Never been to a quarter auction? Not sure what it is? Here's a short description. It's a lot like a mix between bingo and a Chinese auction. You pay a $5 admission, which gives you your first paddle. Each paddle has a corresponding number, and the ticket goes into a bowl, while you keep the paddle.


There will be a table with a few dozen items available for you to win. Each item is a minimum of .25 to a .50 bid. Each paddle is equal to a single bid. When an item comes up for bid you put that bid amount (usually .25) into a cup on the table for each paddle you want to take a chance on. You can bid using all your paddles or just 1 or 2. If your number is called, you win that item.
