Default Welcome to our Auction Center. This is a benefit auction. ** READ FIRST **

From the archive. 5/21/08

Brethren helping Brethren


Thats why this is here today. One of our members, Smoke-in-my-i has run into some bad luck. His daughter has been hospitalized and in order to be by her side, he has not been working. Although she is coming home soon(or may be home already), he has had a 100 mile round trip to the hospital for the past several weeks, the medical bills have accumulated and she will need continued medical care for the next several months.

Heres where we come in. Let it be said up front, BILL DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THIS FORUM. HE CAN NOT SEE WHAT IS GOING ON and if anyone knows him, please keep this under wraps. In the future, once we are done, I will open it up and he can see what what transpired.

Instead of asking for donations, we are going to have an auction. All proceeds from this auction will go to Bill. Even if it just helps with one car payment, it will help him concentrate on more important things, like healing his family. Heres how it will work.

Dig stuff up.. stuff your not using, stuff you don't want, stuff you will never use.. or if your so inclined, throw some new stuff in here. Gift certificates, thermos, bbq items, etc.. Something you feel a member may be interested in.

Start a thread(using the template in red below) and that is your auction item and your donation to the auction.

Members post to that thread to bid. Either enter an auction end date, or we close it when there is no activity to that thread for 3 days. At the end of 3 days, we put up a LAST CALL. If someone bids during the LAST CALL a final 24 hour clock starts to allow for a counter bid.

Once bidding is complete, click on this link to make your payment. I will work up a few web pages to make payments to.

I will confirm with the bidder the completion of payment and the owner can ship out the product.

Of course, if you just want to make a donation that will be available too.

The proceeds will go into our paypal and it will all will be sent to Bill(Smoke in my i) to help him get back on his feet.

So please, start looking thru your stuff.. anything you want to put up for auction, take a picture of it and lets begin. Tonto and Txchutte will oversee the transactions and keep stuff flowing.

Recommended format for a new auction thread.

Auction item Description:

Starting Bid(If any):

Duration/Closing date(or no activity for 3 days):

Shipping or Pickup only:

This is tonto and txschutes idea.. Which i thought was great.

if this works, we may even leave the auction around when we are done where you guys can auction your stuff off instead of it sitting in the gasser for storage. :)

Great idea, guys and gals! For whatever reason, I just noticed this. I think leaving it up all the time is a good idea to help fund anything like this that comes up over the years ahead.

I will second or third this or whatever number it is.... I had thought about sending Phil a PM to suggest that there should be a special fund set up for emergencies to send flowers or whatever when it is needed.... this will work also and I think it would be more fun.... and will help some of us get rid of some less used stuff so we will have room to get some NEW toys....

I love it already.
