    I'll definitely be there and am planning on doing an AH meet up as we did last year... more info to come on that later this year! I'd also like to know who may be planning on attending and what days? I'm curious to know from anyone who may be attending, would you prefer doing a meet up on the convention floor during the day as we did last year at a member's booth or an early evening happy hour type get together?

    I was wondering if you guys did this or not. With me bing new on here I thought it would be nice to meet and put a face with some of the members, outfitters, and sponsors on this forum and have a drink or something after the days events. I'm really glad I stumbled across this forum by accident. Really enjoying reading everybody's comments, advice, stories, and looking at their photos while hopefully contributing back. Jerome the one thing I really appreciate on here is the latest news part in Africa that you and the members keep posted on here. It sure makes it easier then searching the web or waiting for a publication to come for this info. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you at next years show. Keep up the good work on the site everybody. WILL

    I'll be there for the whole 9 yards with the Adam Clements Safari Trackers crew. I might be interested in a drink one night someplace after the show closes.

    Cost of SCI show in Las Vegas

    We live a short distance from Las Vegas (4 hrs drive) but have been doing the DSC show for years. With SCI being so easy for us to get to we are trying to find out a ball park cost on the daily attendance fee. We have the SCI joining fee but nothing is mentioned about the daily fee. Can anyone venture a guess or what the general public daily fee was last year? Thanks.

    The minimum membership requirement is a one year national membership priced at $65. I think last year the registration fee for the entire four days of the convention was $260, and the one day entrance was around $100.
