A Day for the Ladies!

It has been a special year for the Kent Rod & Gun Club as we celebrate 65 years of being part of the Putnam County community.  In addition to our regularly scheduled club events, we were proud to feature, for the first-time,  a Ladies Day at the Range on Sunday, September 15th, prouder still that it was a huge success!

Thanks to the teamwork from club members, all who attended enjoyed a great day of sporting activities and...a fabulous luncheon.    Support, in the way of brochures, catalogs and more, from Kimber, Glock, Ruger, Springfield Armory, Smith & Wesson and  Designer Concealed Carry Handbags helped to send each lady home with a gift bag full of goodies.  

The ladies excelled in each phase of the day's activities which included target shooting, skeet and some impressive archery thanks to Flying Arrow Sports who generously provided Bows for the event.

Taking some time out from their hectic schedules to join us were Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell, Kent Town Supervisor Kathy Doherty, Former Congresswoman Nan Hayworth (who is running again), Kent Town Council Candidate Janis Bolbrock and Putnam County Sheriff Don Smith.

It was a very good day and we look forward to doing it again, next year!

The clubhouse was all decked-out for the event!
