I’ll bet you didn’t know that bi-annual can mean either “once every two years” or “twice a year.” Confusing, eh? But biennial only means “once every two years” and semi-annual only means “twice a year.” Let’s agree that we won’t use “bi-annual” at all. See what you learn by being a PCA member?
Anyway, we have an auction every two years and it will take place in November of 2014 at the Natick VFW Hall (same place where we had the State Police Officer and Rob Siegel).
The always entertaining Tom Tate will once again be our auctioneer. And what will he be auctioning? The stuff you bring, of course. You can either keep the proceeds or donate them to the club’s charity of choice: Angel Flight NE. What can you bring? Well car stuff is the best but pretty much anything is fair game (and amusing/unusual is really good). It’s a pretty rowdy good time. We will have snacks and a cash bar. Afterwards some of us will convoy to Margaritas (725 Cochituate Rd. Framingham) for lunch and tequila shots. Sign up below please and direct questions to Bill Seymour.
Here’ s the report from the 2012 event…
Our auctioneer, Tom Tate, came dressed in authentic red overalls similar to those worn by the Porsche factory workers. He kicked off the usual humorous bidding with some compact tire pressure gauges, being sold by, guess who, Tom himself. They were quickly grabbed for an amazingly great price by two bidders. Then followed some really nice collectible items that Jerry Pelegrino offered. The fi rst was an original poster publicizing the 1962 U.S. Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, complete with pictures of some of the cars competing and a list of the drivers; a who’s who of that period of time. The next, another noteworthy poster, was a beautiful painting of a 356 plowing thru a snow-covered road. Both pieces drew strong bids. On came other Porsche-related maintenance items: oil and air filters, some lowering springs, a front spoiler for a 996, a dozen or so hardcover books, and official Porsche calendars, complete with the desirable coin. A very nice 993 was offered for sale but there were no takers at this time. Our track chair had his tire trailer on the block too, but it was again a no go. Getting off the car related bent, a box of florescent bulbs was offered and they all sold; must be a shortage somewhere. As always, Tom egged on the audience to better their bids with his usual quick wit, which raised loads of laughter from the crowd, and higher bids. Sellers had the option of keeping the proceeds or donating the receipts to our charity Angel Flight NE, to which more than $100 was given.
