Join us for NADRA's Southeast Shotgun Showdown Networking Event! Happening Thursday, October 20, 2022, in Kennesaw, Georgia
Are you looking for a way to meet like-minded individuals in the outdoor living industry? Have you heard of NADRA, but never attended an event? Are you interested in meeting the faces behind the products you use, and some you haven't seen before? Try something new! You are cordially invited to join our local NADRA members in the Southeast region for a shotgun showdown! 
We will be getting together at the Governor's club in Kennesaw, GA at 4:30 pm for some target and skeet shooting. Following that, we return to the club for cocktails, dinner, and networking. Product tables will be on display from our manufacturer members attending this event. 
Not interested in shooting? That's ok! Arrive by 6 pm for cocktails, dinner, and more!
