I'd like to thank the membership and board for the support as your new President. I'd also like to thank John and Kathy Proctor, and previous board members for their hard work over the last year. We have a lot of work ahead of us as a board, and I see some really exciting things coming in the near future. Stay tuned! Feel free to contact me through messenger, email, or phone with any ideas or concerns.

The meeting on March 14th was a huge sucess! It was nice getting to see everyone again! I think everthing from the venue, to the seminars and all the offerings from the auctions were well received. Contact info has been updated with your new Officers and Board. The Auctions brought in over $2000!!! Way to support the MTA! We had a great turn out for the mini competition too. Jayson Clark won the championship round with his awesome bobcat mount! Congrats Jay! We will be posting photos and video soon!

Thank you all!
