    The auctioneer, Mike Hobbs, runners Scott McCarter, Trish Shafer, and Sonny McCarter all had a big workout as more than 150 items were sold at the annual member's auction. Some good bargains were gained by bidders and some excellent prices realized for sellers. Thanks to all who participated in one way or another.
