Tim Erp looks for the next bid during the 14th annual Ottertail Community Auction on Saturday. In addition to countless gift packages, gift certificates and unique experiences like Minnesota Twins tickets, there were a number of games that were held during the auction. One of the unique games was the bike racing game (above) in which people could bid for the right to choose a bike and see how they did in a race. The winner split the pot with the money raised in the game. The auction grossed approximately $12,000 before expenses as one of the largest crowds in several years turned out for the event.
