Director - Brad Wobbrock
Greetings To All:
The Minnesota Trappers Association Summer Convention is August 1-3 at Barnum. In this newsletter you will see each districts duties at the summer convention.
District 8 had their Spring Meeting on March 22nd at the Pine Island Sportsman Club. We had about 88 members come and attend this meeting along with many directors and co-directors from other districts. We always have a good turnout at Pine Island and they now have a new club house which is very impressive. A special thanks to all of you that brought food and pop. And a huge THANK YOU to Pine Island Sportsman Club for letting us have our meeting there.
At our meeting, one of our young members, Linden Johnson's son, brought his wolf pelt and skull. Joshua trapped this wolf the first season this year in Minnesota. Thank you for bringing your pelt and skull for us to see.
Another huge Thank You goes to Cumberland's, Wiebke, Top Lot Stretchers, Bill Ruhland and Dick Davis for the prizes that were donated.
Kathy and I have sent out a special thank you, with some pictures to the Pine Island Sportsman Club for allowing us the use of their club.
I wanted to also thank all of the members that stayed after our meeting and lunch to help put 1000 zip ties kits together. It was wonderful to see all of the people and kids participating in making this a fun filled time and within a little over an hour, 1000 kits were finished. Some of you took kits for upcoming events. I still have 650 kits at my home for any of you that may need them. Please contact me and I will make arrangements for you to receive your kits.
Our District 8 Fall Meeting will be hosted by Cumberland's Northwest Trappers Supply, Saturday, August 23rd. This is their Annual Open House and Customer Appreciation Day. Doors open at 8 am and our district meeting will be at noon.
Have a safe spring trapping season and see you at the convention.
