Outdoors: Trap mechanics key to success of shoot

Trap mechanics key to success of shoot


Fritzges, who has been tournament director since 1997, could not have summed up better what Grecsak and his two-man team means to the success of the shoots held in Elysburg each year, "If the traps don't work, we don't have a shoot."

After the final event in September, Grecsak and his staff will take out all of the targets and electronic equipment, vacuum every trap, attempting to pick up all the dust and any loose particles before covering each housing with plastic until needed next season.

"There are two of us maintaining the traps and it does take time but our work shows up throughout the shoot because we rarely have a major breakdown," Grecsak said.

"If I'm sitting down and watching the shoot and Chuck walks by smiling it means he's happy and everything is going well."
