Convention Highlights

Oregon California Trails Association 201 Annual Convention at Fort Hall, Idaho

Dates:  August 1 - 5, 2016.

The comments are pouring in, and there seems to be unanimity in the thought that the Fort Hall convention will go down as a great success. Much praise must be passed along to Idaho chapter president Jerry Eichhorst, convention chairman John Briggs, and their rather large team of volunteers. This team included many OCTA members from chapters as far away as Kansas, so kudos to all who pitched in to help build great memories for over 300 people from 26 states.  

Please see our Facebook page for some highlights from the convention, and be sure to check the next issue of News From the Plains for a complete recap. It does appear OCTA's convention ended just in time, however, as a lightning strike on Saturday torched close to 10,000 acres at Fort Hall.
