This NTA southeastern convention is hosted by the Tennessee Free Trappers Association. Here, you will find an abundance of trapping supplies, trapping demos from accomplished southern trappers and other trappers abroad, tail gater sales and everything else that you would see and get at the Annual NTA Convention but much closer to home.

This will take the help of the TN Free Trappers Assoc members to make things work smooth. Believe me, it takes a pretty good amount of people to see that everything gets done. Some of you called me or emailed me last year. Please contact me again if you can still help out this year. If you will be attending this event, please consider helping out. You donít have to be working all day, not unless you want to. There just needs to be plenty of volunteers on the list attending the convention to be available to call upon for help. Several hours of your time will be much appreciated. I have started making a list of people who would like to help out at this event. Iím trying to get a list of volunteers who can commit to work at the convention and how much time they can put in (2 hrs, 4 hrs, 1/2 day, all day, etc.) I know itís hard to commit to something so far in advance. But it is important to know early on who many people are ďWILLINGĒ to be there and help out. In order to make plans for such a large event, we need to know ASAP! Please call if you would like to be added to the list. You will be contacted and directed to where you will be needed. You can call or email me and I will add you to the list.
