This week in my e-mail box I received notification from one of my outdoor supplies providers - that they would be having some informational and hands-on workshops. Twenty-six stores of the Cabela's Retail outlets will be hosting Cabela's Spring Outdoors Days. The location closest to me at Owatonna,MN. will be starting their first weekend event at 11:00 AM, Saturday March 15th,2008. If you aren't able to make it on Saturday they will have repeat events from 1:00 - 4:00 PM on Sunday the 16th. Then again the following weekend there are activities planned. Just wish they were closer so it would be easier to hangout and take in the information in the seminars. The events are getting everybody going on fishing, which if you haven't done yet with ice fishing, you probably will be gearing up for Spring and Summer. Ladies, they are getting some guest speakers for us too. Shannon Hentges from the Women Anglers Association will be there to enlighten those able to attend. She is a lady who can tell you some exciting experiences she has had in fishing ,and about being apart of a women's Angler's association. Shannon will be able to tell you how you can get started with fishing because of her long time association with the sport. 1:00 p.m.(both Saturday and Sunday) Location:Great Lakes Conference Room. A representative from the Women Hunters Organization, Linda Burch will be available to relate her adventures in Spring Turkey or Bear Hunting - Some of her accomplishments will be presented in an informal seminar. She will also tell you about the Women Hunters organization she belongs to and how you can also get in on some of the adventures and fun. 2:00 p.m. (both Saturday and Sunday gatherings are at the same time and location) Location: From the front entrance, take the left wood walkway to the fishing department on the left. I, for one, have plans to attend to keep working towards my goal to become a more complete outdoors woman. Maybe I will see you there!
