Last Chance for Leicas! Join, Renew, of Gift a Membership by June 30!

Back in 2015, when I had the opportunity to test Leica’s revamped Trinovid line of binoculars in muggy Honduras, I said that Leica’s second generation Trinovids offered the red dot quality you expect at a price point you necessarily wouldn’t.

They’re very nice bins, and I’m not just saying that because Leica has been a valuable partner to the ABA for many years. But Leica has always been good to us and to our members, and this month’s drawing of a pair of Leica’s swanky new Trinovid HD 8×32, to be given to a lucky birder who joins, renews, or gifts a membership before the end of June is just another example.

If you want to get involved in this drawing, make sure you join/renew/gift by June 30 and check the box that says you are joining/renewing/gifting because of this drawing.

But here’s the kicker. If you’ve already joined because of one of our previous drawings (and you did not win), you are automatically entered into this one. No need to purchase another membership or renew for an additional year (though if you do, we surely appreciate that).

What this also means is that if you join because of this drawing, you can be entered into future drawings. For the rest of the year all members will be eligible for all drawings. You will just need to visit a special website to opt in to those drawings every month.  Joining now, however, means you will be set up to do so for the rest of the year.

So what are you waiting for? There’s no time like *now* to join the ABA! And make sure you let us know that the drawing sent you!
