This week I'd like to tell you about my first time attending the Trapper's Weekend. It was quite the fun experience and would recommend that if you haven't gone there yet, you really ought to try it. Coming to find out it was the most successful ever, as for the first time they even ran out of tickets at the gate! Aside from all the competitions and lectures on trapping I found that anyone can have fun there. In this day and age to see such a large crowd in one area, yet no problems -- merely campfires glowing at night, people having fun and socializing. There was lots of dancing Saturday night to the great tunes of the Soggy Strings Band. Well, and like a saying goes "What happens at Trapper's, stays at Trapper's." I am laughing now as I write this, as some of you may let your imagination run wild right now, yet I was a "good girl," yet had tons of fun.
Now I want to bring you up to date on the Maine Black Flies. They finished the tournament in Cooper Town, N.Y., 5:3. This is best a Maine team has ever done there in the past. We are all proud of you all!
Per a reader suggestion, I will skip the new Trivia question this week and instead we will have a mock neighborhood election for a mayor and governor of East Bethel. Sounds like fun to me and do hope you will like it also. There are no candidates so to speak. So, just call 824-3220 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your "write-in" vote. Not to worry, I will only publish the result in order that the winners will know. Hope you will have fun with this and can't hardly wait to hear.
Have a great week.
