President's Message

Hello All,

The holidays are behind us and our focus is now on the coming SCI Convention and then our annual fundraiser. This year will be our 31st banquet, and promises to be full of surprises!

For some, hunting season is starting to wind down, yet for others like Michele and I it is just getting started. For a peek at how some of us have done please check out the gallery page. 

We have a meeting scheduled for January 23rd at the legendary John Ronnlof's home. He just completed his quest for dangerous seven and has a few tales to tell. Watch your e-mail for details. 

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 tickets for any of our drawing and dinner tickets - please go to:
