    Good to know - we'll make sure to get filled in on the legalese by the time we put together this year's official rules.
    Thanks!

    That has come up in our planning sessions. We'll be working with Andy and the rest of the general admin to make sure things go as smoothly as possible.

    Random crazy thought...If enough are willing we could set up a deadbeat insureance fund. If enough people mailed off a few dollars we could "take the hit" as a group and use the fund to return there money with any leftovers just going as a donation. Just a thought, feel free to ignore me .

    My work recently got fed up with the size of my email inbox and forced my to archive everything in some weird way and I'm having trouble locating any emails from over 12 months ago or else I would dig up my communications. From what I recall it is certainly easier to get authorized to ship "small seed lots" than CITES restricted and live plant material. I'll see if I can navigate the complex archive when I get a free moment...

    This would be a good idea if the 'deadbeat activity' were a significant part of the auction. Maybe my memory is selective (actually I know that it's pretty selective - it selects stuff to forget all the time ...) but last year's only (is that correct?) deadbeat was also a deadbeat the year before but none of us ever even thought to check!
    All the best,

    Just not in time..

    I'm afraid that since I'm very new to CPs, I won't have anything to contribute to this year's auction, aside from any scratch I can scrounge beforehand to purchase plants. I definately plan to become an ICPS member this year so I can get cultivating these beautiful plants and, with any luck, next year I'll have more than a fair share of plants to contribute to this noble cause. The generosity of the members of this forum will guarantee that I will have plants to contribute next years. Kudos to the kind souls of Terraforums!

    Thanks again,

    Dan

    I've only been seriously collecting for ~a year, so you can get into *all* sorts of trouble in this hobby in a very short time (omg so many little hungry mouths to feed ).
