Fall 2018 Report

Greetings fellow trappers,

Well, as I write this report fall is once again upon us.  Bear season is open and it won't be long until the fall small game seasons begin.  Fall is a busy time of year and it's tough to pick a date for the fall meeting that doesn't conflict with something so we pick a date and live with it.  This fall it will be Sunday, September 30th, and like in the past, we will hold it at the Dallas Erickson residence north of Greenbush.  It's been working out pretty good at this location and I'd like to keep the opposing fall and spring meetings in different locations to serve the members in different areas.  The spring meeting will again be in Plummer but I'd like to have some kind of a little get together on the east side of the district as well to serve those members.  I'll be talking to Dennis about it and we'll see what we can come up with.  This report should be published ahead of the spring meeting and I'll be sending postcards out the first of the month.

The summer convention was a good success considering the state of the fur market it and the district 4 crew did a great job pulling it off.  I'd like to thank you members from D2 that donated your time at the gate and booth duties.  I had to leave early on Saturday to fulfill some family obligations and you volunteers that stuck around to the end saved my bacon so to speak.  It was decided that next years convention will be in Redwood Falls once again.  Brian Fischer and the men and women of district 7 will be hard at work making sure it goes off without a hitch.  Brian has promised me it won't be as hot as last time........

If you are not aware yet, the winter meeting will be held in Brainerd this year(actaully Baxter) at the Forestview Middle School, January 5th, 2019.  The legal defense banquet will follow that evening at the Brainerd American Legion. I strongly recommend this event if you can make it.  I have attended all of them since it's inception.  I will undoubtedly say a great time is had by all while raising money to keep our heritage a viable pursuit.   

In closing I'd like to remind everyone that this year is once again an important election cycle at the state level.  If you can make a point to contact those who are running for office in your legislative district and educate them on who we are and what we do and how they vote is important to you.  Lets face it, those who show up generally make the rules.  Even at the local level, county commissioners and town board members can be great allies.

In closing, don't forget that this association belongs to you the members and if there is anything I can do, give me a call or send an email.
