Title: Shooting Backpack
Post by: Alan on July 27, 2017, 10:45:43 AM
Okay! Here it is! Your very own, hunting backpack, as sold by Amazon (less the rifle to be sure!). It is my gift to the Guild, and the Guild's gift to you. The only thing I ask in return, is to make a small donation to the Guild. With all that out of the way....

All you need to do to win it, is to guess the birthday of Travis Whitney's mother (Month, Day, Year). Or be closer than anyone else. The contest will close on August 13th (Sunday), or earlier if someone is lucky enough to guess the exact date. Please post your guess in this forum. Thank you!

One more thing. I do not get anything from this contest. Any monies you any donate, goes strictly to the Guild.

You do not HAVE to donate, as it was a suggestion. Speaking only for myself, I hope you do. I like it here, and am doing my best to make sure it stays put.

We're down to the wire almost, as the 13th is the last day. On the 14th, I'll tally up, and announce the winner. All the winner has to do is give me a shipping address.

As it stands now, only five folks have ventured a guess. Pretty slim pickings. Lets hope a few more log on. Nonetheless, I wonder what the turnout would have been, if the prize was a Hatsan Gladias?

Last day!!!!

One person is a scant 15 days off. All considering, that is fairly close. And, as I said, tomorrow morning I'll see if anyone else gets closer.

Well rules stated date month and year
the rules where changed to make it easier.

The actual date Travis' mon was born, was 10/31/35. Shown guessed 11/14, so simple math says he was off by only 15 days. Martin deserves honorable mention, because he guessed 10/15, which is 16 days off.

So Shawn, PM me a full name and shipping address, and I'll have Amazon ship the items directly to you. Yes, as I said, there is a bit of an extra in the package.

Thanks for all who submitted, and an extra thanks to those folks who donated a few dollars to the Guild's cause. Stay tuned for a real deal soon!

Thanks. Just paying it forward, karma and all.
Yesterday the wife and I went out for breakfast and someone paid our bill, so we paid for another couple. As we were walking out my wife noticed an elderly gentleman sitting by himself. My wife thought maybe he was a widower so we went back and picked his up too.
Now I win the contest! What can you say? KARMA

Backpack and blind bag arrived today. Pack has enough pocket to store supplies for a week! Hunters blind bag looks like a handy little gadget.
I will get some pics and post with some different guns mounted.
Members like Alan and everyone else is what makes this such a great forum!
Thanks Again Alan!
