Safari Club International (SCI) is the leader in protecting the freedom to hunt, promoting
wildlife conservation, and providing wildlife education worldwide.  SCI fights tirelessly to
protect the hunting heritage enjoyed by 15 million Americans and 45 million families around
the globe. Together we help every sportsman and sportswoman understand how and why SCI
is truly First for Hunters. The SCI National Capital Chapter is the preeminent chapter of
Safari Club International located in Virginia. We enjoy fellowship with other hunters
through our monthly activities. We promote hunting and provide significant support for the
wildlife conservation & outdoor education programs
Congratulations to John Sholes
who was named the chapter’s Member of the Year for 2018.  
John takes his Membership Secretary duties seriously, he talks often with SCI
headquarters to make sure he has the latest lists, and he regularly and relentlessly follows
up by calling those who have not renewed their memberships.  That does not mean that
he is always successful, but he does make sure to contact everyone who has not renewed.

He devoted even more significant time and energy for the cause in his effort to solicit
donations.  He has a variety of contacts.  He has bought a lot of things from a lot of
these vendors, so many of them know him.  Also, he always makes a point whenever he
attends the SCI convention and most recently the Dallas Safari Club to introduce himself
(or renew acquaintances), and he encourages them to make a donation..  Over the past
several months, he wrote over 50 letters to people.  He  wrote each one individually (even
though I encouraged him to do a form letter) because he wanted to tailor them to each
person since he knows many of them.  When he did not hear from some of  them, he
followed up with a phone call.  As a result, he was successful in getting a good number of
donations for the upcoming banquet.  He did most of this prior to his surgery, when he
was not feeling that great, but this fundraising work seems to energize him.

THANK YOU TO ALL

Thank you to all for another record breaking NATIONAL CAPITAL CHAPTER banquet!
Despite the high winds and widespread power outages we had a great turnout and

doing important education, conservation, and humanitarian projects; and we have a great time doing it!.
We appreciate our outfitters who donated these amazing hunts, trips, furs and jewelry. We thank our
members, attendees and online bidders for buying these exciting hunts. We honor our Veterans who
serve and protect and we thank you! We personally thank each and every volunteer, who worked so
tirelessly to make this happen. Special kudos to our Banquet Committee members, our checkout crew
