    I've got a question about how long the trap comples is. I was by there in May before the first grand at Sparta. It wasn't finished enough to drive on the property but we drove past it. I've heard that it's 3 miles from the first to the last field! Is that true? or has anyone ever clocked it. It didn't seem that long to me but I didn't clock it either.

    Three point two one miles according to the plans.

    Thanks, I drove all the way to the West end and back to the highway and it sure didn't seem that long to me. If I get to make it this year I'll bring my GPS and satisfy myself.
    Thanks for the reply.

    it's a long walk, Take Mr. Neil Winston's word, he won't steer you wrong. I think he will provide you with ATA Presidents Pin with his name on it if you attend and shoot.
    Hope to see you all at Grand.

    If you drive even faster, it'll "seem" shorter yet!!

    I drove it and my odometer showed 3.0 miles. Additionally, from the last trap on the west line to the first trap on the east line measured 0.5 making 2.5 miles of traps.

    I would go with Neils measurement. He has been wrong but I can't remember when.
