OHIO TAXIDERMIST Vol. 9 Issue 2
Hello OTA Members,
This year has been a challenging one for the OTA. Changes within with people stepping down and the passing of one of our own. Other circum-stances made it necessary to move the show ear-lier this year. It has put a BIG crunch on the board but it should be a great challenge. We are now one of the first shows of the year.
Once again we have put together a GREAT lineup of judges and seminars for you, making this a show you cannot miss.
Another addition is the Art & Photography portion of the competition. Make sure and check that out.
The President’s Challenge this year is “Out of the Box”. What does that mean? You will just have to figure it out.
I can say for sure that we really need YOU to come and be part of this event. This Association cannot continue with out the continued support of our members.
See You there
