I am writing this article just prior to my leaving for Columbia, MO to attend the NTA Board Meeting and Convention. I will report on the meeting next month.
Don’t forget to attend the 2011 Fall Rendezvous on Saturday, September 17, 2011. We have some special programs for the kids at this year’s event. They are Laser Shot and Archery which are being provided by the Wildlife and Freshwaters Fisheries Division of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. This will be a great opportunity for you trappers to bring your spouse and kids and make a day of it.
The rendezvous is at The Club of Fosters @ McDaniel Field, Fosters, Al starting at 9:00am. Again this year, there will be demos in the morning, a catered noon meal, gun raffle, and auction. The annual business meeting will start at 1:00pm. This year the elected officer positions of Membership Secretary/Treasurer and Vice President, both two year terms, will be voted on. Current ATPCA members will be receiving complete information on the rendezvous in the next newsletter along with raffle tickets. The newsletter will be mailed the latter part of August 2011.
Tim Ross from KKAC Trapping Supplies will be at out rendezvous. If you have specific items that you would like Tim to bring to the convention please contact him in advance so that he can try to fill your order. This way he can have your order ready for you to pick up when you arrive at the rendezvous. Tim can be reached through the internet at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 1076 Highway 128, Sparkman, AK 71763 or by telephone at (870) 678-2874. To reduce confusion it would be best to send Tim an email or a printed list of your trapping needs. This will help insure you that he will have your supplies and save you the cost of shipping.
When you receive your renewal notice for the T&PC, please mail the two copies of the renewal notice along with your payment to Vickie Sievering , 291 Elam School House Road, Brent, AL 35034-2628, as soon as you receive it. If you procrastinate, you could miss an issue of the T&PC.
