IV. The Texas Worlds exist
as a Synergistic (maybe parasitic, ha) attachment to the John Jensen National Fish Decoy Competition to be held in Perham,
MN, April 4, 5 and 6, 2003. Entries will be accepted until April 5 when the show judging opens.
The contest and the
prizes are real. All Judges decisions will be final. The tongue in cheek nature of this event allows us to state that there
will be no whining, yelling or getting even. In no way are John Jensen, Jensen Promotions, Rod Osvold or the good people of
Minnesota responsible for anything that goes wrong.
V. Mail ins are encouraged. Send them to Bryan Tindall, 1700 Blufftop
Cr. Round Rock, TX 78681.
Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include return postage if you don't
wish to donate them to the collection.
See y'all there! Bryan
