More than 200 people paid $100 per plate to hear Sarah Palin speak at the Reno Safari Club this past weekend. It's being reported that Sarah spoke about her family, love of the outdoors and the importance of protecting the enviroment.
Unlike Sarah Palin’s other visits to Northern Nevada since 2008, only early birds with the Safari Club International got to hear the former Republican vice-presidential candidate and former Alaska governor speak in Reno on Saturday night.
Dressed in their formal evening attire, some 2,000 Safari Club members spent $100 each for Reno’s hottest ticket — Palin’s speech behind the closed doors of the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino's Tuscany Ballroom.
Palin’s words, however, could occasionally be heard.
During a 40-minute speech, she talked of her love for the outdoors and the “delicate balance” between hunting and fishing and the outdoors.
“... I personally understand the importance of protecting the environment,” she said.
Hunting and fishing, Palin said, are part of America’s “heritage” and the country’s “exceptionalism.” More
