PTA District 5 Meeting

I attended the District 5 meeting on May21st at the Windber Sportsmen's Club. Considering that the officers had sent out over 200 post cards as a reminder of that meeting, we only had about 16 members in attendance. This is nothing new as I am an officer in the Paint Borough Sportsmen's Club with a membership of 250 and our monthly meetings are attended by 11 to 15 every month. But, the scary thing that was mentioned was there was only 1 member at the D-5 meeting under the age of 40! I was actually the second youngest one there and I'm 50. They actually made a motion to pay $10.00 to any PTA member under the age of 30 that shows up at the next meeting. So, if you're a PTA member under 30 here is your chance to make a little cash.

The horizon is your starting point.

Good luck Rick, every district needs some young help. Let us know if this works for you guys as it's a problem in all organizations. Between trapper's schools, youth events, fairs, sportsmen shows, etc, volunteers are of course always needed. But sometimes a younger, new way of thinking can help out greatly at meetings.

The Pennsylvania Trappers Association District 5 fall meeting will be held at the Patton Sportsmen's Club on October 15, 2017 at 1:00 PM.

There will be 3 demos by Hall Of Fame PA Trappers after the meeting.

I wish I still lived back there. The district 5 guys are a great group of folks and the ones that set me on my way to a lifelong passion after attending the trapper training school in the late 90's. They are a big reason I got involved in my state chapter where I'm at now. With the renewed interest in predator control and somewhat steep learning curve that ensues, the district meetings are a great way to make connections for cutting that learning curve and giving back to a great heritage.
