MICHIGAN TAXIDERMIST ASSOCIATION

WORDS FROM OUR PRESIDENT – JOHN CRABB
        Hey Everyone! It’s finally summer and the MTA picnic is right around the corner on August 4th. Join us at Jean Roll’s place to enjoy some time with the MTA family. We’ll have a cookout, fishing, swimming, socializing, auction, 50/50 drawing and don’t forget the Mini Comp! If you’re interested, camping is available for the weekend. A campfire is a great place to sit around with marshmallows or guitars…so bring those too! We are always looking for auction items to be donated and remember these do not have to be taxidermy related items. I hope you’re able to make it to the picnic, we’ll see you all there!!
        Our fall meeting will be September 23rd at the American Legion in Midland. Come early and make it a weekend…. Midland has a lot to offer and the Fairgrounds will be holding their large Antique Market, Car show and swap meet that weekend which is a lot of fun too! The Baymont Inn (2200 West Wackerly, Midland, MI 48640 989-631-0070) offers a nice place to stay close to all that is going on. We are working on arrangements for rooms to be reserved for the MTA.
        **As a reminder, it is never too early to start planning and getting ready for the 2019 Convention and Competition. We have confirmed our Masters/Professional judges for next year and more info will be coming soon!!
