Evan, I believe I suggested this idea last year, but I don't recall for

One ''event" I'd like to see at VCF-East would be a live auction event.
There's often items that are either complete systems, or certain rare items
that I know I would rather see performed as an auction as opposed to just
'for sale' in the normal sales room.

I don't know if it would be too late to do that now for this year or not. I
know I have a number of items I'd rather 'auction' off to either members or
visitors to VCF-East.  The specifics of the auction would likely be left up
to the board to decide. (Lot size, percentage taken by VCF for facilitating
the auction, etc.)

I know there was times where I heard that 'someone will be selling X item'
in the consignment room, only to get over there after getting my tables
setup, etc, and see it's already been picked over like a corpse by a
buzzard.  But by setting a specific time, with a viewing of lots prior to
the auction. It gives people a chance to purchase the specific item/lot.


Normal Person: Hey, it seems that you know a lot.
Geek: To be honest, it's due to all the surfing I do.
Normal Person: So you go surfing?
Normal Person: But I don't think that has anything to do with knowing a
Geek: I think that's wrong on a fundamental level.
Normal Person: Huh? Huh? What?
