Hunters Expo, Banquet
and Live Auction

Event Cancelled due to COVID19, please bid on the items on our online auction.

Iowa SCI supporters,

Following CDC COVID-19 guidelines and direction from Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, Prairie Meadows Casino, Racetrack and Hotel shut down for 30 days beginning Monday, March 16 at 5:00 P.M. This shutdown caused the Iowa SCI Expo, Banquet and Live Auction event scheduled for March 28 to be cancelled. If you had a room reserved at the Prairie Meadows hotel, it has been cancelled and you should have been notified. If you have not been notified, please contact the hotel at 515-967-1000.

To help us continue to support important outdoor and educational programs over the next year, the Iowa SCI board would greatly appreciate if your registration fees could turn into a donation to the chapter. Thank you in advance for considering this. Please contact the Iowa Chapter Board of Directors via the contact section of the Iowa SCI website at if you would prefer a refund. We will not be applying 2020 registrations toward the 2021 event.

As we navigate this situation, we are planning some creative ways to replace the funds lost by the cancellation of our main fundraising event. The first is to move many of our Live Auction items online to If you have not registered with this company, please do so and have fun bidding online! You can bid online until bidding closes on April 5th. Stay tuned to the Iowa SCI website and the online hunting auctions website for specifics. Additionally, our annual summer picnic event on June 28th near Bondurant, Iowa will be re-branded for 2020 as our General Membership Meeting & Wild Game Feed. Other live and silent auction items that would have been available at our March 28th event will be sold/raffled here. Again, details will come via our newsletter and website.

And of course, we will be very happy to see all of you again at Prairie Meadows for our 29th Annual Iowa SCI Expo, Banquet and Live Auction on March 27, 2021!
