Heather Gastelum won 2011 CMSA WA State High Point Cowgirl, was the 2011 CMSA Western Regional L3 Champion and the CMSA Sharp Shooter Overall Champion at the July Shootout, and that was just last year. Karen Klein boasts a series of State Champions and in 2011 was the CMSA AZ Burn Center SL3 Champion. These two ladies will be assisted by Kim Lemke who was the 2011 WWMS Sharp Shooter Champion.
The clinic starts at 9:30 am and goes all day. It provides everything except the horse, saddle and bridle, although shooters are encourage to bring their own firearms, ammo, ear plugs and gun belts if they have them. Cost is $125 + $10 Arena Fee, or $50 for an active audit.
