Owl's first trout on the fly came from the Coleman River.

My tying bench has Rise stickers on it already so that means I should get bonus points. Sign me up.

Whoa! You are on the ball! That's exactly the way it's done. I think you are going to be a contender!

Alright, lemme see...that's....

15 points (remind me of the "cat post" again when Mike approves it in case I don't see it and that will be another 10 on top of those 15. )

Look out Clif! He's gonna win your rod an reel!

You know, I really didn't think about it but Mr. Kreh might wonder what in the world is going on when people start coming up wanting him to say "Owl Jones is nuts!" at every event. I'm thinking the first one to ask might have a shot, but after that he'll think we're all nuts! Smile LOL But hey, I mean for 1000 points!? Who cares, right? ( You guys do not know, could not know - how much I want to take this thing to the river and give it some love.....*sigh...)

I'm officially IN.
I have accomplished the following:
5 pts. - Placing a photo of an owl somewhere on your blog/website that is linked to OwlJones.com.
Do I get a bonus point for it being a really nice owl photo that I took myself in nature?

[Sorry Jay, no bonus points! HEY, that IS a nice owl!!! How about some ooooh's and ahhhhhh's? Smile ]

I know who you are Dell. Just make sure you link to everything when you claim your points ( that goes for everyone, please.) so it's easier on me to keep track of them.

Clif - I'm thinking you're going to have some pretty stiff competition once word gets out! Smile

Owl you are a crack pot. Love the list of ways to get points. This has to be one of the best giveaways in a long time. Looks like lots of fun so count me in.

BTW Owl, I used the contest button in my blog post, does that count for 50pts?

[You sir, just racked up 30 points, but I don't see the "button" from the homepage here on the forum post!? - owl]

Guys, this is already getting confusing for me! Smile

So, I'm going to do what I've been doing in posting my validation of your points inside your posts ( in bright blue). Each time I validate and add your points to your total, I'll post up and let you know. That way I won't overlook your points - but again, please keep track of them yourself too in case I do slip up and miss something.
