A Silent Auction to benefit the University Team going to the World University Champs will start with on line bidding and end at the US Classic Champs on November 11. If you would like to donate an item to the auction you should start by sending me a picture wornerkohn at gmail so I can post it on line. Then bring the item to the meet!
If you aren't attending but still want to donate an item just send the picture, we'll work out how it's going to get to the person who bids on it.

not a very silent silent auction. eh?
It is still silent, no one talking, just writing, like in real auctions ;) And no one is yelling it out digitally. And opening the thread is like strolling past the table of the things you are interested in..... Seeing the thread and deciding to open and read it is like seeing someone stroll by your item of interest and then writing something on the paper.... Have been at PTA auctions where there were groups of people keeping an eye on things for friends, watching some thinks like (silent) hawks.....
Updated bidding list:
#6 - $3
#9 - $3
#10 - $36
#11 - 10
#15 - 60
#17 - $50
#23 - $50
Don't be shy about bidding...either continue on this thread or email me wornerkohn at gmail.
On site bidding opens Friday evening at the Hampton (event hotel) then continues at the dinner on Saturday. There may be other opportunities earlier Sat.
Auction closes following the speaker on Sat.
On line bidding will continue Sat. evening if I have wi-fi access.
#36 Garmin 220 watch, with usb cable and HR strap. Has a couple small scratches on face, but otherwise fine.
Ok, I'll bid $40 for #36 if a Coloradan can pick it up, or someone can mail it. I'll have to mail a check or something.

If by 6pm you mean 6pm PST :) ...

dnp will need to identify him/her-self post haste, if the free entry is to be used for Winter Pig: OINK!.
Please reply to FlyingPigRegistrar@gmail.com
Registration instructions will then be provided.
email sent to Guy, donation sent via paypal.
I received a belated donation (miscommunication problem) that I didn't think we should pass up so I have reopened the bidding. Check it out to see what the new item is...you're going to want to bid!
Silent Auction - Surprise Donation!
ps I left a few of the other items on the site just in case.
I note the entry fee for the ski-O relay is per team. Is the silent auction for the individual events only or is one relay team entry included as well?
Sure, the bid will cover the relay team entry. But your partner will have to pay for their own World Masters entry.
$75 for the Craftsbury Ski-O entry
when does the bidding end?
Whoa! A real bidding war...you have until midnight...it will go to the last bid before the clock strikes 12.
Thanks to everyone who contributed!
