Yeah, most of the Jeepers probably have no idea what the value is of those silver stars. You can bid now and have a good shot at winning....That 5 ouncer is sweet!

When you bid on this site it is like a proxy bid. You put in the max and even at the live auction we will keep bidding for you up to that amount. Very fair for everyone whether present or not.

This fundraiser was in support of Wheelers for the Wounded (WFTW). It was a gathering of MANY offroad clubs and associations coming together. Dan can expand on this but, this was a very unique deal at Canyon's Offroad Park this past weekend. Looking forward to Dan giving us a detailed report. :thumbup:

Again, members of Bullionstacker ended up being a major part of this whole thing. There were 3 silver stars poured by YPS with silver donated by BS members. Like Randy pointed out to me, that 4 ounce star is one of a kind. ONE guy from Belton, Texas ended up outbidding everyone for them. He may even join up on the forum here....

Congratulations to Dan and crew on a great event and thanks Bullionstackers for the continued support. This is going to go towards putting on a premier event in May for wounded and their families. I anticipate this to be the largest gathering of the 4x4 community ever in Texas.

Hey Guys, sorry, just getting home. The fundraiser was not only a huge success, it was a hell of lot of fun. Probably the most fun I have had in a long time. At least since the last main event. Lots of good people and great trails. Not real incidences. I took the beginners out and got my whole group through the trail. Well everyone but me, Yep, the trail leader got stuck. I also flopped her but have not seen a pic of that yet.

The auction did very well. Total on five items was int he neighborhood of $4500 just on the auction. One gentleman bought all three stars. I had a buddy who wanted them but he outbid me on them. He paid $900 for the set. The words Thank You, never really express how we truly feel sometimes and this is one of those times. I can not tell you how grateful we are to have Bullion Stacker behind us. You guys are invaluable in helping us do what we love doing.

Also if your on Facebook, you can see our Wonder Boy Shane getting a ride in an Ultra 4 racing buggy. Shane is one of our Wounded Soldiers. He was hit with an IED. Has been in the Wounded Transition Brigade for 3.5 years and just had another surgery. Go check out the video and tons of pictures of the event.
