Participants will be divided into two groups. The first group will spend the morning enjoying a guided fly fishing trip wading through trophy waters. The second group will spend the morning at Chetola's sporting clays course where NRA-certified instructors will lead participants through the 20-acre course. Choose from finely crafted Caesar Guerini and Beretta shotguns, or bring your own gun if preferred. Ammo is included. After the morning activities, participants will come together for a networking lunch. Participants will then swap activities for the afternoon, arriving back at the resort in time for the welcome reception.
