You'll need cards (credit and debit) to buy from the on-line silent auction, cash to buy raffle tickets and enter and the Heads and Tails competition, and cash or cards to buy your drinks.

14 tickets still have to be sold due to returns. Price is £45 each, with a discount if 1 free ticket for 10 bought in one block. Contact: julian.roderick.chisholm@gmail.com if you want to buy them.

ON-LINE SILENT AUCTION

The Summer Ball auction is an Online Silent Auction, culminating in a live silent auction at the Ball itself. It goes live on Wednesday, 31st May at 12 noon . All club members, associates, and friends can take part in the auction by accessing the auction's website at:

https://www.jumblebee.co.uk/winchesterrugbyclub2017summerballauction

Then register, decide what you want to bid for, and start bidding.

If you are not going to the Ball, you can leave proxy bids, so that you can win a chosen lot if your proxy achieves the highest bid at the Ball. In the event of a draw with a live bidder, the live bidder wins.

The On-line phase of the auction ends at 12 noon on Friday, 9th June.

The auction will re-open at 7.00 pm on Saturday, 10th June at the Ball, when bidding will be in real time using iPads especially provided for each table. To provide personal security at the Ball bidders will be given a PIN (can be changed) by the auction system.

Ballers will be able to follow the auction's progress on TV monitors during dinner. The auction is expected to close before dancing to the Huskies begins at around 10.15ish. Winners with proxy bids will be contacted by Jumblebee e-mail.

Then winners give their card details (Amex not preferred) to Jumblebee, the administrators f the auction, after which they collect their lots from them.

Lots so far include a free house sale from the estate agent's Charters, two 7 day holiday rentals on the Mediterranean, a couture dress, jewellery, a brown leather back pack, a patent leather lady's bag, Jack Daniels whiskey, pictures, and lots of meals at local restaurants.

If you want to help raise funds for the club and have something suitable for the auction: no worries. Lots can be added whilst the auction is in progress, so please contact julian.roderick.chisholm@gmail.com with the details of any lots you want to donate, or at the Ball see a Jumblebee representative.
