Spring 2019 Report
Hello my friends,
I hope all is well as the 2018 trapping season is upon us. Face Book posting are plentiful. It is good for fellow trappers to get out and I get excited when hearing about the kids holding up their catches. As for myself, I am patiently waiting till our MN slug season is done before I go full bore on canine trapping.
Sunday Sept.23rd, our district held its fall meeting at Schmitt Enterprises Inc. Thank you to Gerald and Doreen for hosting and providing the food, drinks, donations and all the work they put into the arrangements. Also happening that day was Schmitt’s annual open house, Trapper Education Field Day and outside demos starting at 9:30 ending at 3:30. It was a great turnout on a perfect day, approx..118 grilled pork chop meals being served. We certified 20 more participants for future trappers. We ran a membership incentive as well that ended up with 11 out of the 20 signing up for the first year membership. May our foundation benefit from the program. During the day’s drawing we raised over a $1126.00 in funds to support both our general raffle and the legal defense fund. Thank you to our demo presenters, Shannon Cohrs, Lesel Reuwsaat and Leon Windschitl. Thank you to our donation contributors, Brian Fischer, Leon Windschitl, Lesel Reuwsaat and Schmitt Enterprises Inc.
Tuesday Sept 25th, Tyler (co-director) and myself met with the Redwood Falls Fairgrounds Board to work and talk through expected duties. We are well on our way with making the arrangements for the 2019 State convention which will be held in Redwood Falls, MN next Aug.1-3rd. It is great to have the such support from their community. May individuals from the association have also come forward in advance to volunteer their time at the convention. That’s what we need to make it great. Give me a call and I will be happy to assign you to a committee. I encourage the involvement.
Saturday Oct. 6th, was our fall MTA Board meeting. It was held at Triple R Grill and Bar in Kimball. MN. A long day with much accomplished be sure to read the minute notes within this magazine.
Tentatively planning our Spring meeting for Feb. 16th, 2019. It will be held near Dovray, MN in Loy’s barn. Same place as previous spring meetings. I will put more detail on the web site and will be sending out cards. Put it on the calendar and our District would love to have visitors.,
Good luck, stay safe and let’s pass it on.
