The first 4 on my list are very well attended.

The fifth one is my personal favorite. Not so much for attendance but rather for location and a certain event at the rondy.

I'm a little bias, but I'd say Wi. This past fall, we had a guy there from the Montana trappers association. He spoke at the annual meeting about the then proposed referendum to greatly diminish trapping in Montana. He was telling me how incredibly impressed he was with WTA's annual convention.

The FTA national convention will have large attendance as well. This year it's in Manchester, Iowa.

Mn. State convention is not a really big one typically, especially when its the northern part of the state.

PA and WI have the biggest state conventions, based on attendance I believe. If WI, could set it on a different weekend than IA, they and Iowa would both have much bigger conventions. Too bad both states seem too bullheaded to change. LOL

It's been a few years since I was to NY but I hear it is starting to rival PA in quality.
