Folks, I started a thread a short time ago titled, "SOMETHINGS COMING FOLKS".

Well, here it is, "THE TRADITION LIVES ON", signature bow.

The bow is a "TEMBO" from Howard Hill Archery Co. with a silver Elephant inlaid in the riser. The limbs are white glass where signatures will stand out.

Here are just a few of the many signatures of these torch bearers of traditional archery that will be represented on this bow.

G. Fred Asbell ~ Bob Lee ~ Gene & Barry Wensel ~ Byron Ferguson ~ T.J. Conrad ~ Dick Robertson ~ Monty Browning ~ Ron LaClair, with many others coming.

I'll be raffling the bow with the proceeds going to a local Boy Scout Camp and an organization called Children's Harbor, which works with extremely ill children.

There's also a plaque the bow will actually hang on (the pegs are not on it on this particular photo).

The bow should be here very soon and I will be posting photos of the bow when I get it as well as when I start getting the signatures on it.

Even though I'm starting this thread now, I'll be really be kicking this endeavor off at this year's Howard Hill Southeastern Classic, June 2, 3 & 4, 2017. The signature bow will be taking its journey across the country collecting the signatures and It will be drawn for at the 2018 Howard Hill SE Classic.

I will have to say that everyone one of these individuals were humbled to be asked to sign this bow. In my opinion, this is why they are such outstanding torch bearers for traditional archery.

Sounds like an interesting undertaking and a great way to raise funds for two well deserved recipients. Will be looking forward to future posts and seeing pictures as the signatures are added to "Tembo". There are a lot of deserving signers and will be hard not to miss some.

It's here, "THE TRADITION LIVES ON" bow!!!

Folks, this bow will start it's journey gathering signatures from some of the best torch bearers in traditional archery, starting at this year's Howard Hill Southeastern Classic.

It will then wind up, after making stops in Texas and Missouri, to the Compton Rendezvous for more. I'll pick it up there and then send it to several states around the country before it gets back to me.

The bow will be raffled off at next year's Howard Hill SE Classic with the proceeds going to Camp Jack Wright, Boy Scout Camp and Children's Harbor which works with very ill children. I'll be selling these raffle tickets throughout this next year.

Thanks Shick, in my personal opinion, I believe this bow will be a collectors item.

Well......not really. I really can't imagine anyone shooting this bow, but, whoever wins the bow can do whatever they want.

And no, I don't think I'll tackle another one that's left handed, LOL.

Right now, I have another great torch bearer, making 21 of these great folks in traditional archery who said they'd be proud to sign this bow.

Folks, there are THREE of these gentlemen signing tis bow that are already in the Archery Hall of Fame.

Who knows what the fire will bring for some others on this bow.

No offense, but for such a soon to be important bow the ink is horrible, especially from someone who cranks them out.

Great idea but man the Elephant and the writing is horrible, Sorry but there are lot of folks out there who could of done that part of the bow proud. I think our own Kelly Peterson should sign it. Few folks realize how much he has done for our sport and how many of the greats he has bow hunted with! Shawn

Well fellas, I am 52 and my writing is not great. How old is Craig? Late 60s? How many bows has his hands made? The writing is fine. It is Craig's.

Well done, Terry. Ignore the naysayers. Good luck on the fundraiser.

Thanks Bud B., it's hard to please everyone and I know they mean no harm.

Folks, here are the gentlemen that were not only proud but said they were humbled to sign this bow. I know there others known I may not have gotten, but I really feel I got some of the best of traditional archery's torch bearers.

Here they are:

G. Fred Asbell ~ Ken Beck ~ Monty Browning ~ Jerry Brumm ~ Neil Byce ~ Len Cardinale ~ Ron LaClair ~ Marvin Clyncke ~ T.J. Conrad ~ Craig Ekin (name's on the riser as the Bowyer who donated this bow) ~ Byron Ferguson ~ Roger Fulton ~ Dale Karch ~ Bob Lee ~ John Lee ~ Dick Mauch ~ Dick Robertson ~ Steve Turay ~ Barry Wensel ~ Gene Wensel ~ Bob Wesley

The Bow will then head to Texas for Bob Lee's Signature and then head to Missouri for Ken Beck's and Roger Fulton's signatures.

The bow will then be brought to the Compton Rendezvous for several more.

Whats the specs on the bow Terry?

From: THarris
Date: 10-May-17




I believe it's 50# at 28", 68 inches in length.

I didn't have the specs put on the bow, IMO, I didn't think anyone would ever shoot this bow. But, what the heck, if they win it, it's their's to do what they want to do.

Terry Harris

BTW, Craig Ekin will coat the bow again after all the signatures are on the bow, to make sure the signatures are protected.

From: Darkarcher
Date: 10-May-17




Personally having the spec on the bow is very important. Passing it down to generations its part of the story. Maybe consider having it added before last coat.

Roger will carry the bow to the Compton Rendezvous where I'll meet him and start picking up several more signatures before I bring it home. I'll post more photos of those signatures.

The bow will then again make the journey across the country to get the rest of the signatures.

Tickets are very easy to get, just let me know when you want your.

Just got off the phone with Dick Mauch's wife, he's signed the signature bow today.

BTW, Dick Mauch will be inducted into the "Archery Hall of Fame" in 2018. That will be four Archery Hall of Fame inductees signatures that will currently be on "The Tradition Lives On" signature bow. Who knows what the future holds for the possibility of the others.

The bow is now heading to Marvin Clynke, then on to Dick Robertson.

Folks, I don't know if I've mentioned this, but I'll also be putting together a "The Tradition Lives On" book, to go with this bow. The book will not only have the individuals that have signed this bow, but some history about them as well.

This way, whomever wins this bow and hopefully hands it down to a next generation, they'll also be able to see how these torch bearers of traditional archery had kept our sport of traditional archery going.

An afterthought, but having each shoot the bow, if possible, would have been pretty dang cool.

From: THarris
Date: 18-Jul-17




Well Bud, one of the reasons that a string wasn't even put on the bow was that wax from the string might have interfered with the ink from the pen.

I will, however admit, it WOULD have been pretty dang cool.

After I get it, I'll post some new photos and signatures, then send it on to the remaining signees.

Folks, please let me remind you, the proceeds from this bow will go to help to outstanding organizations. Best of all, someone will win, what I consider to be, a piece of traditional archery history.

Folks, this bow is important to me for more than just raising money for a couple of well deserved organizations.

Ever since I've been involved in traditional archery and along the years, I've heard of and even met many of these individuals. Some of these gentlemen no longer travel to events because of their age, but their footprint to help keep traditional archery going can never be replaced.

For, if it hadn't have been for these bearers of the torch of our sport, traditional archery might have disappeared when compounds came into archery.

We have to keep the flame of our tradition going by reminding those that are coming behind us who these outstanding individuals are and to have them pass down the names, not only of the forefathers of traditional archery, but these men as well.

How 'bout Midge Dandridge and Bob Marksworth...?? Talk about Southern California Archery icons!! Check them out. Yes, they both eventually moved onto the compound, but... In their day, they were both really something... (***And let's not forget Tim Meigs!! The man who was there for us for so many decades from the very beginning***)

I'm sure there are others that many feel show be on this bow, but it will only hold so many. I actually tried to get a hold of Tim as well as a couple of others before I got all I've got now. I even had one that declined to sign it, but that's how it goes.

I really feel I have some of the best out there, IMO.

I also feel this bow is already a collectors item. Who knows how many more who've signed this bow will also be inducted into the National Archery Hall of Fame.
