I received an email from Jenny Teague of the League of Lethal Ladies letting me know that the league has died. The email included a lot of useful information, so I’m posting it here for you all to see. I only went to one LLL after work shooting event, but I had a lot of fun there. I got the opportunity to try things I wouldn’t have otherwise, such as shooting at a playing card, bowling pins, or clay pigeons. Anyway… on with the email:
This is just a note to everyone that the League of Lethal Ladies has been officially disbanded as an organization with the State of Nevada. That just means we no longer are recognized by the state as a non-profit organization. That doesn’t mean you can’t get together to shoot or meet monthly if you want. In fact, I highly encourage those of you who have got together for shoots to keep doing so. This is the most current email listing of everyone in the organization. Feel free to try and set up shooting dates still. Also, if you are interested in other organizations to join and shoot at, I highly recommend Stillwater Firearms Association in Fallon and Western Nevada Pistol League in Reno. If you join Stillwater, please tell Elynda Long, their president, I sent you. She’ll see to it you get the VIP treatment because they love having ladies join there. Thank you to everyone who helped out with the League, whether with paperwork and organization, hosting League nights, or just attending League Nights and shoots. It was a fun run while it lasted.
The website and facebook page will be removed soon, but here’s some links from there. If you enjoy posts on shooting and safety, you can always sign up to like the facebook pages of The Women’s Shooting Academy or Women’s Safety Academy to get Vicki’s up to date info on classes, tips, and newsletters, or The Gunslinging Housewife for my product reviews, tips, crafts and recipes.
Thank you to Vicki for originally collecting a list of students who wanted to get together and shoot more. Without her originally, there never would have been a League. Even though there is no more League, doesn’t mean to say you’re not all Leathal Ladies. You all shoot. You all won’t put up with garbage. You are all amazing!
