Orvis Sandanona Shooting Grounds

This past Saturday with a voucher purchased off Gilt Clay and I took a day trip out of the City with our former Connect Group leaders to go clay shooting at Orvis Sandanona.  The hour and a half ride to Millbrook, NY was gorgeous as the fall leaves were at their peak.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that our location had a country club style set up-- with an Orvis retail store, restaurant, plenty of seating around wood fireplaces, complimentary beverages, a member's only lounge, cigars for sale, etc.  Our Gilt package included a 3 course lunch, safety gear and an introductory lesson for 4.

The ladies shot a 28 gauge shotgun and the gentlemen shot a 12 gauge.  It was K's first time shooting as he grew up in Malaysia then lived in both Australia and England.  Us ladies also each purchased Barbour coats while we were there-- Clay is hoping to get one later this year!

Afterwards, since we had the luxury of a car, and K+C had recently just purchased their own home in the City, we took the glorious opportunity to stop by Target!  (Where 3/4 of our purchases were dog related...)  Target is just the best.
