Thanks to All

Many thanks to everyone who participated in our recent online fundraiser events. We had many generous items donated to the auction and buyers were equally generous with their bids. We also want to thank those who attended the livestream fiddle concert and made donations there. As sad as it was to have to cancel the Rendezvous this year, we are grateful that all of us can still be active and share camaraderie online. It’s hard not meeting in person, but what a wonderful age of technology we live in to be able to still join together over the internet! Thanks again to everyone who made these online events such a huge success! We look forward to the time when we can all see each other again in person, but in the meantime may we all spend time “social distancing” on the trails with our wonderful packgoats.

Podcast: M.ovi Discussion with Justin & Desarae Starck

In this podcast Justin & Desarae Starck go over the complex and controversial issue of Bighorn Sheep and mycoplasma ovipneumonia (M.ovi). This is a expression of their personal views and research and how they came to their decision regarding this complex issue. This is not an official NAPgA view, but is that of two members who extensively put time and research into the issue. Justin and Desarae want to present what they have researched, explain where you can find these documents, and allow you the opportunity to form your own conclusion.
At the end of the Podcast the Wyld Company out of Wyoming states they will be soon releasing some “packgoat gear” and have offered to donate 10% of the total sales to NAPgA! They will be sure to let all the North American Packgoat Association members know when they release the gear. We wish to thank the Wyld Company for their kind donation!
