Please join us at the newly renovated Warren Watson Shooting Grounds at the Valhalla Hunt Club for the kickoff event of our newly formed GRITS chapter — Girls Really Into Shooting. Our focus is on having safe fun with shotguns and getting to know other ladies who also enjoy shooting. Please go to the GRITS website, GRITSgobang.org, for more information and to sign up for GRITS! The only rules (other than safety, of course) are, 1) must be a Girl over 21, 2) No scorekeeping.
Warren Watson was a wonderful person and terrific shotgun coach in the Denver area for many years. After his passing in June 2020, several of his students and friends (spearheaded by Mike Mills) created a charitable foundation, Clay Connections, to incorporate a fun activity around shooting clays with law enforcement and under-served youth. Clay Connections Foundation revamped and improved the shooting grounds and equipment to be used by groups such as GRITS, as well as the charitable activities.
Rocky Mountain GRITS will gather together the first Monday of every month, weather permitting – so get it on your calendar!
After shooting approximately 50 – 100 rounds, we will enjoy social time with beverages and snacks.
At this time, participants will need to bring their own shotgun (but many of us will share our shotguns with those that may not have one) and provide their own ammo. Soon, ammo will be for sale at the range. Extra ammo will also be available for the kickoff event. If you would like to come and observe and/or join for the social fun, please do (but still please RSVP)! Eye and ear protection required for all attendees, shooting or not.
Please email and/or call Anne Draper for more information and to RSVP:
