2015 Shooting Industry Masters Headed To Claythorne Lodge

FMG Taps Media Direct As Management Agency

FMG Publications, the entity and mastermind behind the Shooting Industry Masters, is pleased to announce Media Direct as their Event Management Agency for the 2015 Shooting Industry Masters to be held at the Claythorne Lodge in Columbus Kansas, July 24-25.

In its 13th year, the Shooting Industry Masters has been overwhelmingly successful, to the level where FMG recognized the need to utilize the services of an event management agency. Since its inception, the Masters has steadily grown and has hit new milestones from the preceding years. The overall purpose of the Shooting Industry Masters is to raise money for the NSSF First Shots program and other organizations that are focused on growing and enhancing the shooting sports.

“The Masters has exploded and is beyond the capabilities of handling this event solely in-house. Gaining the expertise of industry marketers Mark Sidelinger and Kim Cahalan of Media Direct is the perfect move for our team. Their philosophies parallel ours in that they just want to grow the industry and make it a better place,” comments Randy Molde, Shooting Industry Masters Chairman.

Media Direct will be responsible for securing all 2015 sponsorships with past sponsors, as well as aggressively attracting new sponsorships, promoting team recruitment, coordinating the side events and hosts, requesting raffle donations for the ever-popular auction, and communicating match updates and information to the industry.

“We are very humbled and honored that FMG asked our team to carry the torch for the Shooting Industry Masters. We have been attending and promoting this event for our clients for several years. This is the one event that a manufacturer can attend where they can network and open doors for new opportunities with other manufacturers and distributors in a relaxed, stress-free and fun environment – and do all of this to benefit the growth of our industry. I mean, who doesn’t like to shoot?” comments Mark Sidelinger, owner of Media Direct.

Team registration will be available November 1 by signing onto Mark your calendars – you don’t want to miss this event!
