How many would like to see a list of builders to recipient posted after the swap is completed? I think it would be fun. I already asked and got a reply that: "never has been , could be, don't see why not". I agree I don't see why not.

So I will ask again, but this time like Judge Judy: A simple YES or NO. Will it happen.

Thanks guys

James

Sure. I will plan on posting once the swap is complete. James, you should probably plan on reminding me so that I don’t forget about it. But a poor memory is the only obstacle I can see. It’s already info that is out there for prior swaps, just not summarized for easy consumption.

No rush.

Thanks. I have issues running a tape measure, let alone counting anything (that is a hint as to my bowyering skills).

I am in. I will build a glass bow. bear in mind I have only made one so far, a straight bow, but am working on a take down now that is by the book Bingham kit.

I cannot promise a great bow but I can promise my best effort.

I would prefer not ship overseas but will not rule it out.

I will take whatever, 45-50 lbs, right handed.

David, he is drawing 19" AMO and 21#. He is going to grow in strength so a bit heavier and longer could be perfect around deadline time.

The past two years I shipped late due to my workload and other comitments. It does not appear my workload will change for a couple of years, therefore I will not be participating in the bow swap this year.

--------------------
The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.

Roy, nothing is saying that I’ll draw his name. But I do make a good kid’s bow. Last one ended up at 5@20 after I piked it down. Started as my Bear Quest bow, but I musta miscalculated.

Walt, that’s unfortunate. But hopefully next year you’ll have a little more free time in your life. I love seeing the bows you make.
