O.F.A.H. responds to demand for second women’s outdoor weekend event

Today is registration day for the new spring session of Women’s Outdoor Weekend. The popular
outreach program is designed and hosted exclusively for women by the Ontario Federation of
Anglers and Hunters (O.F.A.H.). The province’s largest conservation-based organization has
added a spring weekend for 2010 to help it meet the huge demand for the only provincial
educational outreach program of its kind.
Women’s Outdoor Weekends are held at the Kinark Outdoor Centre near Minden. The spring
session runs during weekend of Mother’s Day, May 7-9, and is expected to fill quickly. The fall
event will run September 10-12, with registration for that weekend opening in May.
“We are really excited to be expanding the Women’s Outdoor Weekend in response to women’s
increasing interest in outdoor activities,” says Alesha Caldwell, O.F.A.H. Events Representative.
“We hope that by offering a spring and fall event, we’ll be able to accommodate women who
haven’t previously had the opportunity to take part in an outdoor weekend and to continue to
welcome previous participants. The spring and fall events will feature the same winning
combination of outdoor activities, food and entertainment, and networking that has proven so
successful for 15 years.”
Space is limited at each event. The weekend is all-inclusive, and features meals, cabin
accommodations and all program equipment. To register, go online to www/ofah.org/wow or call
Jane Beggs at 705-748-6324 ext 232.
With over 100,000 members, subscribers and supporters and 660 member clubs, the Ontario
Federation of Anglers and Hunters is the leading fishing, hunting and conservation-based
organization in Ontario. To learn more, visit www.ofah.org
