And the donations are already rolling in.

Great to see the generosity offered by BGG members in aid of such a good cause. I'll keep checking back

Best of luck! I'll have to see if I have something I can contribute this year. I'm sure there's some game collecting dust that could use a good home

AEG have done a collection of donations to the cause, and some classics in there too. If you've not started looking yet, or not looked for a couple of days, jump on now, donate an item or bid high, it's for charity after all.

Awesome!

I'll ponder something(s) awesome to donate this year.

Edit: While I ponder something awesome, I'll at least start out with a bit of my time and expertise (such as it is).

Was just on the JV Memorial Fund website and every time I watch that video I can't help but think of how much fun he would've had with his dad and the family and board games Hope he is up there, waiting to meet his Dad one day and play some board games with him.

Re: The Jack Vasel Memorial Fund Auction 2016 ... ONLY 5 DAYS REMAINING!
Five days left and, as always, we're raising a good amount of money for the cause thanks to the amazingly generous donors and bidders.

That said, if we want to reach the heights of the last three years, we need more items. Do you have an unwanted or underplayed game sitting on your shelf? If so, please consider adding it to the auction. You help fellow gamers in their times of great financial need, and can get a tax deduction for your charitable donation! Even a donation on the last day can raise a good amount...

Thank you!

Indeed. I posted something with less than an hour and a half to go last year and it raised $185. But no reason to wait to post an item; let us all bask in your generosity now!

Re: The Jack Vasel Memorial Fund Auction 2016 ... ONLY 5 DAYS REMAINING!
I would be very grateful if someone could tell me when the auction finish-time is in Germany.
It doesn't help me to know that it's 11:59 server time on the 14th.
I know the server is in Texas, but do you have dayllight saving time there?
With or without, what time is that in Germany?
Thanks

If it's 11.59 PM Texas time, then yes.
If it's 11.59 AM Texan time, then, nope.

This is from the header, so I think I'm good.

Quote:
The auction ends at 11:59pm server time on November 14th, 2016. This means that we will not accept any bids with a timestamp of 12:00 a.m. or later the night the auction closes. (Please note the anti-sniping rule below). FYI, server time is CST (GMT -6)


Though the (GMT -6) is still confusing. I guess they didn't consider that daylight saving time is finished here by end of October.
(I hate all the daylight saving time BS).

I just type into Google 'Current time in Texas', which brings up https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Current+time+in+Texas&ie=u....

Google does a lot of work for me

That's true, there are still many bargains to be picked up.

If you're a member of any social media board game groups, don't keep the auction to yourself, let your friends know.

It's not to late to list new items either, even in the last 24 hours, lots can help raise money for the fund.

When paying with paypal, shall we declare "for family and friends" or "for goods and services" ?
It says that "for family and friends" I can only do that within the EU...

As it is an international tax relevant donation, I guess you should do it as service. I did, and I hope it wasn't wrong!

The fund is well aware of the cost of doing business with paypal, so if there are fees to be taken out along the way, we understand. Pay with whichever method you believe is correct.
