    That's what I thought, Casper. Talk to Barry or Carl and verify. We do not want trouble over this, and I have a lot more plants to share. Thanks for the heads up you guys,we'll
    check on it. I still would like for one of you to have these plants.

    I have a few plants I can put up for auction,just let me know when.One thing I have to say,please don't send plants to people in envelopes,send them in boxes.That way when somebody wins the plant, it does'nt get smashed going through the post office.I'll send out my plants in boxes,and gladly pay the $3.85 it costs to ship!

    I love the idea of an auction but who will collect the money, how will it be held, spent, etc.

    What is the current structure of the organization? Who has what responsibilities?

    I think it would be good to add a forum listing who is responsible for what and who is currently activly involved.

    Lets truly get organized, develop a plan and go go go.

    There is a lot of enthusiasm for this. It would be a shame to not organize and mobilize while this is still going strong.

    I'm sorry if I sound negative, I don't mean to. Maybe my questions have already been answered in a post somewhere, but I don't think so.

    Bugweed, you seem to be the leader so far, am I missing the posts?

    Looking forward to the auction.

    You may be missin' something, Glenn. I am not in charge, I handed that to Casper because he has the resources to get us going, and he has the organization to move us along. You just keep sending suggestions. We are trying to take care of all this, but one step at a time. I am only an advisor, as is Carl, and Barry at this time. And since no one else stepped up to challenge the pro-tem pres. We are just going to keep it this way unless someone else thinks they can do it better. I just want to get this thing going, and I know PAK is working on our mission statement and other things as well. So Casper is President, or Chairman, or whatever, but he is moving us along. We are attempting to set up our by-laws and a host of other things, so don't be like me, be patient instead. And please, Glenn, keep your thoughts coming,OK? we need every one of them!

    I believe the money will be sent to Casper, who will deposit the money in a checking account until we get enough.

    I would like to suggest that public notice of the auction with all pertinent information be announced as soon as possible. I don't want to spring it on anybody...we need to give people time to think if they have something to offer up. Also I'm not sure that short of a time frame is realistic...not everybody logs onto the forums every day and we'd probably get more bids if it were open longer.
