Just got final confirmation on check delivery.
I will send each check to CFR with your return addresses if you purchased a fly in the auction.
Rather than sending 9 checks for $2,600 they wanted them sent one by one so when I land in CO I will make them all out for you guys.
You will receive a thank you card with receipt for tax write offs.
With the $300 raised in the raffle (which I will send in one check) we almost raised $3000.
That's awesome.
I'm stoked to have been the runner on this operation.
I've made countless trips to the post office and now I'm on first name basis with every postal worker in the metro Atlanta area.
Good work men, you did a good thing.
:cool

It was good.
Spey fly swap?
My wife will cut my sack off if I host another.
She says I spend way more time on the phone then I do with her.
She's right.

I just read through this whole thread and laughed out loud as much as I did the first time. Man was that ever fun. And I am reminded once again how much I miss Aggers. And Peebs, we should prolly go fishing again. Ever wanna catch a tarpon?
