First, Ned Greer (Loesshillsarcher) grows a beard as a good luck charm in Mexico and he kills a dandy desert Bighorn Ram in Mexico.

Second, the beard is now firmly escounced on his mug, and his social life has turned for the better. We shared a room at the GSCO convention and this guy was getting calls and text messages from women at 0230 in the AM!!

Third, he wins the GSCO sponsored, Texas hold'em poker tournament at Bally's. They adorn him with cash, a very nice cherry case full of poker chips, and gold bling to compliment his choice of camo. This guy is on a ROLL!!

Bravo Zulu (well done), Mr. Greer!!

Hey Guys

Great time in Vegas good to see some of you there.

Some of you where there and saw it happen. Some you did not so here is the rest of the story On Saturday Feb 20th in Las Vegas at 80 years young Mr Tom Pinello was drawn as a winner of one of the raffle desert sheep hunts with Javier Artees. Tom and have been chasing this dream since 1966 when Tom killed his first ram in Colorado. For the last 39 years Tom has entered as many state license draws and raffles he could afford. He has attend all GSCO conventions in hopes of drawing a desert sheep license. This year it was Tom's year! The smile on his face and tears in his son's eyes said it all. I'm sure he was the happiest man in Las Vegas that night. On Monday David Tom’s son posted a quick note on the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Society forums about his Dad's good luck. Sheep hunting fanatic Terry Marcum knowing the additional added costs (approx $7-$8000) of this "free" hunt pledged $500 to help offset the costs of this hunt. Due to his Dad’s age and health Dave also needs to accompany his dad for support. Dave and his family have scrapped together some of the money but Dave has been out of work for the last 6 months and his Dad’s income is very limited. This hunt will likely take place next month so there is no any time to save up a few extra dollars. Since the ball started rolling others have also chipped in to help.

I know he's not a bowhunter but he is a fellow sheep hunter.

I am hoping some of you can help raise some additional money. You can mail a check or money order direct to Tom or anonymously to me and I will forward the money.

Shoot me and email.

Tom's address can also be found on the GSCO website. It was exciting to see him win the desert hunt. I believe they said he got his first sheep in 1966. Have a good hunt Tom!!

I don't believe this beard BS. I want to know where the shoe is. Ned are you having trouble walking these days?

25-Feb-10
Tom, I am limping a little today but it was because of last night's soccer game. Nothing to do with the golden object. I had one last long look at it before returning it to its owner. Hopefully that will get me through August and British Columbia Stones sheep. Do not discount the beard, it has been my own little magic piece as of late. LOL. Ned
