Thank you Tony, I really appreciate you doing this for me.

Here's a photo of Bob Lee holding "The Tradition Lives On" signature bow, along and his lovely wife. Bob's signature as well.

Here's just a few of Mr. Lee's accomplishments.

1951 Bob Lee forms Wing Archery Company in Houston, Texas, producing handcrafted, custom traditional archery equipment.

1959 Bob assists in forming the Pope & Young Club, an organization dedicated to developing records for quality game taken with a bow and arrow -- the archery counterpart of the Boone & Crockett records club

1968 Bob is instrumental in forming the national Archery Manufacturers Organization (AMO), an association that develops industry trade standards for measuring bow weight, draw lengths, etc.

2007 Bob Lee is inducted into the National Bowhunters Hall of Fame at a dedication ceremony in Las Vegas before a standing ovation

Here's another little tidbit about Dick Mauch, an earlier signee on the signature bow.
Terry Harris

When asked, what do you think is most important to keep our sport of traditional archery alive for it’s future. His answer was, Mentoring and Youth programs such as Ted Nugent's camp for kids. State bowhunting organizations with youth programs including youth in their banquets & awards.

Thanks again Tony.

The photo below Bob Lee is of course, Steve Turay with Northern Mist Longbows, along with their signatures.

Here's a little info on Steve.

When asked what or who inspired him to get into Traditional Archery, Steve replied.

" I don't think anyone really inspired me to shoot Longbows and Recurves. As a child I made primitive bows and arrows out of what ever was available. When I was about 7 years old, my dad gave me a 35lb Lemonwood longbow that he had as a child. In 1988, I made my first laminated longbow and built them as a hobby until 1996 when I turned my bow making into a full time venture and continue today to build Northern Mist Longbows."

I'll put some info about Neil Byce in another post here a little later.

Here's some info on Neil Byce.

When asked: What part of the country are you from and what was your earliest memory introducing you to traditional archery.

Neil's answer was: I was born in Flint, Michigan and moved to Grayling, Michigan at the age of 7. Right after moving to Grayling, my second grade class had Archery for required gym class. The whole class shot archery every day for a couple weeks and the Gym teacher kept a tally on the daily scores. I know who took first but I won’t say, but what a blast as a kid.

Terry,

Thanks for your diligence in preserving a piece of history that we can all identify with. I know you have spent countless hours and dollars to make this happen.

Personally, I appreciate your efforts! It is time and money well spent brother.

Tony
