ESCANABA – The National Trappers Association Convention will return to Escanaba in 2018.
Roy Dahlgren with the U.P. Trappers Association says Escanaba beat out Georgia, North Carolina and Missouri during a presentation in Kalamazoo last week. He said they were very impressed with the convention that was held here in 2014.
“They were very pleased with happened here in town. There are seven members on the board that vote. Every one of them mentioned that when they were here, whether it was a gas station or restaurant, any where they went, there were welcome trappers sign out. They said there was never a town that they felt more welcomed,” Dahlgren said.
The convention will be held July 26-28, 2018. Dahlgren is already making plans for the event. He is looking for groups or organizations that would be interested in volunteering to help put on the convention.
