HARRISBURG, PA — The Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs (PFSC) will hold their Fall Convention and host the “Pennsylvania Outdoors in Focus: Marcellus Shale Development and Penn’s Woods” Forum September 16-18, 2011 at the Harrisburg Radisson Hotel, 1150 Camp Hill By Pass, Camp Hill, PA.

In partnership with the Keystone Energy Forum, the outdoors forum on the Marcellus Shale development in Penn’s Woods and how it affects our outdoor activities will take place September 17th, 2011 at the Harrisburg Radisson Hotel. The forum gets underway at 9 a.m. and wraps up around 3 p.m.

Featured panel discussions will include:

Land Activity – Where is activity taking place and where will it be taking place?

Interaction with Marcellus Shale Development – Communicating and working with our regulatory and industry partners as development and growth continues.

Impacts on Penn’s Woods – How will drilling affect your outdoor activities?

There will also be a working luncheon where discussions will continue with Natural Resources Consultant James Mosher and former DCNR Deputy Secretary Jim Grace, who’s now the Maurice K. Goddard Chair in Forestry and Environmental Resource Conservation at Penn State, as guest speakers.

The forum and luncheon are free and open to the public, but preregistration is required.

Because they are holding the forum on Saturday during their fall convention weekend of September 16th-18th, the normal convention schedule will be slightly modified. Board meetings and most committee meetings will be held on Friday the 16th, the Conservation Committee meeting will be held Saturday following the forum. Saturday evening will wrap up with the Federation’s annual awards and fundraising banquet where Mike Zenzel of Columbia County will be inducted into the PFSC Hall of Fame. The General Delegate Session will be held Sunday morning where eligible delegates will discuss and vote on the issues relative to our outdoor heritage. Sunday hunting will again be at the top of the list for discussion. This year’s Fall Convention is being hosted by the Southern Division of the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen Clubs. Join us for a few hours or stay for the entire weekend!
