Fins and Fur Auction..

Well folks, after reading that the FnF Members Bank is going to be running low on funds.  I figured it was about time I do my part to try and remedy that.  So here we go!  A while back I did a couple "latex" band mouthed howlers.  This was one that I did a little fancy carving and painting on.  It's about 8" long (tip to tip) and sports a highly detailed, finely painted coyote carving.  It's signed and dated, and I'll toss in a wooden display stand for it.  All the money from this auction will go to the Fins and Fur Members Bank to be used to benefit all the members here.  I'm going to start the bid on this howler at $75.00 and run this auction till Friday, February 24th, 8PM Eastern Time.  I'm trying to do my part.  Hope you all will do yours if at all possible. :wink:

I've been asked to place a bid for a member who wants to remain anonymous. :wo:
Who am I to argue :shrug:

And since there's no talking in here unless your posting a bid, looks like the floor's mine temporarily :biggrin:
So I wanna thank Dave for his generosity right off the bat.

The bid I'm being asked to place.
$150.00

I just had to unlock this for a bit to let you guys know that nor-cal yote won the auction with a bid of $160.00, and knowing that it was going to the FnF Bank for contests and stuff he sent in $200.00

Very much appreciated Chris :congrats:
You and Dave both, above and beyond.
On behalf of the entire membership, I just wanna say, thanks much. :wink:
