CYC-Net depends upon the donations of
its users and supporters to operate and
innovate. At the Clan Gatherings a silent
auction has become a way to fund raise
and have fun doing so. Delegates are
asked to bring something reflective of
their home place. The result is an auction
that reflects the world. This page
illustrates the items of the 2013 edition.

Clearly apologies to those who have been missed in this archive were in order. The goal
was to attempt to photograph each item. As this was published, there were 98 lots in this
auction, one coming in two hours prior to the closing. Much of the world was represented
in the end and the bidding was fast and furious on some items. The auction was a
sensational and fun benefit for CYC-Net.
