Summer Report 2022

The Beginner Trapper Connection Corner Report:

Bring the kids out! This program is designed for kids, youth, or any age beginner. All convention-goers are invited to stop and see what this program has been all about for the past eight years. BTC seeks to introduce beginners to the rationale, purpose, and techniques associated with modern fur harvesting.

Please refer to the schedule banner for topics, presenters, and sponsors and share with kids. This information can be found in the newsletter, MTA website, and Facebook page for easy distribution. A lot of work goes into this important introductory program. The organizers, generous volunteers, and sponsors work together to make BTC successful. If you happen to be at a sponsor’s booth when a troop of kids comes to claim their incentive prizes after the demonstrations are completed, will make anyone smile.

We are returning to our former layout as attempting to incorporate both adults and kids with the same demonstrations turned out to be unproductive and unfortunately much simply went over the heads of many young people. So we’re returning to building those essential foundations separately.

It was no problem lining up presenters for it seems we have plenty of instructors that have the heart to teach kids. Thank you for the volunteering. Fellow trappers thank your fellow members when you see them on the convention grounds running around assisting. I am always looking for presenter help if interested let me know. I am excited this year for Lauren Huchel who just received her certification a few years back and is helping as a presenter doing the topic of “Smells and Attractions”, on Friday. Have fun, Lauren!

Bring the kids! If they attend one or all fourteen demos, they will walk away with a different incentive prize donated by the demo’s sponsor after each presentation. If you are doing the math, that could be fourteen items. Some items to mention are a fur tail, lures, board stretchers, traps, grooming combs, and other miscellaneous “trapping stuff.

See you at the convention, Pass it On
