Karen, since everyone in the state knows your address, would you head up the collection of these funds?  Anyone who wishes to contribute to help Connie could send their funds to you marked: Connie Watson.  If so, please let us know how best to get them to you.  Although Connie could probably use the help now, the collection can also be done at your next district meeting.

Karen, Cladine and I visited Connie Saturday...picked up some things she asked us to take of ATA...(we were in the area)
Sunday ,she asked us to come back and we got boxes of lure, magazines and misc.
In our talks she indicated a lack of available funds to have a big funeral, so cremation and a
small memorial is planned for ,I believe, Sat. !!:am at Mt  Holly (Eldorado area)
However after much discussion , we feel cash or checks will help her most at this time in lieu of flowers decide..
God Bless

A huge loss to our trapping community as well as a friend. Prayers for Connie and family.

I regret to inform the community that Wayne Watson has passed away sometime in the nigh. Iím certain he is in a better place within the kingdom of God. His hard work and motivation to make the association the best it could potentially be, will be terribly missed. He loved this association and did all he could to raise it up as well as uplift the men and women throughout the community.
Iíll miss the way he answered the phone with those haphazard one liners and his commitment to overalls.

While the special use facility at Mayflower was large enough for the number of attendees that we had last weekend, we need to also think of something that will accommodate everyone when the trapping interest picks up, i.e; higher prices.  And I'm like you, Wayne, it would be nice if the vendors could be inside, as you mentioned.  Finding something that is centrally located, which we can afford now, and that will meet our future needs is a challenge.

Here is a very rudimentary view of the new rec hall at Petit Jean State Park.  The multipurpose room will be 25' x 64' (1,600 sq. ft.).  I'm not convinced it will be big enough to allow vendors inside along with tables and chairs to feed people and hold a membership meeting.  The "kitchen" is a catering kitchen so it will be simple with no oven or stove top.  Being new, there is no telling what they will charge to use it.

I would love for the ATA to return to Petit Jean but the ATA must approach it as a business decision.  If it turns out that our needs are met, I will lobby the Arkansas State Parks for a reduced rate.

I want to urge everyone who is coming to the Fall convention to be collecting items for the auction. The item doesn't have to be trapping related. Any donation is great. Please get a business card or make a note of who donated the item. We want to give them credit for it at the auction.

Explain to them the item will be used to help offset expenses for our educational programs.

Now, get out there and sell, sell, sell.

Thank you!

The ATA will be hosting the NTA SE Regional May 8th and 9th of May 2020 at Garland County Fairgrounds in Hot Springs.

We will need "all hands on deck" starting May 5th through the 10th to set up the demo area, get vendor tables set up, work the gate, work the Ball Toss, organize and collect the fees for campers and clean up after the convention.

Contact me at if you can help and the days you can help. There are a limited number of complimentary admission wristbands. These will be for workers only. Thanks
