ONLINE SILENT AUCTION
- Online Silent Auction
- Raffle Tickets
- Roundup T-Shirts
- APA Packraft Roundup Page on Facebook...This is where we will be posting any last minute announcements.
We know you love packrafting, and we know you love gear; so American Packrafting Association is hosting an Online Silent Auction so you can show your support for packrafting AND win rad gear! A huge thanks to our sponsors...listed at the bottom of this email! In order to win, make sure you check out these participation guidelines:
AMAZING AUCTION ITEMS INCLUDE:
- Bidding begins today, Friday July 1 at 10:00am MDT, and ends Saturday, July 9th at 7:00pm MDT.
- Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) does not allow active bidding in the Park. All bids must be placed outside GTNP boundaries (thatâ€™s why weâ€™re doing an online auction ahead of time instead of onsite).
- Only registered Roundup participants may bid on items or win them. That's a real perk!! Please donâ€™t share the link in this email.
- To participate, go to APAâ€™s online auction website and create an account. Once youâ€™ve got an account, let the bidding wars begin!
- Winners will be announced and presented their gear at 9:00pm on July 9th.
- Payment will occur automatically through Paypal when your bid wins at the auction closing time.

One free raffle ticket will be distributed to each registrant upon check-in. Additional raffle tickets are $5 each on our website and sales close on Thursday, July 7th at 12:00pm MST. Ticket pick-up will only be available at the check-in table â€“ so be sure to stop by when you arrive!
T-shirts: New This Year!
To commemorate the awesome times weâ€™ll have together, weâ€™ve created a t-shirt for you to take the fun home with you this year. Supplies are limited! Again, since GTNP doesnâ€™t allow the sale of items in the park, t-shirts are available only online at the APA Store. Purchase yours in advance, and then pick them up when you check-in at the Roundup. Leftover T-shirts will be available online after the event, plus shipping.
We canâ€™t wait to gather together with you all next week! Have a safe 4th of July and see you soon. Please let us know if you have any additional general questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. For registration and payment questions, contact David Nix at email@example.com or (385) 831-3682.
