    Up for auction comes a pretty rare beer mug. The proceeds from this auction is for needy AK members, respectively VOA.

    Starting bid is 10 American dollars. The auction ends on Sunday, November 20, at Noon (12 am Eastern Time). The winner has to send the money to Ernie (luvvinvinyl). As soon as he has received the money, I will send the stein to the winner, very well packed (Box in box). I will pay the shipping costs to any location in the world.

    And now - Happy bidding.

    It definitely isn't seeing the bids I thought it would. However, it is of primary interest to Canadians, and the Canadian $ is very poor against the US $ right now. That $35 US bid is $47 Cdn already.

    And I thank you !I'm a little surprised that other AKer's didn't participate in such a worthy cause, but their loss is my gain. I'll be sure and hoist a mug as a toast to you when it arrives!!!
