  12. They didn't publicize it but me, the one and only Shortdrift came in second and was allowed to draw the winning person's name. :D With that now being known you may want to consider tossing aside Misfit's volunteer role :rolleyes: :p and take me along instead. :)

    Thanks for all the nice comment's you guy's. I stopped by Jim's today to tell him about winning not expecting him to post it but post it he did. No one was more suprised than myself to recieve an e mail telling me I had won. Living down here near Steubenville I was unable to make it to Pitts. for the Classic and now I get to go to Kissimmee, Fla for free. Can't beat that with a stick!!!!
    Wish I would have known you were the person that drew my name Shortdrift. You know I would have asked you but the second slot's already filled. I'll keep you in mind also Misfit. With a handle like that I know we would get along just fine!! The Classic is Feb 24-25-26 on Lake Toho. I'll keep you informed of any other developements....Pete....AKA....Hatchetman

    Sounds like a nice trip.
    You'll have to get out on Toho to fish. Watch for the 12 seater airboats and check out where they stop in the back bay. The tourists take pictures and ooh and ahh over alligators they don't know are fake.
    It's pretty hilarious.
    What was the contest about? Did you just mail in an entry form for a drawing, buy a new Ranger or compete in a tournament or something?
  20. Hey Brother,(and he really is) That's great. Hope you get over to see me while your on your trip. Know you will enjoy.You always were the lucky one in the family.Don't know why you need one of the top 35 to give you tips after I taught you all I know. LOL ;) ;)
