Joella Bates, from the USA 3D Archery Team, has graciously offered to teach an Archery Tune Up class ahead of deer season!

On September 14th from 10am to 2pm we'll get together in White's Creek, TN to shoot some arrows, get a little expert coaching, cook hot dogs and tell a few lies about deer seasons past. We'll have games, competitions, prizes, food and drinks. All you need to do is bring your bow, some folding chairs and your family. 

This is an great opportunity to receive pointers from a world class archery coach. Joella has won eleven 3D Archery World Championships, she was the first bow hunter to take Africa's big five in a single safari, and she coaches, runs outreach programs, serves on the chapter's board of directors and much more.

I'm looking forward to seeing you there. We'll learn a lot but just as importantly it's a chance to get to know the other fine folks who make up our chapter.  

If you can make it,

See you there,
Chris West

First for Hunters

Education programs for both children and adults, provide a hands-on opportunity to experience the outdoors and to spread the knowledge of conservation and wildlife management. One of these education programs is Sensory Safari, a program in which the blind can learn about nature through touch exhibits. SCI Foundation also opened the International Wildlife Museum in Tucson, Arizona, to increase knowledge of, and appreciation for, the diverse wildlife of the world.

Humanitarian service programs are also a primary initiative of SCI Foundation. Through Sportsmen Against Hunger and SafariCare, food and supplies are provided to those in need, both in our backyard and in remote places of the world. The Disabled Hunter program fosters opportunities for disabled sportsmen and women to experience the hunting tradition. SafariWish grants hunting related wishes to those dealing with terminal or life-threatening illnesses.
