Presidents Report – October 2018
Hello folks…..time for the October report. There has been a BUNCH of activity w/ MTA over the recent several weeks! A HUGE THANK YOU to Duke Traps and Bass Pro Shops for making our 1st Convention a huge success! If you need supplies for the coming fall / winter seasons, please keep in mind that these 2 fine companies directly supported us…..so give them a shot at your future business!
Next, MTA Trappers College is quickly approaching! Our TC will be at Central Hills Baptist Retreat in West, MS beginning on Friday of next week, November 2-4. We have already met once, and we have another meeting tomorrow (If you were at the last meeting, we WILL NOT BE MEETING AT CHBR on Saturday as previously announced ….please contact me about tomorrow’s meeting if you don’t already know the details). If you are interested in helping with TC, please call or message me ASAP! We would love to have any and all participation from our members! TC for anyone 16 or under is FREE…..and for those 17 and older, the price is $100. This includes a weekend FULL of instruction, lodging, and ALL meals! That’s as cheap of a weekend as you will find anywhere…..and being around trappers and learning new skills at an amazing venue with awesome groceries is icing on the cake! You can register online at our website and family discounts are available.
Speaking of our website….the address is www.mstrappers.com and it’s continually being updated! If you haven’t been following….we are currently uploading a new video of our demos that we filmed at convention at the rate of one new video per week. These are all available for free on our website, and we welcome you to check them all out, as well as the several upcoming additions that are added weekly.
We have had several new members both to the Association as well as to our FB page. If you joined our FB page in the last year, you were asked if you would like to join the MTA. The vast majority of you said that you did wish to join, and that has also been made much easier by simply joining online with a credit card. Just look for the membership section and follow the prompts! We also now have our new, ultra cool tee shirts available for online purchase on the website as well, while supplies last! These are some of the best tee shirts we have ever done……so make sure to grab one for ever member of your family before they are all gone!
Finally, it’s very near trapping season! Many of us have already begun nuisance work with the cooler temperatures, and full furbearer season will be here in a short few days. Please be safe out there and have fun! This is the time of year that we dream of, so get out there and get you some!
Until next month, remember our sponsors as you do business this fall, come hang out with us at TC, visit our website for videos and instruction, pick up a tee shirt or JOIN MTA at our website, and Tight Chains!
