Becoming an Outdoors-Woman at Maine Sportsman’s Night

Yes, that’s right. You can get a head start on Becoming an Outdoors-Woman at Maine Sportsman’s Night on Saturday. Members of the board of directors of Friends of Maine BOW will be there. We’ll have a display with photos, newsletter, handouts and a raffle. Friends is a non-profit entity with a mission to raise funds to provide $100 scholarships for women demonstrating a financial need. Friends also provides reimbursement for our volunteer instructors workshop supplies, and lends other financial support to Maine BOW.

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman

We’re raffling a paid registration to Introductory Skills Weekend in September, 2014. The weekend includes lodging, meals, four workshops, equipment, mini workshops and activities. We’ll sell one hundred tickets at $10 each.

Workshops include Campfire Cuisine, Archery, Ropes, Kayaking, Canoeing, Map & Compass, Backyard Foraging and more. Winter Skills will be held in February. Those workshops include Ice Fishing, Fly Tying, Shelter Building and many more. It snowed the entire weekend last year but that didn’t slow these women down.

Archery is one of the first workshops to fill.

If you’re at Maine Sportsman’s Night be sure to stop in to say hi to Robin, Erin, Jenn and Sue, and take a look at Maine BOW.
