How has competition motivated you? Who or what pushes you to get better?
I encourage you to follow your dreams and get started on that competition piece. Yes, the one you dream about winning the top honors with. Dig that hide out, dust the form off and get ready for March 19 – 22, 2015. Competition helps us to get and stay motivated. It helps us generate new energy when we are stagnated.
The Board members and I have been working hard getting everything ready to provide our attendees the best competition as we can. Every level of taxidermist will be able to attend and learn something. Even just hanging out in the halls talking with a fellow taxidermist will provide a chance to pick up ideas and tips for improving your work. Also don't forget to take advantage of the savings by placing early orders from your favorite vendor.
Please feel free to contact myself or anyone of our Board Members if you have any questions or concerns.
Hope to see you there!
I hope this letter finds everyone with a heavy work load and freezers full. Now that the rush of fall is over, it’s time to start those competition pieces!
This year’s convention will again be held in Bozeman at the Best Western Gran Tree Inn. With over $1,000 in cash prizes, and more in the works, you’ll want to be sure not to miss this show!
A very special thank you goes out to this entire board. These shows are a success because of the extraordinary work that all of you put in. The board has worked exceptionally hard to make this show our best yet. We have 6 seminars lined up I think everyone will want to attend. Also, we have just finished up a 5 prize raffle that made us over $3,500! With the proceeds from this raffle and the sale of our old trailer, we were able to purchase a brand new 2015 enclosed trailer. I would like to thank everyone that had a part in selling tickets, it is greatly appreciated!
We also have another great lineup of vendors this year. A few of the vendors may even have a small seminar type presentation in their booths. So be sure to stop in and check it out!
Setup will be on Thursday the 19th, and as always volunteer help is needed and greatly appreciated. Don’t forget to invite friends and family to our open to the public hours on Saturday and again on Sunday. Just a reminder, any of the public who brings a non perishable food item for our food drive will get money off their admission.
Please don’t hesitate to call me with any questions.
See you in Bozeman!
The 2015 show will be in Bozeman Mt at the Best Western Grann Tree Inn on March 19th-22nd. Reservations Call 1-406-587-5261
