I won’t show the tally of these on the total tally as none of it passed through my paypal and it will just confuse me if I try to add it
I’ve had a couple of awesome members contact me with very special items to auction
Thank you SawMaster and MRsDNF
I had a bogan…er I mean fellow aussie pm me with some interesting ideas to raise money which have worked out really well. He put me in contact with J-Dub74 who is on very good terms with Simon.
Outcome – Simon from Convoy Electronics has generously donated a number of flashlights to this cause. 8)
J-Dub74 has helped a lot in orchestrating this including selecting the lights and I quote “These are all lights that I either own myself and love or lights that I really want to add to my collection.” Given the slow start to the raffle we agreed to auction these lights to try and aim for the best outcome for OL. I will pm the winners on how to collect there winnings. The lights will ship directly from Simon to the winners. The following links are non-affiliated so please use them and have a good look

Thank you Simon! Please visit Simon’s store when thinking of your next purchase.
A couple of members suggested a raffle instead of auctions to get more people involved so I have started one Ended Friday 29th July as 12:01pm UTC Any questions or comments please keep it in this thread to keep the raffle threads clean for the draw.
Of course, contributions are still accepted either anonymously to me or straight to Justin . I’m sure he would appreciate a pm along with any contribution.
Money from raffle #1 – $96
Light(s) provided by an anonymous member. Up for grabs is a BLF X5 choice of 1a or 3c tint. If a total of $100 is raised then the good member will provide the second X5 to a second winner picked from the same entries (first winner has choice of tint). This is good incentive for more tickets to be bought. As an added incentive to get more people to enter I will set the price to be $3 per ticket or $5 for 2. Ended Friday 25th August 00:01UTC
Money from raffle #2 – $145
K40M in like new condition. According to the post office rules the batteries are included – 3500mAh LG MJ1 End time for this raffle shall be Thursday 29th September at 00:01am UTC

For those who miss out on acquiring lights and still wish to add to the pool (or you’d just like to add) here’s my paypal – pinkpanda3310(at)gmail.com It doesn’t have to be much, whatever you are comfortable with. Please make a note that it is for Justin and Valerie or Old-Lumens. Not that I’m likely to get it mixed up since money rarely goes in that direction on my account Tally is just above for everyone to see.—————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Hello all. The good admin has permitted me to hold this auction, i guess since it’s for a good cause and not my own benefit. I’m offering these lights up for auction but the $ from all sales will go to Justin and Valerie (Old-Lumens).
If you haven’t read Justin’s blog please do – http://dyingintylertx.blogspot.com.au/
If he was just a cranky ol’ bugger bout to drop off the perch then so be it. I don’t see it that way. Apart from being a model citizen with morals and values he’s a married man. To me that’s a partner in all your life experiences… including the end. Unfortunately the end has come sudden and with expense. Leaving Valerie in a not so good position. I feel for them, I really do. So this is as much for Valerie as it is for Justin. I realize this will only raise a meagre sum for them so I encourage others to play a part helping this couple out. I have Justin’s paypal but didn’t actually ask his permission to post it so if you’d like to contribute directly I suggest you pm him. Alternately if you’d like to remain anonymous you can pm me, although I’m sure there are others too, since I wouldn’t call myself the closest of friends with Justin. That doesn’t stop me from wanting to be his friend. His manner and attitude have attributes that I respect and would like to see myself like that one day. So this is kind of a thank you for all the wisdom and inspiration Justin has brought to both this forum and to myself.
Rules will be simple as possible. I have pm’d a few prominent members and think this system will be the best way to go about it. Below are a few pics of lights, 6 groups. I will start a thread for each as the ‘auction thread #’. So there will be six separate auctions, having individual threads will make it easier to track for everyone involved. Anyone can then place a bid as many times as you like in one (or all) of the auction threads. Each bid will be there for everyone to see. If someone thinks they can afford a little more they can post a bid higher than the last. For example-In Thread # 4
Bob posts a $10 bid
Joe posts a $15 bid
Jane posts $17 bid
Bob posts a $20 bid (then Bob goes to the other threads and bids more)
As you can see, Bob can afford it.
I will set a cut off time for bidding to end in each thread. Last highest bid posted before the cut off time wins. Under no circumstances can you edit a post. Any edited posts will be disqualified. I will pm the winner and when payment is received will post out at my cost. When all moneys are paid I will make one lump some payment to Justin. He may (if he is up to it) post in this thread at the end of it all that he has received the $.
Please use this thread for questions about the lights and/or auctions. I’ll answer as best I can but one thing, please don’t ask me what tints the led’s are. I have a terrible memory of what actually went in the lights and judging by eye… well… beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So I’d like to stay away from trying to describe tints please. Deals will be final but if a winner is unhappy with their lights I will do my best to try and make things good if possible.
