Oral Auctions - there will be 3-5 Oral Auction Items including:

Silent Auctions:
  • All sorts of items including DONATED FLIES [from local talent as well as some of the experts!] and necessary gear will be available and changing throughout the day for you to peruse and place a bid on [bidder numbers will be issued upon your admission].
Please note Major Credit Cards will be accepted.
Oral Auctions start around NOON!
Food: catered food will be available for purchase from the same GREAT provisioners as years past - back by popular demand!

The organizers of PNWFTR note they hope the NEW VENUE will provide more space, better parking, better building access, better lighting and restrooms that work. There is no change to the quality of tyers presenting and the multiple silent auctions. The $3.00 admission fee helps to pay for the venue and will provide the attendees with an opportunity to win door prizes worth about $50.00 each. 

All monies are redistributed to local non-profit organizations to help fund LOCAL projects - 1000's of dollars have been spent over the last several years and they are looking to improve that record!
