Raffle for Terry


Raffle tickets will be on sale from September 1 through October 31 for $25 per ticket.  To purchase tickets or to have some to sell please email me at cr500_95@yahoo.com.  I can take payment for tickets by cash, check or Pay Pal, I’ll cover the Pay Pal charges.  The drawing for prizes will be November 12 and all prizes will be shipped to the winners via USPS on November 15.  The prizes will be drawn from the first prize down to the last prize.  This will give every ticket purchaser the opportunity to win the top prizes.

I hope everyone will support this project as all proceeds will be given to Terry’s family.  It is very easy to say you are a “Friend of Terry” but now is the time to put your money where fingers are so to speak.

    Dano,
     
    I'm hoping to match that rod with something in the Stardic 2000 range if possiable.  Tha tshould allow for casting spoons and plugs at the lake and fishing the tribs too.

    Dave-
     
    I ordered the reel this afternoon- as I told you, it will get attached to next week's Loomis/Shimano order. As far as payment goes, no hurry. I'll float it until you guys figure out what's what.
     
    As for the rod I am building, I have the grip finished. I will be sure to post pics as soon as I am finished. I will be out of town for the next week (South Fork here I come!) but I'll be sure to call you upon my return.
     
    Tight lines-

    Dan,

    Thanks for helping with the raffle.   I have one more to verify and I should be off to the printers. 

    Another board member has offered two Mitchell reels that will be going into the pot too.

    There were a lot of guys donating flies and that is very much appreciated.  Please get them in the mail as soon as possible so I can get pictures and put them up on the web page for this raffle.  I should have the page up by the beginning of next week.

    There are several board members that have been working very hard on this in the background and I would like to thank them very much.

    The web page is up and in the process of being completed, http://msocustomrods.com/MSOCustomRods/Terry/raffle_for_terry.htm.
     
    Raffle tickets will be on sale from September 1 through October 31 for $25 per ticket.  I’ll be on the beach chasin’ sharks and playing with my family next week but if the tickets are finished when I get back they can be available a few days earlier.  The drawing for prizes will be November 12 and all prizes will be shipped to the winners via USPS on November 15.  The prizes will be drawn from the first prize down to the last prize.  This will give every ticket purchaser the opportunity to win the top prizes.
     
    The list of prizes grows with each donation.  There have been other things offered for donation that have not been shipped to me so if anyone is still planning to donate please get an email to me, cr500_95@yahoo.com, so we can get the stuff here, photographed and listed on the web page as a prize.  The vest, fly reels and chest pack are in route to me and pictures will be posted as soon as possible.
     
    The custom 4 wt and the 9 ft steelhead rods are in the process of being built and I will keep updating the photographs as I work on the rods.  These were the two rods that were being built for Terry.
     
    I have a bunch of pictures that need to be downloaded, resized and posted so more pictures should be available later today.
     
    I hope everyone will support this project as all proceeds will be given to Terry’s family.  It is very easy to say you are a “Friend of Terry” but now is the time to put your money where fingers are so to speak.  We will need people to sell tickets also.  I will publish the names of those selling tickets, the amount taken, the amount sold and the amount NOT returned as an accounting control.
     
    Below is a list of prizes being offered, I will be updating this thread and the web page over the next few days.
     
    1.    Custom built 8' 4wt fly rod, Orvis Battenkill Traditional 3/4, Orivis Generation 3 4wt line in olive dun and backing
    2.    Custom built 9' 4-8lb steelhead spinning rod with Stradic 2500 and line
    3.    Custom built 10' 6wt steelhead fly rod, Orvis Battenkill Mid Arbor with line and backing. 
    4.    Orvis Clear Water fly fishing vest. 
    5.    Chest Pack. 
    6.    Wooden fly box filled with flies. 
    7.    Wooden fly box filled with flies. 
    8.    2 dozen dry flies.  These are very nice flies and it was hard to keep them from falling in my fly box.

    Jack,
     
    I just sent you an email, if you don't get it send me one at cr500_95@yahoo.com please.  I'd love to add any little help you have in mind.  I also have a struble u24 sitting here if you don't have a seat.  I'd just need to turn the wood insert.
     
    Thanks,

    Scott,
      , will have my cell with me all day!  Can't figure out why our e-mails aren't geting thru? ? ?  Maybe it has something to do with the solunar charts, or the summer rutt.

    I never had such a hard time finding a shipping tube. Same as when I sent the parts to you Jack. Why is this?

    For anyone looking to ship rods or take them on a plane...
     
    Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get the needed diamater of ABS pipe and some test caps.  Custom rod tube that can take a beating and is very lite compared to PVC.  It also buffs to a high gloss black and with abit of work ABS end caps can be made to look very nice.  Go nuts and have the tube engraves and a gold, silver or brass pen from Michaels and a rebuff will look very sweet.

    Hope everyone had an nice week last week.  I'm trying to catch up after a week at the shore and work is not helping.  The tickets are done and I need to get there and pick them up.  We have had a bunch of new donations that I need to add.
     
    • A never fished Wright & McGill and when I say "never fished" I mean "never fished".  It's so never fished that the ferules need to be lapped.  I was going to lap them but on second thought I will not lap the ferules.
    • Another wooden fly box
    • A whole bunch bunch of flies including drys, nymphs and steelhead ties.
    • Also a re-conditioned bamboo rod.

    I also need to update the first post in this thread to reflect the prize list.  Add pictures, web updates, components orders and actual rod building and I'll be at it late for the next few nights.
     
    Thanks everyone for your generosity.
     
    Scott
