I agree, this sounds like fun, and a painless way to score some donations.  A 
couple of "white elephant" donations would probably liven things up, although 
we wouldn't want to overdo it.


  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
