I need help! Wife delivering baby! Trombonists near Cleveland or Akron!

Post by SlideCrook »

I need help from someone near Cleveland or Akron Ohio.

I won a few auction items through an Auction House called All Around Auctions in Valley City, Ohio, where they liquidated a music store.

I won a new King 606 trombone, plus a few other odds and ends. By the terms of the auctions, I had to put in a debit card during registration. I’ve paid for the items. I had every intent of driving there to pick the items up. No, a King 606 is nothing to rave over, but I bought it to upgrade my 7th grader’s trombone.

The pickup time for this auction ends this Saturday, and I cannot make it, as my wife went into labor and we just delivered a 7lb 8oz baby boy! We live a few hours from there, and I can’t afford child support that will come from the day trip from me going to pick it up a day or two after the birth of our new baby.

My humble request is that someone from the Cleveland or Akron Ohio area can go pick the items up for me. Auction terms state that the items can be picked up with a paid-in-full receipt, which I have, and can send the willing soul.

My plan is for you to hold onto the items (trombone, mouthpieces, a trombone stand) for a week or two until I can come get it.

You hold the trombone and other items as collateral, and I can give you a case of beer or a bottle of bourbon and gas money for your troubles.

Please let me know if you can help.

Evan

I know a trumpet player in the area who would be happy receiving alcohol as payment. I'll PM you, you can say you got his name from me.

I picked up the trombone and the other items this morning. Glad to help a fellow trombonist, and get some free beer too!

It is nice to see trombonists stepping up. But, Greg, you need to watch your waistline... by sharing that beer. Just a thought!

:shuffle: I'm glad that things have gone well with this; I was a little concerned when I read the original post. With all the recent scammer warnings we were expected to trust someone called "SlideCrook"!!! :shuffle: :good:

What a benevolent and trusting lot we have on this forum.

Cheers
