Five State Convention

June 15th through June 17th, 2017

Clark County Fairgrounds

Arkadelphia, Arkansas

The OFBA will help host the 5 state convention at Arkadelphia Arkansas the next week. I need 4 more volunteers to help with the Convention. If you can be there for the whole time that would be great. If not then what ever you could help with let me know. We will have to be there on Tuesday June 13 2017 to help set up the buildings for the vendors. Wednesday the vendors will be arriving to setup their tables. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will be the convention. Sunday we will help clean up the buildings and go home. We were asked to help with this because of the good job that we did a couple of years back. Please let me know what day or days that you can help. If you know of any members that would like to help on the Spring meeting or at the 5 State Convention please let me know.


Just got back from the 2017 5 State Spring Convention in Arkadelphia Arkansas. There were lots of good demos, people and vendors. I would like to thank everyone that helped out at the Convention. Those from the OFBA were Gene and Cloyce Callaway, Tina Edgar, Noel Carruthers, Tracy Anderson, Richard and Zaek Waite, Gary Jarman, and Shannon Sheffert. We appreciate everyone who was able to help Arkansas with the convention and help get our organizations name out there. We talked to a lot of old friends and made a lot of new friends. The Arkansas Trappers had put in a lot of effort in this convention and we were glad to help out.



OFBA Spring Meeting

The Spring Meeting will be June 3 2017 at Gentry Creek Campgrounds on Lake Eufaula. I have booked camp site #25. If you are interested in camping camp sites 23, 24, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, and 32 are open now. We will supply the meat for the noon meal and we ask that you bring a covered dish. We will have a trap toss for the kids again. Bill Duke donated a dozen #1.5 traps and we bought a dozen. There will be crafts for the kids. There will be demos and several drawings for free “STUFF”. You will need to be present to win. I will need help getting this all together. Please let me know what you can volunteer to do. Elections are this fall and we need to see who wants to be placed on the Ballot.
