The 2020 One Fly Auction is Virtual This Year!!!

While we may not be on the river together this year due to Covid-19, we are excited to host a virtual gathering of the One Fly community and provide a chance to support our wonderful foundation.   So, grab your favorite cocktail and join us from 6 pm - 7 pm on Friday, September 11th at our usual live auction hour and bid on some amazing items in our first ever virtual live auction!   What’s more, for all those who attend the live auction event, we will have cameos from some very special guests and some very exciting news to announce about next year’s tournament!

 

How do I register for the Silent & Live Auction?

Jackson Hole One Fly will be using Handbid, a well known mobile silent auction platform that allows you to bid from your smartphone.  (For a Handbid tutorial on using mobile bidding apps, please click here.) 

BEFORE THE SILENT AND LIVE AUCTION BEGINS!

FROM YOUR SMARTPHONE: 

STEP 1:  DOWNLOAD THE HANDBID APP 

If you have an iPhone or Android, you can download the Handbid app from the Apple iTunes App Store or the Google Play store

(Please note we strongly recommend you “accept notifications from this app” when you open it and join an auction. This will allow you to get push notifications for “Outbid” messages during the auction.)

 

STEP 2:  SIGNUP

Next, create an account. From the app home screen, tap on “GET STARTED” button and complete the information (please use your cell phone number - this is important as this is the number your notifications will be sent to). Tap NEXT

Handbid will text you a 5 digit code.  Enter this code to login. 

Once you are logged in, select Jackson Hole One Fly from the list of auctions and START BIDDING!

 

STEP 3:  START BIDDING

Whether you are bidding online or in the Handbid app, here are some easy tips to help:

  • MAX BID:  This is the maximum amount you are willing to spend for an item and the Handbid system will automatically bid for you until you reach your max.  Set a max bid and enjoy your evening!

  • NOTIFICATIONS: If you have downloaded the Handbid app and accepted push notifications, you will be notified when you are outbid on an item.  If you don’t accept push notifications, you will receive text messages from Handbid.

  • DASHBOARD: Monitor what you are currently winning and losing on the dashboard screen in your app or online. 

 

No smartphone? No problem! 

Want to bid from your PC or Mac at home?
Just head to our auction website   to register, and start bidding!

 

The Live Auction will be streamed via the HandBid online/mobile app during the previously mentioned timeframe above.   Therefore, in order to access both the Silent & Live Auction Event, all you need to do is follow the above download and registration instructions and you will be ready for both auctions.   

If for ANY reason you are having difficulty registering or downloading the app,  please contact Sue Bashford or John Holland for immediate help.  We want to make sure everyone has the ability to participate.

 

On behalf of the JHOF Auction Committee and Foundation, we thank you in advance for your continued support.
