After receiving the Governor’s order Friday afternoon, the volunteer board was able to organize a meeting on Saturday afternoon to determine what our event now looks like. After a couple hours of discussing many, many scenarios, options, and results/consequences, we have determined to continue with the Friday AND Saturday ONLINE AUCTION ONLY at 7:00 pm each night with some enhancements and additional items.
Of course, unwinding and revamping an event of this size involves many people, emails, phone calls, and meetings with vendors, outfitters, caterers, service providers, attendees, sponsors, firearm dealers, etc., etc. Once the information is gathered, changes, refunds, and revamping needs to be done by the programmers and schedulers, etc. Many thanks to Eagle Eye Banquet Center for accommodating us during this anomaly.
We have already been contacted by some auction donors who are enhancing their donations for the auction in light of this virus forced change, so as to further help the mission of SCI. Please support all our donors who help make this event successful. Call them up, book an adventure outside of the auction.
We have also been contacted by a few event ticket purchasers who donated all or part of their ticket price to the chapter in lieu of a full refund. Based on each attendee’s wishes and their desire to further support the mission of SCI, we will be issuing a partial or full refund of purchased tickets. If you purchased tickets, please email your refund/donation desire to [email protected] or we will be contacting each purchaser as fast as time allows. We will process each refund as requested ASAP.
We look forward to having everybody join us on our ONLINE live auction at 7:00 pm on Friday and Saturday evenings, March 20 & 21. Click on the blue button above to get to the auction page and review items. Please also forward this to friends who may now have their schedule open to attend our online auction.
Register early before Friday so that entering the auction Friday and Saturday is easier. The Lansing SCI Chapter has WAIVED the 5% buyer’s premium for both nights’ auctions this year. Bid high and bid often!
Thank you for your understanding and supporting the mission of SCI and remember to wash your hands!!
