TREASURES AUCTION IS UPON US !!!
November 20th is the
date for the annual return of our semi-world famous Electronic
Treasures Auction, and election of club officers for 2016. The
elections will take a few minutes at the beginning of our meeting that
night, and then it is on to the auction. This year, Jack Eyster has
found a wonderful assortment of goodies including classic rigs and all
the super-junque that we MUST have. That, combined with all the
treasures that we bring to auction, should make this an especially
good time for all of us.
For those new to this special event, the object is
to have fun. Your auctioneer is particularly honest, scrupulous,
devil-may-care and dapper, with an uncanny ability to describe the
goods at auction with incredible accuracy, while exaggerating in such
a way as to faithfully and accurately describe the true value of the
stuff being offered (have I mentioned that I am the auctioneer? No?
Then add that the auctioneer will always give a true description of
the goods after he finishes lying about it!).
Please plan to arrive with your junque-for-auction
at 6:15 PM. As you step from the elevator, Johnnie will be at a desk
with spare auction forms, and loaner-pencils - - - just in case you
forgot to bring your completed forms. You can really speed things up
if you bring your completed forms, together with your junque – each
item must be marked with your name or call sign. You can then just
step directly into the check-in line, where Joe and Archie will check
you in – after which helpers will place your stuff in the proper place
at the front of the room, in just the right place to bring potential
buyers to a buying frenzy (possibly).
For those of you with no junque to bring, here is
your opportunity to glom-on-to some really top-notch crusty-dusty
stuff. Bids are in one-dollar (minimum) increments, but the auctioneer
will choose the amount for the "next" bid. Bidding will start at the
minimum bid you choose (on your auction form). The successful bidder
will pay you and take possession of the treasure from the front of the
room, and you will then pay the treasurer ten percent (minimum) of the
sale price. Many choose to donate the entire amount for the benefit of
the club, in which case the winning bidder simply pays the treasurer
the full amount. There will be bunches of good stuff, in price ranges
for everyone. Feel free to copy and complete the auction form below
and bring it with you. Although there will be additional forms
available on auction night, there will be no one available to help you
fill it out - - so please make every effort to complete the forms
before you come to the event.
This is a fun event - - please attend, support your club, and enjoy
