    Unfortunately our broken trap at NVGC in King George VA has not been repaired yet and the chances of getting it fixed and back in time for this shoot are slim to none. ATA and VTA have been informed. If you have a friend who was planning to come and shoot with us next Saturday please let them know.

    Hey Chip,

    You guys still having trouble with that trap? I don't know how many times I had to put parts on that thing. It always broke down when we were shooting registered.

    Hey Chip,

    Jon and I put several arms on it. I think they finally figured out it was the clutch after I moved away. We also had to keep replacing the piece that held the magnet down, it would always break and the machine would start cycling constantly. We also had to replace that half moon piece that the trap rotates on which allows the platform to go up so the bird is laid on it instead of dropped. I think most of this stuff happened before you start shooting a lot there.
