MBA President's Report Winter 2023

MBA Member,

Apologies for our newsletter being long overdue! We hope these updates find you well. As you know, the MBA is an all, volunteer organization. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our previous editor Randy Gaetano for his work. Randy has needed to move on due to personal and professional obligations. I would like to welcome our new volunteer editor: Alex Maheux! Get to know him by reading his article in this newsletter. Thanks again, Alex, for your willingness to help!

Spring Sportsman’s Shows are fast approaching! The MBA will have booths at both of the upcoming Sportsman’s Shows in Orono and Augusta this Spring! Orono’s show is 3/10-3/12 and Augusta’s show is 3/31- 4/2. We always look forward to this opportunity to meet people, talk bowhunting, and gain new members! Please stop by our booth and say hello! We are also always interested to hear how the MBA can support its members.

The MBA is looking for more volunteers. We are looking for a person who could help out with some legislative work in Augusta on occasion. If you would like to volunteer, or have any questions, please contact me at 207-356-6523.

Our annual banquet is our biggest fundraiser for the year. We donate 25% of all proceeds to support outdoor education in the state of Maine. Our annual banquet will be at Jeff’s Catering in Brewer on April 22, 2023 at 5:00 pm. Tickets are $30 per person or $55 for a couple. Please go to our Facebook page for more information or to buy tickets, we hope to see you there!

The printed version of the newsletter will be hitting your mailbox soon.

Thank you for supporting MBA,
Scott Abbott, President
