The Road to Fall Fest

I’ve been perusing my A Girl & A Gun Shooting Journal this week and I came upon “The Road to Fall Fest” and my notes from last February. It really made me giggle thinking about my own personal road to Fall Fest. I love how the journal lays out how to prepare for the match and I shake my head at myself because my preparation was a bit different.

Family Safety Brief at the Range

Seconds before the IDPA match was about to go hot in surrounding bays, AG & AG Founder Julianna Crowder turned to see two little kids playing on the top of the long-range impact berm. Immediately, in a voice that she has never used in her life, she yelled, “GET OFF THE BERM, GET OFF THE BERM, GET OFF THE BERM!” The entire range came to a halt as people in every direction turned and looked at her, and in shock as they saw the kids slide down the dirt. When the RSO approached the two dads, they apologized and said, “We just turned our back for a minute.” Somewhere in between the safety briefs that occur at the range, parents can create your own family safety briefing.

Brownells Fall Fest Teaches Eloise Vogel Her True Strengths

Eloise Vogel had barely handled a rifle or shotgun until three weeks before AG & AG’s Brownells Multigun Fall Fest Match. But it turns out she is the mother of World Champion pro-shooter, Robert Vogel, and future mother-in-law of pro-shooter, Jessica Hook, who encouraged her to register. Eloise says, “The thing I learned the most about myself is that I can do more than I thought I could do. I’m stronger than I thought I ever was. I’m very proud of myself for stepping up to something major. If you would have told me a few years ago that I would be shooting an AR or a shotgun I would have told you that you were nuts,” she laughs. “I’m proud of experiencing something new that not a lot of people are able to do or choose to do.”
