The Fayette Ladies Adventure Group (FLAG) is a division of the Fayette County Fish & Game Association. FLAG is dedicated to providing an interactive, outdoor experience for women ages 14 and older.
This year’s fun-filled day will take place on June 18 at the Fayette County Fish & Game lodge and grounds. We offer educational and hands-on activities taught by artisans, craft-makers and experienced persons in their field of study.
Our day begins with registration at 8 a.m. and is completed by 5 p.m. We provide a continental breakfast and a hot lunch, with beverages served throughout the day. In addition to the meals provided, your paid registration of $50 includes your choice of four FLAG courses (two in the morning and two in the afternoon), use of all equipment and one ticket to enter the grand prize drawing.
We also have FLAG items and other gifts available for raffles. Some instructors will be selling their handcrafted items also.
