The following press release is courtesy of the Alaska chapter of Safari Club International:
SCI Alaska Chapter is excited to announce that we have implemented a few new changes to our 2020 44th Annual banquet that we hope will create a lot of excitement and we want to offer tickets to our previous banquet attendees before promoting ticket purchases to the general public. Tickets are going fast and so far we have sold 30% of our banquet capacity and we are well on our way to another sold out event.
Our goal is to stay true to the standard banquet platform we have all enjoyed for many years, while introducing a few changes that will provide opportunities for young sportsman and women that cannot afford to purchase one of our live auction hunts or simply cannot afford the time away from work or family to travel.
Secondly we want to focus our best efforts towards bringing you a great banquet, so we are limiting sales to 450 tickets on Friday Night and 750 Tickets on Saturday Night. No additional seats will be added. So please get your tickets now, while they are still available!
With that said, we are introducing 3 Big Raffles for either a gear package or a hunt of a lifetime. We will also closeout our banquet on Saturday night with a great local live band “Nothin But Trouble” for those of you who wish to stay and join us in a great after party celebration. These raffles include:
- The SCI AK Chapters Apex Predator gear package filled with proven Alaska Tough gun, gear and optics valued at over $13,000.
- A New Mexico All-Inclusive Trophy Elk Hunt with Joe Graham of Grahams Guide Service. This is a private ranch (no fence) all wild hunt which includes landowner tags, taxes and license.
- Saving The Best For Last: The Kodiak Island Brown Bear Governors Tag Raffle (residents only). Unquestionably the best brown bear tag ever offered! Tickets for this raffle will only be sold At The Banquet. The winner does not need to be present to win.
- The lucky winner of this raffle will have their choice of hunting either the Fall of 2020 or the Spring of 2021 in any one of the following permit areas DB201 through DB293, with the exception of DB215 and DB245 ( the Sturgeon River) and they will have their choice of any one of the most coveted brown bear hunting areas in Alaska. Aliulik Peninsula, Deadman Bay, Red Lake, Frasier Lake and Zachar Bay areas with drawing odds that are less than 1% are all included in the permit.
Tickets to our 44th Annual Alaskan Hunting Expo & Sportsman’s Banquet, that will be held on February 28th & 29th, 2020 at the Dena’ina Convention Center in Anchorage, Alaska are on sale and currently available online. Tickets can be purchased at any of the following links.
