Vote for my wife........

Hey will you guys vote for my wife in the SWFA photo contest? The name to vote for is me Troy Rhoades, but it is all her and her rifle.

If you get a cookie error they say to try 2-3 times or refresh the page and it should work....

I guess if you win the $20K, then you can get her a shooting mat or a decent set of field clothes.

February 2, 2005, 11:51 AM
Done. :what: :D

February 2, 2005, 11:54 AM

Troy, I'd be delighted to. I'll try again later. The error message I got first wasAn application error has occured while processing your request. An automatic notification has been sent to our support team and we expect that any problems will be resolved shortly. {etc}with the site's logo. When I tried the third or fourth time, I got a generic box with the message:Error: the server is disabled.Slashdotted? Anyway, I'll try again after a while.

10 Ring Tao It didn't work for me until I went to the list of all the finalists first, clicked on troy, and then voted.

Same here. Just click on View Finalists in the left hand navigation pane and vote from there.

February 2, 2005, 12:10 PM
You got my vote.
I Roger what TechBrute said about the shooting mat but IMHO her field clothes are just right! :)
Good Luck

It worked this time: went to the main page at and followed 10 Ring Tao's "View Finalists" route.

February 2, 2005, 12:20 PM
I can't even get to the site now. Did we kill it? :D

February 2, 2005, 12:20 PM
The whole site seems to have bombed this time. Was getting errors, then tried to go to the List. No dice for now. I'll try again later. You'd think that if they're going to have a $20k giveaway they'd be able to afford better hosting. ;)

Please pass my compliments to your purdy wife. If you didn't ask for the vote, I would have voted for that family photo (Rhodes? - mother and two daughters and everyone bearing arms).

February 2, 2005, 10:47 PM
She's got my vote. Nice rifle too !

February 2, 2005, 10:53 PM

February 3, 2005, 01:40 AM
Not to be ornery but I liked this guys description of how his girlfriend made him a calendar of her posing with all his guns, that got my vote ;)

February 3, 2005, 04:30 AM
Psssniper, I saw that one too. I wonder why a woman with nice pretty blonde hair like that would dye her roots black?

She can't hold a candle to TroyR's wife.
I'll take style over cheap cheesecake any day.

The other Blonde who used to be an NFL Cheerleader looked better than the "calandar" girl, but the photo of her shooting looked fake.

Troy's wife actually looks like she can hit a target.

February 3, 2005, 06:40 AM
You're a lucky man. You already have a winner. She got my vote. Nice rifle and scope btw. So, I guess you have 2 winners. :)

February 3, 2005, 09:49 AM
Got my vote.

February 3, 2005, 06:04 PM
WOW! Absolutely beautiful! Long, lean, magnificent! Just look at the action on this! How do you ever stop holding that?!?!

Your wife is kinda cute, too.

I voted, but the cookie monster and I had quite a battle!

February 3, 2005, 07:57 PM
