PTA Official Annoucement

On behalf of the Pennsylvania Taxidermist Association Inc. the board of directors have decided to withdraw our support for the Annual Taxidermy Competition which was scheduled to be held at the upcoming Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pa.. This difficult decision was made as a result of a position taken by show promoters to exclude certain types of firearms and ammunition along with other vendor restrictions we feel are not acceptable and not in the best interests of taxidermy and sportsmen.



We are asking our membership for support on this decision. We plan to review this issue at our upcoming State Taxidermy and Wildlife Art Championships and Trade show being held at the Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, Pa. March 6-9, 2013. Should you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact our board members or myself. Also, If you would like to support a member of our Association donít hesitate to go to our website http://www.taxidermypa.com/ and like our facebook page Pa. Taxidermy Association.



Currently our board and I are working diligently to prepare for a great taxidermy show at Seven Springs in March. Hope to see you there in the mountains!



Sincerely,



Dave Houser

President

Let me be the first to thank you for standing with us in this conflict to keep our Freedom's secure. Please keep us informed on the final details for your event. I will be there. I know this has been a tough decision for all and I promise it will not go unnoticed.

Re: PTA Official Annoucement

Thanks Brian for making it official. I know this has been an ongoing decision since this issue came up. I hope we can get some support from taxidermists and sportsman alike to help promote taxidermy in our state and abroad and ease the loss this situation has caused to the PTA and more importantly its members. I know we have a truck load of "Harrisburg 2013" trophies if anyone wants to buy some. lol

It looks unlikely that there will be a competition in Harrisburg's place at this time. There may be something later, after much expected discussion at the membership meeting at the State Competition at Seven Springs the week of March 6th.

Also 2 million bullets / Camp Compass has pulled out and they will take a huge financial hit. Please if you can show your support financially and also spread the word to those that may not be aware of their organization.

thanks,
Mike

Re: PTA Official Annoucement

My PTA renewal form has layed on my table for 2 weeks now while I decided if I was going to fill it out or not. It will now be in the mail tomorrow.

It's not the size of the shop, it's the quality of the work!

Re: PTA Official Annoucement

hey guys,

from what i remember the public is allowed in and vote on the mounts for the peoples choice award, i think we should spread the word and get a lot of folks to attend the show in march.

i am having hip replacement surgery and wont be able to go but we need to support those that support us.

thank you to all PTA members.
