I think he was just implying that those were last years prizes so this year prizes should be up to par if not better than last years

Re: BW Raffle

This might whet your appetite!

This gun with the tunas was painted by Guy Snell. Daryl is partnering with one of the artists every year to make a special edition speargun for the Expo. Pretty nice, huh?!?

Another one of his guns this year will have a wahoo inlay done by one of our new inlay artists -- it's done with real mother-of-pearl from abalone shells. Yes, it can be used underwater, though you might want to hang it on your wall.

Daryl's guns are already beautiful, but adding this fine artwork to them makes them even more stunning!!!

Re: BW Raffle

Sherri do you know if the raffle is going to be better on Saturday or Sunday. Or about 50/50 both days?

Re: BW Raffle

We try to make it about even both days. There's a slightly smaller crowd on Sunday, so your odds might be better that day.

Re: BW Raffle

Do you have to be present to enter the Raffle or can you buy tickets online and have the item shipped if you happen to win?

No, we do not sell tickets online and we do not ship. Some people have had friends that are present at the show do the raffle for them too. Gotta be able to trust that friend though!

Re: BW Raffle

Can you believe this boat is going to be in the raffle?!?!

OK, not really. But it will be on display at the Expo.

Contender Boats just joined as an exhibitor. This is a new Carey Chen wrapped Contender. Very pretty, huh?

What a great idea partnering with another artist; might not want to get that gun wet!

The grain of teak on the other gun is prettty amazing as well.
