I gotta disagree with you Ink.

Have any of the late shippers even tried to communicate what's going on at this point?

well, the point is communication... for me for example, i have tried to explain why i make the shipping late (this year was the first as far as i remember).

on the other hand, my first attend to this event, i had to wait for a year for my bow (well, there was some problems with various things which can happen) but for me that was not a bad thing. i trust this site, trust this the owners, and even more to people here. i feel like this community is kind of mixture of good heart people.

this is not particulary for you Roy. please do not get me wrong on this.

i just poured how i feel about being here...

best.

Ink, I did not post that towards you, sorry. Was just disgusted with the lack of communications here from those who have not shipped.

I have serious doubts that those who have not shipped yet, " 2 months late ", will never ship. The very least they could do would be update their progress thus far, as you have done!

But nothing from anyone as far as updates ??????????????

Kelly, list those guys out here who have not shipped.

I do the swap to give, not receive.

Those without a dog in the fight ought to keep their opinions to themselves lest they be thought an antagonist.

That is great John. But it is called a "bow swap" not a "bow give". I didn't get into the swap because I needed a bow. I got in for the fun of building a bow for someone else and getting to see the workmanship and style of a fellow bowyer. It is a learning process for me. I also got in understanding that I may not get a bow in the end, that is ok and I accepted that when I signed up.

I believe all the comments so far are just asking for a little communication. I don't think that is too much to ask.

As to the opinions..... this is a forum after all and most of the posts on this site deal with opinions. We are all members of the same group and are all free to give our opinion in a respectful way. Makes no difference what kind of dog you have. [Wink]

Enjoy the hunt! - Mitch

I'm with Mitch.

I didn't do the build and pay almost 300 buck to ship a bow to Europe (before the established bowyers deadline) to not receive anything.. the swap isn't a charity..
I'm really kinda disappointed that Kelly hasn't been more proactive and stay on top of things and let people know what's going on.

Cody if I was in your shoes, I'd be highly pissed off too. I've already been labeled an antagonist here, so I'll just keep my thoughts to myself.
