Lures for Cures

I know some of you aren't on facebook but might be interested in this.
.


What the hell is this Lures for Cures?.......Basically it starts with a bunch of sawdust and paint covered lure makers that have all got to know each other through our main facebook page called Timber Lure Making and Painting. These luremakers have kindly combined their skills to take part in a lure swap and charity auction.

Okay how does it all work?......There are 4 teams, each containing 6 lure makers. Each lure maker makes 7 of the same signed and marked lures. He then keeps 1 lure for himself, swaps 5 lures off to the other members of his team and sends 1 lure off to the central holding person who hangs onto the lure until such time as the online auction happens on the Friday the 31st October 2014 . Funds raised from the sale of these 4 collectors sets of 6 lures then go to a nominated Charity.


Who is the Charity that gets the proceeds?....This is still being worked out by the group and will be announced on Monday 8th Sept and will be posted on this page. Front runner at the moment is the Garvan Institute of Medical Research which is a leading researcher into the cure of many diseases including Cancer and Parkinsons.

Who are the Jokers that are handcrafting and donating these lures?....
Our Teams are: Team 1.. Joshua ThePhantom Bancroft-Arnott... Troy Erland...Scott Anderson... Greg Vinall.. Jason Nicholson... Peter Baskerville

Team 2.... Luke Finch..Jonny Pace...Toogoodtogetwet Lures..Mark Houghton...Adam Falkenberg....Adam Shouldbefishing..

Team 3.... Erlz Larsen.... Jamie At Gobsmacked.... Thawatchai Winnie Kittikunsuwan...De Plane De Plane.... Luke Mulley.....Steve Cowell.


Team 4... Damien Newman..... Mick Gillard... Chester Emery...Clint Thatch Thatcher... Squire James Sebo... Dean Micheal

Reserve..Peter Walker

Donated Lures..Mikko Okkonen...
Damien Newman (Alicias Lures)
Russell Sanford (JD/Eddy Lures)
Adam Shouldbefishing (Black Dog Lures)

Are any of these guys any good?.... Hell Yeah...Many of these guys run there own lure making businesses and turn out some amazing lures that we will be showcasing on this page in the lead up to the big auction on the 31st October.

Cheers,
Damo.

This is our page that i have just set up on the Garvan webpage, this page will be linked to the main webpage that we are setting up. If you have a quick look at the page you will notice that you can submit donations and also that it has a bar graph that monitors how much has been donated. This page will also be linked to our ebay auction site and all funds will be directly credited to Garvans account and will show up straight away in the little graph thingy. Cheers Mick
