Ontonagon, Gogebic, Iron

District two hosted the 2005 and 2006 conventions, which were both held at the Gogebic County Fairgrounds in Ironwood Michigan. If you attended either of these conventions, you know that District Two knows how to put on a good show. They had many excellent dealers displaying their wares, the demos were top-notch and the food vendor provided good food at reasonable prices. They are now sending an energetic crew down to Escanaba to help out at the regional conventions, which are now being held exclusively in Escanaba, Michigan.

District 2 does need more trappers to attend their meetings and to step up and get involved. As you can see they also need some new officers to step up. They currently have no Vice President and Jeff Alberts is handling both the Secretary and Treasurer duties. If you live and trap in Ontonagon, Gogebic, or Iron Counties please join Ryan Koivu and Jeff Alberts in getting this District fired up! Join up, attend all meetings and volunteer to take one of the vacant officer positions. Ryan and Jeff can’t do it all alone!
