The 2014 Contemporary Longrifle Association live auction will take place on Friday night, August 15, at 5:00 PM in Lexington Kentucky. Grand Ball Room – Lexington Convention Center, 400 West Vine Street, Lexington, KY
Last year’s auction theme was the Battle of New Orleans and, thanks to all of you, it was very successful. This year will be the final Auction themed on the War of 1812 and will be broadly based on the Westward movement, Southern influences on the longrifle and the longrifle culture, and the transition of the rifle culture from the Trans-Appalachian frontier to the plains and mountains of the far west.
We have three southern themed firearms currently being built by noted CLA artists, Mike Miller, Roger Sells, and Marc Tornichio. There are of really outstanding hunting bags and hunting bag sets by artists such as TC Albert and Tim Crosby, Maryellen Pratt and Joe Seabolt, Jeanne and Rich McDonald, Don and Tina Shaver, Bill Smith, and Chris Barker. There are also knives by Scott Summerville and by Jerry Eitner.
Note the auction time has changed and it will be on Friday night. Those who cannot attend Friday can take advantage of the absentee biding process established last year.
