2019 Desert Hawking Classic Meet Information

The DHC, one of the finest falconry meets in the Western US, is heading to Tucson! Game is plentiful, with cottontails, quail, black-tailed jacks, and Antelope jacks available!

We are pleased to announce that our banquet speaker this year will be Jeff Fincher from Tennessee. 

The AFA Desert Hawking Classic is coming to Tucson Jan 24-27, 2019. The meet hotel is the Radisson Suites Tucson. Rooms are limited so make your reservations immediately! Tucson is a busy town in the winter and we expect the hotel to be pretty full. The hotel will only hold our block of rooms through January 3rd, so please make reservations now!

When you call, tell them you are with the Arizona Falconers Association. Rooms are king suites with a king and queen bed. Room rates are $145 including pet fee. Birds and dogs are welcome! The rooms are large so consider doubling up to save money if needed. The Radisson will be a one-stop location, with all events, banquet, and the weathering yard at the hotel. There are other pet-friendly hotel options in Tucson; however, if you need pet-friendly rooms elsewhere, please make those arrangements soon! 

We are planning an apprentice workshop on Saturday morning, a lunch BBQ on Friday, and evening events Thursday and Friday, and of course, the world-famous AFA raffle!.

There is good game hawking in the area. Cottontails, quail, blacktailed jacks, and antelope jacks are all available!

Please use the Register/RSVP link above if you are coming. This year you can pre-pay for your registration online!
