"I received your letter of March 24th regarding the Cape Fear Wildlife Expo.  Thanks for taking the time to do this after all the hard work you put into this year's Expo.

We had a ball this year, met a lot of great folks, and we all consider it a huge success for Mossy Oak Properties - Phillips Land Company.  And it's a blast watching those TV 3 ads with us on there!

David B. Phillips, Sr.

Dear W.C.,
Congratulations on success of the Cape Fear Wildlife Expo!

On behalf of all QDMA branches participating this weekend I would like to extend our sincere appreciation to you and your team in providing a wonderful show.  We look forward to serving your youth initiatives again next year, and would be pleased to participate in planning as needed.

Very best wishes,

Judy Gardner
President, North Carolina State Chapter QDMA
