This will be our last BOD report of the year. This year has been much the same as other years, with its successes and disappointments. Now as the holidays and year end approaches I'd like to leave you with a thought. Each year we fight battles to preserve trapping for the future generations and we have been pretty successful so far. There is one area we seem to keep falling short and that is preserving the next generation of trappers. This year when you're making your Christmas shopping list and come to the part where you plan to buy some traps for that potential new trapper be sure to throw some time into that package before you wrap it up. Time is the most valuable and effective recruitment tool we have. The time and the quality of that we give to a young person will have a much greater affect on a young person and who they will become than anything else we may have to offer.
I hope each of you finish this year strong and move into 2019 with good health, good luck and a good vision for the future.
Thanks to each of you for what you do.
Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
