    How would you like to compete for FREE.

    Now you can.

    This year at the Alaska Taxidermist Competition & SCI show , there are No fees for entering mounts for the competition. Thats right NO FEES.

    & even more good news, for every entree you bring that will be in the Judged competition, you will receive a raffle ticket for a gun drawing.

    Bring 20 mounts , you get 20 entrees.

    On top of this good stuff, SCI AK has graciously donated ALOT of money for various awards. $ 3000.00 in fact.

    So now you can compete for free to try to win a trophy & MONEY.

    There will be 4 Divisions of competition ;

    Commercial

    Armature or Novice

    Professional or OPEN

    & Masters.

    & Now heres anouther GREAT addition to the show,

    A Television crew is coming to the show to do a segment about the Taxidermy show & the SCI AK chapter function.

    Now put this all together & heres what you have;

    A Show that costs you Nothing to compete in, that you might win some big money or a Riffle & Your mounts might be shown to the WORLD on a TV show.

    How the heck can you not want to be there ????

    Come on Alaskans, Get er in gear & show your stuff in a big way.

    We are also working on a seminar & more Great stuff , I will update that a little later.

    Call Russell Knight at 907 344 5507
    or RJ Simington at 1 877 281 0936

    Flyers are being sent out to all Alaska Taxidermists.

    Well , did it get the point across ?????

    We get all kinds of calls wanting to know if the Open division is also the professional division & so forth.

    I thought it would eliminate Stupid questions.
     
  9. Here - amateur. Maybe just call it Novice. It will be easier for everyone. ;D Sounds like a great show. Would be nice to attend. Can you shoot anything that time of year?

    You will still have to pay a Whole $ 10. Membership fee to join the association, & if you want your points to count towards NTA certification or Award of Excellence, You must be a current member of NTA or Pay NTA membership at the show.

    That's the cheapest membership I have ever heard of.

    I will be giving a Seminar on Friday , Interpreting your Reference, & competition techniques.

    There is going to be a Membership meeting to vote in new officers & discuss future show ideas.

    As I said this show will be covered by a television crew that will air the competition on TV.

    Mount registration day is Feb 24 2011 from 8am to 3 pm.

    Late comers will not be turned away.

    More to come
