ALTAIR Gun Club’s Shirley Watral chosen to be on the Women’s Outdoor Media Association Board

ALTAIR Gun Club’s general manager Shirley Watral has been selected to serve on the Women’s Outdoor Media Association (WOMA) board.

Watral’s role on the board will include helping to secure support for the 2017 She Never Quit fundraising event. This event benefits Navy SEAL family charities selected by Melanie Luttrell, wife of Marcus Luttrell, famed Navy SEAL Lone Survivor.

“I’ll focus on recruiting sponsors, silent auction items and swag bag items for this important fundraiser,” says Watral. “Helping to support the families of fallen Navy SEALS is an honor.”

Watral first visited the gun club five years ago for a fundraising event. Shortly thereafter, she became a member of the Club and has since joined the competitive shooting world. Her interest in firearms training, competition shooting and women’s safety led to her career change.
