    For those who have not been to an ECC Auction, it's an EVENT.
    We have the #1 Food Vendor from Northern NJ and The City (NYC) and soon to be #1 Food Vendor from Boston...TheTacoTruck!

    For those who might need an adult beverage during the Auction we serve Yuengling on tap!!! (Coors Light too, and we may have a third choice)

    If you have never been to an ECC Auction then this is your opportunity to ask about our auction.
    If you have been to our auctions, then brag away about what you ate and drank! :D

    You wouldn't believe it if I told you...

    Today a liquor store chain on the Jersey Shore had a little fun. From 11am-1pm at one location, and then from 2pm-4pm at another, they were giving away a free shot of Tequila Avión. With the shot you received a coupon for a free taco from, parked outside of their store TheTacoTruck.

    I had FOUR tacos. :D

    I'm envisioning a graph charting the number of shots vs. the amount of taco that would end up on my shirt....

    For those of you who have not been there before and still may be on the fence, this event is unbelievable. Awesome tacos, free beer, great door prizes, awesome rare catfish and other sweet goodies for raffle.

    In regard to the auction itself, I have been to three ACA auctions and none has rivaled the selection and shear volume of lots that Bill pulls together.

    Completely worth the trip up... just make sure you have some extra tanks space or Rubbermaids set up. You'll need it for when you get back. :happy0180:

    Shots vs bidding clarity

    I'm envisioning how my ability to know when to stop bidding is determined by the number of shots - the tocos will certainly help prolong the final decision:eek:

    As many of you know ECC is the Home of The ECC Pleco/Syno Choice Raffle!
    This is a raffle where there are about 8-10 entries. If your number is called you get the choice of which bag of fish you would like. Second number called gets second choice and so on.

    Here are two of the entries...

    Synodontis Polli and Coryadoras Venezuelan Black

    Looks a lot like a (cooked) chesapeake blue crab... may be a dangerous photo to be showing off in the Baw-mer area... I'm already drooling. Can someone pass the Ol' Bay?

    :lol:
