Good for you Whip on starting this post.

I built a hand tooled quiver and was planning on keeping it from the get go but had some comments on how much guys here liked it and I thought "Shoot Dang! I can build anothern" I was just gonna leave it at that but you got me diggin a little deeper bud. [thumbsup]

I've only been a member here for a short while and am in constant Aww of the realness of the folks here. Before I joined I kinda lost hope in my kind and here I found a whole slew of em.

I had lost the whole giving attitude and and regardless of what you give to if you aint giving to a good cause then don't expect it back whether it's here or somewhere else. You reap what you sow. with that being said I want to thank Trad Gang for helping me find myself in the giving mood again. I don't do it to be recognized and I'm sure nobody else here does either but boy it sure does feel good.

I commend those of you like Terry and Whip for having the peanuts to call it like they see it and putting this whole thing together.

Trad Gang prospers like it does because we give and love unconditionally and again it's thanks to guys like Terry and the founders and mods here that make it happen. As far as the negative post here just remember "Theres always weeds in the flower garden of life and sooner or later they get picked out and threw to the wayside" I personally have no use for weeds in my garden. [readit]

Got to go post some stuff for the auction now!

I am at work and don't have a ton of time to sift through all the different threads with "St. Judes" in the title. Can somebody send me a pm with when the deadline for posting an item to be bid on?
Thank You

I agree with you 100% Stiks... I have been on a lot of boards and a lot of lists and this one really lives up to its name. A Gang, of folks with very traditional values and leaders that have a feeling of community behind them. What is the point in having such a community if you can put it to use helping those that need it most.

Yes. Sometimes things trickle in after that, but they tend to get lost in the shuffle and never bring what they could if they were posted sooner.

Great post Whip. You got the ball rolling for sure. I'd been meaning to post my unused, new condition, old,Bear 8 arrow snap on quiver, but just never got around to it. Your post pushed me over the ledge. I'll also be trying to buy a few items. If I get outbid, I'll just make a donation at the end of the auction. Every little bit helps. God Bless St. Judes and all the kids under their care, and God Bless the men and women on this site for caring.

Whip, my friend, there will be a special place for you when we are done with you here on earth [wavey]

You got my mind headed in the right direction with your post. We are not doing the Banana bread this year due to lack of time and other things. I've looked through my stuff and nothing seemed to say"St. Jude's". After reading this thread I've come up with a couple items to donate. Thank you Brother.

Thanks again. [thumbsup]

Northwest_Hunter, If you could send the pics to most anyone they could put them on for you but they can't get onto the thread untill the bidding opens. However, if you send them to a moderator I think they can get in to post the pics for you now (early). Hope this helps.

That was funny, Biggie (to me anyway) about not being able to see the ol' BB - a pair of long shanked tweezers might hep ya a heap - [Wink]

Thanks, Whip - I love doing what I can, it is one of the biggest highlights of my year - and, BTW, that post was as good as your first one was.
I may even find a couple more items after this weekends shoot. I'm just so sorry I've had to ask for shipping on all of my items this year. My daughter's operation (that she had no money for) about wiped me out.

(This is a fine example of how long it takes me to two-finger-type up a post - [Roll Eyes] )

Whip, you're the man for getting the Gang motivated! We've still got a bunch more to list and we've got a few surprises also........Skyler thinks you should buy the bowfishing trip AND the Catfish Noodlin' trip. We can do it all in a week-end and then you would have the "Complete Southern Experience" [biglaugh]

Thanks, Whip, and well said. There's a mindset some folks have that I'll never understand -- you can give them a bag full of gold and they'll bitch about the bag. [knothead]

Now I need to go add something to the auction... [Smile]
