Washington DC – -( 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation. Throughout the year, CSF's communication will focus on the accomplishments of the past 20 years and also focus on the meaningful partner relationships that have been forged. At the same time, we will keep you informed on current activities of concern to our fellow sportsmen and women as we work hard to protect our hunting, fishing, and conservation rights and heritage at the nation's capital and state capitols across this country.

CSF Reception Welcomes Caucus Members To Washington

The Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation celebrated the return of sportsman legislators to Washington for the 111th Congress Tuesday night with a “Welcome To Congress” reception at the Rayburn Building. Thirty members of the United States Congress joined together for this yearly gathering of hunting, fishing, and conservation leaders, policy makers, and industry representatives.”I never thought as a young boy growing up in Oklahoma, shooting at my first deer, that one day I would be standing here as one of the leaders of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus,” said Caucus Co-Chair Congressman Dan Boren.

“It is great to see the leaders in this room who have done so much to preserve and protect hunting and fishing rights and habitat. It is an honor to be a part of the largest bi-partisan caucus of any kind in Congress,” said Caucus Co-Chair Congressman Paul Ryan.

This event is held to introduce newly elected representatives to the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus as well as welcome past and present caucus members. This year's reception reflected on the 20th Anniversary of CSF, and focused on legislative issues coming before the 111th Congress.

“As we celebrate our 20th Anniversary as an organization, we also celebrate the accomplishments and    dedication of our Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus members as they continue to lead the way in  improving hunting, fishing, and conservation opportunities,” said CSF President Jeff Crane.
