3rd Annual Winter Workshop
« on: September 13, 2023, 01:06:46 PM »
Hi Guys & Gals,   :hello:
Our 3rd WSTA Annual Trapline Workshop is scheduled, and it will be held back where we had it last year.  :IBCOOL:
What an Awesome place to have it at.  If you weren't there last year you need to go this year and if you were there last year, come on back.
Instructors are already stepping forward to teach you.
See you there.
JC   :hello:

Hi Guys & Gals,   :hello:
So how many of you are planning to attend.  More than just Norman89 I hope.
We're putting together a great line up of Instructors and critters we will be going after including "coyotes"

We're also putting together a food menu, so we need to have some kind of an idea of just how many we can expect.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
Yep, I'll be there.

I'm looking forward to the event. I live close-by so I won't be spending the night.
I'll be coming solo on Saturday, but I'll be bringing my two kids on Sunday.

I'd also like to participate in the morning duck hunts both mornings if possible.

Hate to tell you this but it is looking more and more like the duck hunting will have to be canceled. Insurance problems.

Hello everyone, :hello:
Yep, the workshop is this coming weekend.
Steve and the crew have a lot of stuff set up for this weekend.

Don't forget to grab your rain gear, it might rain but that doesn't stop us trapper's.

Thinking of you guys at the workshop today while I am adding logs to the fire. Setting traps when the water is rising and moving fast is a pain . Rain and cold doesn't help.  I am sitting out a beaver job until the flooding in Snohomish co. recedes a bit. I hope you get some fur for your efforts and have a good get together.

That was a lot of fun. Learned some new tricks of the trade. It was nice getting to meet all of the new faces. The food was delicious. Thank you everyone that helped put the event together, the instructors, cooks, hosts, and everyone that attended.

I heard it was one of the best so far.
Glad to see Bruce was there, broken neck and all.
I'm sorry I missed it but I had to have that surgery first.  Next year for sure.

Steve wanted me to do a couple of demos.
Oh well next year for sure and I'll bring down a load of critters for everyone to skin and put up.

Let's hear from you other folks that went.  What did you like, didn't like, would like to see next year?
