We did this once before, but got jacked by the guy that won the bidding on Ebay, so the first Cassette Bi-Level available to the public is back on the market!

This time we're just doing a 3-day auction. The winner will get their choice of 2005 Cassette Bi-Levels (Thomas Horrell (40"), Aaron Reed (41") and Danny Hampson (42")) shipped directly from Cassette.

Bidding ends at 4:06 PM EDT this Thursday! Bidding starts at just $1, so get your bid in now. Also, if we get jacked by the winning bidder again, we're going to the next bidder in line, so even if you don't win it initially, you might be in line to get it.

Go to http://www.wakeworld.com/contests/2004/cassette.asp for more info or directly to the auction at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7110044797.

Go to http://www.wakeworld.com/contests/2004/cassette.asp for more info. It's all part of the Wakesports/WakeWorld Charity Golf Classic.

I'm not sure why somebody would do that. It makes me suspicious of some of the bidders. It seems like the last time we did this some may have been bidding just to run the price up cuz I saw a lot of the same stuff. Then when they win it, they just don't pay. I can't imagine what the motivation would be for somebody to do that. Some people just have too much time on their hands.

Doesn't it have to do with the increments? For example, if Dave was the current highest bidder on a wakeboard at $100, and I place a bid on it, and I say to go up in increments of $5, but my maximum is $125. If Dave's maximum is $150, he will be the highest bidder again at $130 (new bid recorded because he beat my maximum bid).

I may not have gotten the example exactly right, but I believe it is something like that.

Hopefully, the new high bidder will step up to the plate and not play games then run and hide like the last flake.
There's a charity involved here people.
