hey all; I haven't noticed any postings of guys who either own archery shops or sell products pertaining to archery ( custom this or that ) so I was wondering if we couldn't get a sticky of those on the forum that can help us with our archery needs. If you know a person or place you have done business with and would recommend their work to others put what you had done and contact info. Let's see where this goes. What's your opinion on doing something like this?

I am a small Martin/Rytera dealer in north Georgia.

Cool, that's what I'm talking about. How many people on here know that you are a martin dealer? If you were in a sticky on the top of the tech forum page you may help someone on here and perhaps yourself as well. I'm not trying to step on anyones toes here with what I am proposing but I believe this could help the martin forum site and the people who come here looking for help for their martin gear.

I have a small shop in Ohio, also build custom strings. Been involved in this business in one way or the other since about 95.

People who come to this site should have access to this info. :):)

Yep. My father and I had a shop in south GA for 10 years starting in '85. We picked up Martin in '88. I have been shooting them for 23 years now. I have been on the pro staff for 6 years now. I opened my small home-based shop this year as there was no Martin support or promotion in this area.
