Well, great news. After almost three years, we are announcing that Osage Roost will once again do a fundraiser auction to support this expense of maintaining the site .

As you all know—this is a totally free site, free of dues or advertising.  That’s the way I created it, and that’s the way I want it to continue to keep it clean. However, there are monthly costs to keep the site going.  Almost three years ago—the members here presented me with the idea of the callmakers and collectors to support these cost. Callmakers and Collectors donated calls and gear to auction off to support Osage Roost. All proceeds go entirely to maintaining the site.  It was greatly appreciated at the time. The funds raised from that first auction have kept expenses paid for almost three years now.
 
With that said, the moderators are planning the second auction to create operating funds to move onward sense the account is getting low on funds. We plan to start the auction on Sept 5, 2014. All funds are kept in a separate account set up in someone else’s hands other than mine to keep all above board. The account is kept balanced and accounted for any funds going in or out in case any member has concern about how it is handled.

The announcements about the details of the auction will be posted here soon, I just wanted to inform all the members of our intentions and show the appreciation for letting the site take care of the expense instead of myself.

Anyone can participate. You do not have to be just a callmaker to donate. Anyone with a call or a hunting item that wants to participate by donating to the cause for the site to support itself is greatly appreciated. This is a great site and one we all benefit from it in one way or another. It’s a great show to see the callmakers/collectors donate to support the continuation of this friendly/supportive site.
I wanted to announce this second auction early enough for makers to plan ahead if they want to create something for the auction. I know how time is for you guys.

With the success of the first auction, I can hardly wait to see the calls and items for sale for us to bid on….

Thanks for the support and the donation and thanks for making OsageRoost what it is today!
