Thank You for the donations
« on: February 23, 2015, 10:36:13 PM »
I'd like to send out a huge THANK YOU to the vendors that so graciously sent donations to NC turn a thon. We were able to put some of it to good use. This year instead of taking a picture of the table with all the goodies I wanted you to see the finished products.

Al @Tho game calls store sent an assortment of call kits, bags, and bands.

Kellie @ Midland plastics sent various colors of cast acrylic blanks.

Ernie @ Beartooth woods sent some of his call kits.

Mark @ Dbros woods sent beautiful wood blanks.

Chris @ Palmetto pens and calls sent some of his cast blanks.

Ron @ Goulds custom bands sent a great selection of anodized bands.


IT was decided at the NCTAT that most of the calls we made over the weekend would be donated to Brian Ferguson to use at his benefit fund raiser on Feb. 28th. I spoke to Brian earlier today and I feel like this was the least we could do for the family.
Again, Thank You so much for the donations for us to use this weekend.

Well done John.  I want to personally say a big thank you to all the vendors mentioned above as well.  Your generosity is much appreciated. In that the vendors gave so graciously, we decided to give back ourselves.  We truly hope that the calls being sent out for the benefit brings some sort of help and peace to a family in need.

Al, you and the other donors were not a small part it... you are a HUGE part of it.  Our take away from the weekend, and hopefully everyone else's, is that what we all did collectively together, will help and assist or otherwise bring some peace to a family in their time of need!

Again, sir, hats off to you and all the other vendors who donated so graciously!

Thank you ALL !
These calls were all put up for auction and everyone there loved the calls. All proceeds went to the Ryan Fox girls trust funds.
I will say that all the calls sent made far more money then the majority of the items.
There were a lot of hunters there that appreciated some fine top quality built calls that the money helped out to a great cause.
Thank You again to all.
Brian

Brian, I'm so glad to hear that the NC TAT gang could do some good and help out.  Mostly, though, I hope the family heals and finds peace.  We were only a minuscule portion to this process. 

Thank you for allowing us to contribute and for sharing this.

Also, a hearty thanks to John Roach for handing the logistics for getting the calls to the right place.

Sincerely,

Jeff
