Title: Thanks PA and Ed Ingold
Post by: Marc St Louis on July 20, 2008, 10:54:05 am
Following the recent stream of discontent surrounding certain articles in the Primitive Archer magazine I thought I would write this little thank you note to thank Ed for all the work he does to make this magazine happen. 

I have written many articles for this magazine and therefore I know how hard it can be to get thoughts and words organised in a cognisant way.  I can therefore imagine the difficulty and admire the major organising and editing skills required to get this magazine out for all you guys to read. 

Now there are some people out there that just don't seem to be able to appreciate the difficult job Ed has and are very vocal in their displeasure.  Instead of trying to put down this magazine those people should take a hand in making it better.  This is not done by trying to tear the magazine down but by writting some good stories of their own.  This magazine is unique but because of its uniqueness and much smaller interest group it makes it much harder to make a living at and everybody needs to make a living.  Some people just don't seem to be able to understand that concept, or maybe they just don't care.  To these people all I can say is be a part of the solution and not another problem.

In any case, thanks Ed and regardless of what a minor few may say you are doing a great job.

P.S. You can respond to this post even if you disagree but if you do so keep it civil and respectfull or else I will remove your posts and lock it down.

Well put Marc, instead of complaining about the magazine, make it better by contributing your knowledge and experience with the rest of us.
As I said in the other thread their are article in PA that don't interest me so I either skim them or just don't read them. I would love to see more
articles on flintknapping, harvesting plants and processing the fibers for cordage, weaving baskets, birch bark uses and so on. I for one will continue my
subscription to PA. Thanks Ed and Sarah for your hard work :)

Thanks Dana and you are right in adding Sarah to this, something I should have done as well. 

Thanks Sarah

Well said Marc...and others. I subscribed to PA after seeing an ad in Traditional Bowhunter, way before PA Magazine came out. I immediately sent in a subscription. I knew it was what I was looking for and I have never been disappointed. There are times I voiced my opinion about something I wasn't happy with, but hopefully I helped remedy the problem or at least I accepted it as the way it is...like it or lump it...and I like it! 8)
   To Ed, Munroe, Sarah and Marie, thanks guys. You are the best!!! you have kept our magazine and web site going with lots of excellent info to help support our addiction, and we appreciate ya'll for it!  8)      Pat

I totally understand and appreciate where your coming from Marc. And your right.

Well I'm done arm-chair quarterbacking on my end. This magazine has been a great asset from the very start of my bowyering journey.

You're either part of the solution, part of the problem, or part of the scenery. If you so choose, advocate for change in a positive and constructive manner. Enjoy the articles that interest you, skim the rest. Everyone has something to contribute.

Right on, Marc! Being editor is like being President...you just can't please everyone. There always seems to be a good balance of different material, and I enjoy all of it... ;D

June / July was my first issue and I thought it was great.  The article on the buffalo horn plains bow was worth the price of admission alone!  We don't have many sources for our hobby (let's face it, we're weird primotechnologists in a modern world - most people just don't get us lol :)) so it's great to have a wealth of information in the website and magazine.  So thanks to everyone involved in running the show and keep up the good work!

Marc,
I agree with you. Ed is doing a great job and and I'm sure he's working hard. This is a very fine magazine. You contributors consistantly do a fabulous job. Each issue is eagerly awaited and read. I agree, anyone who can do better should start submitting!

     I know of a couple of mags no longer around, and I for one am very thankful for your tenacity. Besides a little bit of controversy keeps us on our toes. I have idea what Marc was talking about, I just wanted to say "Thank You" to everyone who works this mag.

Yep, a big "Thank you!" to everyone involved in putting PA together.  I read every issue cover to cover and thoroughly enjoy each article.  I can't pretend to understand the amount of work that goes into layout, writing and proofreading,  but please know you're appreciated.

I would like to thank all involved with this magazine.  I have been involved in archery for over 50 years.  My dad owned an archery shop in Michigan, shot for Bear Archery and was on Bears advisory staff for 3 years. It was nothing to us kids to have Fred call and ask for our dad.  With that being written, I have been around a bow and arrow a long time and have seen just about everything AND I would like you folks to know that this is the best Archery magazine I have ever seen and read.  Thanks and keep up the great work.

I think itís very fitting revive this thread Brian. I never actually noticed it before.

I would like to thank Ed to. I never really dreamed that I would ever write a magazine article. Iím sure my English teacher never dreamed I would either. I really enjoyed this web site. It has given me so much. Introduced me to so many really special people. Provided many, many hours of entertainment.

It also helped kindle a passion I never even realized I had. The first article I wrote almost wrote itself. It just wanted me to tell it. I sent it to Ed in a email. Iím lousy on a computer. Ed emailed me back and said he liked my article. He made everything very easy to finish submitting the pictures and paperwork.

I think I submitted seven articles to Ed. I will miss him.

I have submitted at least one to Marie to. She made it easy to. I have had several very interesting conversations with her and meet her in person at Marshall Michigan meet in 2019. It was really nice to meet her. I wish her luck with the magazine.

I agree completely with what Marc said so many years ago. This is a special place and a special magazine. If you have a idea for a article please let it tell itself. Share it with us all. Submit it to Marie. Help make this magazine great again. If it is lacking what you are looking for, maybe you can provide it with it.

Once again a very sincere Thank You Ed
