Default 2023 Hall of Fame Dinner

Seventh Parker Gun Foundation Induction Ceremony and Hall of Fame Banquet

The Parker Gun Foundation will host the Seventh Parker Gun Foundation’s Hall of Fame Banquet
and Induction Ceremony at 7 pm on April 28,2023 to honor its new inductee.

This year’s inductee is Louis Parker, one of the authors of the Parker Story and a member of the Parker
Family.

The event, as usual, is in conjunction with the Southern SXS Championships in Sanford NC. It is a very popular social and dinner event.

Carolina Trace Country Club in Sanford, at 2100 Country Club Drive, will be our venue. The food will be
excellent, the hospitality warm and for our shooters and collector/buyers, the location is very close to
the Southern SXS and the PGCA hotel.

The venue is fabulous, the guests are at the top of our collecting and shooting fraternity and the
distinguished inductee is richly deserving of the honor.

As is our custom, we encourage our honorees to bring some of their favorite items from their collections to display for us. We know that Louis will have some special treasures on display. It will be a night to remember.

Tickets are $125 and are available on a first come first serve basis. They will only be available be sending a check payable to The Parker Gun Foundation to George Purtill at –
George Purtill
Hall of Fame Dinner
2146 Main Street
Glastonbury, Ct 06033
Space is limited to 100 people. Tickets will not be available at the door. Questions- Please email

I don't remember a PGCA hotel being mentioned in 2022. What is the PGCA hotel this year?

We haven’t decided yet if we’re driving or flying.

We’ll let you know when we decide.
