Do something good! Bid Now!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
RicB is auctioning off a pair of hand picked (by me and Zach Lloyd) Rossignol Race Stock Skis he won in the MVR online race. To make it more interesting I will let the winner of the auction select any lenght Adult OR JUNIOR GS or Slalom skis with plates.

To see the newline up to decide what you want to bid on go HERE - the ski choice is wide open! You can even pick a pair of SuperG's if you want:

RicB's Auction

or, if RicB thinks a good idea, move the bids here.

The top bid at the moment is Rick "Fastman" at $350. Remember, half the money is going to EpicSki and the other half to disaster recovery.

Do I here $375.00?

Gary, I don't have problem moving the auction here. I'm surprised no one else has bid on these skis. What is the retail price on these skis Gary? Maybe we need to let people know what a great deal they could be getting.

My disaster relief charity choice is Habitat for Humanity, for those that want to know. Thanks again Gary for this opportunity. Thank your sponsors for me too. Later, RicB.

The retail is $900, the pro deal is about $570. But these skis are coming out of the race stock inventory so its hard to put a value on them

Are there no racers out there? C'mon guys 'n gals!

Any other ROSSIGNOL Race ski you want (Adult, Women's or Junior). Bindings are not included. I can get the winner a pair of 155 or 180 FKS Bindings for $120.

Again, here is the catalog of what is available. Anything you find in this catalog as long as we have stock available.

Just you all know what is going on. RicB won a contest, the MVR Online virtual race. His prize was a pair of ROSSIGNOL race stock skis as they are the MSR Team's main sponsor. We donated the skis for the prize. RicB, being the generous guy he is, decided to auction the skis for the benefit of EpicSki.com and Habitats for the Katrina Victims.

Just to be fair to my other sponsors, Heluvaskier and JASP both got goodies from RACE-WERKS.com I hear Heluvaskier is pretty stoked!

If you win I'll find out if I can get Bandits XXX, SCRATCH or whatever is cool now. I'll call Rossi tomorrow and see what they'll let me grab just in case you win.

C'MON YOU RACERS, GET ON IT AND START BIDDING, WE ARE STILL WAY BELOW THE RACE CENTER PRICE!!!!! :

Thanks Gary. If the bid holds, it would be a nice option. Anyone reading something into this like...I don't want to win? Would be right.

Do I hear $430

I skied my Race Stock 9Xti's this weekend at Loveland. I skied them on packed powerder, variable with ice and in crud. WHAT A SKI!!!!

The current Bid is at $425, Do I hear $450.

Remember that RicB is donating the money to EpicSki.com and Habitats for the Katrina victims. This is good for Epic, this is good for humanity.

If you are not a racer and wish to bid I will check what other skis from Rossi I can get, if I can get the Bandits or Scratch at my same deal for the race skis I'll be glad to provide those (will have to check at end of the auction). Worst case you'll have a pair of REALLY SWEET race skis to carve up your local mountain with - you'll be the envy of the hill.

Let's keep RicB's auction going!!!

Sorry, I've been kinda droping the ball haven't I? Lotta distractions. I had originaly said 14 days, but I think the 14th of November will work just fine. So whoever has the highest bid on 12 am, November 14th, wins the skis. I will need to have a check sent to me, and then I will have Gary send out the skis. We will need to PM for an address exchange.

I would guess that 20 bucks would cover shipping for Gary. Does that sound okay Gary?

As I said before, the money wil be divided between epicski and habitat for humanity huricane relief. Later, RicB.

Just to clarify: The current bid is at $410, not $425 unless there is something not posted here. I would welcome anything that bails me.
