  The "official" 2018 Dog Shelter Campaign

Post by Ron May »

(I can't see a way to post a new separate topic in the forum for 2018 so I will "hijack" the 2017 thread at least for now.)

The dog shelter campaign is now open for submissions.
The drawing methods will be posted by Robby in another thread.
Donations should be completed by the first of September and results of the drawing will be held on the Day of the Meet and Greet in Germany.

For the donations here's where you can post photos and a description of the item you are donating to the 2018 WB Dog Shelter Campaign.

Good clear photos in natural light with a overall description of the item.

You can then use the link to this page to post with your announcement to what ever social website you want to post it to so those interested can see what the prizes are.

If anyone has any questions, suggestions, or ideas please PM me so as not to clutter up this thread with anything other than donations, photos and the description.

Do not reply to this thread with anything but donation photos and the description of the item being donated. Anything else will be deleted so that only donations show up here.

The Paypal address from now on and forever is: whipbasicsdogshelter@gmail.com. When you donate money, it will be to this address. Should I die or something sucky like that, Robby and Robert will both have the information to access the account. All donations within the raffle or outside donations will go to this account.
Due to rising costs, dirty deeds are no longer done dirt cheap.

A big „Thank you!“ to Georg, Jyri and Ethan for their donations for the dog shelter lottery 2018. That makes three whips/donations.
Three is better than two, sure. Or one. Or...

Time to speed up things, folks!

At the WB Meet & Greet 2018 we will have the drawing of the prices. And it would be really cool to have more prices :)

Remember: It is not about perfection. When you are a beginner - donate a beginners whip. When you are a professional - donate a professional whip. And it is not about to expect to win the best, most professional whip. It is about to be a part of the annual dog shelter donation campaign.


What are you waiting for, hm?

Sorry Robby, I guess I posted in the wrong place. I posted in another thread a few days ago.

Here is my offering for the 2018 Dog Shelter auction: a bullwhip made by the Scotsman Paul Carpenter (author of The Paracord Bullwhip, 2014). It has a 6ft thong, plus an 11 inch handle made from Burr Elm and 28 inch fall and cracker.

Here is Paul's note on the construction: Twisted leather core with a short length of steel pin bolstered with artificial sinew placed into wooden handle with each inlay being braided on in a step fashion. 1st overlay of 8 strands and bolster 3/4 of length with artificial sinew, 2nd overlay of 12 strands bolstered again with sinew, finished with a final inlay of 16 strands. Transition knot is a 12 bight pineapple. Paracord fall and dacron cracker.

I bought this whip on eBay four or five years ago - just before his book came out, I think. I was attracted by the beautifully turned wooden handle. However, I find the thong disappointingly light-weight. Whoever wins this might want to try waxing the thong to add some weight - or even chop it off, and re-use the handsome handle for a new whip.

Here is the eBay photo - better than any I've taken. This Dog Shelter prize does not include the bag, but will include the belt holder - if I can find it!

With school this year I am not able to make what I would like for this very deserving project, so I offer up my gently used personal whip.

6' 16 plait Amper Style Lite: this is #005, and the only light version of this whip I have ever made (and likely ever will). It is black with a single accent strand of burgundy, with two plaited bellies. It has a Twisted English Eye and a 12 1/2" handshaped purpleheart handle.
Will come with two loaded twisted taper falls.

It is, as I stated, gently used.
These are the photos from when it was first made:

Here, you can see my husband, Lonnie, snuffing out candles with it.

This is my same one from last year that didn't get claimed before the deadline- I had originally hoped to offer up a second, but I'm too far behind to commit to that. This is a 7 foot Academy bullwhip with a beautiful handle by Roy :)

The cup hole isn't quite straight unfortunately(if anyone has any tips for keeping the hole straight I would greatly appreciate it!) and the ash I used for the handle is has a rather rough finish since it wasn't completely dry. Otherwise the thong itself rolls out smoothly and accurately.

I hope I'm not too late.

I'd like to offer a whip also.
I did the best I could, but it does not compare to any whip already posted here. That being said, I did put my love in it :) so you'll be getting that.
I'll post the pics tomorrow, cause it's dark outside and I only just finished it.

It's a black and yellow 7ft bullwhip with a 10" handle.
It's made with two bellys and an overlay.
The handle core's made up of a 6mm steel bar.

The overlay is two toned and the handle is done with a egyptian eye pattern.

It comes with a few dyneema/twine cord hybride crackers.

But pics say more than words, so I'll be posting them tomorrow.

If I'm too late, then notify me and delete this post. Thanks.

I did not get a chance to build a whip, but I have a black “Tank” Bullwhip from Keanu at 808 Whip Co. that I am donating. I will get specs and pics when we get home.
