As a veteran of 17 years in the shooting sports, law enforcement and military markets, I’ve been to my fair share of shooting ranges and events, trade shows and seminars. However, I’ve never participated in a team at a Three-Gun Match…that is until now.
Tomorrow my husband Eric, brother-in-law Stuart and nephew Ryan will trek down to East Granby, CT to participate in the Seventh Annual Three-Gun Match Set at the Hartford Gun Club sponsored by the Shooting Industry Masters. This three-gun shooting match features handgun, rifle and shotgun events. Our team will be participating in the Industry Class, which is for everyday shooters. The other class that will be participating is the Open Class for those who want to compete against professional shooters. I like to think of myself and my teammates as better than average shooters, but I don’t think we’re quite ready to be competing against the professionals yet.
Our schedule for the next few days will be busy. Friday and Saturday we’ll be participating in all three events. Each night there is a reception. Friday night features the Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence Awards Reception. Two of our clients, BLACKHAWK! and SIG SAUER, are nominated for several awards. BLACKHAWK! is nominated for Accessory of the Year, Hunting Product of the Year and Safety Product. SIG SAUER is also nominated for Accessory of the Year, as well as Rifle of the Year. Keep you fingers crossed for both of them! Saturday night wraps up the event with a Masters Awards Banquet.
It should be a very fun event and I’m excited to see how my team and I do. If you’re attending, be sure to be on the lookout for us. We’ll be wearing Laura Burgess Marketing branded T-shirts and ball caps. Check back here over the weekend for updates about the event and to find out how we fared. We’ll also be posting updates through our twitter account throughout the weekend so be sure to follow us to keep up to date on our progress!
