As a fund-raiser for Polio Plus, DG Tina and her husband Brian are progressively accepting gift baskets from one club and auctioning them off at the next club they visit.  They brought a sleigh-shaped basket from the 49er Club at Grass Valley that included several wine bottles, BBQ tools, cookies and nuts.  Collaborative bids were encouraged, so Roger Hassler started the bidding at $100 and said that the basket should be used by President Tiffany for gifts and other club purposes.  An unofficial tally of the contributors to the Cameron Park bid for the basket (and towards Polio Plus) is as follows:  Jim Buckley $200; Jana Ellerman $200; Bob Clarke $200; Roger Hassler $100; Ulla Peterson $100; Bill Ettlich $100; Tom Elken $100; Mike Dugan $100; Dick Franks $100; Bob Dorr $100 -- for a total of $1300.   
The basket put together by CPR (shown at left) included a large number of wine bottles and was very heavy.  Of Jana's $200 bid on the 49er club basket, $100 was to encourage ADG Vickie to go to the Placerville meeting that evening and encourage high bidding since the club that raises the most money with their basket will get some seating at at table with motivational speaker (and former SF Giant pitcher) Dave Dravecky at next Spring's 4-Way-Fest conference.
