The Charleston Yacht Club was the setting for the annual banquet of the Lowcountry Chapter of Safari Club International (SCI). The March 10 dinner and auction was held with a special honoree in attendance,  Army Sgt. Eric Edmundson of New Bern, N.C., who is the 2012 SCI Pathfinder Award winner. An Iraq war veteran, Edmunson suffered serious injury while serving our nation, but he has not let that deter him from attending the annual SCI Wounded Warrior hunts in the ACE Basin - look for more about Edmundson in the April 5 edition of the Charleston Mercury. A groundswell of patriotism buoyed the entire evening as SCI patrons dined on quail, reflected on past big game hunts, and enjoyed gathering in their cocktail attire for a grand evening. Funds raised at the banquet go to benefit outreach programs that the local chapter supports.The Lowcountry SCI chapter has a fine website, thanks to web guru Mark Peterson, and the chapter will host a sporting clays event at Kensington Plantation on April 28 for prospective new members. Remember, SCI is First For Hunters!
