I apologize if I missed anyone, the committee is truly grateful for each and every donation received. Please support these donors and thank them for supporting our organization. Because of the generosity of so many donations and generous people in attendance, we were able to raise $21,530 for the legal defense fund. The Board will continue to put this money to good use protecting your trapping interests.

A special thanks to Luke Schubert for MCing the event and for his Auctioneer Services, he helped make the event fun and run smoothly. Also, the many volunteers who helped run the games and raffle items, we really appreciated everyone who took the time to help and make it a great event.

I would also like to again thank all of the committee members Dewey Schmitz, Katelyn Jindra, Eric Maijala, Deann Roggenkamp, Troy Hanson and Don McGaffey. They all volunteer many hours and it does not go unnoticed. If you have suggestions or potential donors for next year’s banquet, please feel free to contact any one of the committee members or myself (218-821-1236). It would be greatly appreciated if we could receive donations from around the state. We will be accepting donations at the summer convention, if you would like to bring them then.

Plans are under way for next year’s banquet and meeting, which is scheduled for January 22th, 2022. Tickets will be available starting at the summer convention, and you may contact Katelyn Jindra. The Banquet will be held at the Brainerd American Legion (708 Front St, Brainerd), the winter meeting will be at Forestview Middle School (12149 Knollwood Dr, Baxter) and a block of rooms are available at the Super 8 Hotel located at 14341 Edgewood Dr, Baxter.  This is our host hotel and we appreciate them working with us again. You can make your reservation by calling, 218-828-4288, please let them know you are with the MTA, this will allow you to receive the MTA room rate.

Thank you
Dale Jindra - Chair, Legal Defense Banquet
