    I have asked Darin for permission to run a fundraiser, when he gets back with me there will be more info in here on that.

    Stumpys Customs Shop burned couple days ago no one was hurt, but he lost a bunch.

    In the OKARMOKSTX GTG thread (the last 10 pages or so of the thread are worth reading) there is some info, I will cross post some of that info over here in a little bit.

    Stumpy is a great guy. I talked with him on the phone to tell him what I was doing he didn't want to except but said I won't slap you in the face by not excepting. I was at his place couple summers ago, he has a great family. One of his boys (we call him cookie monster) lost his saw as well more info later but thinking we need to come up with a 50cc saw for the youngster.

    I told him when one of our own is down, let us help. I don't think its charity.

    Charity comes from people you don't know you know us.

    Just about all the guys in the GTG thread are offering the labor to rebuild a shop. I will post as we figure it out. I will post my PayPay and mailing address later.

    Some members have donated things to raffle in this thread more after Darin says its ok.

    Edit: for now I don't want this thread sticky, they don't get read like a thread that moves, the OKARMOKS guys know how to keep a thread on top. :msp_biggrin:

    That is cool man because that boy is just like his dad and loves Husky saws. I had gave him a stihl a while back he liked it but likes Husky better.

    Edit: if I remember right he traded the Stihl for a Husky and that is the one that burned.

    I'll get with some of the key players and come up with a date.

    Edit: I may get some help from past fundraiser hosts for advice. Brad, Arrowhead, Scooterbum, Joat.
