Host Hotel: Doubletree by Hilton
We, here in District 3 of the PA Trapper’s Association, want to invite you to the FTA/PTA convention in Washington, Pennsylvania, June 19-22. We are looking forward to the Fur Takers of America joining us here in Pennsylvania and with both organizations, it should be a very busy convention. Looks like there will be something going on almost round the clock during the event.
Ed Hutzel of the Hutzel Trap Co. is making a commemorative bear trap for the convention. We plan on having it at the district table, and selling raffle tickets on it throughout the convention.
Washington is located in the southwest corner of Pennsylvania and is easily accessed from Interstates 70 or 79. The fairgrounds are located close to the intersection of the two highways and can be accessed easiest from exits 40 or 41 of I-79. For anyone looking to fly into the area, the Greater Pittsburgh Airport would be the closest major airport and is approximately a forty-five minute ride from Washington.
PA District 3 and NAFA/Wild Fur Shippers Council will co-sponsor a FREE pig roast on Saturday night. It will be immediately before the auction.
Buildings close at 6:00, we'll have the meal in the same arena as auction will be held, then start the auction maybe 7:15 or 7:30.
We have a commemorative bear trap being made by the Hutzel Trap Co. We plan to sell raffle tickets for it, and to draw the winner Saturday evening at the dinner/auction.
The PTA also has it's Mountain Man Race on Saturday, in addition to the typical FTA's trap setting, barefoot bear trap, and skillet toss. It'll be a busy Saturday morning/ early afternoon.
Fur hat making on Friday, and the Dutch oven cooking on Saturday.
