    And thanks to all the volunteers that worked all day in the rain to get the first 20 trap houses in. And they look great I might add. The rest should be in tomorrow. And it will be done in the rain again.

    Oh and by the way. I saw the new program and it is beautiful. Thanks to Connie Lee Reimer for doing a great job on that. John Atkielski always does a great job.

    Connie Lee did do a great job getting ads. But don't forget John Atkielski who for years has done the layout of the program. If it is written, that is John's work. Thanks to him for an outstanding job.

    Looks great guys. Wisconsin shooters owe thanks to you that have stuck with the project and are making it happen. We'll see you in July. It'll be my first ever visit to the Wisconsin state shoot.

    Thanks to all the volunteers that have work under difficult situation and addverse weather conditions to make it happen.

    Now what I'm going to suggest will with out a doubt ruffle some people feathers, but I think the effort put forth by these "volunteers" they should each receive a "Commemorative Buckle" for service rendered.

    Let me get a cigar ready for the flaming thats coming.

    We work to see the project completed and shooting there will be reward enough.

    Thanks for the thought.

    At approx. 2:50 pm today the last house was set. I will be putting up some pictures as soon as I thaw out. They will be on the blog @ Witrapshooters.com. Another all day rain. Everyone was soaked to the bone. We had a little bubbly to celebrate the last house. It looks amazing. Weather permiting we may get some arial photo's tomorrow. And again thanks to all the volunteers that made this happen. 30 traps in about two and three quarters days. Two of which it rained hard.

    I have already thanked John Atkielski personally for all the work he has done on the program, as I explained to many many people, John did the guts...all the program stuff, and I did the fluff, getting the advertising and doing the layout stuff.

    Through this whole process, no one single person need be singled out as it truly is a TEAM effort. Many aspects of the project could not be completed without the contributions of other members of the team and vice versa.

    I have never had the pleasure of working with a higher caliber group of people than these folks. More and more people are signing on and showing up for work in the trenches. People are stepping up and out from all over!

    Tough job? You Bet....but I'll bet you there is not one person in the bunch that wouldn't say it is a rich, rewarding and life changing experience.

    Thanks for your kind words, all the extreme effort and by all means try to get here for our state shoot.

    Connie Lee

    Illusion. Thanks for the thought. But I would rather have the cost of any buckles put into the homegrounds. So if you or anyone else would like to do somthing for the volunteers please make a donation to our cause. Also now that all the non belivers see that this is going to happen and were holding back on their donations until they saw some progress now is the time. They can be sent to Arlene Otto. Her address is: Arlene Otto
    1015 Bayview Ct.
    Mukwonago, Wi, 53149

    Again Illusion thanks for the thought. I not going to flame you.
