Continental US.... that excludes us people in Hawaii and Alaska.... the US Postal Service delivers to us at no additional surcharge or delays or loss of trackable/insurable..... You don't have to ship via FedEx to get trackable, timely delivery... that's a left over policy from the 80's f'chrissakes.....

But, it's common with retailers who only have one shipping account with FedEx or UPS, etc... It easier for them to deal with one shipper, so we folks in Hawaii and Alaska get screwed with a $40 - $60 shipping surcharge when other people get off scott-free. Use the USPS and there is no problem. Sux.

Hey Everyone,

Please notice that there is a RESERVE of $350 (Total package value: $620) that needs to be met on this package! After all, this is a fundraiser, not ebay. :wink:

On August 9th, 200+ kiteboarders from around the world converged in Hood River Oregon to make a difference in people's lives. Egos were set aside, greed and selfishness left at the curb, and everyone spent a day on and off the water to give something back. I understand that most of you didn't get the chance to be a part of this incredible event, so we thought we would bring a piece of it to you; and an opportunity for you to be a part with this live auction.

This is a fundraiser for a cause that touches all of us. Through all of our volunteer efforts as organizers and participants, we are trying to raise as much as possible for the cancer programs that KB4C has teamed up with that are making direct differences in people's lives: Children's Healing Art Project, Celilo Cancer Center, the Art Therapy Program at Children's Hospital in Seattle, Washington, and The John Wayne Cancer Foundation. If you believe in making a difference in people's lives, then please place a bid. Thanks for your support!!

For more information on KB4C, our organization, and cause, please check out the blog: www.kb4c.wordpress.com.
