As I get ready to do the report I think about the old saying, “the older you get the faster time goes.” I believe it, we were just getting started trapping awhile ago and now spring beaver season is just around the corner.
The winter meet is over and it went very well, maybe a smaller turnout but still good. The Legal Defense Banquet was great, good crowd, great food and lots of fun. Thanks to Buzz and the committee for doing a great job as usual.
The MTA convention is in Bemidji this year on Aug.14-15-16. Dan Swedberg has been doing all the leg work in Bemidji and things are looking good. We’ll mainly need help for set up and cleanup. So make your plans early and come planning on having fun and learning about trapping. The more people that help the easier it is for everyone.
It is election year again and Shawn Johnson will run again and I believe Jerry Larsen is also running. Ballots will be in the June newsletter and available at the convention.
Elections will be held at our fall district meeting this year. We will be electing a co-director, as Dan is planning on stepping down.
The Tanned Fur Project is still in need of fur. Tim needs muskrats but donate anything you can, even a donation of money for tanning. It is all needed and put to good use. With the fur prices down it should be easier to give to the project.
The raffle tickets are out so start selling. If you need more tickets call Steven Hogg @ 763-744-7059 and he’ll help you out.
Have a nice spring; make the best of the weather and God Bless.
