Director - Pete Jonas
We had our winter/spring meeting at Johnson Fur on Saturday, February 2nd. We had another very good turnout. I want to thank Scott Johnson for letting us have our meeting there along with his Customer Appreciation Day. Thanks also go to Minnesota Trapline Products, Dave D'Aigle, and Leon Windschitl for donating supplies for our raffle.
This year District 5 is sponsoring two guns for our 2013 Summer Convention. Thanks to everyone who bought tickets, to help make this happen.
We are still in need of volunteers for the summer convention. If you can help out, please give me a call.
Jim Blakely is setting up the demo schedule, if anyone is interested in doing a demo on Friday or Saturday, please call him at (507) 259-6332.
Jerry Larsen and I will be handling the dealers, if anyone is interested in selling supplies, contact us. (320) 236-2410 for Pete or (320) 444-8398 for Jerry.
We are currently compiling phone numbers and contact information for state congressman and legislators in District 5 so you know who to contact about the 220/160 conibear issue. We hope to have this on the MTA web site and the next issue of trapper and predator caller. The MTA is also working on a letter to use as a guide for you to send to your representatives.
Please keep in mind the wild game feed for the summer convention. If you have extra vegetables, or can bring a dish to share, or help out with donations for Styrofoam plates, etc. it would be greatly appreciated.
