Hi All,

Just wanted to send a quick reminder that there are just a few days remaining to book the early bird rate for the 2012 HMANA conference. Julie Brown from HMANA will be on bird calls radio this weekend talking about the event and I just found out that Swarovski Optik will be bringing their new line of ATX modular scopes for people to have a look over the weekend, just another reason to come down.

Looking forward to seeing a few of you here.
