This is so all Trapperman members may see and read it. Previous winners may enter again! Let's see how you've improved over the years!
This year's theme is: "My Favorite Trapper of ALL TIME!!"
FIRST, write a story that describes your "Favorite Trapper of ALL TIME!!!" and whoever that means to you. It could be a man, a woman, living or deceased, a family member or someone you've only read articles by or about. I'd like this story to be a few paragraphs minimum, if possible. I know this may be difficult for the very young contestants and we will consider this when we judge the entries at the end. Include many details to make your story interesting, who, what, where, when, why, how!? One of my favorite trappers of all time is E.N. Woodcock of Pennsylvania. I've drawn a portrait of him which I've included here.
SECOND, You must draw or paint a picture that goes with this story and illustrates it in the best possible way. It may be FULL COLOR OR BLACK & WHITE. It may be done in PENCIL, INKS, WATERCOLORS, ACRYLICS, OILS, CHALKS, CRAYONS, MARKERS, or the KITCHEN SINK!!! Put as much effort as you can into it! I want to see what talented young folks we have here on Trapperman! Then have someone take a nice brightly lit photo or scan of it and post it here with your story!!
ONCE AGAIN, THE CONTEST ENDS AT 9 PM EASTERN TIME ON CHRISTMAS EVE !! NO EXCEPTIONS. YOU FOLKS ON CENTRAL, MOUNTAIN, AND PACIFIC TIME PLEASE MAKE NOTE!
WE WILL ANNOUNCE THEM HERE ON CHRISTMAS MORNING, SOME TIME AFTER MRS. CLAUS HAS HAD HER COFFEE…..
PM ME IF YOU OR YOUR FOLKS HAVE QUESTIONS.
WELL KIDS, I SUGGEST YOU GET BUSY!!!
AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL THE TRAPPERMAN FAMILY!!!
