Yeah I had to "gently remind" the club guys flying on the farm that they need a to make sure the spent ignitors get picked up, because me picking up a handful of sharp spent wire after a launch in a pasture being grazed by cattle is unacceptable... Spent wadding I don't mind; I can reuse most of it myself ( though I prefer dog barf because it simply rots down and scatters itself as it falls) but wire, that's around a long time... Don't need cows w with wires in their tongues or mouth or hardware disease...

They bring a five gallon bucket and put it by the pad now, handy for taking wire out of the clips when hooking up...
