I am looking forward to getting to know you more. When we meet face to face, I would enjoy very much learning how you feel about so many aspects of our sporting life. Somehow I know we won't be too far apart.
That is why I see this page as an invitation to start our conversation. It's a privilege to share with you how I feel.

Our mission is to share with nontraditional markets the rich opportunities found in our sporting traditions while encouraging them to never let stereotypes dictate who they will become or what they will enjoy.
I decided from an early age
that my career would not be restricted by the established expectations of a society
It brings great joy to all of us at TSLN
to hear that had it not been
for our teams’ commitment to expose
continuously the invaluable experiences
found in a sporting life, many unlikely players to our industry may have never lived the outdoor activities they are
devotedly engaging in today.
How good does it feel that the new
and unlikely participants enjoying the outdoors are bringing in fresh perspectives; perspectives ensuring our sporting traditions, wildlife, & habitat will be here tomorrow.
Do you know how we are bringing the unlikely
to the outdoors?
Unless we bring in more participants
from new & unexplored markets
our sporting traditions, outdoor businesses, wildlife, or habitat
will continue to dramatically decrease.
Whatever you do,
never allow deeply rooted stereotypes to dictate what you will become or enjoy!
Remember, our sporting community’s richness
will always be directly linked
to the diversity found in its members, ideas, & opinions.
Remember, our sporting community will rapidly begin a shift from a 'thing-oriented' society to a 'person-oriented' society.
