Hunters attending the SCI convention in Reno shrugged off the economic doom and gloom of 2009 with strong interest shown in most overseas destinations. Visitors battled storms on the West Coast and cancelled flights. While getting to Reno was a problem for some, attendance was up on 2009. Confidence was clearly higher with a great deal of interest in hunts for 2011. With most hunters looking to take wives the search for premium accommodation and alternative activities to hunting was a feature of the show. This was clearly a strong motivating factor behind the growth in interest for Poronui, both for anglers and hunters.
This was the fourth year that Poronui have appeared at the SCI convention. It was great to catch up with old clients who called by to catch up or introduce friends - you know who you are! Providing complimentary New Zealand wine each afternoon was popular and ensured regular visitors to the stand each day! Thanks for all your support - we'll see you back there next year!
