A few years back there was discussion on here regarding name tags at trapper conventions so we could associate both the trapper's name and his blog name that he goes by.  I communicate with people on here and have no idea what their actual name is.  If we could use name tags, it would sure be helpful, especially for us "over the hill" folks whose memories are not that great any more.

Great idea, Mr. Roy.  I will bring some name tags for us to use.

Let me know when you're finished with the magazines and I'll trade them out for another box.  I have plenty.   Grin

Getting close to the end, Mr Wayne.  Will let you know soon.  I've sure enjoyed reading them, and have picked up some good ideas.

The 2019 ATA Spring Convention is in the books. I want to thank a few folks who help make it a success.

Demo instructors: Richard Miller, Dub Shankle, Aaron Hitchcock, Mark Conner, Charlie Bass and Cody Walker with the AGFC. Also thanks to John Burden with the AGFC for bringing out the fish tank.

Thanks to Cody, I had my first possum eggroll.

Many thanks to Bridget Doug Henderson for preparing the pork and thanks to everyone who brought the side dishes and desserts. If you left hungry, it's your fault.

The ladies who worked the kitchen...thank you.

And a very big thank you goes to Mike Gregory and the members of District 6. Outstanding job, guys!

And I want to thank everyone who attended. It's always good to see old friends and meet new friends.
