Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation Celebrates California Sportsmen's Heritage
June 5, 2014 (Washington, DC)Against the backdrop of Sonoma Valley, California, the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation (CSF) hosted the 2014 "California Wine & Wildlife," reception and dinner.

Bringing its mission to California, CSF was joined in Sonoma by members of the sportsmen's conservation community and other supporters to celebrate California's rich sportsmen's heritage. Attendees enjoyed a round of sporting clays at the Wing & Barrel Ranch followed by a reception and dinner. The evening served as an opportunity for the hunting and angling community to come together to discuss the importance for sportsmen and women to have a voice in the halls of government.


CSF President Jeff Crane welcomed guests and thanked everyone who made the event possible. "As we work with the bipartisan Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus (CSC) on Capitol Hill, we also work outside our nation's capitol with like-minded sportsmen and women in order to continue our mission throughout the states. Today's event gives us the opportunity to thank sportsmen and women of California who are supporting our hunting and angling traditions."


Past Chair and current member of the CSC, Representative Mike Thompson (CA), addressed the crowd. "We need to figure out how to come together to promote policy on conservation, hunting, and fishing for our children and grandchildren. If you're like me, you grew up hunting and fishing, and know how important it is," stated Rep. Thompson.


The Title Sponsors for the evening's event were: Cabela's Outdoor Fund and the Wing & Barrel Ranch. The Host Sponsors included: ATK, Bass Pro Shops, California Waterfowl Association, Holland & Holland, National Shooting Sports Foundation, Remington, Richard Childress Racing, Safari Club International, Shimano American Corporation and Paul Tuttle.

Since 1989 CSF has maintained a singleness of purpose that has guided the organization to become the most respected and trusted sportsmen's organization in the political arena. CSF's mission is to work with Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, recreational fishing and shooting and trapping. The unique and collective force of the CSC, the Governors Sportsmen's Caucus (GSC) and the NASC, working closely with CSF, and with the support of major hunting, recreational fishing and shooting, and trapping organizations, serves as an unprecedented network of pro-sportsmen elected officials that advance the interests of America's hunters and anglers.
