    With under a month until we are all enjoying SFO, it's time to kick off the party with some auctions...

    What's on the block?
    An upgrade to one of the beautiful suites at the Sharaton Fisherman's Wharf for 3 nights (Thursday-Sunday). The suites are double the size of a standard room, but I'll leave it to Sharaton to say the rest...
    See a picture here: http://www.sheratonatthewharf.com/gallery/guest_rooms/presidential-suite

    IMPORTANT: You will still be responsible for paying for your original room rate in addition to whatever you bid.

    When does the auction run?
    The auction began when this point went live. Bidding will run until 23:59 MDT on February 29, 2012.

    What is the starting bid?
    These suites are going for $319 a night during the Do, but the opening big is $10

    Who can bid?
    Any KivaDo attendee is welcome to bid.

    How do I bid?
    Bidding may occur in one way, and one way only. You shall post your bid on this thread. If you want to re-bid, you MUST do so in a new point; editing posts to change your bid is a no-no and people caught doing so will be required to make loans as penance.

    What payment is accepted?
    Payment may be made through PayPal or in-person at the KivaDo, where credit cards and burlap sacks (preferably with '$' on the side) of cash will be accepted.

    Who won?
    Stephen with $325

    Yes, you can, especially if it is part of your plan to turn it into a hospitality suite for everyone if you win! :D

    We should break up this auction into smaller ones. Like I will pay the winner $30 for use of one of the robes for the weekend, and $20 if I need to put pizza in their fridge.

    Well, I was going to bid higher until I learned that Dreamworks would be walking around in the suite wearing a robe and eating pizza. Have fun with that jbcarioca :)

    You can keep the suite as long as I can use the fridge :D

    this is very generous of you, and not even sure how to accept :)

    You bid $325 for it, sir, it is yours!
    If indeed you do not want it, I suggest we match each other for $325 each payable to the MilePoint Kiva Lending Team Mutual Fund Donation category. That we might do anyway, even if you do want it!

    As long as I've got a bed I am happy, I did it to get the ball rolling as much as anything :)

    Plus with the schedule they've thrown at us, it isn't like we will be spending long in the room anyway. I am still in for the $$ without a doubt, that is why I bid afterall.
