    Here's Chris and his Dorado and me with my Marlin. Chris also caught a Marlin but I didn't get a shot of it before it was put back. I think that Gerry and Sean may have gotten it though. Very nice Dorado though!!

    Chris and Gerry's dorados tasted quite nice that night as well. We took them to the hotel and they cooked up quite a bit of it for us. They kept the other 20 lbs or so.

    OK now I get it, The past president of the AOLP, three curent high ranking officials with the association, Treasurer (who is an employee of Kichler) Vice president of AOLP and at least 1 bd director who also happens to be a top distributor for Kichler on an all expense paid trip by Kichler to Cabo San Lucas . Did I miss anyone? Now I know why Joey D is LMAO.:laugh: I think I just may join him in LMAO :laugh:

    Think about it.
    I'm just sayin'.....................

    Mike, you are not the only one looking at this and questioning it. The optics of this situation are somewhat interesting. I am not suggesting that it is a planned coup of the AOLP, or anything of the sort, but those who are not in the "kichler kamp" so to speak are looking, wondering, and shaking their heads just a bit.

    James, you do have to be concerned where the power lies with this organization and question how this might influence bd. voting, policies and general direction when you see something like this. At the very least it's a public relations fiasco and it doesn't look kosher. I was one of the original 30 or so original founding members of the shell of what this organization has become. The by laws were written by the late Bill Locklin and it was called LVLIA. The mission statement clearly read that the intent was for this to be a CONTRACTORS association for the primary benefit of contractors. I highly doubt current motives when manufacturer members are consulted and not the contractor membership everytime a major decision is made.


    To clarify- The past president of the AOLP was not in attendence which is irrelevant anyway as he is not a current sitting bd member.

    Do you guys know what the non kichler employees spent a year to get on that trip? Mike G I know you sell your own product, but for anyone else log onto your Kichler account........ I know chris is on top 5 list.

    Everyone is always so quick to make judgements.

    We are not making any judgements S&MLL... we full well understand how the Kichler points system works for contractors. What MG and I are commenting on is how the AOLP Board of Directors & Executive appears to be "stacked" with Kichler representatives.
