The New Hampshire Trappers Association’s two-day fall meeting is scheduled for September 18th and 19th 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 am on Saturday morning. A vendor will be on hand for coffee and doughnuts. A pig roast has been planned for Saturday’s noon dinner. Meal tickets will be available in the Owl Brook building.
If you are interested in placing an advertisement in the fall program, or can sell an ad for a local business, contact Roger Burnham at 603-744-3561. Ad prices are: $25 for a quarter page, $50 for a half, $75 for a ¾ and $100 for a full page. A “sponsorship” advertisement includes a full page and a listing on the NHTA web page for a full year.
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: furs, traps, supplies, household goods, sporting goods, canned goods, garden produce; any item of interest to be used at this fund-raiser.
The ten-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: 603-895-0686.
Best to all.
