$20?

I'm not sure how the bidding goes. I think I need help.

If 6 groups bid $20 & there are no more bids, then all 6 go for $20, right?

What if one more bid comes in for $25 and that is the last bid?

How do we come up with 6 owners?

Can you tell that I am not up on Horse Racing?

I think we will make the minimum bid determination the day of the auction when we can determine how many bidders we are likely to have. If we only have 6 bidders then likely they will sell for minimum. If we have many bidders we will start with a low minimum and sell them to the highest bidder just like any other auction.

Remember all; this is about increasing participation, not about collecting a zillion dollars, this is supposed to be about fun, not money... I'd like to see them low so that individual bidders can be able to participate and not be at the mercy of groups who might have 20 or more members...... Just my 2 cents.

And to you individuals who might not be able to prevail in the auction, we have a plan for you too!!! Ask me or any other volunteer at the meeting and we can lay it all out for you (I'd prefer not to do it here). Do not be intimidated, this is all about getting together to socialize, have a cocktail and generally experience something that you may not have ever seen before. It is sure to be a talked about event.
