Summer 2020 Report
I hope everyone finds themselves safe and healthy in these strange times. There isn't much to report as much of everything has been cancelled. As many of you may have already heard, our summer convention has been canceled. There will still be a raffle so check the raffle report for the details.
We held our district meeting back in march, which had a good turnout. Thanks to Matt Carlson for buying fur there and also thanks to Dale and Kaitlyn Jindra for helping out. We had some donations to the tanned fur project from Mike Smieja and CO Dan Star.
We are looking for some beaver pelts donations here in district 4 as we are going to sponsor the fur blanket for the 2021 raffle. Please let me know if you have any to spare.
We are planning on having a youth field day in early September. As long as we are allowed to. Be sure to watch the website as it gets closer for updates.
That's all for now, stay safe.
Co-Director - Dale Jindra
Winter 2019 Report
First, I would like to thank Behrant Miller and Matt Carlson for their service to district 4 and the organization, and look forward to seeing them both at future events. Thank you to the District 4 members who entrusted me to represent you in this position.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself for those of you who don’t know me. I am Dale Jindra and grew up trapping in central Minnesota and now reside in Brainerd with my wife of 31 years. We have two wonderful daughters who also have a passion for trapping and the outdoors. We are lucky to have gained a son-in-law Aaron who also has a passion for the outdoors. In May of 2018, Courtney and Aaron blessed our family with our newest trapper, Asher. I suspect that Asher will not be far behind as he grows and tags along with dad and grandpa on the trap line. It is pretty fun to have three generations trapping and I look forward to passing my love for trapping and the outdoors to the future generations. As a family we also are passionate about bear, goose and deer hunting, really anything we can do outdoors as a family is my happy place.
Our family enjoys volunteering for the MTA in different positions because we believe in serving the membership and protecting our rights to trap. Like most families, we have many stories to share and enjoy sharing our passion for the sport. I look forward to doing this through education for our youth and the general public. My hope as your co-director is that my love for the sport will aid me in doing a good job with this position by serving and representing you to the best of my abilities. Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns – cell 218-821-1236 or email email@example.com.
Thank you for reading my ramblings, have a safe and productive trapping season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
