: Thanks Hawkeye!
That super-quality jungle cock cape from Ron Taylor of http://fishermensfeathers.com you might have seen on display at the show is being awarded to Gregg Estey (Hawkeye) for his dedication and service beyond the call this spring. Gregg coordinated the MSBA Flyfishing Forum booth, helped Roop and I build the display booth, ran a fly swap and is going to participate in the Father's Day Big Brother event to cite a few ways he gives to our community.
As soon as I locate where I packed it away after the last Fly Show, it's got your name on it, buddy.
Please join me in thanking Gregg!

Thanks guys, but STOP IT! If I blush any more my face will burn off! I really havn't done that much and what I have done is just a small downpayment on what I have taken, or rather been given, through my association with this group. I'll never be able to pay it all off but it will be a labor of love to make the attempt.
I'll ditto Eddie's last comment - Thanks to all for making the FFF work.
Nice job Greg, well deserved.
This community needs more people to step up like you, Jim W, Terrry, the Doogues, Eddie, PeteL, the Penguin, Striblue and the others have.
Too many lurkers! I hope they realize that the core membership here doesn't get their thrills from labeling people or questions as sophmoric, etc... and that those who do participate reap the rewards of improving their fly fishing abilities and experiences in an exponential manner.
Stepping off the soapbox.
Way to go Greg!

Way to go!

What he said! That's the ticket...
Greg...yet help set the standard for the rest of us to follow!
Lurkers...pay notice and don't hesitate to step up to the plate to make a difference...We're all in this together!

Non ut sibi ministretur sed ut ministret
Words to live by.
Translation: "Not to be served, but to serve."
