FTA Convention Cancelled
(Reprinted from above link)
The Fur Takers of America regrettably announces that the Rendezvous scheduled for June 18-20 in Charlestown, IN, will not be held as planned, due to health concerns related to the Corona Virus.
At this time we have commitments for Chapter 7-G to host the Rendezvous in Charleston, IN, June 17-19, 2021. And as a result, the Kansas Fur Harvesters have graciously agreed to move their intended hosting of the FTA National Rendezvous to 2022. We will have more details as they are firmed up.
All of our lives have been impacted by the Pandemic, and the FTA is working to adjust to this “new normal.” The loss of the annual Rendezvous is a blow. In particular, the trapping industry and associations are struggling to deal with lost incomes and revenues, just as most everyone is. We are exploring ways to move ahead with our Adventure Auctions in some other format to help address this loss. Details on this, and other important decisions, will be available soon.
Dave Hastings, President, Fur Takers of America
