Re: Gil Gacula Speargun Raffle!!! LOOK HERE

Ok guys, Thank you for your patience. There has been about 1,000,001 things going on down in my tiny islands this year and most of its been great.


This auction took a good bit of logistics to keep everything in order. By the end of this week I will tally up all the dollar bills and all the numbers.. I wanted to update the thread with some info on the extra prizes for the runner ups...


I have spoken with the winner Zenon and have his info and am in contact with a few other people right now via PM on here.

Right now, I need address please.

Ive tried contacting most of the people already. However, if you are reading this thread and dont get anything, please message ME...the pm system on this forum is good, but sometimes it gets the case of the dumb ass and some messages get stuck in la la land....anyhow..here goes..



2nd place Ugo Cianciulli
3rd place Joe Zambrano
4th Michael MAGNO
5th Tracy Demuro

All Runner-ups will receive...A Kwtony OG photographs and Handmade Key West Lobster Trap picture frame and a Florida Keys Salt Scrub. worth 29.95




also..if you ever come to the Keys, I will also personally take you out on a trip to some of my super secret grunt spots and we will limit out on them. spearfishing or fishing, whatever you want. This package is worth $5.50



These are samples of some of what I do, and the sizes I make.




This folder holds about 70 photos of mine. Photography one of my few true passions, if you look on my instagram, facebook, myspace, Christian Mingle pages, you might see some of my work. There are pics that I have not shown on social media, to my friends or my family of key west. From fighter jets to submarines. Your photo will be one of a kind and unique to you.

Thank you so much for everyone that bought tickets and helped with sharing and connecting me with the appropriate people. Updated will be made this week as far as final numbers and i will have a check sent out to the family as soon as i get all the money and numbers together and tallied up

Re: Gil Gacula Speargun Raffle!!! LOOK HERE

Anyone see or hear from Tony?
I hope he is ok.

I have not received anything from him. He hasn't returned my last few messages. Over a month ago he apologized and said something would come right away.
At best he was in over his head arranging a raffle, based on the moving deadlines and no response here.

I paid him for an AB Biller gun back in Jan. No gun. No reply to any of my many messages.

Tony has always been a standup guy. I am sure that something out of his control will explain this. Hope he is not in the hospital or something.

Re: Gil Gacula Speargun Raffle!!! LOOK HERE

Tony had something happen that was out of his control. The guns were not in his possession and I'm sure while important they were the least of his worries. I've only known Tony to be helpful and an honest person. There is nothing misleading of disingenuous going on so just give him a little time and I'm confident he will fulfill all his commitments. I understand he got both guns back recently and will be getting them out as promised.

Any updates on kwtony? I sure hope he is doing okay. What a selfless guy... such a nice gesture for a legendary gun builder and his family.

Re: Gil Gacula Speargun Raffle!!! LOOK HERE

So what happened with the Raffle, the guns and the money the forum members donated toward support of the widow and her family?

x2. He has been active on social media so fingers crossed there was a happy ending here...

Re: Gil Gacula Speargun Raffle!!! LOOK HERE

I see Tony has logged on several times since I raised the question, yet he refuses to respond and provide the most basic information about the results of the raffle?

I don't think that is fair to everyone who supported Gil's family, nor to Gil's wife. Come on KWTony.

Re: Gil Gacula Speargun Raffle!!! LOOK HERE

Well, in retrospect, I do have to admit this is one of my most ill-timed posts -with the Keys being evacuated and all hell about to break loose...

We've waited this long, another couple of weeks is probably not going to make much of a difference.

Re: Gil Gacula Speargun Raffle!!! LOOK HERE

Would be nice to know how this worked out...

Hopefully our ticket money actually went to the Gacula family...

Anyway, we freedivers are used to holding our breath.
