To you guys that like the old Black Widow bows made in the fifties and sixties before the Ken Beck era, just a bit of sad news. Charlie Peck, the shop manager for Bob, Norman, and Jack passed away last month. Charlie was a very sweet mannered gentleman who never gave himself the credit due for the awesome bows that he made during his life. I had the pleasure of knowing Charlie and asking him a million questions about his time with Widow and the brothers. If you get a chance tonight and it's safe, let an old arrow loose towards the heaven's with your old widow and say a goodbye to a wonder man, a bowyer, and a hunter. Mike Pyeatt (aka leftyfred) Charlie sitting to my right, I have the overalls.
