    I would like to thank the UTA for attending the NCTA show this past weekend. We had one of our best shows ever and the UTA had part in that. They had a meet & great for us all on Thursday night that was first class. We were all able to eat some good food and fellowship with one another. It was fun watching Brenda Duvall embarrass D.price until his ears turned red. I want to thank her for judging and putting on a great seminar, also for helping me with a problem we had at the banquet. And thanks for bringing Jim Kimball along with you, he was a great bird judge and also put on a seminar. Thanks to Craig Lewis for a great seminar and for buying a fishing trip at the auction, only to give it back to be awarded to the best youth winner. Now that is a class act and a man with a big heart. Gail Tout worked the UTA booth like a champ and it was a pleasure meeting her. Dave Peters was there with the Wildlife Gallery. And Billy Robertson, SE Director made his presence as our auctioneer. Help make this years auction one of the best ever. I think it was Billy's third year in a row coming down from WV. If any state association gets the chance to have the UTA attend there show, jump on it, you want be sorry.

    NCTA President,

  3. Vince and everyone else at NCTA I have always said from my first trip there ... Within being there 20 minutes I was made to feel as though I had been there for 20 years. What a great bunch of folks to visit with. NCTA is a fantastic convention to attend and you will meet some of the finest people and make some great friends while you are there.

    I was glad to see NCTA have such a BIG turnout. Just goes to show if ya work hard the show will always succeed. Everyone in North Carolina should be proud of their association. Your board and officers do a solid job planning and operating your show. I plan to be there for many years to come.

    We have been trying to get a representative from the UTA to come to our show for 3 or 4 years without any success. We have offered a space in our vendors for them and still come up empty! Who do you call that will say "yes"!

    Thank you NCTA for your hospitality! It was a pleasure to attend your successful show. You all certainly made us feel welcome. We appreciated the opportunity to talk with you all about the UTA.

    Tim Martin, I am sorry that we have missed your show. Your UTA Regional Rep is Tony Alfarro. Perhaps you can make arrangements for next year. Our Reps try to attend at least 2 shows in their regions each year. We pay our own way, so it isn't possible to attend them all. I hope you did receive the Artisan Award for your show. Give me a call 520-790-1054
