(Background to this post....my client Tom and my client Bill are both going fishing. Bill is in MN as I type. Tom leaves for Canada next week. Tom suggested a friendly competition. Here is a copy of the letter I sent to each of them)
Hey Guys -
Ok, here's the deal.
suggested this idea and I think it's a great one. Bill, I'm sure you'd

your first EVER Muskie (moment of silence) you won't see this until you
finish your vacay. Luckily, I called and left you a message on your
Tom is leaving on vacay next week to also catch his first EVER Muskie (another moment of silence).
OK, boys, who's gonna be the winner-take-all of the epic challenge??
Let's see which one of you can :
* Catch their first Muskie (or however the heck you spell it)
* Catch the most Muskie's
* Catch the most fish over all
* Catch the largest fish
* Who makes the best hush puppies ( I get to be the judge of this one!!)
I'll need pictures as proof, so be forewarned. And yeah, freeze-dried hush puppies delivered to me would be sweet :-)
What will the Winner get?
Bragging rights...a picture of the winner and their prize-winning fish
proudly displayed at my desk...my everlasting gratitude at getting
killer hush puppies...and a $25 gift certificate to one of the
following - Starbucks, Panera, Best Buy, or Orvis (this is SO a trick
OK boys....bring it on home.
Ready, set, fish!
