We are doing fairly well, recovering the costs of the stolen anti snagging shirt. As of October 30th, we have collected $347.00 of the $500.00 that GBS has put out, of his own money.

I am continually impressed with the fine people at ifish.net. I am humbled by your generosity and good will! Our ifish family never ceases to amaze me! Seems like with the Holidays coming up, and our Christmas Toy Drive, the best is coming out in us all! :smile:

I haven't checked with Marie at Tillamook Bait, to see if she has sold many. That's where my money would be recovered from. I'll call to check.

In case you aren't aware of the case of the stolen anti snagging shirts that, here is the story, in threads, as they evolved: (Just click on the words in bold, below)



Snagging Shirts! Let's Roll!

Pick up Pay Info:

Shirts at Fisherman's Marine, tonight!

Where can I pick up a shirt?

Shirts Stolen!

Success Story!

Anyway... Our project has been hijacked! The shirts GBS had made were stolen! We are slowly recovering the costs, and hope to be able to get more made.
I have had several inquiries into trying to help recover costs for the shirts.
Is anyone interested in my setting up a pay pal account for this?
Or, is there a better way?
If you'd like to help us recover the costs for the shirts, please send make checks payable to ifish.net, and I'll reimburse GBS.

I'd definitely help. In fact I'd buy more shirts at a higher price to help GBS recover some of the losses. Maybe some other ifishers would be willing to preorder at a higher price to help recover some cost.

There is certainly still a demand for more shirts, and whatever I can do to get more people wearing them I'll do. Just a thought....

I will do anything you think is right.
If you need a PO box to send to, I'll use mine.
If you want me to set up paypal, I will.
I'll also be sending a check, GBS, so fear not. We'll get this handled.

I will donate as well, has it been deceided as to where to send the money? I really hate snagers now, also I think if you use paypal they may charge you a small amount for the use of the service... not sure though

I need to know, from GBS, what the amount is.

I guess I'll go ahead and start it.

Since I don't think GBS wants his name public, make the checks out to ifish, and I will send GBS a check from ifish.

No one will be making one dime off of this project. If we have an overage, the extra cash will go to the purchase of more shirts, or will in some way, benefit our rivers or fisheries.

I'll send a check. Just a idea, why not order new shirts, raise the price to cover the cost of the stolen shirts and just start over with a little higher cost to anyone that want to purchase one. They seemed real cheap in price before and Im sure people would pay ten dollars each or more to cover the cost of the old and reordered ones.

Check will be in the mail today. If GBS wants to sell again in the portland area, let me know and I can be available during the week. I would prefer to do it during the daytime as my night vision isnt

Will do. I don't think GBS reads ifish on the weekends. I'll have to talk with him, first. I think this will be a nice surprise for him.
We are a good group, aren't we? :smile:

I could do it with my PO box, too.
Or, if Brad has one...
