SA HUNTERS’ LUCKY DRAW WINNER
Clive Aitchison of Maanhaarrand near Rustenburg is the lucky draw winner of a competition ran by SA Hunters to raise funds for the association’s court case against the Minister of Police.
Clive, who is not a member of SA Hunters, won a hunting rifle (Howa .308 Win or 6.5 Creedmoor); a Delta rifle bag; an Allan rifle strap; and a Leupold VX-3i 6.5-20x40 telescope sponsored by Sons of Guns, a firearms dealer in Parys.
He also won two packets of Titan bullets, the development of suitable loads for these bullets for the rifle of his choice and an impala hunt, sponsored by Helber Safaris. The estimated combined value of this prize is R30 000. Not a bad return for the R50 entry fee Clive paid (which goes towards the Legal Aid Fund of SA Hunters).
The SA Hunters Association has been involved in court action against the Minister of Police since 2016, regarding the relicensing of firearms and other matters related to the Firearms Control Act. The legal fees in this case are high and the competition was launched as a fundraising effort to cover some of the costs.
SA Hunters would like to thank its members, members of other associations, and the general public who bought tickets in support of the association’s legal fund. A similar competition might be offered again later this year.
