First live flyer free if you have worked any event this year. 

If not, cost is by bird (as is cost for more than one live flyer- birds are discounted to $15 in an effort to recoup some of the cost to the HT). Take your dead ducks home w you to freeze and reuse if you like. 

Come train in a test situation!!! 

We will need everyone to pitch in and help, throwing birds/ operating equipment,  moving equipment, marshal etc. 

We will break for lunch. This is a great time to get to know other members and ask questions. Bring your lunch, water and a chair…. stay all day!

Fair warning you just might catch the field bug😉

Look forward to seeing everyone in the field
