A Message from your Chapter President



We did “Keep the Tradition Alive” for our annual dinner/fundraiser at the end of March. I hope you were there to help us celebrate our club and raise money for our annual projects and legislative advocacy. We have a great start to the year with 19 new and renewal memberships sold at the dinner. I want to thank our Board of Directors for a great effort. 

We are also very sad to relay the word that Kathy Lynch and her long-time partner were killed in their home. An unfortunate situation indeed, and we will sorely miss her legislative advocacy. Please read her obit in this newsletter.

Our next membership meeting will have a Cinco de Mayo flair. It will be held on May 5 (of course) at Ernie Dosio’s trophy building in Lodi. If you haven’t been there, you are missing this fantastic display of a lifetime of hunting. I will look forward to seeing you there. Please RSVP to Ken Akins below.

We are planning some great events and activities for 2022. Coming up, we are a major sponsor for Duck Days on Saturday, April 30th. We will set up our sensory safari booth to share with the attendees. Stop by to enjoy the event! For more details, please see below.

We need your help. We need two additional Directors for our board to keep up with the activity level we want to provide. We also need volunteers to help us in specific areas such as social media. If you have a little time and can help, please let me know at wayne@sacramentosafariclub.org or call me at 925.989.1634.

SSC MOURNS THE LOSS OF KATHY LYNCH 
January 13, 1955 – March 25, 2022



 

A long-time love of politics prompted Kathy to start her own firm, Lynch & Associates in Sacramento in 1985. Her client list was long and included the California Coalition, the legislative arm of the California chapters of Safari Club International. Sacramento Safari Club always looked to Kathy for legislative updates and "Orange Alerts" to get in front of the anti-hunting fights.
 
A scholarship fund to advance educational opportunities for other young women seeking to make a difference in their community has been set up in Kathy’s honor. Donations may be sent to the Home State Bank, 115 W State Street, Jefferson Iowa 50129, Attention: Kathy Lynch Memorial Scholarship Fund.

A Monthly Reminder on Hunting Ethics



SCI HUNTERS’ CODE OF ETHICS
Recognizing my responsibilities to wildlife, habitat and future generations, I pledge:
  • To conduct myself in the field so as to make a positive contribution to wildlife and ecosystems.
  • To improve my skills as a woodsmen and marksman to ensure humane harvesting of wildlife.
  • To comply with all game laws, the concept of fair chase, and to influence my companions accordingly.
  • To accept my responsibility to provide all possible assistance to game law enforcement officers.
  • To waste no opportunity to teach young people the full meaning of this code of ethics.
  • To reflect in word and behavior only credit upon the fraternity of sportsmen, and to demonstrate abiding respect for the game, habitat and property where I am privileged to hunt.
