Complex. “Hosting the flagship event for an organization that is as large and well-known as AG & AG at our facility is a major accomplishment.”
The AG & AG National Conference Presented by SIG SAUER is expected to draw more than 400 women from around the country, in addition to 100 instructors and staff members. Participants will range in age from 13 years old through mid-70s, and training will be tailored for beginners through expert-level marksmen. Sessions will include training on all firearms platforms, as well as archery, martial arts, gunsmithing, lectures, and more.
Registration for the event, ELEVATE 2020, opens September 1, 2019, for all AG & AG members. More information can be found at AGirlandAGun.org/conference.
