Howie checks the community calendars at the websites of the local news media just about every day. Today he laughed aloud and read aloud this one from WCLT’s site:
Women in the Outdoors
Event Date: July 15, 2006
Location: Hilltop Sportsman’s Club, Orient, OH
July 15 – U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance/Women in the Outdoors Orient, Ohio. Activities include basic archery, basic shotgun, belly dancing, cast-iron cooking, hiking and backpacking, basic handgun, bird feeders, yoga, basic first aid, GPS, stream ecology, canoeing, turkey hunting and calling.
Backwoods bellydancing? Shotgun Yoga? Hooo-yah! Grab that shotgun and shake your groove thing, baby!
I suspect the threw in the bellydancing and yoga to give the event a wider appeal. I’ll say this: It certainly got our attention! The event actually sounds pretty cool, something I’d enjoy (all except the belly dancing, anyway). I grew up the daughter of a hunter and I love camping, so the outdoors isn’t anything foreign to me.
Their day’s lineup is just so incongruous, we couldn’t help but giggle.
