    I am looking for Booth Numbers of members who are displaying at the 2012 Dallas Safari Club Convention.

    I am only spending 2 days at the convention and I am putting my agenda together and want to visit our members first.

    I got an inspiration the other day and thought I would have a look.
    I decided to look at the Exhibitors list for DSC 2012 and cross reference it with the complaints of hunters on AH.

    I think people assume, as I have in past, that there is some type of screening that goes on before anyone can be an exhibitor at one of these shows.

    NOT!

    Pay your money and you get space, as illustrated by the Application Contract Exhibitors have to fill out.

    This is the only restriction I can find in the contract:

    "Exhibitor consents to DSC's right to prohibit any exhibit, Exhibitor or
    proposed exhibit that, in DSC's sole opinion, is not suitable for the
    Convention. DSC may exercise this reserved right at any time prior to or
    during the Convention. The reservation concerns entities, persons, items,
    audio or video digital recordings, images, printed matter, conduct and all
    other things that may affect the Convention, DSC, its members or the
    hunting industry. DSC reserves the right to prohibit from exhibiting at the
    Convention any outfitter, guide or professional hunter who is not a member
    in good standing of a recognized regional state, provincial or national
    professional hunting association."


    Yet, nowhere on the Exhibitor application form is any requirement to provide this information or proof thereof!!

    So, on to the point:
    There are FOUR outfits that have earlier or active complaints/concerns/issues against them by hunters that are exhibiting at DSC 2012.

    Adam Clements-Safari Trackers, Inc. 1244-47
    Frontier Safaris C510
    Impala African Safaris 2654
    Safrique, Lda. 1035/36


    I am cross referencing publicly available information.

    BUYER BEWARE!

    We invite you to stop by at booth no 1956, hall E to say hello.
    It is essential to be prepared otherwise you could leave the hunting convention being more confused than ever before!

    James, no disrespect intended to you having to perform Civic duty but I hope you'r not selected for jury duty.

    I was looking forward to meeting you and your wife, and had already informed my wife that my AH.com buddy was also attending with his wife and that they were coming for a visit.
    My Agent has his wife attending and my good buddy from S.Carolina has his wife and young Daughter attending also, all in our booth !

    Was going to be quite a crowd, but family orientated.

    I secretely hope they find a reason to "excuse" you.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Paul

    My wife said the same thing today as i am filling out the form.

    The section about family and close friends working for law enforcement and prosecution attorney offices probably will leave me out of the selection box. I had to go to a additional sheet to provide names and dates.

    So i am thinking positive and am looking forward to meeting you and your wife.
