Did the date change from the 6th to the 13th or was it always planned for the 13th? Anyone else care to share what they're bringing?

Thank you. I was seeing some conflicting info on payment type. Maybe I was seeing last year mixed with this year? Great news on the credit card deal. Makes it easier IMO for some like me.

Ken,
The TCRCOnLine.com is the only official source for information for the auction.
This thread is casual.

You know,

I have never really cared for auctions, but it would be interesting if these model club auctions were on live feed so you could see what kind of stuff is showing up at different sales around the country.

I have been to a sales that were mostly arf's rc boats,cars... And a few that still had some kits, and lots of builders buying/bidding on them. One time I tried to get some random balsa that had been stuffed in a box.. It was like a shark feeding frenzy !

Its always interesting when some NICE plane sells complete for nothing, and then some odd half built abandoned thing gets in a wild bidding war...

OH, and another thing... has anyone noticed if things have turned into a buyers market with all the FAA stuff going on? I have seen guys dumping future projects because of it..

Great Job TCRC with the auction yesterday, you guys really kept the items moving and this is the first one I can remember finishing before 5, maybe the best one I've been to in the last 12 years.

I just got word that we'll have some Giant Scale Warbird Buyers coming in from Fond Du Lac area for the auction so your items should get a number of bidders!

Scott,
Thanks for the info! I just got your email on the Scale Flyers Meeting. I was thinking about sending you this link. I was going to ask you if you thought I posted enough information. It's hard to part with my builds but I still have four other giant scale airplanes I built to fly.
See you at auction,
Larry
