Thank you again for all that you do to support us, it doesn't go without notice, and it certainly is appreciated. If I can speak for the team, it has been our absolute pleasure to show our appreciation in albeit a small way :) And we are really glad things went well today. It was our intention to make sure that every employee at Martin, from management to the floor, knew they had our thanks :)

Chick's seem to dig that Grey Eagle guy! :darkbeer:

He is a very large and attractive man........... (seems like I hear that everywhere I go.....) :D :D :D



In all seriousness, thank you PUG, Joel, Lifer and each and every employee for helping us do that voodoo that we do.


And as OBT said............. It's not just a catch phrase, it's an attitude.:wink: Proud to be M4L...........:)

Those pictures ROCK. Just seeing everyone having a great time and enjoying what we can give means a lot.... Heck, we enjoy shooting our bows and being M4L more then ever when we can give back like this. Make you REALLY feel like part of the family :smile: That is what archery is about, giving back to others and being part of the 'family'. I can say that the Martin family (M4L) has the most fun!!!

Thanks again Jake, Joel and the rest of Martin Archery for putting up with us somedays. Now, where is that new bow picture? :wink:

Just wanted to add a Big Thank You to the whole Martin Crew. You all have been so supportive of M4L, especially me. I am still learning the Training Wheels and y'all have helped me every step of the way. Thanks Ryan for helping me pick out my bow at Vegas. Thank you to Pug for getting me the bow and to Joel who has spent so much time walking me step by step through setting up P3. You get the idea, you all Rox my Sox.

Grey Eagle is da bomb for creating the chance to say Thank You. Thanks to Mac and all the rest that helped it come together.

Basically Thank you to everyone at Martin and thank you to my fellow M4Ls. You guys are people I am proud to be associated with (even the Naughty boy OBT)

Wow, sounds like a fun time. I just wish we could have been there... Thanks to Grey Eagle for his vision and I'm sure it wasn't an easy task to coordinate this event.

I will have to plan a visit to Walla Walla some day, I would love to see the factory and meet all the people.

Heck yes...........ROAD TRIP!!!!! Between my truck and Mr. H4E's truck we can haul eight more people to Walla2........with Toothy's rig we could take another three. We should pick a date and put this together. It would be a blast!!!


Thanks Grey Eagle for putting this all together, I know it wasn't an easy task.

To the Martin staff...........Thank you for all you do. It was an honor to be a part of the feast yesterday, I sincerely hope you all enjoyed it. :D :D :D :D
