    Also, I wanted to make a correction on the judges qualifications, Kenny Bauman is also a World Champion Taxidermist! I will be posting information for our seminars in the weeks to come.

    Well the show is less than 2 weeks away and hopefully everyone has their competition pieces ready! This year’s convention will be the best we have had in years. The objective of the MTA in putting this convention together, was to have something for every level of taxidermist. And with a lot of hard work by the Board Members, the MTA Officers and even a few members, we feel we have accomplished our goal. We have World and National Champions judging and providing advanced level seminars, along with some of our Maryland taxidermist doing seminars on basic techniques. The suppliers room is 100% full! If you can’t find what you need from this group, it is not made!! If you miss out on this convention, it would truly be a shame.

    Visit the MTA web site to find a complete registration packet, a list of judges and the complete schedule of all the weekend’s events! If you have any questions about the convention, please feel free to contact myself, a MTA Officer or Board member.



    See you at the convention!

    This is probably a silly question, but I procrastinated and didn't sent my registration packet by the 4th... I assume I can register and pay at the door (for attending/membership, no mounts), is that right? Just wanted to make sure since this will be my first convention.

    Kinetic,

    Yes, you can still register and pay at the door. A lot of people do that - they either forget to send in the registration or are not sure if they are coming to the show untill the last minute.

    Hopefully with this being your first convention, you will enjoy it. We have some great seminars planned and a lot of great suppliers.

    Make sure you introduce yourself - looking forward to meeting you and everyone else that has never been to our show.

    Tim
