Not that I'm aware of. That's another thing that is slipping away. I don't have the time to organize the event myself. In the past folks stepped up and volunteered to spearhead the cookout.


And that is lots of work! I helped with the T'man feed at the NTA in Escanaba and I do not remember the total number but north of 200 ate. Lots of cooking and the folks who ram rodded that one were from the lower peninsula. They had to rent a cooker for the pig. I think that was the last one at an NTA. No body has stepped up to take the bull by the horns since.

Well said Dahlgren. The BEST part of the conventions is the fellowship. Doesn't mean I can always stay til the end, but I wish I could. And, like Mr. Dobbins said, we're loosing ground on the events that others have work hard to get started. This issue comes up at our state association meetings, and we do our best to bring it to the members' attention. The same volunteers are always the ones doing the work, and when they are no longer able to dedicate that time and energy, there is little interest by members to step up and lend a hand. I hear this regardless of which state convention I attend.

We (the trapping community) really NEED some of these younger trappers to step up and get involved in keeping our traditions alive. No experience required. Just ask what you can do to help. The rewards far outweigh any sacrifice in my experience. I can assure you that, if we don't value our way of life, nobody else will.

To those out-of-state guys (women included) who are coming to help us MO folks out with the NTA....THANK YOU! My hat is off to you. You guys ROCK!

Does anyone know if there are shower houses? I looked on the fairgrounds map, but didn't see one. I have a portable shower house I can use with a 5 gallon bucket and a bilge pump, but wasn't gonna bring it if I didn't have to.

I was told there are showers there.

I'll be there Monday. Have not seen the grounds yet, but am told they are very nice and new. Monday, I will attempt to get some info on here for those with questions.

Will roll in sometime Monday evening. My sidekick is the NTA director and his meetings start Tuesday. I will probably scout around the area Tuesday then set our booth up sometime Wednesday and scout out the fairgrounds.

And for those coming in by Thursday, Groenewold is having a Trapper Appreciation Party Thur. Hi evening from 6:00 until 8:00 at the Bootdaddy Saloon on the fairgrounds. You just need to call 915-938-2381 to reserve a spot.

Ha ha Paul! I'll see you there for sure, but hope their ain't no overzealous game wardens there to make us put the wine away! You know he went around after the fact and appoligized to everyone but me....and maybe you! Plan on getting there Wed afternoon, and I will have to leave Sat evening, as I have responsibilities for Sunday. See you all in Missery!

I don't recall ever seeing the man Lee. You're just a magnet for trouble - lol.

I'm packed up and ready to hit the road tomorrow morning. I'll be taking my time, and enjoying the ride - once I get past Raleigh.

I'm packed up and ready to head out in the morning. The yota is squatin' a bit.

Sure hope all you southern trappers can make it to see us. Ain't often we get a National down our way. We need to make a good showing.

You northern trappers will appreciate that the indoors has AC, as I'm sure we all will. I just keep thinking about MI last year. I was wearing a jacket, and shivering. You guys were walking around in shorts! crazy I hope there's less of a climate shock for you. We plan on putting on a good show...and doing it again in the future.

For those of you traveling, please be advised, possums aka "grinners" are not in-season, within the borders of MO. Furthermore, the fur is not prime. Please do not stop along our highways and attempt to collect a tourist pelt. It's unsafe and illegal. MO is a reciprocal state. Therefore, you are welcome to come, during the MO Trapping Season and catch all you can. We dare you!

There’s a few here getting stuff together in Springfield. It’s currently pouring down rain. Started soon as I started to set the tent up. Seems to happen to me a lot.

The tailgate section is an asphalt parking lot. May wanna bring some shade with you. Parking lots can get a little warm if the sun starts shining.

Big place, plenty of camping spots.

Dillers can still be picked up they got no fur.


�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill
