By this time our convention will be history.For the first time in a lot of years someone else is cooking the dinner. New officers will be taking over. It is a time of transition for the N J T A. But I am sure things will go on better than ever. Several people have agreed to takeover some of the most important jobs the assocation has, and their new ideas and energy will only be a plus for the group. Remember they will need the help and support of all members. So do not be afraid to step up and offer to help. They will need manpower for the shows and day to day things the N J T A does.
Our trapper education class was beyound our wildest expectations. 74 students took the course, and all passed. Without a doubt this was the largest class in trapper ed history. What a great thing to see. And everyone was really into what was going on. Lots of questions showed the interst all the students had.
Many of you know I am running for the NJ Fish & Game Council. Hopefully things will go my way and I will be elected. So this is my final report as president. I will continue to be involved with the trappers association but only as a member, not as an officer. I feel I can do a lot more as a councilman for the sportsmen and women of this state in the new position. But as you all know my first love is trapping.
Once again we will have a booth at the Edison outdoor show in January. This show is getting bigger and better since the new management group took over. Stop in and see the biggest deer taken in NJ last year. Plus about one hundred other booths of outdoor related supplies, guides, and all the other good stuff we like to have and do.
That’s enough for this time. Remember, have fun, be safe, and take kid with you. They are our future. — Jim DeStephano
