2017 Silent Auction - Off-Site Bidding!

Last year at the 2016 ABC National, we tried something new. Along with our items for the Silent Auction that can be bid on and picked up at the show, we decided to invite everyone that couldn't be at the National to participate in the Silent Auction.

Many of our breeders came forward and offered some great items, for Spring 2018 delivery, to be bid on and it was a huge success! So, we decided to offer it again this year.

We've just started rounding up donations from folks, but here is what we have so far:

1. 10 Black LF Ameraucana chicks, by Susan Mouw. Bid includes shipping, paid by donor. Reserve is Met

2. 12 Black LF Ameraucana eggs, by Clif Redden. Bid includes shipping, paid by donor. Reserve is Met

3. 12 Black LF Ameraucana eggs, by Clif Redden. Bid includes shipping, paid by donor. Reserve is Met

4.  1 dozen large fowl Buff eggs by Jeff & Cheryl Vance. Bid includes shipping, paid by donor. Reserve is Met

5.  1 dozen wheaten bantams eggs by Jeff & Cheryl Vance. Bid includes shipping, paid by donor. Bidding starts at $15.

6.  10 large fowl chicks-buyers choice of black, blue, splash, white and delivery March through May by priority mail, by Paul & Angela Smith. Bid includes shipping, paid by donor.  Reserve is Met

7.  1 dozen Bantam Wheaten/Blue Wheaten eggs by Peggy Taylor. Bid includes shipping, paid by donor. Bidding starts at $15.

8.  10 LF Ameraucana chicks from blue x blue breeding. Could be blue, black, and/or splash, by Susan Mouw. Bid includes shipping, paid by donor. Reserve is Met

9.  12 LF Ameraucana Eggs (Buyers choice: BBS, Buff, or White), by Kara Ferri. Bid includes shipping, paid by donor. Bidding starts at $15

Bidding will open on 10/15. if you are an ABC member and would like to donate something to the Offsite Silent Auction, email me at info@ameraucanabreedersclub.org, as soon as possible. We will take donations up to 10/15. All bids are sealed, no one knows who has the high bid or what the high bid is until the envelopes are opened at the National.

You must be a resident of the continental US for these items, or make arrangements for items to be shipped to a US address! No out of country shipping on any of these items. Shipping will begin in the Spring 2018, and the ABC will assist in coordinating the communication between the winning bidder and the donor of the items. You do not need to be a member of the ABC to bid!

You can bid as many times as you want. While onsite bidders will have up until the auction ends to enter a bid, offsite bidders must submit their bids to info@ameraucanabreedersclub.org by Friday, Oct 27th at 5PM EST. Send your bid with the following in the subject line: "Silent Auction Bid", and please include your name, street address, city/state/zip, and phone number, along with the item you are bidding on and the amount of your bid in the body of the email. NOTE: No bids will be accepted without a physical street address!

In the case of more than one bid having the same amount and being the highest bid, those bids with the highest bid on them will be folded up, put back in the envelope, and one bid will be drawn. So, for example, three people bid $50 on the same item and $50 is the highest bid on that item. Those three bids are folded up - so no one can see the names - and placed back into the envelope. Gordon Gilliam, or his appointed representative, will draw one of those bids and that becomes the winning bid.

All onsite winning bids must be completed and paid for before removing the items. All offsite winning bids will be notified by email and invoiced via Paypal the week following the National Meet.

All proceeds from this Silent Auction are used for next year's National Meet.

Glad to see the bidding has started on line.  I hope the bidding at the site goes well next week too.
