YouthintheWind let me apologize for not sending the lures I said I was. Been pretty tough around home lately. My mother is fighting a battle with breast cancer and not doing to well. Haven't been able to get a lot of painting done over the last couple months but hopefully things will get better. Again I am deeply sorry and you will receive lures from my son and I for the next contest .................Joe

Wish I would have never entered this contest. I was the winner of the contest but I wish I wasn't. Over 3 months have went by with no trophy/plaque, money or a good explanation. I would have been better off keeping my lure and fishing with it!!! What a waste of time and money making a lure for a contest that might not even be real. I don't know what to believe. Lots of false promises. I think this was a contest that was unorganized from the beginning and I got caught up in it. All I want at this point is my lure back!! I am not happy and I think I will quit typing before I say something I shouldn't.

Wow, this is sad. I have spent 15 years in a boys ministry called the Royal Rangers but have been out of it for about 6 yrs now. Youthinthewild is only 15 minutes away and as I was reading the posts I was getting excited about getting involved with his program. I'm really disappointed he didn't come through. Our bass club takes Brownies/Girl scouts fishing every year and it's a blast to see them catch their first fish.

I am very sorry Cedar My wife has been in and out of hospital just this month to hospital 8 separate times 3x by ambulance Since finding out she has a tumor on her brain and Fibromyalga which makes daily living feel like hell.I never said anything to Cedar about this because i dont like to make excuses and for that i am sorry Cedar.Guys i started this before i found any of this out and it has turned my life into a Tornado.....I will make good on this Cedar If you can give me till next week my money is very tight right now but i will make it happen and yes i am embarrased about this AGIAN I AM SORRY Cedar Hope you can forgive.

I'm sorry to hear about your wife. If money is tight I understand. Don't worry about the money just send the plaque. What I don't understand is why the prize was not sent out right away when I won over three months ago?

I believe youthinthewind meant to say "my wife has been in and out of the hospital. Just this month..." etc., meaning she has been sick for a while. The lack of a period after hospital makes the difference. I'm sure everyone reading this thread wishes you and your wife the very best, youthinthewind. Its easy to understand how nothing else mattered once u found out. God bless you and your wife. I'm sure a bunch of us in the TU crowd will be sending you prayers tonight.

Sorry to hear about your wife's illness. My best wishes for both of you.

This is the first time someone close to me has suffered like she has and i thought i knew how i would handle it but man I was wrong just been a lesson in compassion for me....But faith for my wife...

I could be wrong and I hope I am.
I think this whole thing was a sham from the git-go.

He contacted me through another member on this site and wanted my address sent to his personal email. I sent him my address on April 4th and I haven't heard a thing from him ONCE AGAIN!!! I think your right Coley it is a scam. There was other guys who sent lures also. Looks like I will write this up as a loss! I wish he would quit contacting me and acting like he is going to send out the plaque and then nothing!! So much for helping out fatherless boys!!

Oh by the way, I can see he can keep logging onto the TU site. He was on at 5:32pm and didn't bother contacting me.
Posted 08 April 2013 - 09:30 PM
He emailed me at 9:06 pm tonight. He says he has the plaque and I should get it Monday. We will see. I have been told this for months. I will post what happens.

So, is he sending your lure back, or is he fishing with it?
