    Unfortunately, the rune and book was removed from the GoF vendor house. I'm not entirely sure why or when, so please, if you're looking to enter the tournaments, contact me either here, on gl.uorpc, in game or in ICQ. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me in game. I'm sorry for the inconvenience..

    I want to thank all of Great Lakes for making this event such a huge success! Because of you and all your contributions, this event was not mine, but yours. It was truly a community event for the players BY the players.
    We had nearly 50 different people in attendance and with over 110 mill given away (not to mention some nice high/er end items!), I am happy to say it was a MAJOR success!
    Thank you all for everything; contributions, support and well wishes.

    A VERY special thank you to; MOA, Nails, UORadio, Celebrindal, Zandor, Dai.. for either your time, support and/or contributions.

    I only hope to do more for Great Lakes and more for all of you, the players. Please keep an eye out, as I will be having MORE events in the near future! (Already have 2 in the works! hehe)

    The Gala Auction brought in 1,504,000,000 gold
    No item in the auction began with a minimum bid over 1 mil so bidding was intense.
    A special thank you to all who came out to bid! To my fellow auction staffers:
    Anthony our Gater! without whom many of you wouldn't have made it.
    DJ Scorp the auctioneer, Princess Melody the broker and Melian the Cashier.
    Another shout out to Nails who handled the off shard transfers and payments requested of him Thank you!!
    Top selling item was of all things a Booger Brush with the winning bid of 310 million going to Escaflowne
    Top spender went to Griff purchasing the Brother Pemenards Rope of Binding (60m), Flint's Masquerade (100m),
    Royal Sand Miner Sash (25 m), A Purple dragon scale (125m), and A Daemon Scale (100m)

    and of course Escaflowne got the closer the Booger Brush at 310m
    We had one false bid which was on the Death Maze Survivor bid was (60m) bidder never paid and the
    item was returned to the seller.

    About 4- 5 mil in trivia was given away (to buy time for the cashier to catch up)
    winners were Bowtruckle, Dread, Shadius (2 I think) and if I missed someone I'm sorry my notes are at the grocery store!
    A great time was had by all!
    Thanks again to all who attended, worked and planned!
