    Anyone know what's going on at the 2012 Illinois Convention, like what seminars their having etc. The website only has the dates and who's judging what, but no other info.

    Chewy, unless something has changed, if you weren't a member last year you won't get a packet in the mail, nor do they do much advertising. Your best bet is to go to their site and find someone to call. I don't know who their board members are anymore but Sarah DeJournett will probably be the one most likely to see this post on here, so I would give her a call.

    I contacted Eric yesterday and he is wrapping up the details now. Packets will be mailed out shortly, possibly by the end of the week. But like antlerman said if your not a member you better get ahold of them. Otherwise they dont know you exist. shammy

    I am putting postage on the packets this weekend! As far as seminars go Friday at 1 we will have four ITA members mounting four seperate deer. This has always been a great one to watch. Saturday at 9 will be Shawn Dawson and he will be discussing how to make your business grow and profit ect. Saturday at 1 will be Terry Weick showing some molding and casting techniques. Sunday at 9 will be Mike Pendzimas bird seminar and Sunday at 1 will be Mark Gonnering showing his techniques for setting antlers, eyes septum and ear butts. Sometimes our seminars change so I will try and update this if they do. Please let me knwo if you wold like more info.
