It is with much happiness and great pride, that I write this small acceptance speech. On Monday afternoon(12/1/2014) as I was standing in my den(Man Cave) a call came through on my cell phone. I did not recognize the number, and usually when I don't know the number, I won't answer it. But on this day for what ever reason, I decided to answer the call. And man O man what a CALL it was, and I was so glad that I answered. On the other end of the line was none other that PBS President Jim Akenson. He was calling to inform me that I had made the rank of being a new PBS Regular Member. Guys I can not describe in words the feelings and emotions that overcame me at that very moment. I kept saying Praise God and kept thanking Jim for making the call. After some trial and error with my application and some patience, the CALL finally came. First off I want to thank my sponsor, Andy Lupher who took the time to talk to me, and to go over my application with instructions on what I should do. Andy certainly deserve a tip of the Ole camo cap. I also want to thank Jack Smith, Steve Osminski, all of council and all that was involved in looking over my application and then approving me for Regular Member status. I am certainly humbled by all of this, and I am determined to uphold all that the PBS stands for in it's Bylaws, Ethics, Sportsmanship and being the best Bowhunter that I can possibly be. I thank all of PBS for accepting me in the ranks of Regular Membership. This is not something I take lightly. When I told my Wife, that I was accepted, man she was just as happy as I was to get the GOOD NEWS. I will not let the PBS down. You have made me a proud man, and I thank you very very much. Last but not least, I also want to thank Wayne(Biggie)Hoffman, who really gave me the final kick in the pants to get moving on applying for Regular Membership, and it was the very kick that I needed(LOL). Thanks Biggie. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to the whole PBS Fraternity and your families.

PBS Regular Member/ Tony Sanders
