Alicia Thomas - Houston, Texas
My introduction to Lady Clay Shooters was a flyer in a storefront window for the ladies’ shoot nearly four years ago. I registered for the email list. Unfortunately, I missed the ladies shoot but received the email for summer league. I immediately signed up. I had no idea what sporting clays was. I thought it was skeet until I looked at the email a week before league began. I quickly went to American Shooting Center to test my skills (I was horrible), but decided to give it a try, and if I did not like it I figured I could quietly slip away and no one would know.
Well, my first day was such a great experience! I was immediately hooked. Barbara was very welcoming. We were all introduced and paired up with some of the regulars. I was paired with Electra Berry, Shawna Escobar and Jennifer Grubbs. They took the time to explain why I missed and how to correct it. I have not missed an opportunity to shoot with the Lady Clay Shooters since that day. Over the past four years, I have met some great lifelong friends. I was asked to join the board a year ago and have loved every minute. Knowing that we are able to contribute to Be an Angel and give back to the community is an added plus. I would encourage any lady that is looking to have fun and shoot with a great bunch to join the Lady Clay Shooters.
