Contest Reporting Thread for 4/18

Post by Owl on Mon Apr 18, 2011 8:36 pm

Sorry guys, I had to take RD to the airport today and we had some video to edit and I totally forgot to put up this thread. Because of that, I'll let it stay open until tomorrow night to give everyone a chance to have their points validated. Then, tomorrow night at 8pm est. after the thread closes, I'll tally up all the points and get the leaders updated asap.

So let's see them links, fellars! What did you do this week to win that rod and reel!?

PS - this week's entry will END the points-list-validation portion of the contest. The second half of the contest will be announced soon. So get ready to do some writing!

Fortunately (and slightly unfortunately) - my last week was taken up in matters other than the contest, so my only entry this week is


New Fly Fisher (my newborn son James) - thanks Owl! - 500 bonus points...

New fly fisher to be

So - if I read the above post right Owl, there won't be any more points-tasks? So we shouldn't bother continuing to work through the task list for next week?

I'm (hesitantly, for better or worse) in. Mr brookmantrout is intimidating the heck out of me with the post above, so we'll see if this works...
