I am humbled, and yet honored to tell you that I have been awarded the C.J. McElroy Award. Since the 2021 SCI Convention has been cancelled due to the COVID pandemic. The actual presentation will take place on Friday, January 21st, 2022, at the evening event during the Safari Club International Hunters’ Convention in Las Vegas, NV. Thank you, all of you, who wrote in to SCI, in support of my nomination. I am forever grateful to you. I am the fourth member of IPHA to receive this award.
The criteria for this award, and I quote: “Named for the late founder and chairman emeritus of Safari Club International, the C.J. McElroy Award established in 1995, honors a member of SCI who has made great contributions to the sport of hunting, achieved excellence in worldwide hunting, displayed a dedication to the conservation of wildlife, and has a history of service to the global hunting community and to Safari Club International’s goals. Potential nominees must have shown exemplary ethics in the business of hunting and be committed to SCI’s programs and mission statement.”
Thanks to all of you who have trusted me and CAZATUR, to help me walk this long path of over 40 years to get here!
This recognition filles up the tank to keep pushing to welcome all of you in Spain, for a experience of a life time.
