Having trouble getting the server to spawn the address so here is the address. We do need to decide how to go about auctioning these cars off. More yet to be posted but I need to add a sub page and need to run into the city for a bit to have lunch with Beth. Any ideas. I checked into Fleabay and to do a charity auction they will refund the selling cost but Mission fish takes 7% to pass the money along.. Or we can have a live auction in the chat window? Or we can just take email sealed bids and winner gets the auction. If we choose option 2 I will need someone to help auction as I would like a chance to bid also, and option 3 a third party who will also recieve the bids so no question as too who won. Have fun guys I have added a few teasers to this post.....hehehehe

Coach, great work, brainstorming here:

I can't vote for a single chat session idea - I know of several upcoming Wednesdays when I can't be there, same would be true of any other time I guess. Then there are time zone differences to contend with too, especially if someone from Yur-rup or downunder wanted to bid. I guess it could be done over several chat times, with winning bids posted in between? Gives everyone a chance to see where things are and run up the donation? Same with sealed bids - round one leaders posted, chance to go higher in round 2? Maybe three rounds? Disadvantage to me of one round of sealed bids is maybe one item sells cheap because people are tending to bid high on the most popular. Idea is to maximize donation, right?

7% seems like a high fee for handling charitable donations, especially when most of us could walk into an AHA office for free and hand them a check.

Just thinking....

Ok I put a lot of thought into this, and here goes.. Bidding will begin tonight at 00:00 EST
Email your Bids to BOTH myself and Jeff (Splitposter). Auction ends next Saturday at High Noon EST. I will post the High Bid as they come in.. Also does anyone have a objection if Jeff and I bid? I am willing to send anyone what my maxes will be right now to keep things honest. Have fun with this and remeber its for a good cause, so even if you do not win, consider donating to your local charity anyways.


Thanks Let the good times roll....

Dave

just got my income tax return back

open up your wallets boyz cause I'm a bidding for a good cause, my heart stopped beating for up to 22 minutes back in 1991, I know all about heart defects and the crazy stuff that can happen. (avoid REAPRO at all costs,(it's farmed from mice) as it caused me to code blue twice in 12 hours) ( just gotta explain to the wi-fee why I need more than one of each car.) Just so you understand wi-fees position, car count at approx. 520 afx/x-traction cars and about 100 T-jets and crazy husband still buying :wave: :thumbsup: )
