After a number of weeks of preparation, our 68th annual auction went to air on Saturday, March 11, 2023 on local Roger’s cable TV and live streamed on rogerstv.com. We had 213 items up for bid that ran the gamut of gift certificates, bicycles, tools, collectibles, tickets, houseware items, and many other things in between. As well as all of the items being available for view ahead of time on our website, we have carried on with the analog tradition of publishing a two page spread in the Waterloo Region Record on the Auction Eve that lists all items with a brief description, together with our auction donors, sponsors and partners.
This year, in response to last year’s feedback, we tweaked the system once more and opened the online bidding on the preceding Wednesday afternoon, left all bidding open through our telecast and then closed all bidding as we went off the air at 3 pm on Saturday. At any rate, we ended up with more than 300 more total bids than last year. During Covid we instituted a curbside pickup system for the purchased items from our auction that was well-received by the public so we have carried on with that method. This approach allows for about 99% of our product to be paid for and disbursed by the end of the weekend, thereby wrapping up the project much quicker and easier.
With another successful auction in the books we can take a bit of a breather before we start thinking about 2024. Thank you to all of our club members, our volunteers and of course our auction participants for their part in making our community a better place.
