Welcome to SCI Tampa


President's Message

Hello All,

Michele and I just returned from a weekend Chapter Presidents training and round table in Orlando Florida. Representatives from every Florida Chapter was there. It was an opportunity to meet with the other chapter board members, and catch up. We are working to put together a Florida coalition. The goal is to strengthen Safari Club International's presence in Florida and work to address some of the many challenges that face hunters in Florida. Hopefully we can help to bring bear hunting back to Florida as well as expand opportunities for hunting the many exotic species here in Florida. Please watch for future announcements.

At present I am working on our next monthly dinner. It will be in August at Bass Pro Shops - Outdoor World in Brandon. The dinner will be Thursday the 22nd, so please watch for the announcements. I can tell you the presentation will be by Tony Covell and his recent trip to Africa.

Please mark your calendars, as next year's "Night of the Hunter" Banquet which will return to Banquet Masters in Clearwater, but at a new date - February 22, 2020. Once again we are going to hold our banquet earlier next year so as to not interfere with spring hunting and the beginning of safari season. And, next year our banquet will be just after convention. 

For those that haven't heard, Safari Club International changed the date of the 2020 convention to better serve the attendees and vendors. The new dates are February 5-8 2020 in Reno Nevada. 

                                        Why Safari Club International

 "No matter what your pursuit, or where your travels take you to hunt, Safari Club International is there fighting for your right to hunt. Come joins us and help support Safari Club International and your local chapter."

Thanks for your support, see you at our events

SCI, First for Hunting.
