Hey gang- Time to start searching your garage shelves for items to donate to this year's HAMB drags silent auction. Thanks to a batch of you who pitched in some super- bitchin' stuff last year - we zoomed from our previous sub-$200 take to almost $750! It was tons of fun, and Lots of people went away VERY happy. This is year 5 for the HAMB drags, and to celebrate - I'm proposing we shoot for a $1,000 buck day. All we need are for about 50 members to add goodies to the pile. Everyone has something they can give. It just takes a minute's thought to come up with a cool item. And hey, if you can't make it to MoKan, send your stuff with someone who can. As always, the silent auction will be at the track on race day. See me the day before in the host motel parking lot, or just drop your items off at my little set-up below the timing tower when you get to the track. This has really gotten to be a fun deal, with tons of very cool stuff to be had. Whether you donate or not, BE SURE to come by and check it out (yes, there have been rumors about free beer). As always, 100% of the take goes directly to Ryan at the end of the day Old custom and/or rod magazines, decals, and other hot rod memorabillia are great. Shift knobs, chrome goodies, pin-striped items, die-cast models, etc., are good too. Valve covers, breathers, air cleaners, and so forth are also cool. Check out just a small fraction of last year's swag in the attached photos. There should be lots more this year! Tip- really large stuff - rear-ends, body parts, trannys, etc., aren't the best thing. Most folks dig the nifty (and clean) items they can easily carry away. I'll be posting pics of some special stuff I've collected for this year's auction - along with additional reminders on a regular basis until the drags. Meanwhile, start digging through your stash to find something special to donate. Let's take this thing over the top this year!
