They do this at my wife's family reunion and sometimes
the same items are brought back year after year and
bought and traded back and forth. It has become a lot
of fun to see who gets the "trophy" this year. Also it
brings in quite a bit of money with which they buy the
food for the next reunion and maintain the upkeep of
the family cemetery. It is great fun and a great idea.
I volunteer to bring a couple of ammo boxes for the
auction if we have one. Maybe even fill them so they
are ready to go caches!!! :O
