2013 POY Information - As of March 3, 2013

2013 POY Information - As of March 3, 2013

Postby Bob » Sat Jan 05, 2013 2:44 am

Folks, I know everyone must be wondering what is going on with the POY. I'll tell you what I know.

I'm sure you have noticed that Eric hasn't been around for a while. I haven't heard from him since Dec. 5th. I offered to help out with the POY and he was thankful saying he was unable to give the project the attention it deserves right now. He also said he doesn't know what's going on with Les right now. I'm assuming Eric emailed Les and hasn't received a response ... but I'm speculating. I don't have Les's email and need to wait for Eric's return to find out what's really going on. I'm sure whatever is taking Eric's attention from this project is of the utmost importance. I'm more than a little concerned and I hope he's well.

With that said, we will continue to assume Les will build the pipes. As soon as I hear from Eric, I will try to contact Les and get things going.

Bob, I hope things are well with Eric as well as Les. I opted out of my reserve list position on this pipe in lieu of another pipe purchase this year. Still, I am hoping this goes well for those still interested and 2013 finds Eric and Les happy and well.

I think I'm a bit more worried about Eric at this point. You haven't heard anything at all from him in a month?

Eric gave me Les's contact info yesterday. I sent Les a message but he has not responded yet. I'm sure he will. I'll let you all know if Les still intends to make the pipes as soon as I hear something. I'll go from there. Honestly guys, I don't know how this is going to turn out. Let's hope for the best.

I've asked Alan (RompinDonkey ) to help out and he will time permitting. So, feel free to PM me or Alan at any time if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks for the update Bob. Hope everything is okay with Eric. Still hoping this project happens as planned. Please let me know if I can help since I have done several group buys on other boards.

I'll make whatever time is required to get this POY back on track.

Good news! I just found out today that Les will be making the pipes. He has a 3 month backlog so I expect deliveries this summer. Les is sending me a picture of the prototype and I'll post it when I get it. I have work to do to sort out all the details and I'm out of town right now in Arkansas visiting relatives. Just wanted you guys to get the news.

Thanks Bob, looking forward to it. Is this still the 2013 POY or are we breaching on the 2014 territory?

Here's the prototype.

It is a 2013 POY. It's normal to have the POY around mid year.

Thanks for posting the prototype. Looks even better than previously discussed. Very nice POY. Would not expect anything less from Les.

That is a very nice looking pipe! I am very happy with the style too.
