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 $20,800 for the legal defense fund. The Board will continue to put this money to good use protecting your trapping interests.

A special thanks to Shannon Corhs for MCing the event and Luke Schubert for his Auctioneer Services, they really 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 Chris Holm, Aaron & Courtney Brevik, Katelyn Jindra, Eric Maigala, Deann & Brie Roggenkamp and Dewey Schmitz. 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).

Plans are under way for next year’s banquet and meeting, which is scheduled for January 16th, 2021. 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. Also, there is a conference room available at the hotel. It may be used by any MTA member at any time over the weekend.

Thank you
