Meet the Hudson Valley GRITS
Lisa Roberge has been a GRITS member since August 2015. She had been shooting trap and skeet for a couple of years then discovered sporting clays and it was love at first break! After shooting with her husband and his friends for a while, she was looking for a group of women to shoot with. A google search leads her to the GRITS website and she joined on the spot then connected with the Hudson Valley NY Chapter. Soon after joining, Lisa volunteered to help coordinate the chapter shoots.
Most recently, Lisa has become a certified shotgun instructor by the NSCA (National Sporting Clays Association) and NSCA Referee.
The chapter has grown steadily with shooters of all levels in attendance and over the past few years has had the opportunity to shoot several private and public courses in NY and Connecticut including Mid Hudson Sporting Clays, Fairfield County Fish & Game, Saint Hubert’s Lodge, Tamarack Preserve and Bristol Fish & Game, Ten Mile River Preserve, and Mashomack Preserve.
What’s her favorite thing about GRITS? “I love seeing the smiling faces of GRITS gals when they crush targets on the course and then listening to all the lively chatter at lunch after we come in from shooting. I’m so very proud to be a part of a group of like-minded women.”
Born and raised in New Orleans, LA, Lynn moved to the Hudson Valley in 1988 when she married the boy next door. Very early on, her husband, T., enrolled her in shooting lessons at his hunting club in Pine Plains, NY so they would be able to shoot together. That’s when she caught the bug. She continued shooting off and on with his male friends but always felt like a “third wheel”. When the announcement came about a ladies group called GRITS was shooting at Sandanona, she jumped at the chance. The rest is history. Shooting with like-minded women is just plain fun!
When not shooting, Lynn loves to knit, hike and fish. She has also taken many classes at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY to feed her passion for cooking. Her day job is being Vice President of Devonshire Holdings, Inc., a financial and restructuring firm she and her husband started in 1989.
