WELCOME

Well another banquet is in the books! It was another roaring success with over 400 guests sharing food, fun, and a spirit of camaraderie. Each year we try to do a few things different to improve our event. This year we added a two new games. One called Razor Back, has a 3D pig archery target with 150 knives going down the back. For $20 you got both a knife, and a chance at a gun, or a number of other prizes. Pretty awesome looking!

We had a few other firsts this year. Chief among these was the fact that three of the main raffle winners are from out of state this year! But we’ll cover those results later….

To all of our sponsors, banquet attendees, and folks from across the country that purchased raffle tickets, THANK YOU!! Your generous support allows our chapter to do so much good in our community. Here are just a few of the projects the Colorado SCI chapter has supported in the past couple of years:

  • Purchased a working dog for wildlife law enforcement for Colorado Parks & Wildlife (CPW)
  • Provide $30,000 dollars to help CPW purchase a new drone for use in law enforcement and animal management
  • Donated and built the new archery pavilion at the Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex at Fort Carson
  • Donated $30,000 toward the Waldo Canyon Fire Restoration, promoting wildlife habitat restoration
  • Raised over $600,000 for the CPW Moose Management Program and $180,000 for the CPW Deer Program
  • Annually we send a few local school teachers to the American Wilderness Leadership School in Jackson Hole, Wyoming
    for wildlife conservation and wilderness education
  • Donated over $5000 worth of hunting books and videos to the Pikes Peak Library district
  • Spent over $30,000 to mail moose identification postcards to elk hunters, who drew tags in known moose areas, to reduce
    accidental moose kills, and it is working!
  • Supply Safari in a Box kits to CPW. These are loaned to schools to educate youth about wildlife and conservation
  • Supplied thousands of ‘Know Your Target’ signs that the CPW placed in areas that have moose in Colorado. Designed to
    make hunters aware of the difference between elk and moose, and reduce accidental moose deaths.
  • Annual sponsorship of Sportsmen for Community Service Group Shootout, which has raised more than $480,000 for local
    charities
  • Mentored and sponsored numerous big game hunts for youth, disadvantaged youth, kids fighting cancer, and wounded
    warriors
  • Support and promote the SCI Blue Bags program, supporting humanitarian efforts worldwide
  • Continue an ongoing program to provide game meat (donated and confiscated) to 6 food banks
  • Sponsor the Angels of America’s Fallen to support the families and children of first responders and soldiers  lost in the line of duty.

And finally here are the winner’s of this years raffles. Congratulations to everyone who won!

WE ARE MORE THAN JUST FUNDRAISING

The Colorado Chapter is more than fundraising.  That is a huge component of what we do, but the great thing about raising money is getting to SPEND the money on conservation projects such as habitat for Colorado Moose; Humanitarian projects like the Sportsmen Against Hunger program where we collect meat and food and donate on an ongoing basis to a dozen food banks and shelters; and the Education arm of our chapter where we are very active in the Archery in the Schools program.  These are just a sample of what we do with the money we raise.

God Bless our Men and Women in uniform and we thank all of you who have done so in the past.
