So back in October, there were 4 people on Kelly's list still waiting to receive:
Ink
John Scifres
mwosborn
talkingcabbage

Now we're down to three, I must have missed who got a bow. And more importantly who are the three AWOL bowyers?

i did not receive one yet but that's ok for my perspective.

to ease the pain i have an offer: (well actually we kind of like this pain, right?)

1. i can accept the raw materials
2. i can be the last one
3. if it becomes real problem, i can pass this year, which is really no problem to me.
4. i can accept used one. (which is more spiritual to me)

well Kelly, your choice mate...

best.

You could talk to Terry about banning anyone from TG that has not shipped the bow they promised.

Beyaz, In every bow trade I've been in(many over the years), here and on PA there is at least one person that gets a bow but never reciprocates. IMO, these trades are to share with others and to help new bow builders build confidence in themselves and their ability to to build bows for others. I don't like the idea banning folks either. If someone in other sales or trades here doesn't come through there are repercussions. I'm just saying that there should be repercussions, whatever that may be...or just live with it.

Ink, any man who signs up for a bow swap, receives his bow, then bails out and doesn't ship out a bow, should be banned. Their name should be posted here also so we know who not to trust in the future.

Roy I would agree with you completely. It is one thing to have stuff come up and communicate that with the group, it is completely something else to bail without any communication and explanation as to what is going on.

I certainly do not "need" a bow. But it would have been nice to hear from my guy and let me know why he couldn't come through.

A lot can be forgiven with a little communication.

Good job, Kelly. This has been tough on you as well as the participants who got skunked.

Hey Mitch, AKA mwosborn... Guess What you are gonna get? [Smile] How does a trilam from Pennsylvania sound? I got your specs, but do you shoot split or three under?

Kelly, let it all hang out here. Post the names of those who screwed the guys in this swap. Why not I say. They had the guts to bail out after they got a their free bow, they should have the guts to take the shame...

Just a simple post of those who have not shipped would suffice.

Roy, a trilam from Pennsylvania would be wonderful! [Smile] It certainly would find a special place in my bow rack and would see some field time after whitetails. I very much appreciate you stepping up. Could I help out with materials and/or shipping? I do shoot 3 under.

Another example of the generosity of the people on this site - thank you. [Not Worthy]

Roy - I will trust your judgement on the color. I guess if pink was good enough for Kenny it's good enough for me. [Big Grin]

Stay sharp, Kenny.
