Desert Hawking Classic coming soon!

The annual Arizona Falconers Association Desert Classic Meet is coming up soon (January 24th through 27th) and it is shaping up to be a great one! You can click here for the meet flyer. You can click here for the meet schedule. Our Saturday night banquet speaker will be Bruce Taubert, renowned wildlife photographer. You may have seen his work in numerous Arizona publications. He is looking for falconers who will allow him to photograph their birds in a variety of settings. Please let us know if you are interested in having your bird become a photo model! We will be having our apprentice workshop on Saturday from about 10 AM until 2 PM. This is a great free class for apprentices, pre-apprentices, and those just trying to figure out if they're interested in pursuing the art and sport of falconry. On Friday from 10 AM until 1 PM, we will be having a giant-hood making workshop. See how we transform a single mild-mannered sheet of coroplast into super hawkbox! We will also have the world-famous AFA raffle Saturday night at the banquet. All activities will be held at the meet hotel, which is the Holiday Inn in Casa Grande, AZ. Get your room reservations NOW! For more information contact Ken Mesch at  or Charlie Kaiser at See you in Casa Grande!
