Spring is right around the corner and that means convention season is coming up soon. The western convention, hosted by the South Dakota Trappers Association will be held in Sturgis, SD, on June 9th & 10th.The national convention will be in Pecatonica, IL, on July 27th, 28th & 29th. I have been working with the office to get the NTA SWEEPSTAKES organized. Hopefully, like last year, we will be able to put together a very attractive list of prizes, which will appeal to a broad range of folks, not just trappers. Certainly, this list will again include numerous high quality firearms as these have proven very popular. Of course, this is where we need your assistance. We have heard from several state affiliates and donors. Thank you to all that’s have already contacted me.
The annual sweepstakes is tremendously popular with our membership and has become a vital element to funding the defense of our trapping rights and the operations of the NTA. All sponsor or prize commitments must be made by April 28, 2017, in order to allow time for printing and mailing of flyers and tickets. Donors should contact General Organizer, Dave Shuttleworth, with any questions or donations. Please help support the NTA by contributing to the 2017 NTA Sweepstakes.
We continue to work together to get the NTA history into a book format. We have asked members for information to add to what Toby Hutchinson has put together. Several people have contributed and we are in the process of gathering hard copies of magazines and other information to help also. We are eager to get information from multiple sources and are continuing to make progress with this project.
It is always a pleasure to talk with the members and affiliate. Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns. I am willing to assist members and affiliates however I can and look forward to continuing to build relationships throughout this year.
