Hey folks

Seems like most people's second favourite past time (behind lure collecting) is telling Marty he needs a haircut...


So everyone has probably seen the recent thread thanking Martin (horrorhead) for a donation to the running costs of the website.

Long story short, I bought some stuff off him and he said send the money to Tony rather than to him.
The only way I could see to thank such a champion thought was to immediately volunteer him for a fund raising haircut

I was just looking after his health, it's too hot up in Cooktown to be rocking that mop through summer...
That's just the sort of good mate you get with me...

Anyway it turns out the official shave for a cure (now called worlds greatest shave) is ages away and that gives him too long to rethink his decision.

So what we're thinking is a solid 6 week marketing campaign and a haircut late next month.
It will be a crew cut down to bare blade - razors are at Martins discretion...

Money will be split between the running costs of lure lovers (because of course this is what brings us together), the leukemia foundation (in honor of stealing the idea for the greatest shave) and the prostate cancer foundation of Australia (because Marty suggested it).

So for right now, we're in 'pledge mode'...

Make a pledge. No money needs to change hands for now.

(I'm happy to accept and redirect money if required - but given the charities involved I thought people might want to donate it directly and get the tax deduction receipt.)

Then when the time comes Martin can recruit a videographer and a hairdresser. I'm sure there are 3 at least 2 other people in Cookstown...

The pledge list so far is;
$50 from Nicho
$50 from Ducks

And, go!

Oh yea, I know splitting 3 ways is a bit harder but I thought stuff it, we're all big boys we'll work it out. What's a bit of a rounding error between friends...

Just to add extra funds...if you send me some of your hair(preferably well washed with D'ecore) I will make a lure incorporating some of your locks and auction it..with proceeds going to tony for running of the site, I'm sure a few others will offer as well to make it a decent contribution?
Can be run as a separate auction after the shave?
