Director - Leon Windschitl
September - 2016
Hello fellow trappers!
The convention ended and it is time to write the report. Hats off to Dewey and his District 3 members. They all did an awesome job putting on the convention. All of your hard work paid off.
Thank you for all that volunteered for gate duty on Friday night. It makes the time go by when we have enough people to help and socialize with. Thanks to Greg Zieske and Scott Hill for supplying the grill and grilling while on gate duty. Just remember next year that there is also souvenir duty that we need volunteers for as well. We were shorthanded for that.
Brian Fischer did a great job on the Trappers Connection Program again this year. Keep up the great work, Brian.
I would like to congratulate the following people for the awards they won at the General Membership meeting on Saturday. First off, great job to District 7 for all the fur donations made to the Tanned Fur Project. District 7 donated the most fur. With this win, our district will have our name put to the highest valued gun and the funds do not have to come out of our district’s budget. Great job to all who donated. Leah Schmitt received Junior Trapper of the Year and Denise Windschitl received the President’s Award. Congratulations to all. Also congratulations to Cayson Hill on his first place win in the trap setting contest for his age group.
I would also like to thank Tom Boser for a job well done on the raffle. You put a lot of time in during the year.
District 7 will hold their fall meeting at Schmitt Enterprises on Saturday, October 1. Schmitt Enterprises will also be hosting their Customer Appreciation Open House. Please watch the website or the mail for your post cards with the day’s events. We are still in process of planning the day.
A reminder as you are out trapping this fall, make sure you take some pictures and send them to Tricia Coons, Newsletter Editor. She is always looking for pictures to put in the newsletters.
Please watch the upcoming newsletters for information on the winter meeting. I will again be in charge of the pelt handling contest. The board has made some changes to the contest, so make sure that you read the information later in this newsletter to see those changes. Also, tickets are available for the Legal Defense Banquet that is held the same evening as the winter meeting. Contact Buzz Neprud if you are interested in getting tickets. Plan early as they usually sell out. It is a nice evening out.
Until next time,
