Houston Safari Club's Annual Convention Sets Records!
By: Houston Safari Club
The banquet events were very popular as well with all being sold out. Friday evening concluded with a concert by The Bellamy Brothers and Saturday night Gala attendees danced their way into Sunday to the sounds of Roger Creager.
Houston Safari Club presented its top annual awards at the banquets. Among them, Peter Tam of Tam Safaris was recognized as the Professional Hunter of the Year. Tristan Pepper was awarded the Youth Hunter of the Year award. Denise Welker was named Huntress of the Year and William "Bill" Newlin was recognized as the Hunter of the Year.
Each year, HSC's Convention raises funds to continue their mission of education, conservation, and the protection of hunters' rights. Day traffic at the expo was impressive and drew in crowds that far surpassed attendance expectations.
HSC hosted 150 area high school students for the Youth Wildlife Conservation Education (YWCE) program, introducing Houston area high school students to the many possibilities the outdoors can hold, including the many aspects of hunting as a conservation tool and careers in the outdoor arena.
HSC has already begun planning their 2019 Convention which will take place January 25-27, 2019. Exhibitor applications are being taken now at www.houstonsafariclub.org/
