Minnesota Trappers Association
Land, Water, and BTC Demos at Convention 2022
Land, Water, and Beginner Trappers Connection demos:
It should be no secret and I am happy to say that the 2022 summer convention will be held in Wadena MN. The fairgrounds come with newly constructed buildings for vendors and all of our demo programs will be under the roof. No tents are needed for 2022.
I have volunteered to set up the demo schedule for the 2022 convention. If you are interested in doing a presentation feel free to call me at 507-276-6322. The land and water demo format will stay the same. As always, we are looking for variety, quality, and new individuals that would be comfortable stepping up and sharing skills.
Beginner Trappers Connection Corner will take a little bit of a different spin. We still will have time slots set aside and will still offer incentive prizes so kids have to run around and search out objects, for the comments are too strong in favor of the interaction methods we have developed. This year we also have a Kids Committee started to continue our focus on making this a family event. If you reflect back on last year, you will remember me writing about the observation of complete families that were attending. Remember this comment?
“Thanks for the absolutely fantastic weekend!!! Wow! I am still so shocked that we got to participate in something so incredibly exciting!! I brought my three kids as my son was interested in trapping, and I saw “children’s games “on the events schedule. I have to tell you, the girls were so enthralled with the programs on trapping, they didn’t participate in a single game or contest! We all had a blast and learned a TON! I am emailing all my friends and telling them what a great time we had, with pictures as “proof” lol. You have done a LOT of work and it absolutely shines through! Thanks for the awesome experience and super useful items! We bought a few things we needed (like trap dye and trap setters) and hope to return next year with my children’s catches!!”
I will use the website to keep people informed on the demo listings. Keep this in mind, the website is a tentative schedule. The day of the convention trumps what gets posted. Let me take time also as a reminder when posting on MTA’s web or other sites be conscious of what is being posted.
