The TTAI Board would like to send out a HUGE thank you to all who attended this years convention. As you all know the show was a big success with attendance and competition mount numbers up considerably from years past. Our goal has always been and will remain to be education for the members! Ribbons and awards are fun but the most important thing is, we want every single person who attends our convention to return home a better taxidermist than they came. Good luck to everyone in 2017, keep studying reference and working on improving your work. I believe anyone can reach the masters division in taxidermy, work hard don't give up on your dreams and it will happen! We will announce the dates for the spring mini-seminar this fall, hope to see everyone there!
