    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.
    Regards,
    Mike Wirth
    SCI Exhibit Program Manager

    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.

    Houston Safari Club is not part of SCI. I understand Dallas Safari Club has banned him also.
