WARNINGl Humble Brag To Follow
Gold River Productions (who owns The Daily Gold) has made it possible for the Campbell River Rotary Club to broadcast the annual auction live on the internet. In 2000 the Rotary Club attempted to broadcast the auction live on the internet so they could reach out of town bidders and local residents that did't subscribe to cable.
Unfortunately, the technicians at Shaw Cable were not able to figure out how to stream the auction with anything less than a 15 second delay. A delay of that length for a live auction simply wasn't going to work.
In 2001 the Rotary Club reached out to Russ Wagg (co-owner of GR Productions) and asked if we could solve the problem. After a few days a trial and error, we were able to come up with a solution. We have been helping the Rotary Club with the auction every year and are happy to report that a substantial amount of money is raised every auction as a result of viewers who are watching the auction on their computers.
The auction takes place Nov 17 and 18th. To see what items are available and to watch the auction live, please click the link.
