    Default Impala African Safaris Arnold Payne not allowed to exhibit at SCI

    I have just been sent the following email via an AH member:


    Per decision of Safari Club International (SCI) show management, Impala African Safaris under ownership of Arnold Payne, is currently not accepted to exhibit at any future SCI shows. Future actions regarding official company and/or individual suspension will be determined pending current ethics investigation.

    Keep the ball rolling.

    It would please me to no end to have SCI lead the way in screening ALL the outfitters who apply to attend their exhibitions/shows.
