    Our trap club has five fields (5)to utilize--however we opened up only one field and as a consequence had to wait up to an hour to shoot between rounds. Very frustrating should you need practice.Shoot caps and all of the "mics" need to be moved back--Open early,---close early etc.Any input is appreciated.

    Dam, an hour? At our club we have 8 traps, if we get more than 10 guys shooting at a trap, we open another trap. Leagues are a different story. Of course there is the mandatory 10 minute chat/get-more-shells time between rounds.

    Hawk,

    I agree, another field(s) should be opened! That is a no brainer!

    One of our clubs only has two traps since 9/11 and the airport moving the fence line which took two of our houses. We operate by the method of...hey...anyone want to shoot a round? Drop in a coin and go shoot.

    The other local club has 4 or 5 houses.

    When I shoot in Redding, they have all of the traps open and you just pick which one you want to shoot at, drop your token in the bucket and go shoot. If it needs targets, summon over the trap help and it will be loaded.

    With a minimum of planning you can shoot 5/hour, less planning 4 /hour,
    fail to plan....plan to fail. What I have seen is some folks who run the show refuse to give up some power and delegate to others for help. ie collect money, squad shooters, score, fill machines, all alone.....delegate responsibility to others and it'll flow.....
