Correction note: BB item 1008, the Hannaford gift cards donated by Mascoma Bank are valued at $500. The newspaper insert was incorrect. We apologize for any confusion.
New item: Board J, Item 197 - the item listed in the Eagle Times insert is no longer available. We have replaced it with a new item: 4 tickets to an Iron Pour event in Claremont. Value $40.
PLEASE NOTE: You MUST still be able to come to the Sugar River Valley Technical Center in Claremont NH to pick up any items you win. We are not able to ship items out. If you are not sure how to get here, we can give you directions when we call to notify you of items you have won.
All items available for the auction are listed under the Auction Groups tab. You may place online bids at any time from now until the board hosting your desired item has concluded (the system will not take bids on closed boards). You may also set up your bid number any time between now and April 7th through this online system. That number can be used for online bids, and also for calling in.
The auction itself begins at 10 AM on Saturday, April 6, but we will be able to take some phoned in bids a little before 10. The phone line is only active for Auction day. For boards A through L, bid increments are $1. For the Big Board, board increments are $10.
PLEASE NOTE: The Big Board ends at 4:20. It is only 20 minutes - don't miss out by tuning in too late!
