WOW weekend

A couple of weeks ago my friend Mary-Lou and I attended the WOW weekend put on by OFAH (Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters) just for women. Check out the website:

Was a beautiful weekend at the camp up near Minden:

We were divided into smaller groups to rotate through a variety of activites, including shotgun & rifle shooting, bass fishing, canoeing, archery, survival skills, high ropes and the climbing wall, carving, among others.

Our group the range preparing to shoot shotguns:

The archery range:The canoes at the lakeside:

Practicing bundling a hypothermia victim for transport:

Fire starting - this one was using steel wool and a battery:

Wonderful pork roast on Saturday night:

Had fun carving a whistle Sunday morning:

It's neat to go to these all-women events and realize that there are more women that enjoy some of the things I enjoy! Makes me feel a little less like a square peg in a round hole.
