It sure was great to be back at a Summer Convention and many have purchased their 2022 Legal Defense Tickets. I believe Katelyn Jindra sold 30 to date. If you were not able to make it to the convention, Katelyn can be reached at 218-820-5797. We are only selling 140 tickets and will be sold on a first come first serve basis so call early. Ticket are $50/individual and $90/couple.
Thanks goes out to all who donated traps from the raffle incentive program, we are grateful and excited to pass them on as raffle prizes for the banquet. Also, there were several people at the convention that stopped by with a donation, we really appreciate getting donations early.
The 2022 Legal Defense Banquet may seem like it is a long way away, however there is lots to do, and it will be here before we know it. We are already receiving some nice prizes and we never can have too many, so if you would like to donate, please contact me at 218-821-1236 or your Director/Co-Director. We do appreciate everyone’s help in collecting donations.
Plans are under way for the banquet and meeting, which is scheduled for January 22th, 2022. 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.
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.
Please watch the website for additional information as it becomes available. Wishing you all a great trapping season.
Dale Jindra - Chair, Legal Defense Banquet
