Re: KRCM (Kingston) Annual Auction - Saturday, Feb.14

A quick summary of our Auction:

Despite some atrocious weather, we had a very good turnout - about 70 Participants. Folks came from as far away as Cornwall and Morrisburg to the East, Trenton, Brighton and Belleville to the West and up Ottawa way. Kudos to you guys! I am sure it turned out to be worth the effort.

Our Zone Director, Chris Malcomnson attended, serving as wingman for MAAC President, Claude Melbourne. These guys are regulars at this, and a couple of our other KRCM events. Incidentally, this was Claude's birthday - he hardly looks a day older than ... well, perhaps we should pass on that.

The doors opened at 0900 hours, allowing lots of time for setting up, registering, gawking, etc.
As planned, the Auction commenced right at 1100 hours and went non-stop for the next 4 or more hours.

Close to 300 items were sold, with total cash flow of over $5000.

As usual, the 50/50 draw was well supported, with the winner, from Morrisburg, taking away $130 (or not, depending upon how much he spent here at the Auction!). Of course, that meant that the other half, $130, was donated to the RCAFA Club in appreciation of them letting us use the facilities.

Our Auction Team enjoys doing this; we have quite a few years of experience and an excellent spreadsheet-based system as the foundation. Aside: If your club or organization has thoughts of doing the same thing, our system is available free for the asking.

A lot of very happy people left the site around 3 p.m. or so, carrying home their treasures, big and small. Happy flying, everyone - see y'all next year!
