2021 Silent Auction
« on: September 02, 2021, 11:37:47 AM »
Hello everyone  I hope everyone’s grow out pens are full of exceptional Ameraucana. I just want to let everyone know as a member on the National show committee I am planning on another silent auction. We have been blessed by the generosity of members in the previous years and have had great success. So if anyone is attending the National Meet in Lebanon and would like to donate any extra breeding quality Ameraucana just let me know. Not only is it a good way of getting quality Ameraucana into new breeders hands but it also is a great draw to our club table. My contact info is slicktree@hotmail.com or (419) 410-2613 is my phone number and preferred method of contact since I only check e mails once a week. Thank you for reading this post and I will try to give updates on this topic as they come in

I will donate a threesome of Black Bantam pullets  that are based on sex linked gold.   I will have no extra cockerels this year.

For the last several years we've had a silent auction at our Ameraucana National Meets.  Each time it has been put on by an Alliance member or more and recent years by the National Meet Committee as individuals, but not the club.  This way we avoid involving our board of directors and can use the auction funds as the committee decides.  Generally we pay for a big "thank you" ad in the Poultry Press and have helped cover the costs of our National Meet meal on Saturday evening, when the $10/person fee wasn't enough.  After whatever the committee designates the money gets used for, the remainder gets donated to our treasury.  I just want to make sure no one assumes all the proceeds necessarily go into our treasury, which is in really great shape!
   
So that we don't have a conflict with the silent auction put on by the show club that is hosting our national meets we restrict our auction to Ameraucana chickens and related items. 

I have grouped some old Ameraucana club handbooks & patches, along with a copy of the Backyard Poultry magazine that featured my article on Ameraucanas and a couple other things to donate as one item for the auction.  There may be little interest in these, but I have no need to hold on to them and maybe someone will want to add them to their collection.

Thank you Daniel Cook for your generous donation of LF black Ameraucana. For those that don’t know him he is a youth exhibitor that did well at our national meet last year in Birch run.

Would there be any interest in Ameraucana art for the silent auction?  No worries if there’s not, but I’m happy to donate if there is. 😊

I imagine so, nice work. We have had ceramic art, critter traps and brooder heaters, books donated in the past that were well received.
