The villagers are pleased. \"We told you\" they say, \"we make good beer.\"

Send me a note with the info and once we get rid of this list we can put it up. We are trying to have all the items above auctioned and picked up before Christmas, some should be listed tomorrow.

Why so quickly?

Imagine a garage full of that list of items and a homeowner anxious to clean out the garage...(an no I am not talking about me)...the items are safely housed in an undisclosed location which will be disclosed to the winners of the various auctions.

We have 17 items currently up for bid and another 8 will be posted in a week or so. Bid early and often, this ain't ebay...

How do we post new items? I have a mash tun which is a 50 qt. Coleman cooler with a copper manifold and brass ball valve. I'm happy to let it go in the club auction.

Hey Walt - after we finish the current round we can put it up (or sell it to Jim).

Hey, Walt...you might also want to mention it to Jim Brewer at the Holiday party!  I think he's looking to upgrade his mash tun.

All the items are now listed in the Auction section of the forum.

The Forum clock is EST* at the moment and this is also the auction clock. If a posting comes later than the ending time, it will be considered invalid.

If you happen to be the lucky winner of an item or items, sit tight and we will determine pickup location(s) after Dec. 14.

*Everyone should be on GMT - 5, check the bottom of the page. If your page does not say GMT - 5 and match the current time, please update your profile to reflect that time.

Seems to reward the folks who can stay up to midnight.   :(

Guess I'm still on my search for a mill I can afford....

MDixon

We can certainly pick another ending time for auctions. The one night I stayed up till midnight to bid was bad news for the next day. Maybe 9pm in the future?

I think 9 or 10PM would be a good stop time.

I know I ended up with a lot of gear.  If anyone feels that I bid unfairly on an item and you were the last to bid let me know and you can have the item for my bid.

Kevin

CWK

yes, please, esp. if it ends on a work night.
