Four Corners Chapter President and Treasurer Attend Young Guns Event at SCI

You and the Four Corners Chapter of SCI are fortunate to have a vibrant Board of Directors (BOD) who strive to make a difference in our world. The entire Board descended upon the Safari Club International (SCI) Convention in Reno, NV this year with a mission to learn more about how to run the Chapter, raise money, give it back to the community and make a difference in a more broad aspect. Each BOD attended education and networking events to help fulfill this goal. Our Chapter President, Matt Howell, and Treasurer, Jason DeWeese, attended an event that no doubt will produce your future leadership for SCI and SCIF.

Young Guns – The Future of SCI/SCIF and the Future of Hunting

Bringing in the next generation of leaders is important if SCI and SCI Foundation are to continue growing their impact into the future. On Wednesday afternoon, January 9 SCI Foundation held its second annual Young Guns event at the Peppermill Resort. The event was hosted by C.J. and Jami Sibert, and was attended by an energetic group of up and comers, many of whom will eventually take on leadership rolesIn SCI and SCI Foundation, ensuring the continued viability of these groups well into the future.

“The future of hunting relies on young people getting more involved,” said SCI Foundation Executive Director Bob Benson. “Our new Young Guns group is a great way for young hunters to meet and build relationships and learn more about SCI and SCI Foundation. We look forward to seeing this new initiative grow.”

Four Corners SCI chapter announces the Legacy Project

Legacy Project-Four Corners SCIThe Four Corners SCI chapter is pleased to announce the Legacy Project, a program to help and encourage youth in our area to not only get outdoors but stay out, enjoy it and then pass it on to others, thus establishing a Legacy. This year, at our 15th annual banquet on March 14th, we will be presenting one local and deserving youth with a new rifle. This is where we need your help. We are asking for nominations of passionate youth who live in the four corners, wants to hunt but are unable to afford a gun or must share one with a sibling. If you know of and would like to nominate a local youth please email us back with a short nomination letter as to why this youth is a good candidate to not only receive this rifle but to establish a Legacy by passing the rifle on to another youth as they grow older. Please include the name, age and parental contact information for any nomination. All emailed nominations must be received by Feb. 26th to be considered by the board. The Board members will make a final decision on the recipient of this award and the winner will be announced the night of the banquet.
