Annual Trapping Seminar/Picnic


The first combined Trapping Seminar and Annual Picnic was held on Saturday, August 27 at the facilities of Greg Hake at his home in Dahlonega, Georgia. About 80 people attended.

This from Buster Brown:

Thanks one and all for one of GFA's best event ever. A BIG thanks to Gregg Hake and family for hosting us today ... a beautiful place with folks who went out of their way to make us feel at home.

Much appreciation to Thom & Lara Bardugon, Joel Volpi, John Rudy and Larry Mullis for giving us quality instruction and sharing their expertise. Joey Seabolt was kind enough to give up his time to talk about "trapping solo" since we were running behind today, so we'll ask our president to share with us next time. Kudos to Jordan Turner too. Flying that gyr/merlin in the heat wasn't easy, but Jordan was willing to do it for us today ... much appreciated.

Thanks to Sandy Brown we were able to sign up some new folks (and some renewals) and she gave everyone a chance to get a shirt, an apprentice manual or a mug, any time & all day. We sold a LOT of GFA stuff because of Sandy's efforts.

And, as usual, Bob Gordon really put the hammer down for the raffle. Many of you good people were kind enough to donate some quality stuff and Bob puts the squeeze on everyone to join in the fun. GFA raffles are always successful thanks to one Bob Gordon.


Our Host, Greg Hake
