DISTRICT 8 REPORT
Our first meeting of the season went well. We discussed our meeting location and whether to relocate to a more central location, but decided to stay where we are. We are treated so well there and everyone is happy.
Charles Campbell attended his first meeting and signed up as a member.
Roger’s minutes from the convention and directors meetings were read and talked over.
A MFT lifetime membership plaque was presented to James Elburn, Norman Fraley was not present to receive his. Our State Assoc. now has 100 life members. Way to go guys.
NTA cash calendars were offered to all attending.
Discussions centered on dates to remember for coming conventions in our area, fur buyers , fur prices and what each member has been up to since our last meeting.
The saving of fox glands was discussed and a lure maker has been contacted for instructions of his preferences.
The last trappers ed class for the year was announced for all to pass on to any interested new trappers.
Maryland trapper Ron Leggett was profiled in Gary Jebson’s “Trappers I have Know” column in the Fur Takers Magazine in the October issue. Ron has done and continues to do so much for trapping and trappers. A great article and well deserved. We all need to thank him as we see him.
