Let the bidding begin!

LPTRFW5CH1-Finish-Shot

 

Tomorrow at 6pm, the silent auction for the Les Paul Future Tribute begins!  You’ll need to create a username and password for the site if you’ve never bid on auctions at 32auctions.com, so make sure you take care of that say, todayish.

 

The auction ends during the final night of Crash Safely and the guitar will be available for pickup right there that night!

 

You’ll be able to check out the guitar at every night of Crash Safely, but you’ll only be able to take it home on 10/17…. unless you choose the “Buy Now” option!

All the prizes!

Check out all of the things we’ve got waiting for you to win at Crash Safely this year!  More keeps coming in, so this list is far from complete, but there’s still plenty of great things to choose from!

Up for Grabs: Date Night!

Check out the menu and figure out what fancy things you’re going to wear!

Wear yourself out on the boat? Take advantage of the Sheraton’s spa, or lounge around their pool!

This prize will be up for grabs on 10/10, so make sure you get your tickets!!!

Up for Grabs: Shake Shack

Few comfort food places can boast crazy lines in the middle of a heat wave during an outdoor music festival or intense public debates about their french fries, but Shake Shack is not your average comfort food stand.  Burgers, the aforementioned fries, hot dogs, custard, and of course, shakes, round out a pretty robust menu of goodies.

cheese fries?!? They have cheese fries?

A $25.00 gift certificate will be up for grabs at Crash Safely this year.  May we suggest checking out the menu beforehand?

Now, please excuse us.  We’re feeling a bit… hungry…

Up for Grabs: 5 days/4 nights in Cancun

Vacations!  For some of us, it seems like we never get to go on any, so when we heard back from Sunset World, our bags were already packed!

5 days and 4 nights in Cancun, in one of their 4 resorts? With access to all four?  Why aren’t we there right now?

Pictured: What we’re all missing right now.

The package is for 2 adults and two kids, although it’ll likely be fine if you bring less people.  After all, they have ‘adults only’ pools and a private beach.

Get an awesome vacation and help support the National MS Society!  We’ll be posting how to win this trip soon, so keep an eye out!!

Meet the Studios: Q Division

Ah, Q!

No, not this one.

No, not this one.

Q Division has become a record label, second home and annual BBQ yard sale funfest host over the years.  The Mayor of Q is even a Maybe Sump’ms team member! Encourage his athleticism by donating to him, and we’ll send you photographic evidence that he did indeed cross the finish line!

Q’s been part of Crash Safely right from the start, and they’re offering up a day in Studio B with Ed Valauskas! Ed’s also played Crash Safely with the Gentlemen!

Up for Grabs: Death Wish Coffee Gift Set

Coffee.  It’s a favorite drink of ours and we’ve had quite a lot of it to share over the years.

This year, we have  the strongest coffee you can buy.

What are you trying to tell me?

What are you trying to tell me?

Death Wish Coffee has an awesome name, awesome coffee and awesome logos.  How could we possibly pass them up?

They take their coffee very, very seriously (as do we).

They also have a coffee from Zakk Wylde called Valhalla Odinforce Blend.

Meet the Studios: Zippah

Every year at Crash Safely, we have a silent auction for studio time with some of our favorite folks in town.   This year, we’d like to introduce to you each of the studios, so you can plan the recording of your masterpiece(s).

 

First up: It’s Zippah! You may be familiar with their Tuesday Night Recording Club, or maybe you’ve seen Brian or Annie playing around town in The Sheila Divine or The Field Effect.  Spend a day with Brian at Zippah working on whatever recording project you wish.  He means it, too: TRiPLE THiCK used the day to record a full length, as well as sneak me in to shoot some video.

The studio silent auction will be live right before the first show on 9/27.  We’ll update everything here so that you never miss your chance to win!

Did someone say coffee?

Last year, we had a ton of breakfast goodies up for raffle and silent auction. In fact, I think the person who won the coffee for a year is still plowing through his stash of beans!

This year, the good folks at Green Mountain Coffee/Keurig have generously upped the caffeination donation. You can vie for a platinum Keurig coffee maker and a case of coffee this year!

A case of coffee.  Not a pound, or a bag.  A case.  Paging Mike Oliver!
