    What do you think???

    What do you all think of a "GB Fan Charity Auction" for TAF?

    If its favorable, we will work out the details but this is the idea in simplest terms.

    The idea is that people would have to donate "items"/things, it would then be put on the auction. The highest bidder will get the item and the money goes to TAF. Both the seller and the buyer donate something that goes towards TAF, so its fair.

    Thanks Spud...

    You have a while to come up with something. Cause, we are only getting started. If the idea is favorable with most, there's still the planning stage.... so it would not actually happen till early next year (2002).

    What forum do you think it belongs in Jason?

    It's Garth related... so it doesn't go in the non-Garth related poll forum.

    ... and I thought the Garth related voting forum was for getting people to post at other websites polls about Garth. You know... like... "Go to tvguide.com and vote" or something like that.

    Help me out here, I might have it wrong.

    Oh! *lol* I even forgot there was a TAF forum! OOPS.

    I'll bow to Monica's decision on this, but as for my opinion, I think it should stay here for a while as well. As we need to know what the general PG audience thinks of holding this event, I agree it should be here.

    Would this be held through PG or through TAF?

    I use to go to Tori Amos forums and they are making parties, and with the money they earn, they are sending it to RAINN, an association who helps raped and abused people.
    So I think it's great the garth fans do something similar to give help

    Very cool idea Nelly!!

    I just paid off my Touch 'Em All credit card that had a $5000 + balance and this is a way to contribute even more to the TAF!

    BTW, in the photos I took in Philly, you look so cute!

    Hi Cheryl

    NO FAIR!!!!!! I WANT A TAF CARD. I have a mastercard and American Express card. Its not like I don't have a CC but I want a TAF card.

    MAN, I'm beginning to sound like Brian whinning about Garth not touring in Europe... Sorry Brian, no pun intended

    I hope I didn't scare you too much or break the photo development place when they were trying to develope that picture... LOL, Thanks though.... <blushing> Brandon, if you are reading, you really should have a blushing smiley face

    and Thanks for the support of the idea.

    Outstanding idea Nelly!

    This is fabulous!!!
    • Another way to meet and work with other GarthNutts!
    • An opportunity to obtain that ever elusive piece of Garth memorabilia!
    • A great way to help a most worthy cause and have fun at the same time!

    You are just too cool Nelly to keep coming up with all these wonderful Garthy projects! WOW!

    Count me in for sure!

    Life is too short NOT to be a Garth Brooks fan!

    I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That is my idea of a perfect day!!!
