President's Message

Hello All,


 

I hope this finds every safe and well. It seems the panic of covid19 is now in full swing, and like it or not, we are in for some major changes. As hunters we are greatly impacted if any of us are hoping to travel. It's been reported that South Africa closed their boarders to anyone traveling there from a covid19 infected area, which includes the United States. So, if any of you have an African safari planned you really need to stay in touch with your outfitter.


Then a day later it was reported that anyone from the Untied States flying into Argentina would be quarantine for 14 days, so again if you are headed south, please check with your outfitter before heading out. It seems that travel restrictions are changing almost by the hour now.


Our First special drawing of the year continues and I was hoping to sell all the tickets before our next monthly dinner, in April, but with all the concerns over covid19 I was forced to postpone the dinner. We are getting close to selling out the tickets, so if they do sell out, I will wait and hold the drawing at the next monthly dinner as soon as we can schedule one. Remember the drawing is for something truly special for our birds hunters or something thinking about bird hunting or shooting clays. It is a CZ-USA Classic Hammered 12 gauge side by side. A truly unique and hard to find shotgun. You wont want to miss a chance at this one. Tickets are now on sale. 


For tickets for any of our drawing - please go to:
