    Default Vaya con dios Martin Forums;

    Thanks for the help and camaraderie of all here. I won't try and name everybody because I'd, no doubt, leave out some. While the twin demise of a company and these forums seems inevitable, a couple thoughts strike me as comforting;

    No big deal, but since getting my Martin bow, I became intrigued with Gail Martin's 'story' a bit; studied up on him on line and came to admire the man as an innovator and an American entrepreneur. Companies come and go; that's just the way it goes, but I think Gail Martin now has an eternity to be proud of his accomplishments and the company he built, and it was still viable when he left. I don't see that all as a bad outcome. I also rather think Mr. Martin's integrity, and the integrity of his company for so many years, probably has had some influence on the decency and integrity of those on these forums; a small group but good hearted people; loyal to his products, eager to help others and quick to smile. For all that, I thank Gail Martin and all of you.... o

    Well stated Otis, couldn't agree more.

    I've been a member here for a little while, though I haven't posted much. I've pretty much just lurked around reading the different topics. I do the same on Archery Talk, too. Anyway, I have been following the Martin saga for a while now. It sure is sad to see such a company go by the wayside. I wanted so much to get another Bengal to replace my old one, but with the issues Martin was having I just couldn't. I still check the forums here regularly, but I just know I will click the bookmark one day to receive Error 404.

    Well at least they are still sending out items.
    I had a set of cams replaced and bought some other item, they came in today to my local Martin dealer.
    I asked them if they have heard anything about the sale, they said all has been quiet.
