Director - Leon Windschitl
September - 2017
Hello fellow trappers!
Our convention is over for another year. I would like to send a big thank you out to Pete Jonas and his entire family as well as to District 5 for putting on a great convention. Thank you for all you do!
I would like to say congratulations to Stephanie Thompson and Angie Cohrs for their placing in the women’s skillet toss. Stephanie is the wife of a district 7 member and took first place. Angie Cohrs took 4th place. That is the way to represent district 7 ladies! Would also like to congratulate Shannon Cohrs on his 4th place finish in the trap setting contest and the Conibear setting contest. Cayson Hill also participated in the men’s division in the trap setting contest and the Conibear setting contest. This was Cayson’s first year in the men’s division and finished in the middle. Nice job guys!
I would like to congratulate Todd Roggenkamp and Dewey Schmitz for being elected president and vice-president.
District 7 will have their fall meeting on Saturday, September 30, 2017. Reminder: This is an election year and we will have elections for director and co-directors. We will have 2 vacant spots to fill. If you are interested in filling one of these positions, but have any questions, please give me a call and we can talk about it. This will be at Schmitt Enterprises in New Ulm. We are finalizing the demo schedule, so make sure to check the website or watch for your post card. We do know that Lesel Reuwsaat, Jim Gough, and our own Brian Fischer are in the line-up for demos.
The sustaining donor program is underway. The patches are available through the membership coordinator or contact myself if you did not pick one up at the convention. This year the proceeds will be dedicated to the Tanned Fur Project, to help with tanning expenses. Anyone who donates will receive a patch and your name will be listed in the sustaining donor section of the newsletter. If you have any questions on this, please feel free to contact me.
The tanned fur project can always use fur. With the lower prices on fur it is always a good time to donate.
The winter meeting will be January 6 at East Central School in Askov. I will again be in charge of the Pelt Handling Contest and Jr Pelt Handling Contest. Please check out the contest information in this newsletter. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
The Legal Defense Banquet will be on January 6 at the Community Center in Askov. Tickets are now on sale. This is a great event if you have not been there. Please contact Buzz Neprud if you are interested in purchasing tickets. Make your plans now to attend.
Until next time!
