Winter Rendezvous
« on: February 29, 2024, 09:44:32 AM »
Is there going to be a Winter Rendezvous this year?

I feel like I saw March 9th posted somewhere, but the WSTA website doesn't have anything listed, and neither does the Thurston County Fairgrounds.

Ok great. The magazine was where I heard about it, but not finding anything on the fairgrounds website or the association website had me concerned it was cancelled.

Won't make it.  We will be running a fundraiser that day.  :bash:
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

this where the problem lays for both the spring fur sale and the summer rendezvous need to be broadcasted to every trapper out there and public

The main thing is the auction. A place for trappers to sell their furs locally or if you are not satisfied we have a pickup for the Intermountain Fur Harvesters sale the next week. I think there should be at least 4 buyers.
We have a couple demos in the morning beaver put up and Bobcat put up.

Can we get a bit more information on the Rendezvous other than the general schedule?  Which fur buyers will be there, any specific fur they looking for, will carcass/green be accepted?  Displays/demos?  Need for food brought? 

This would be good for those who have not been there before, or new members etc on what to expect.

Just heard from Frank the Tank that a buyer from Touttle will be there looking to buy raw skulls. This is exactly what we need over there on the coast. Another outlet for our products. Letís clean out our freezers and support this guy. I know I can come up with a few.
On a related note: I will be at the sale. I will be looking to buy suitcase beaver traps. Both Koro and Hancock brands.

I don't think there are buyers that stated they were buying green or carcass fur. We can't bring raw skulls or carcasses into the building but we do have the poultry barn next door where we have done demos rented so  we may be able to work something out if need be. WE have never auctioned skulls before but we'll see what happens. Of course private treaty sales outside the building are fine.
Buyers are Doug Stanley, Amanda Platoni, a buyer from Oregon whose name escapes me and I think Centralia Hide and Fur. Not sure what their wants are.
I will be buying Spotted Skunks but outside, don't bring them inside.
Tom Parker is doing a beaver put up demo and Bill Largen is doing a bobcat put up demo. We were going to do a kind of a workshop type thing about pulling a tooth on a bobcat but I think we may put that on hold until we know more what the law will be. We still may solicite advice on tooth pulling.
Food, I think we have that covered sandwiches, potato/macaroni salad, chips and drinks. Coffee in the morning as soon as it cooks up.
