Virginia Trappers convention

Virginia Trappers convention - 10/02/20 11:41 AM

The Virginia Trappers Association will hold their annual convention in the mountains of Southwestern Virginia in the scenic small town of Bland. Y'all come for a time of fun and camaraderie October 16/17. This convention is one of my very favorites to attend each year. We always have a great time there. It's the home of the Virginia District 1 fall convention, where it's held each year. http://virginiatrappers.com/state%20convention.html

Typically the vendors are Murrays, Epler, Seven Oaks, and others that I can't recall offhand. There will be just about anything you'll need there.

Friday night is pot-luck night, and you can't beat the food. I'll have a smoked salmon cheese ball on the table.
It's located just off of I-77 at exit 52.

I am planning to be there with my usual NCTA table with some raffle tickets and NCTA logo merchandise. Might run off a knife or two on card decks as well and will have some wall hanger pelts to donate to the auction. Might have a chunk of summer sausage too.

Will have plenty of tickets for the 100 item NCNWTF raffle for sale for $10 each. A chance at a minimum of 100 items for .10 per item. Drawings start Dec. 1 and continue the entire month. This raffle benefits the NWTF and the NC trappers Association.

It looks like the weather is going to be crisp fall-like. I think I'll bring my heater for the mornings.

Thank you Virginia trappers for another great well-run convention. This kind of success just doesn't happen, it is the result of a lot of hard work by a fine bunch of folks. You can't beat their hospitality and generosity. The food at the Friday feed was spectacular! I was surprised at the large turn-out under the conditions we're living with now. It was a very good crowd. I'm looking forward to next year's event.

Thanks again!
