AUSTIN, TX — A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) announced that SIG SAUER will be the Title Sponsor of the 2019 Fall Festival, which includes the only all-ladies major multigun match in the nation, as well as a full-day multisport challenge. The Fall Festival takes place on Sept. 30 through Oct. 6, 2019, at Rockcastle Shooting Center in Kentucky.
SIG SAUER was the Title Sponsor of last year’s first-ever women’s USPSA handgun match that was held at the Fall Festival. “We’re excited to welcome SIG back to Fall Fest in a bigger way,” said AG & AG Founder Julianna Crowder. “SIG SAUER’s leading presence in the competitive and defensive spaces make the brand uniquely suited to be a part of everything AG & AG does on a national level.”
The Multigun Challenge will feature 8 stages that will challenge the competitor to engage a variety of targets over natural terrain. The Multisport Challenge comprises 8 stages that each showcase a unique sport, combining them all into one dynamic match.
On the days prior to the matches, participants can register for 3-Gun University and take firearms-focused and experience-level specific clinics that are instructed by industry professionals. The clinics will address skills, techniques, and strategies for the Fall Festival matches.
“The organization is responding to the demand for female-only opportunities where competitors can advance their skills,” says Crowder. “In addition to the education and match experience, we will also have our signature AG & AG events to allow participants to network with other women athletes as well as industry professionals to give them connections to seek out and support more local club and regional matches.”
Registration is open at https://www.agirlandagun.org/fallfest.
