Ozbow under new ownership

#1 Post by Stickbow Hunter » Sun Mar 09, 2014 9:12 pm

As from the date of this notice Ozbow is Under New Ownership. After more than eight years of owning and running Ozbow Jude & I decided it was time to pass the site onto a new owner.

The new registered owner of Ozbow is Steve Farrell (longbow steve).

Thank you to all the members for keeping the site active and informative over those years. A special thanks to those who helped with the administration of the site.

Thanks

Jeff & Jude

Jeff and Jude, well done. May you travel along an easy road. Without this site life would be far less interesting.
Steve, good on you.

Does this mean we can call semi recurves deflex/reflex modern longbows now?

As far as I'm concerned, it couldn't be in safer hands.

You've done a wonderful job over the years Jeff, often under trying circumstances.
I sincerely hope that you will remain a highly valued and regular poster on the site. I'm sure that you will, as your interest in traditional archery runs very deep, besides, you have too many friends here on the site to neglect us. Thanks Jeff and also thanks to Steve for taking the job on.
There is no use focusing on aiming if you don't execute the shot well enough to hit what your are aiming at.

Yes Jeff, a big thankyou for all you have done for Traditional Archery. Not just on Ozbow but in the magazines and the Muster etc. You were a big influence in my choice to follow the path of Trad Archery.
All the best for your future and enjoy yourselves! Regards Steve

Oh that is good news Steve, we couldn't have things change too quickly, and you have all our support.

Jeff and Jude, you have endured plenty in the years of owning this site, so now you can kick back and relax, and please add a comment from time to time, just to keep us in line. :biggrin: Take Care.

cheers

Talk about cards close to your chest!! :wink:

Thanks Jeff and Jude, you served your time well and with a great deal of dedication, take the best of care and happy travelling, I have no doubt you will chuck in the occasional post and maybe do a couple of build along's as well! :wink:

Steve
Does that mean you will have your name in red ?? I am a bit worried about these terms and conditions though :lol:
The nature of the site is in rock solid hands ...Onya Steve :biggrin:
