This is the Frady’s second year doing in-store promotions and seminars for the Myrtle Beach store and 8th year for the NC store. They work the event for Real Tree Camo, but also have the opportunity to promote several sponsors during the event. This year Lynn gave 4 seminars on getting women and children involved in hunting and the outdoorsat Myrtle Beach and 2 seminars in NC. It gave her a chance to promote products for women such as Real Tree Camo Clothing, boots, rifles, shotguns, bino's, scopes, archery equipment, ThermaCell mosquito repellant, and others. It’s also a great opportunity for her to promote WomenHunters since she says there are so many women that are not aware of organizations like WomenHunters that are geared towards women. She feels these promotions are a great success and that the more we educate women the more our sport will grow.
