Our Carlos? Our Chuck? Well, beings the rumer Levi has a chunk of Elite maybe Carlos wants a piece :confused:

Elkhunter

I'm sure Sonny, that if its true, its because he wants to be part of the new "Levi Nation" !!! --- He hasn't posted anything on here for quite a while now --- maybe he's off on a trip to the factory to negotiate a contract, and test shoot some of their bows.

All I heard, was that Older heard, that Levi and Darrin were just waiting for Carlos to make the first move, so there must be a good possibility that there's some truth to what you heard.

Sure is good to "hear", that someone else is also "hearing things", because I am deef in my left ear, and sometimes I "hear" only half of what other people "hear". So, if what we "hear" is true n' that Ol' Geezer gits some first hand schoolin from "the man" --- well, things are gonna look perty dismal fer the rest a us in the Senior Masters next season --- he's gonna kick are butts every which way, but loose !!!

He still ain't chimed in yet on this --- hope he didn't have an accident on his way over to the factory --- that is if he went there --- course this time a the year he usually falls victim to the flu er somethin n' is perty quiet until he recovers.

Well, I just don't know. He's was pretty up on his Martin Scepter V. Perhaps he is having reservations?

Wait for it...

Elkhunter
11-08-2013, 10:20 PM
HARK !!! --- He is still at least "wiggling" !!! AND had enough energy left to type "wait for it" --- he must have shot himself out at the factory testing their bows --- or he has been bed-ridden with the "Indiana Crud", and managed at least to open up his laptop to let us know he didn't cash in his chips --- WHEW, oh what a relief it is !!!

C.Roberts

Guess maybe the major changes that have been taking place within the Martin Company could be enough to cause one a lot of concern, especially those die hard Martin shooters. But now that things are looking better for Martin, most of the ones who were really going through a state of depression are recovering quite well, and at least some have returned to their normal self. See even Carlosii can now utter a few words, so things are now looking up for Martin as well as all of us who were missing Carlos on the thread.

Elkhunter

I agree Clawed --- I think what might be going on here is, that Carlossi can't say anything until the company issues a press release about his signing on. For all of us now it is a "waiting game" --- we just have to "stay tuned" for further words of wisdom from the Carlosmeister !!!

It may be more than you can handle.....

It may be more than you can handle.....
My curiosity is something that I simply can't control. Simply causes me to loose sleep, don't eat right, all kind of crazy thoughts running through my mind, resulting severe migraine headaches, not to mention that I lose my ability to focus or concentrate on aiming when practicing. The suspense has my 60 yard groups as large as a baseball, so how long will this continue before we will be once again hearing words of wisdom from the Carlosmiester. You can tell me. I can keep a secret.

Elkhunter

Can't you just sense the drama building here ??? Let's hear the drums ROOOOOOOOOOOOLLL !!!

SonnyThomas
11-10-2013, 01:29 PM
Just a thought. New people at the healm and a new logo.... Perhaps....could be on-goings of negotiations?
Other; If.... Age consideration... Does one go up against Morgan or Conners?

Elkhunter
11-10-2013, 08:33 PM
I dunno Sonny --- the only thing I do know is, that Carlos is really dragging his feet in letting us know what is going on. I sure hope I don't tip over before he makes his formal announcement.

carlosii
11-10-2013, 09:32 PM
Honest, there's really nothing going on. I'm getting an update together. BTW that was NOT me wearing that Elite hat.

carlosii

For Immediate Release:

Elite Archery announces that CarlosII has rejected the opportunity to shoot for them next year. Will Levi, Samantha, and Darrin follow suit and abandon Elite as well?

SonnyThomas
11-14-2013, 12:21 PM
Haha! Martin offered you more!

I thought Carlosi was going to be the "Face" of Parker? I heard they offered more than Elite.

SonnyThomas
11-14-2013, 03:38 PM
He's got 3 after him? OMG! Wonder when he'll get on Facebook, tweeter, start his own site?

Funny you should mention that, Sonny.

Elkhunter

HOLY ARROWHEAD Batman --- If Carlos wasn't good enough for Elite it sure don't pay fer me to waste my time, and apply --- they'd probly just laff at me !!!

I guess now that makes Carlos a "free agent" available to the highest bidder --- I consider myself a free agent, but thats as far as it goes --- "Free" !!!

Oh boy, I got this all figgered out now -- they just probably couldn't afford his competetiton costs he needs for Depends, Metamucil, joint flex, pain relievers, portable oxygen bottles, a hoveround, bow caddy, arrow caddy, etc were all way beyond their reach.

Now Martin, getting a fresh start, probably would be eager to meet all his demands, and necessities --- just makes more sense.

I spose now we all gotta sit back n' wait to see "who he wants to snap up" --- well, he got 2 months to decide before it really counts at Newberry. There could be a remote possibility here, that he could sign up with TWO different companies to shoot one companies bow on Saturday, and the otha companies bow on Sunday --- then a course, that would require two different dress reharsals, and if he gotta hit the podium on Sunday afternoon he could just wear one companies pants, and the other companies shirt with a cap that covers both.

See, everythings startin ta come tagether now !!!

Elkie, you're sure on a role there. Better watch that blood pressure, wouldn't want to cause any damage to that overly active imagination you have there. You will surely need it when the Carlosmiester takes a notion to respond.

SonnyThomas
11-17-2013, 01:14 PM
Well, I don't care who Carlos signs up with. I have to stick with my billfold for my sponsor :(

Elkhunter
11-17-2013, 01:34 PM
I think the bottom line here Sonny is, that since Levi went to Elite, that now Carlos is the newest shooter of interest. The "Carlos Nation" is all sittin on pins and needles, and hopefully he will make his decision before everyone bleeds to death from alla the acupunkture, which inturn would make for a lotta 'open slots" in the Senior Masters Class. SOOOOO, here's a sitiation that should put more immediate interest, and create action for alla them "youngins" to cough up with their money now ta reserve their shooter spot for the class --- you know the old saying "the early bird gets the worm".

C.Roberts
11-17-2013, 03:29 PM
Just finished negotiations for 2014 with my three main sponsors consisting of Me, Myself and I, and will continue to try and do my best for them. They have not only been very good about providing me with all of my equipment, but they also take care of all of my travel expenses, including food and lodging. Now how about that for sponsors? Like Sonny says, I'll have to really be aware of my spending, for my sponsors are constantly watching my billfold.

Elkhunter
11-17-2013, 06:32 PM
I done made a major shirt change myself for 2014 --- went from: XL to: 2X to begin with, and'll be flying different colors as well. I now have a choice of gray, white, or maroon --- I might be like Carlos, and just "mix n' match" em. Kinda growed allergic to orange -----Hmmm, let's see now, gray is Elite, maroon has been Bowtech, and white is ??? --- HA! --- white is the "mystery company". OH OH, what's in store for the "Elkie Nation" ??? !!! Could white be "independant" ??? So far its been the industries best kept secret. The lids been pretty well capped tight on behind the scenes negotions. Maybe "The Great Carlos" is sandbagging on his'ns decision til he see what direction the Elkmeister goes --- this story is definetly gonna need a Page 5, and were only on 3 now.

C.Roberts
11-17-2013, 08:49 PM
So the Elkmiester is making major changes to his attire, and if he's breaking out his (Sunday go to meeting white shirt) it does look like he will be asking for a little devine help from on high. Guess Ole Carlos has really got the man worried.
Dog gone Elkie, just take a few more lessons from Valerie. Seems like that really worked at the Classic, and got you on the podium.

SonnyThomas
11-17-2013, 11:18 PM
Elk, ya gotta mix the shirt colors. Like Hoyt, red and white. Martin, green and white. Mathews, gold and brown. Thomas, blue (jeans) and red (ASA collared shirt).....er..a...white if I wear socks and wear them bermuudie things...course, still be white if wore the bermuudie things.

C.Roberts
11-18-2013, 12:05 AM
Some of us redneck, hillbilly, mountain men have our everyday work white socks, and also our Sunday dress white socks without the holes.

Elkhunter
11-18-2013, 10:45 AM
I gots a quit a sortment a sox in my drawer, but I always save the holey ones fer Sunday, cause thats race day n' I keep prayin every target that I hit it. I think Sonnys right a guy should really wear a mix a colors, that way he don't hafta make like a camilian n' change colors from Saturday ta Sunday

I got in on a big closeout at Walmart n' got a whole bunch a 2X light, breathable, short sleeved polo shirts, that were marked down from $17.97 to: $7 ea, so I snapped up a hole herd of em.

Jeepers, where's Carlos hiding ??? --- He musta been brushin his teeth a few days ago n' went "down the drain with the pepsodent" --- or maybe got "strepped finger" n' can't type fer a couple a weeks. One thing fer sure were typin are way closer ta Newberry --- oooooh, these archery withrawals are terrable.

Well, it's time fer me ta take my 300yd walk down ta my deer stand.

SonnyThomas
11-18-2013, 01:36 PM
Elk, I done put down a deer, small rack 11 point, but 250 pounds of him. So I ain't all excited to go fill my doe tag. I like to have some snow on...like hunting in the snow once in a while.

Yeah, Carlos all silent is...weird. Maybe contract do negoiations and offers has him pondering which way to leap. Might be which company offers the best hover around dohinky thing. Heard them things gots knobby tires and go like a ATV. Probably wanting one them quad speaker steerio radio too. Then again, he may be waitng for page 5 to start...

Elkhunter
11-18-2013, 02:50 PM
SNOW ??? The only snow we got hear in suthern Georgia is on top a ma head --- ooops, I'm bald !!!

I filt 1 a my 10 doe tags already, and got 2 buck tags left --- things still ain't cranked up down here yet fer the rut, and I got til the middle a January sometime ta git some more anyway.

carlosii
11-18-2013, 03:09 PM
Elkie and all you other folks honkin' at me, i would point out that i am on every page of this wild-eyed, speculative, no-end-in-sight thread.
as for filling tags, well, i won't relate my experience so as to cause depression amongst the natives.

i must add that i have added another shooter shirt to my wardrobe and expect to be the envy of Geezerdom come January at the Geezerfest.

C.Roberts

Don't think the rules permit people over 70 years old, to wear those muscle shirts with the extra long arm pit opening, sometimes called wife beater shirts.

Elkhunter
11-18-2013, 05:41 PM
Well, look who woke up from a hibernation nap --- the ol' bear Carlos, snappin his teeth, as usual. Now he throws us another bone about a new shooter shirt, but no description as to color.

Clawed those "mussel shirts" are for snorkelin --- I think y'all got the rules goofed up agin --- their outlawed ta wear UNDER 70 !!!

I think we got this thred wore out already --- It's been confirmed that Carlos didn't foller Levi ta Elite --- lets try n' figger out some uther subject ta pick on fer awhile, as a filler fer the up n' comin 3rd Annual Geezerfest Thread

too early to start all that geezerfest chatter...i'll be wore out before Christmas and bored to tears. but that's just my humble opinion.

besides, Elkie, i thought you wanted to go for five.

Huh! Elkie can ramble on for five pages and still not say anything.

Ouch! just remember, Clawed, he couldn't have done it without us.

come to think of it...i've never asked him about it, so i guess it is possible he was a politician in a previous life.

carlosii
11-19-2013, 10:39 AM
anybody else decide not to step on Mike's threads about the targets?

and another thing...what's up with the clock on this forum? i just posted and it said it was done at 11:37 a.m. and its only 6:37 a.m.

can't depend on anything these days...except your Depends.

SonnyThomas
11-19-2013, 02:05 PM

Elkhunter
11-19-2013, 04:46 PM
Ah Huh !!! --- I knew I could sucker use gize inta a 5-pager --- LOL !!! Well, the time is ripe for "the rest a the story",since Carlos has been bizzy dodgin bullets on here lately --- I'll have y'all know "Inspector Elkie" has finally got the Carlos' new shooter shirt case cracked --- Yup, his new shooter shirt he's been a braggin bout is none other than one a the new Martin Shooter shirts with their brand spankin NEW LOGO. I sore it maself over on AT, that the new owners came up with a new logo design, and Ol' Carlos has done seen to it that he got one a em. I really hated to let the cat otta the bag, but just felt that all Geezers should be aware of the carrot he's been a danglin in front a us here a late.

And no, I ain't never been one a them politician thangs, nor could I ever be, or ever wanna be. The only wannabe I wanna be is a Classic Champion n' 2014 is gonna be "The Year" !!! I gotta feelin the ASA might have one a them perty silver, er gold special buckles fer a prize n' I wanna be the first'n ta git one.

And Clawed, my favorite ol' timie song was always "Ramblin' Rose" --- oer the fields he goes !!!

SonnyThomas
11-20-2013, 01:43 PM
Doing some going over is case there's important stuff I missed.

Why would some one step on Mike's post of them targets? Any of them 3D critters in front of me are in serious danger...sooner or later...

As for the clock, time, Mike might be on CT day light savings time in Hawaii.

What are Depends?

If Carlos gots contracted with Martin...What girl is Martin gettin' to even things out?

Sorry, Elk, I sort lean to Pasty Cline and anything she sung. Played her songs all the time when wrenching motorcyles in my younger years.

Eyin' them Special belt buckles? You wantin' a sponsor like Carlos? Or thinking of turning Pro?

SONNNNY --- Y'all mean ta tell me you don't know what "Depends" are ??? C-Mon Man !!! Ain't ya never heared a senior citizen "leaks" ???

Yeah, I thought we had a Geezermans agreement hear last year not ta hijack Mikes threads no more, cause their all serious, edjicational, and infermation ones.

Don't need a sponsor ta win a special buckle if'n there is gonna be one --- As for a bow, I'm kinda biased tordes independency next year.

A NEW "Martin Gurl" ??? I know one thing fer sure it ain't gonna be my wife she shoots a Bowtech Equalizer n' y'all couldn't pry it otta her hands with a crowbar.

Blue? Pill? Since when they'd make them funny cigarettes in pill form? And why blue? Preservatives do that?
