Come and check out the Raffle!

Aloha Spearos,

Just thought I'd chime in. This is my fifth expo and its been gettin bigger and better every year. It's a wonder how Sheri can continually go above and beyond what was done the year before.

Not only can you buy great gear at great prices, you can also buy tickets to the raffle for things you always wanted and put your ticket for a chance at the hundreds of things up for raffle. All the vendors pretty much donate something great to the raffle. I'll have a few guns in there and this is the first one of three that will be in the raffle. I have a few others ready to go, but am open to suggestions for those that might want to see a special gun there.

This first gun is a magnum hyrid build with some special wood that I have kept on the side for twenty years. On special occasions I build a few guns from this stash and there has been at least one at each Blue wild done with this curly teak.

I'll post the next one when its done. It will be a tinted finish. The last one is open and still looking for ideas.
Come on by and check out the raffle. If you have time stop by and chat.

Aloha,Daryl

Re: Come and check out the Raffle!

Aloha Daryl,
Beautiful gun, I can't wait to see the gun with tint!
If you have more of the curly "tiger" teak I'd vote for a 55" open track Reef gun. I don 't know if you make the full length guns any more, but a full length gun in the tiger teak would look amazing!!.... I'd keep it an open track so less chance of the shafts shark fins chewing up the wood on the edge of the track.

Aloha,
Rob

Re: Come and check out the Raffle!

Do you put in raffle tickets for individual items? Or it it a HUGE hodgepodge raffle ticket collection for all items to be raffled?

Re: Come and check out the Raffle!

Aloha, Just finished the second gun. This one is for the scuba freeshaft gang. Thought I'd do an ocean splash camou on an MG special. This gun paired up with a 7.5 mm Wong shaft is a killer. Same shaft as use by one of the best commercial diver in Florida.
Check it out.

Aloha,Daryl
