Auction Update

May 29, 2008 Newsletter

No Pebble Mine

The fundraising auction for Bristol Bay had a big week, with the gross proceeds topping $24,000! Our list of buyers now includes folks from the U.S., Canada, England, Norway and France. We need to make this issue known worldwide. In fact, I will be traveling to Italy in a few weeks to present to the board of directors of the European Fishing Tackle Trade Association. We’ll get people all over the world fired up about Pebble Mine!

Thank you to the blogs, Web sites, and magazines who are helping spread the word. The greater the number of people visiting the auction, the better the odds are that we can raise some serious money to help fight for Bristol Bay.

NOTE: For any of the trips that did not sell on the auction, contact me if you are interested. We might be able to work something out with those lodges. I’m not promising, but I’ll try. This would be trips to Rainbow River Lodge, No See Um Lodge, Bristol Bay Lodge, Alaska’s Rainbow Point Lodge, and Women’s Fly Fishing Alaska. I know it’s short notice for some of these trips, but let me know if you want me to look into it.

This auction is possible due to the very generous contributions of so many companies, lodges, and artists. Please support them and support the campaign for Bristol Bay’s future by bidding on an item or two. There’s a great selection and you should be able to find something you need or want. All starting bids are set below 70% of retail value, so you might even get a good buy.

The inventory for the auction is basically set up on a rolling basis, with new items being added every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. All listings run for 10 days, so there are always items nearing the end of their run.

Listings Sold (thanks to these buyers!):

Ending soon:

Bid on a Trip for two to Miramichi Black Rapids Lodge in Canada

Please pass this newsletter along to your friends, link the SAA auction page to your Web site, post it on your club’s Web site or newsletter, do whatever you can to keep the momentum growing.

Thanks for your support!
