Meals from Winchester, plus lodging, ammunition, clay targets and a Winchester gear package round out the experience.

“This is an incredible opportunity for 18 people to learn from the absolute best shooters in the world and experience the legendary Winchester brand,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition. “NILO is one of the most premier shooting and hunting facilities in the nation with a rich heritage, and we are proud to offer this unique, once-in-a-lifetime Winchester event.”
