QuarterMania is an auction where you use quarters to bid on chances to win.
You arrive, cash in for quarters (or bring your own) and rent bidding paddles (you get 2 paddles with admission and add more for $1 each as you desire).
Each paddle is numbered and there is a ping pong ball with the same number on it thrown into the bucket.
Players spend pregame time visiting booths and checking out what's going to be up for auction. There is also a table raffle on many vendors' tables. They are 3/$1. Winners pulled at the end of the evening.
When the Auction starts, the Emcee will let you know what the item is, who donated it, and its value.
For items valued up to $25, it is a ONE QUARTER bid. If you want to use one paddle, you throw one quarter in the basket and hold up that one paddle. If you want to raise 3 paddles, 3 quarters, etc.
Items up to a $50 value will be 2 quarters and so on (a quarter for every $25 increment in value of the item).
Emcee calls an end to bidding and we collect all the quarters - then draw a numbered ping pong ball from a bucket. The first number she calls that matches a paddle in the air wins that item.
After all items have been auctioned, the vendors will have their booths open for shopping and many will have cash and carry items available!!
