The New Hampshire Trappers Association’s two-day fall meeting is scheduled for Sept. 19 and 20 this year. The event will be held again this year at the Owl Brook Hunter/Trapper Education Center in Holderness, NH. We are looking for volunteers to conduct demonstrations for attendees to pick up trapping tips old or new, contact Roger Burnham, Fall Meeting organizer, at 603-744-3561 if you are interested. Gates will open for the public at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning. A vendor will be on hand for coffee and doughnuts.
The auction to be held at the fall meeting is in need of donations from trappers and friends of trappers. Please contact a director to relay any item of interest to be used at this fundraiser — furs, traps, supplies, household goods, sporting goods, canned goods, garden produce. A few individuals that are liquidating their large inventories of used traps will be at this auction to offer their lots.
The 10-gun raffle tickets have been distributed to directors so ask around for one, two or several and try to get these tickets sold. Steve Schlangen is in charge of this fundraiser. If you need to contact him directly, his number is 603-895-0686.
The new Miss NH pageant winner, who received the donated fisher coat, will be in attendance at either the August or September Director’s Tuesday night meeting. She will make a short presentation.
Best to all.
— Paul DeBow, Grafton County director
