Fact is, almost all of us are Mr. Hamm's legacy to some degree. Best way we can honor that legacy is for each of us to do as he did...teach others.

I am personally challenging everyone in this community to seek out someone and walk them all the way through to a fully functioning bow and arrows. Take nothing in return, asking them only to pass along what they learn from you. That's as fitting a tribute to the great Jim Hamm as there is!

As we have done in the Past so shall we continue to do...
Most of what I know about making bows is thanks to Jim Hamm's books. I wish that I could have thanked him personally.
I always would credit and recommend his books to people that wanted to get started.

JW,
I'll drink to that!  Pat it forward and teach a new person everything you know, even if you are a beginner.  Pass it on!  Raise a a glass to Jim Hamm!

Life is far too serious to be taken that way!

Reed, your dad was special.  When TBB4 came out he sent me an autographed copy even though I ever asked for one.

Rest assured he was much respected and loved.

I pray your family be granted peace and strength.

George
