Bob personally enjoys this, as he was a Boy Scout, and now at an older age he realizes how hard it is for the leaders to get donations to help better the lives of these kids. The picture shows the winning bidder along with the Boy and Girl Scouts holding up the shooting system. In Bob and Sherrie’s mind, everyone involved is a winner. Bob and Sherrie get to help out a segment of the community they live in, while the winning bidder gets a rig he or she can talk about for years to come and then hand down to the next generation. But most of all, the kids get to do things they may never have been able to do, and that alone warms the hearts of not only Bob and Sherrie, but all involved—from the bidders willing to give up their hard-earned cash to the staff at Mernickle Holsters, who put this all together. The rig shown brought $3,000 to the local troops and has an estimated value of $6,000.
Bob and Sherrie Mernickle want to
thank all the people involved and give a special thanks to Tom
Burch and everyone that bid on this rig. If it weren’t for
everyone’s support, this would never have happened. For more
