You no doubt saw todays bid of $800.00 for the Yankee jersey you donated.
The logistics of putting something like this together is a bit mind boggling at times. You never know what is going to jump out and bite you.
This afternoon I was informed that there is a sailing regatta scheduled for Saturday, just off the end of the Naples Pier. This of coarse is right where we were to pass by for pictures.
They are going to talk about it to see what can be done to accomodate us. I will let you know the outcome.
It is now 9:00 PM and the bidding is closed for item # 13.
Mr. Wayne Korn, Marco Island is the winner of 2 seats on Terry Sobo's Nor Tech paceboat in Saturdays benefit Run to Naples. Congratulations Wayne and thank you.
We now have bidders on 17 of the 20 items in the auction pool. Auction closes on Sunday Feb. 4th at 5:00 PM EST. Lots of great items well below market value. Check it out on post # 1 of this thread.

I would like to open the bidding on Item #20, the High Speed Boating Course, at $300.00.
I think we need some love from the Apache Gang Sure would be nice to see Team Predator bring the World Champion Boat to Naples, I have some girls who would love to dance on the bow, the Apache song just makes you want to dance. Would also like to see a 47' Apache, we have 4 or 5 Nor Tech 50', and a couple 51 Outerlimits, its for a great cause and you will have fun. Did I mention Team Hooters will be there.
Also captnate, Nate Hunt has jumped over my friend Jim Haskell for the boat lettering job donated by Jayboat with a $300.00 bid.
Kinda neat for me to sit here and watch all my friends duke it out !! LOL
Speaking of friends, got an e mail from my best friend up in Waterloo, ON Dr. Fred Hurlbut with a nice pledge.
Thank you Fred, Nate & Terry. Sorry Jim H ! LOL The auction is not over yet.
