Re: Lawrence Waldron vice - Raffle for Casting for Recovery

Dunno, Mark.
What I do know is that if all tickets get sold,

So since the draw has not been held, there should be some left.
Max ten, so go gettem scout and pull that draw closer

All in an excellent cause
Thanks,
Roy

Re: March brown Edmonds & Lee

Nik - How did you make the wing? I'm a bit unclear about what Edmonds&Lee meant: "Wings - From a quill feather from a Partridge's tail, greyish in tone, the top side of the feather as the under side of the wing."
