Traveling with Kevin to the SCI convention is always an adventure. Your mind is on overload the entire time that you are there. Going to the Sable luncheon on Friday is a treat for me. Every year the luncheon gets better. The Safari Club International Sables are dedicated to continuing our outdoor heritage.
The efforts are primarily pointed to the youth.
- The American Wilderness Leadership Schools (AWLS)
- Becoming an Outdoors Women (BOW).
- Safari in a Box is a teaching tool for K-12 giving information about wildlife and how hunters promote wildlife conservation.
- Sables scholarships’ programs.
This year of course was filled with the silent auctions, live auction, and the great champagne waiters who earned over $5000.00 in extra funds from the ever-lively ladies.
The Artie Dean Harris Band returned and hopefully will return again next year.
The highlight for me was when Artie introduced Little Emily Smith from Fairfield Ca. Emily went on a hunt to South Africa June of 2008, with Unico Guides. She had this great picture of the warthogs that she shot. To me this is what it’s all about. The future of the Sable Ladies is in the hands of these beautiful little Ladies.
