Live Auction: 10 items is really the max number Auction for 9 items took 1 hour 15 minutes in 2006 Presentation o Set-up the timing so one with Sponsors and Live Auction info runs all night and changes every 15 seconds o Best to advance the Live Auction slides manually. Put less info on each slide, but use more slides. Best with 2 or 3 bullets with 35 font or just a picture. Be sure details and pictures are at top of screen because bottom part of screen is hard for most people to see. Maybe put NAWN logo and Item # at bottom next year. o Have a back-up laptop with back-up presentations available just in case of technical difficulties. o Scott Klabunde agreed to provide the overhead projector and screen again. Put a table behind it with a black linen on it so it looks nice and prevents someone from pushing it over. Need 10 table top easles to display signs. I emailed my 10 signs to Staples and they printed in color for $8 each. They told me to save them in JPEG first and then email, but it messed up the font. I would email in Power Point. Pre-bidding didn’t really work. Works for Circle of Friends so may not be a bad idea to try again, but we only bids on 3 or 4 items. Ask Sound Man to increase the volume of the microphone for auctioneer once music stops…wasn’t loud enough For trips that can sell multiple times, put each winning packet in a different envelope clearly marked so the first couple doesn’t get handed all copies and then the other couples get nothing. For check-out, have your Runner volunteers aware of why we need to swipe the actual card. Most people were annoyed by that, but I think it is because we pay a lower % fee if the card is swiped. Double check with the Treasurer on that. May want to have 2 runners for Kent Smith house and 4 runners for Klabunde house. 1- Two Season Tickets for all 2006 OSU Home Football Games - donated by New Albany Women's Network Opening Bid - $1,500; Minimum - none; Value - $850 (usually goes for around $3K, I think) Sold for $4,500 Charles and Lorraine Spahr. two President's Club Level season tickets for all 2006 OSU home football games Seats in section 22a, row 27, seats 31-32 2- Georgian-style Doghouse - donated by The Tuckerman Development Company Opening Bid - $2,000; Minimum - none; Value - $4,000 Did not sell Built by The Tuckerman Development Company and architect Todd Parker Delivery included by Tuckerman 3 - Private Villa at Celebration of Life in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico - donated by Kent Smith Photography (WE CAN SELL THIS ONE TWICE) Opening Bid - $2,500; Minimum - $3,000; Value $4,900 Sold twice for $4,400 to Jackie/Tim Sokol and Kelly/Kristen Fox and also to Sherri/Jim Mullins.
