    The annoying thing is that I was outbid at about 9:50 on each auction, EST.

    I hope that you guys had a better time bidding.

    I was outbid at 9:58 and rebid at 9:59, I'm just glad my old old computer decided to work right then.

    We used to have the auction end at 11 or midnight...that got complaints. lol I don't think there is ANY time ending (or zone) that will make everybody happy. So...it's gonna be mine. I know it sucks when the time is too late or too early though.

    I didn't see EST post here.

    Trust me...it is annoying to get outbid period.


    Thank you very much RSS. It is organized by the Board of NASC each year and Andrew, forum owner, kindly allows us to use TF as a "home" for the auction.

    The NASC Board is:

    Mark/Ozzy, Head of Conservation
    Arthur Yin/EmesisPFT, VP
    Jonathan/Est, Head of PR
    Dave/Schloaty, Treasurer
    JC/Xvart, Admin of Plant Materials
    Greg/Boglodyte, Member at Large

    Oh...and me.


    OH...and we have the position of Secretary open if anyone feels inspired!

    Something I have been wondering is there a general "return address" for the auctioned items that we are shipping out to people that we should put on the package? Like "NASC AUCTION, PO Box ..., Anywhere, USA 00000..." and so on?

    I would put your personal address. IF anything got returned, you should be the one who knows that it did. Our NASC address is technically Nebraska so we don't want anything going there. (Although Dave would probably say put HIS address so he gets any plants...hehe)

    Thank you NASC board members! this was so cool! and i`m glad my canadian plants were able to bring in 32$ (that`s american dollars!!! that`s 39$ canadian) Not much, but every little thing counts! I hope next year, we`ll be able to round up some more canadians, as so i can actually bid on a plant!
    Cheers!

    RSS... you stole my flytraps! Snipe a sniper, willya? All I can say is you're lucky it was farthest left on my tab bar, so I bid on it earliest (I went left to right around 9:58 bidding on everything I had tabbed).
    I know I'm repeating stuff that's already been said, but a huge THANK YOU to all mods, contributors, NECPS members, etc. who made this possible!!
