    The ENDING of the NASC AUCTION

    Hi everybody

    Well, as I guess most of you know, there was a server glitch just minutes before the close of our Benefit Auction. I know this left a lot of disappointed bidders but it was something beyond our, and Andrew's, control. I can assure you there is nobody who feels worse about than me.

    There has been much discussion as to what to do about it. The decision is to leave the Auction bids as they are. The rules stated the auction ends by TIME...10 p.m. There is no way we could reopen the auction and "recreate" who was there at the time and have it be fair to those who high bidders at 10 p.m.

    Pretty much, no matter how we go with it, somebody isn't going to be happy. And I'm very sorry. There is no way to make everybody happy in this situation.

    Also, having a "do-over" for the end will just delay even futher getting the plants shipped out and its later into June now.

    So, we will have Andrew open the forums back up. The Auction will be CLOSED. Last legal bid before 10 p.m. is the bid that is honored.

    I hope everyone understands this was a computer thing that could have happened anywhere...including eBay. We lost out on funds because of the lost "sniping" time...and some people lost out on bidding for what they really wanted.

    But the GOOD NEWS is an awful lot of VERY generous people helped both NASC and Splinter Hill Bog.

    THANK YOU ALL for your support and understanding. We'll have Andrew open the forum up for viewing so y'all can see if you won stuff!

    It's killing me to know what my moss sold for! I couldn't believe it once it hit fifty bucks, not counting shipping!

    I wasn't going to pick out the few sparse weeds and sticks that were in it, but for fifty bucks that's the least I could do.

    At least TF is back up. I got a few things last year. I wanted a few seeds this year that I had picked out because I don't feel comfortable with big live plants since all of them are hard to care for over the winter... eh, I guess I can start my collection over from seed next year or get seeds from eBay. I don't know if I won the "Drosera starter pack" lol.

    My blood pressure shot up a few points. The suspense is the worst. I really don't care whether or not I won what I was bidding on just as long as the NASC and Splinter Hill get the cabbage!

    lol @ Michael.

    The forums are hidden right now mainly because Mr. Treasurer Dave is gathering information on the winners. It's easier for him to do under the cloak of darkness. Once he gets the info he needs, Andrew can open it up.
