Let me start out by saying THANK YOU! Thank you to all of the members, board members and vendors who make these conventions such an enormous success. It was great to see old friends and meet a few new ones.
I would like to thank Royce Dake and our past President Dean Haun for all of their hard work and dedication to the MTA. Our show wouldn’t be the same without the devotion you guys had. I think I speak for everyone when I say you will be missed on the board. With that being said, we would like to welcome 3 new board members, Sean Kelly from Bozeman, Rich White from Billings, and Marty Dupertuis from Cody, WY. Thank you guys for stepping up and joining the rest of us on the board. I look forward to working with you.
Thank you to everyone that attended this year’s convention and for those that missed it, thank you for your membership and support. We had another great turnout with 100 competition entries representing 4 different states! Not to mention the $4,000 in cash prizes awarded. Thank you again to our Vice President Justin Sabol for getting that cash donated! If you haven’t already, please take the time to thank Justin too (especially if you were one of the lucky recipients of this cash money!). Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!
A quick note for next year, the show will be held at the Best Western Heritage Inn, Great Falls. The dates are April 28th – May 1st. Start making plans to attend; this will be a show you will not want to miss! Absolutely huge facility so bring those big pieces you left home last time! I am currently working on getting more seminars than Montana has ever seen before. We will have 3 different rooms for seminars besides a huge room for vendors and a grand ballroom for the mounts and banquet. So with this large room for vendors, there will be more and different companies that have never been to our show before. Our new judges for next year are: Mike Orthober for birds and fish, Lance Van Dusen for Lifesize mammals and Jody Green for gameheads. Put this on your calendars and we’ll see you next year!
The 2016 show will be in Great Falls MT at the Best Western Heritage Inn. For Reservations Call 1-406-761-1900
