September - 2017
Hello my friends
Thanks to Litchfield and District 5 for a great convention and all the hard work they put into the event to make it successful. Good comments received on behalf of the MTA’s organization. Thank you to all other board members and volunteers that came to the plate to help with setup, activities and cleanup. It truly is a team effort.
I enjoyed the responsibility of lining up all the demos for the land, water and Beginner Trappers Connection. Second year assigned with this task. The job and connections are growing. In summary all things went well and for the most part all demos had a respectable crowd. Between the 3 programs, 54 demos were presented with zero no shows. Please read BTC and demo report and see the listing for the in depth details in this issue. I personally have thanked all the prize supporters. If you have the chance, thank the presenters and vendors as well. The support was plentiful.
I did have the opportunity to visit a few events around my area and put a short program with my collection of pelts. One being a men’s church group (25 people), a Girl Scout camp (36 young girls), and a Youth Day at the Nicollet Conservation Club, (approx. 245 participants). All these event went well and me as a trapper felt appreciated.
A District 7, trapper’s education field day, has been schedule for Sept. 16th, 2017. I will be the lead instructor. Program will start at 9:00 and finish at 2:00 pm. See the MTA web site for signup details or call me 507-276-6322.
Our district 7 fall meeting is scheduled for Saturday, September 30th. Gerald and Doreen will be hosting the meet at their business location. It is Schmitt Enterprises Inc and an open house will be held as well. Doors will be open by 9:00am.
Up to 60 plus gallon of dirt dried ready to wax and soon to bring out the traps. Time to get ready.
Pass it on, Brian
