60th Annual Convention
Spearfish, South Dakota
June 20-25, 2021
Once a year
the ANS, Ltd. has a National Convention in June or early July.
In order to give all of our members the opportunity to attend, we rotate the convention
sites around the country.
The 2021 national convention will be in Spearfish, South Dakota (KSPF). The convention was there in 2002, and everyone had a great time.
Black Hills-Clyde Ice Field has one paved runway of 6,400 feet (13 -
31) and two unpaved runways. The field elevation is just shy of 4,000 feet.
Badlands National Park is a 1.5 hour drive from Spearfish (https:// www.nps.gov/badl/index.htm). These striking geologic deposits contain one of the world's richest fossil beds. Ancient mammals such as rhino, horse, and saber-toothed cat once roamed there. The park's 244,000 acres contain an expanse of mixed-grass prairie where bison, bighorn sheep, prairie dogs, and black-footed ferrets live today. For those interested in fishing, the nearby D.C. Booth National Historic Fish Hatchery was established in 1896. It was constructed to propagate, stock, and establish trout populations in the Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming. After a very successful fish production history, the Hatchery ceased operations in the mid-1980s and reopened with a new mission and partnerships to help preserve the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's historic and cultural heritage.
