I will be there as well, and I'm pretty sure a couple others from the site will be as well.
Some good groups to support here.

Great fun and great time.   The auctions are amazing as well as the food.  Ill be there as well, of course.  Look for me at the SCISeattlePSC.COM booth.  We will be promoting our website and forums in attempt to start moving more towards ecommunications.

We will have the Goat, Westside Elk, Blacktail and Moose auction tags as well as 100's of live auction items and 100's of silent auction items.

Yes, it is a lot of fun to see the big dollars run through the auction.  It is really not big (Physically) of an event but the dinner and auction is the fun part.

Just got back from picking out/ordering all the guns for this years Convention Raffles.  16 in all.  A full list will be available in the next couple of weeks and will be posted on our website.   There will be a couple Sako's, Tikka's, CZ's not to mention shotguns, handguns, scopes and related equipment.

If you are on the fence about going this year, this collection of guns is worth the price of admission in itself.

Also on the $5 raffle wall you will have a chance to win a hunting trip to Africa. If you purchase the Conservation Package you have a 1 in 5 chance to win a rifle also. Buy a table of 10 at the conservation package price and you will win 2 rifles for your table. Great event for a good cause.

Another update. 

I have added a list of items that are being raffled off at this years event.  Here is the link, it will show description, value and model # so you can research the specifics if needed. 

We will also be adding a few more items as I get the info.  Such as scopes, two 24 gun safes, combound bows supplied by Bowtech just to name a few.   :drool:  :drool:

Update, the safes we wanted to purchase for the event were out of stock at the time we tried to place our order and we are unable to get comparable safes for the same costs unfortunatly. So, sorry no safes this year.   We do have a lot of really nice weapons, bows and optics that will be auctioned and raffled off both nights. See list http://sciseattlepsc.com/raffle.php Our attendance is a bit lower then last year, so we need to get as many people there as we can.  Dont miss out on these great auction items, good food and lovely ladies.  Register online and reserve your spot!

Thanks to all of you who made it this year.  Friday night was a bit slow but Saturday turned out pretty good.  Came away with a Photographic African Safari, in south east Africa, for $800.00.  I think we scored pretty good!

Agree, it was a great event, lots of great outfitters, saw some old friends and met a few new ones.  Even scored on a few auction items myself!

How much did the governor's tags for each species go for? 

I didn't find out about this until I already had some other plans that I couldn't cancel or change, so I missed out.  I will definitely be signing up for next years event.
