    Thanks for the info! Every bit from the user-end helps.

    We're still waiting for a few last payments to roll in, but if all are honored the grand total for items + extra donations = $4269.00! Well done, folks
    I'll be digging through the data shortly to write up a decent analysis like I did for the 2012 auction that can be found in our newsletter.

    A big thanks to all the donors, who took the time and effort to raise these plants just to part with them for the sake of charity. Thanks also to the bidders who are always willing to bid high for items they desire the most.

    Cheers,
    Ryan

    Two bidders (who won 5 of my auctions) were unresponsive for over a week - but both have recently PM'd me to let me know they will be paying very soon...

    In a discussion about the auction on another forum, one person mentioned that they had deliberately placed a 'higher-than-market-value' bid since it was charity & for a good cause. Was nice to see that it's not always just about getting a good deal on something.

    In a past auction one bidder made many bids that were way above "market value" with the same justification. I think his top bid on one item still stands as a record in the auctions. (you know who you are )

    NASC Tax Info

    I was curious if your software accepted the PO Box or if it required a physical address. The PO Box is easier for us but I imagine not all software packages might accept PO Boxes as a valid address?

    Just touching base to see if they are in the game plan this year....
    It was greatly appreciated last year

    This was discussed in the Dec 26, 2013 meeting. The letters are in the works.
