9 TCYS Baskets LT FFA Alumni received 12 baskets – Inventory list: The baskets are in my garage and we will dispose of them shortly We gave Emily Cotton Reserve Lamb basket (Yeti cooler) to Direct Propane

10 TCYS Bidding Overview The BIG Picture Youth Fair and livestock auctions play out like 2 completely different auctions – YF auction is more like a real auction with competing bidders – YF bidders would rather win the bid outright and not be included on a bid sheet. Because of this, LT FFA Alumni was not high bidder on a single YF item—instead we were an ADD-ON. – Livestock is a faux auction with orchestrated bidding up to the total amount collected on the bid sheet – Livestock bidders are more about spreading the money around and putting $100-$200 on the bid sheets—LT FFA Alumni was high bidder on a majority of livestock projects (but not all) – Some bidders only participate in YF and some only participate in livestock, there are a few bidders that participate in both

11 TCYS Bidding Overview The Process 1.Alumni fill out bid sheets for each LT lot with our bid amount on line 1 2.Each floor member select 3-4 kids to increase bid amount 3.Floor member circles the floor soliciting additional bids for LT kids they are currently working 4.Return bid sheets to home base and select next batch 5.Repeat steps 2-4 for 12 hours until your brain is mush and everybody is out of money. Only stopping twice to go to the bathroom, woof down some brisket and a chug a bloody Mary.

12 TCYS Bidding Overview Show me the money LT FFA Alumni distributes funds equally among all LT students – Exception: Students of non-participating parents How your animal places has ZERO relevance on amount of money received at auction – Exception: Grand/Reserve champions If some LT project seemed to go for some a much higher price than the typical LT project, it was probably due to some outside entity other than LT FFA Alumni

13 TCYS Bidding Overview Greatest Bang for the Buck 1.Send TARGETED letters to TCYS buyers Share list with Alumni officers 2.Do business with TCYS buyers 3.Support buyer groups fundraising events 4.Get add-ons from business YOU frequent 5.Get add-ons from family 6.Know somebody with money
