Good turnout at Sunset Bowl auction

We stopped by around lunchtime to see how the auction was progressing, and we arrived in time to see one guy buy all the lanes for $1,000 each. Well, it was just the synthetic top of all the lanes — not the gutters, sensors and the original maple wood underneath, which were all auctioned off separately.

Also, they sold the entire scoring system — computer, floor displays, monitors — for all the lanes for a total of $3,200. (In this case, that’s the total of all the individual bids, as some folks just bought a couple of the floor displays.)

But we left before the most popular items — the bowling pins — were auctioned off. Since the lot sizes are so large (it looks like you have to buy a few dozen pins at a time), we’re betting some of this will soon appear on Craigslist.

One thought to “Good turnout at Sunset Bowl auction”

  1. The Sunset Bowl is an annual event where the town of Pleasant Valley holds an auction to raise money for their school district. This year, over 100 people came out to support the event and bid on a variety of items. Because this was such a large turnout, we decided to set up a live-streaming camera so that people could bid from home. These small events like this could benefit from the same type of attention as a larger auction, so we pulled out all the stops. I would like to read in order to get more information about the popular games in the gambling industry.
