    I thought that AH members would be interested to learn about this new Game Fair that is being put together by Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) and Quail Unlimited (QU). I heard about it from Joe Hosmer, the President of SCIF, it sounded excellent and very much in the tradition of a European style game fair which really appeals to me. It seems to be very much geared towards families spending quality time together...


    EPIC Outdoor Game Fair, The Southeast's largest Game Fair

    Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) and Quail Unlimited (QU) have collaborated to create the 1st Annual EPIC Outdoor Game Fair. EPIC is an acronym for Education, Participation, Instruction, Competition. It describes the importance of the fair and the SCIF and QU's joint vision for America's largest outdoor heritage Game Fair.

    This event is uniquely poised to become the greatest sporting tradition of its kind anywhere in the United States. It is scheduled to take place in Atlanta at Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club, 20 minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. September 23 - 25, 2011

    Airport and Hotel Accommodations
    The Game Fair is set in the outdoors, away from the city's hustle and bustle, so it is hard to believe the world's busiest airport is less than 30 minutes away. Guests from out of town can find accommodations near the airport and enjoy easy access to the Game Fair. Many local hotels are within minutes of the event and limited RV parking will be available onsite. For information, call the Game Fair information line at (800) 407-7849 or visit their website at www.epicgamefair.org.
