    Default AFC 2009 Field Meet

    The American Falconry Conservancy Fall Meet

    I wanted to let the membership know that the fall meet will be held this year in El Dorado, Kansas November 17-21. It starts on Tuesday and ends Saturday. We chose those dates so it would not conflict with other meets. We hope everyone can come. The hunting is fantastic, grouse, pheasant, ducks, rabbits and Jacks. It is in the Flint Hills and is a beautiful area. We will send out the Hotel information when it gets closer.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Count Me In. are you going to try to get better rates through a couple hotels, Because I would like to book now so I don't wait till the last min. and forget. I know it is a ways off still, but I like to stay on top of things if I can.

    Thanks

    Here is the gist. We want to hang out with falconers and hunt with falconers. No other agenda. Please join AFC to help falconry. Not to go to a meet! If you are not a member. Please become one or come as my guest!

    Sign up for AFC is located at www.falconryconservancy.org

    Hope we see you there!!!

    I suspect I will come out a few days also. I hate the Thanksgiving day clash one has to deal with. Having to choose to put the falconry over family to attend the entire NAFA meet always bothered me. Family won out every year but one for me.
    Thanks,
    Wes

    That is the VERY reason we chose to stay away from holidays.

    Those dates sound like the time that the eagle club has their meet. I think they are in Garden city, Kansas.

    As with all meets, there will HAVE to be some organization. That is all in the works now or I would just post it up here. It will be coming soon. Hotel info etc. No worries!

    I would just as soon sleep in a tent or my FJ with my birds. Though, I have to agree with some others on here. I might be getting just old enough to lean towards a nice bed!
