OBN Notes: Three Things


Bring on the Drink

Thing One: Watch your snail mail all you recent winners.

I got a fantastic surprise in the mail from AVEX yesterday, the Brazos Autoseal Water Bottle and the  Autoseal Insulated Travel Mug.

Normally I don’t get such perks in the mail, so this rare occasion has me pretty excited. Big thanks and a shout out to AVEX for their generosity to the OBN community.

Thing Two: Hey all you Fall River Bamboo Flyrod participants. The Bamboo has been sent to it’s final destination – ENJOY JOEL!! — but one more thing….I’m going to reprint a comment from Eric aka Home Skillet that was left yesterday:

P.S. Home Skillets email is fullcircleventures at the always cool gmail.com

“Well…………I managed to fight off the urge to steal it and run off into Canada…..the rod is shipped to it’s final destination. congrats Joel!

Also, putting a shout out to all of you that participated. Hooked Up Films is going to be putting together a short promo video on Fall River Fly Rods and the OBN Rod. I only had the durn thing for one weekend and it was 17 degrees out so I have some pretty limited footage.

My plea is that any of you that have really good pics of the rod or the rod in action….would you mind emailing me some to be included in the video? Also are there any objections from anyone if I quote a few of you in the promo?
In return I would be happy to give credit of course and even do a little logo screen time. Just let me know what you all think of this. The promo theme will be upbeat and professional. No gaudy humor or weirdness and copies can be had by all for your own sites.

Thanks all
Home Skillet”

I’m excited to see the promo video!!

Thing Three: Next week the always on the move OBN Joe will be at the SHOT show in Las Vegas. He was wondering if any of you will be around for the show and if so…maybe he can meet some of you!

If you will be down for the show, hit our contact button up yonder and let Joe know. I haven’t got to harass Joe in person for a long time and I would love if someone could do some harassment on my behalf =) Mucho appreciated!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic start to the Year 2013
