We can do it just like last year, each guy makes one plug for the person who's name he draws. Maybe do repro's of some classic's this year. Last year we did 2 plugs at the last minute and had the auction for Bill and Jules. Maybe do the same this year for a worthy cause!

And Paul you can do one or two plugs in your sleep!

That's 7, let's let It ride for a few weeks to see if there is more interest. No rush on this. Anyone have any ideas for this?

Personally, I like the swaps where everybody gets 1 plug from each builder involved.

Say you have 7 people, you make 7 plugs and send them to the organizer, with money to cover shipping, he then packages up 6 plugs (1 from each builder other than you) and sends you a "Care" package of 6 plugs. The 7th plug goes to JohnR to Auction/Raffle off for the site or other worthy Charity.

You limit it out to maybe 10 people max.....so you don't spend all winter making 30 plugs just for the swap

this is just my 2 cents.....I'll do it however you want. I'm easy

Interested!

Would prefer to choose the type of plug myself, as I have limited time, experience and tools.

Perhaps a theme that will encourage the less experienced guys to get involved, and in so doing learn from the mavens like Ted and Numby.

Just a thought...

I would be interested but only for one or two, not 10. I'm getting very close to finishing up a strip built Mahogany kayak, and have not yet stepped into the lure shop to blow the dust off the equipment.

I'm with Douglas. Would like to keep it small. You could probably twist my arm and I would do 10 but would rather put my mind to several good ones. What about 3 plugs. Two rounds of randomly picked #'s and one to go into a pot for charity or the site? As for themes how about lipless swimmers or any swimmer without a conventional metal lip?

I'd do as many as 8, but that's my limit. Two sounds good though

Why not pick a name to build for and then do a random drawing so each participant gets two plugs?

And I like the idea of doing lipless

Let's keep it to a max of 3 plugs. Two plugs worked out well last year, I think I could handle 3. I also like the idea of Lipless, but I am not doing Nikes! I have another Lipless I want to try. If any one is challenged by the lipless I think we can all lend some help and advise.

I make that 11 in on the swap:
Dad,Skippy,Rene,Ted,Dave,Mojo,Woody,Doug,Paul I,Timber and yours truly.
What are we looking at for finish date? Three plugs as Dave said so all get two and one for an auction? Lipless?

Fine with me......I'd go with end January for a date.....gets people through the Holidays.

The Lipless thing might actually get me off my A$$ to do the Roman Nikes I've been wanting to try.
