I just wanted to give you an update on what has been happening with AHNi – Australian Hunting Net Inc
– our new AHN hunting club…
As you may be aware AHNi was officially launched on the 1st August and in that short time the club has already grown to sixty paid-up members. AHNi has separate forums at the top of the AHN forum but only one of them can be viewed by non-AHNi members. That is if your aren’t a member yet there are other forums up there that you cant see!! Ooooohh ….secrets!! ;D
In recent days we have been working at establishing some dedicated work groups – Hunting Resources
, Political Lobby
, Media & PR
and AHNi Events & Activities
. Each of these focused groups will have six elected official representatives .... although all AHNi members will be able to participate in their daily activities.
The Hunting Resources group will be responsible for building a hunting resources database and developing a network of club properties and hunting access. The Political Lobby Group will be responsible for directly lobbying legislators and government departments for the benefit of AHNi members. The Media & PR group will represent AHNi members and hunting and firearms owners in a positive light to the media. The Activities & Events group will organise and coordinate AHNi events and functions , including target shoots, postal shoots, fund raisers, raffles, social functions, etc.
If you have been thinking about joining but haven’t done so yet or think you might like to nominate yourself for an official position for these work groups – then you had better get in there and sign up!! Nominations close on the 27th of this month. Membership is only $50 per annum and family membership is available. For membership details look here - Application Form
Benefits to members include $10M public liability insurance
, access to our hunting resources database
and in the future - access to club properties
. AHNi is recognised in NSW and Victoria as a genuine reason
to get a firearms licence and we are busy working on acceptance in other states. In states like WA – we are hoping that when we have club properties signed-up, genuine reason requirements will be met for those members living there. In the Political Lobby Group we will be working hard to meet and verify these requirements in other states and to address other issues important to AHNi members.
In addition, club and AHN sponsors offer AHNi members exclusive discounts and rebates to the club.
So if you have an interest in joining Australia’s first National approved Internet hunting club…swing by and have a look.
Thanks for your support
