Y'all did a great job putting on a very successful convention. I know there was a lot of hard work that went into it, and us vendors really appreciated it. Your efforts did not go unnoticed.

If this convention is any indication of how the other conventions I'll be attending this year will go, it will be a very good convention year. My sales at this convention was the one the best I've had at a PA convention. I was expecting a low turnout with very low sales, due to the depressed fur market, but I was pleasantly surprised it turned out to be just the opposite.

Thanks again District 12!

Those guys did an awesome job. The rondy had a very upbeat feel to it and District #12 showed everyone stellar hospitality. The Saturday night feed was awesome. I'm very proud of my association and D12.

I wasn't sure what to expect with the current state of the fur market, but we had a great time. Met a ton of people, quite a few from on trapperman. District 12 did an awesome job.

I will Echo Coon Duke's comments. District 12 did an awesome job. Great attendance and very upbeat crowd. Paul thank you for all you do. The rain was very cooperative, One of Rick's Mentors said he traded a week of good trapping weather for good weather through District's 12 first PTA Rendezvous. I hope they don't wait another 80 years. I know I won't make it.

I didn't set up and truly enjoyed the convention experience as a customer. I got to see many demos from guys I'd never seen before. Learned some new tricks and felt the facilities were fine. At the demo areas I could see and hear. I caution future workers to realize that is the most important thing for demos. Too many times I see impressive demo areas where much work and attention was given towards making them pretty and impressive but if you don't have seating and you can't see or hear it is often for naught. This was a good experience and I congratulate those who helped no matter their role.

You guys in PA are often the first convention of the year for us dealers and you've set a high bar for the rest of the conventions to match you. Thanks for everything.

If you haven't tried Night Owl's liquid mouse, you are missing out.
