Sportsmen's Association Gets Grant to Fund Women's Classes

On Friday evening, the Sheridan County Sportsmen’s Association (SCSA) celebrated receiving a grant from the NRA. The money is to be used for equipment for new women’s classes. Until January of this year, there had not been any classes specifically for women. The SCSA board amended their by-laws to create a Women’s Activities Director position. Sherri Johnson took on this role and has been working with Grant Director, Kathy Lundberg, to oversee how the grant is spent. The grant totaled 8,000 dollars and has gone towards guns, safety equipment, and ammo. Lundberg talks about the NRA’s purpose for giving away the money.

Daniel Kucera, president of the Sportsmen's Association, says that, “ Several ladies approached a number of the board members to see if there would be interest in having women's dedicated activities…”. One of the activities the organization hopes to be putting together is a Women’s Pistol League, which is a goal for the women shooters. Lundberg explains the classes the association will be putting on for women.

Sherri Johnson remarks, “ There was an overwhelming amount of support for this program.” The SCSA hopes to get more women involved now that there are classes for them. Lundberg thinks that the more they can get women into shooting sports, the more they will bring their families along to learn about gun safety as well.
