Co Director Larry Anderson
March - 2016
Hope everyone has been busy enjoying our wildlife resources this fall and winter. The winter MTA meeting is over and it sounds like it was quite successful. I understand only about 20% of the members voted on nonresident trapping which passed.
The Spring Board of Directors meeting will be March 5th at Fergus Falls. Please let me or someone know if there is something you feel that needs to be brought out at this or any meetings.
The spring meeting for District 3 will be on the 11th of March at the West Building of Ottertail Power in Fergus Falls. The address is 216 South Cascade Street. We will discuss the summer convention plans, update on the board meeting and listen to your input for convention plans. I know that the convention is a way off but there are two other groups having things going on at the same time so you MUST make your reservations early. I can't stress this enough. Mention you’re with the MTA and you get a great discount. Most of the places have a good cancellation policy if something comes up. You also get discounts at many restaurants for showing your convention button.
The convention is August 11th, 12th, and 13th. This is a Thursday, Friday and Saturday Convention. Note this is a change from years past. Camping can start as early as Monday the 9th. Please call Dewey or myself if you have questions. We need everyone there for a great convention.
Bring any fur you have for the Tanned Fur Project to the District meeting. It sure is easy to donate with the low fur prices. I checked and it doesn't sound like the auctions are going well. Maybe next year!
I hope to see you all at the spring meeting.
