After six years, the Safari Club International Annual Hunters’ Convention is returning to exciting Reno, NV from January 9 to 12, 2019. The Biggest Little City in the World will become a temporary home to sportsmen around the globe. This will be an event that you will not want to miss!
Why Attend the SCI Annual Hunter’s Convention?
The SCI’s annual convention is a hunter’s paradise. Hunters from six continents come together for the ultimate experience in the latest guns and equipment, speakers, techniques and bonding with 18,000 of their closest friends. You’ll register for seminars to learn how to care for your gear and equipment, as well as how to improve your game. You’ll be able to book trips and excursions. If you can dream it, it’s here at this convention.
What many SCI members find is the most exciting part of the convention are the auctions. From equipment to exotic excursions, excellent deals can be found on the auction block. The best part is that the proceeds are used to fund conservation efforts and for the promotion of the hunting tradition.
The silent auctions will be taking place right on the show floor at the Reno-Spark Convention Center. The evening live auctions will be taking place at various resorts in the Reno area. There is even a luncheon auction.
A member identification number will be needed in order to bid. In a live auction, you will simply raise your hand to indicate to the floor auctioneer that you wish to bid. In the silent auctions, you will write your bid on the bid sheets with your identification numbers.
All auctioned goods and services must be paid for by Saturday, Jan 12.
