Notebook: Greensburg man named to SCI committee
A Greensburg man is one of two Pennsylvania residents named to Safari Club International committees.
Larry Rudolph will serve as vice chair of the SCI government affairs committee over the next year. In that role, he will help monitor legal issues affecting wildlife management, hunting rights and SCI members.
In the recent past, his committee has helped defeat a lawsuit brought by the Fund for Animals and other groups that challenged the right to bring legally-harvest game back to the United States.
The other Keystone state man named to a committee post is Franklin’s Michael Drenowski. He will serve as a member of the SCI convention committee, acting as a liaison between SCI and the exhibitors who attend the group’s annual convention, set for Jan, 21-24 in Reno, Nev.
