The Year in Review
Each month for the past year the Alamogordo Ladies CCW Group has gotten together to continue our quest for knowledge, practice tips and support. This month’s meeting was an overview of what went well during the past year and the planning and brainstorming process of what will come.
Far and away the most popular meeting event that was enjoyed and appreciated by the group during 2011 was the CCW fashion show. We watched and/or participated in a fashion style show featuring some the styles of clothing that can been worn while still carrying your weapon. Models demonstrated concealed carry techniques with clothing worn during events such as “out for a jog”, “business meeting attire” and “Sunday best”. The ladies from the Las Cruces Ladies CCW Group members enjoyed the show so much that they have scheduled their own CCW Fashion show in March 2012. Other meeting activity highlights from 2011 were the shooting clinics and guest speakers.
Upcoming Agenda Items
The events scheduling for 2012 has also begun to take shape. Although a few months have been left open to accommodate schedules of a few (2-3) key guest speakers that will be invited, it was not difficult to completely fill the calendar. A dry fire practice event will be added to the schedule once the guest speakers confirm their speaking engagements. The group also expressed a desire for some sort of practical experience to be added to each meeting’s agenda in addition to the safety briefing that occurs.
Here is the tentative and preliminary schedule for the Alamogordo Ladies CCW Group for 2012. Be sure to watch the site’s sidebar calendar of events for actual dates, times and places.
