VICE PRESIDENT’S REPORT
I promised President Joel Blakeslee that I would step up and take some of the administrative load from his shoulders, so here goes my first report.
Jim and Judi Curran and their highly qualified staff did their usual wonderful job of carrying off the Fallon Fur Sale in February. Jim has posted most of the information on the NVTA Web site. Overall, the sale was a success, especially when I think back to the rumors and doomsday predictions voiced at the first of the season. If you haven’t accessed the NVTA Web site (http://www.nvtrappers.org), it’s a great asset and we’re lucky to have Karen Smith act as the moderator for the Web site. If you have any photos or news information, please e-mail it to me (Toblertruman@lvcm.com) and I’ll make sure Karen gets it posted on the site.
Just a reminder to NVTA Board members, we will hold our annual Board meeting in Fallon June.
Our summer Rendezvous will be held the weekend of July 10-12 at Hunt’s Canyon, north of Tonopah. Mike Miller has volunteered to head up the event, and Mike says he’s going to be barbecuing a pig, so come and bring your appetites. We’ll also have some games, contests, prizes and so forth. I’ve got some good demos lined up for this event — some that I know you haven’t seen and that are very informative. Come and plan to spend a few days.
We are planning another Youth Trappers Day. Last year’s event was a great success, with many valuable demonstrations, participation from NDOW, tons of prizes and some fun games. This year will be even better. We already have a stockpile of prizes for everyone that attends, so please keep this important event in mind. We will probably meet again in September at Mt. Charleston.
