First off I want to thank everybody for contributing, bidding, or helping with the PBS Auction.
ALL Bid forums will open N8vember 15th at 6 PM Eastern.
CLOSE DATES Bid Forums 1 - 4:
Forum 1 - DECEMBER 1ST - close at 10 PM Eastern
Forum 2 - DECEMBER 2ND - close at 10 PM Eastern
Forum 3 - DECEMBER 3RD - close at 10 PM Eastern
The 10:00 PM closing means that your bid must be time stamped 9:59 to count. If there is a tie bid during the last minute, the 1st one to bid the tie amount will be the winner.
The last bid before the 10:00 PM deadline each night will determine the winner. Weíve had a few complaints about sniping on other auctions so I guess if it will bother you to get out-bid at the last second you had better bid high enough to make it painful for the sniper.
Alright here we goÖ
List your donations on the "Listing Forum", follow the instructions at the top. Donít forget to state if you are covering shipping to the winner or not.
Please keep an eye on your listing(s) during the auction so you can answer questions if needed.
After the Auction you will need to communicate with the winner and make arrangements for getting the item to the winner AFTER payment is made.
If your interested in an item just post your bids like you were posting on a thread in Pow-Wow or anywhere else.
I'm going to ask you to please stick to these minimum bid increments. While it might be fun to bid in very small increments but it is a real nightmare at the end of the auction. Thanks
Items up to $10 -- $1 Items $10 - $100 -- $5 Items over $100 -- $10
After the Auction
OK guys and gals hereís what is gonna happen. At the deadline we will lock down all the threads then we'll go through and list the winners with totals. Please be patient.
You will need to pay via paypal, check or M/O. As they receive payments they will post on the thread, "payment received" and then itís OK to ship items. The winner and donor will need to be in contact with each other to make sure everything happens the way itís supposed to. You can click on each other's handle and either email or PM from the Profile screen.
Paying for your treasures -
There's a couple ways to settle up after the auction and I'd really appreciate being done within a couple weeks. Please include you real name, TG handle, LINK TO THREAD(S)and all Auction info with correspondence.
You can pay with check or M/O written to Professional Bowhunters Society, (please do not write them to me or Trad Gang) and mailed to
PBS, PO BOX 246, Terrell NC 28682
Or you can pay via Paypal.com. Click on the link and log in or register then click on "Send Money" enter firstname.lastname@example.org in the "pay to" space, be sure to reference "PBS AUCTION" then just follow the instructions. When making your payment you can choose two options "Pay for Goods and Services" or "Send money to Friends and Family". Under the G&S option PBS will be charged the PayPal fees, under the F&F option you will be responsible for any fees depending on you payment method.
No matter the payment method.....
Please give them ALL the info from your particular auction, reference PBS Auction, item, donor, both your name and TG handle . With a few hundred items it gets real confusing for this ol country boy.
Have fun, Bid high, Bid often!!

Although once we begin posting items for auction, beginning Nov 5, anyone may add an item, most of our items will be posted over several days by a volunteer group of PBS members who are collecting commitments to donate items from our membership right now. We have some great stuff so get ready!

Question: Will someone from the PBS verify that payment has been received since the instructions above state that shipment is to be made only AFTER payment has been made. How will donors know if the payment has been received by the home office?
