It is working just fine so far.

The only suggestion that I have at the moment on it is that in further benifit auctions, is to set a definite end date and time with a time zone stipulated. I have seen these types of auctions run on other boards before (not necessarily site benifit auctions), without that info and a lot if times it causes a lot of arguing and a big mess over who won what and what time zone was it supposed to end...blah blah blah. I also think that might bring in more people into putting their money into it and possibly higher monetary amounts if they know that information, which would only be even better for supporting this great forum!!!

Thanks for the excellent observation and suggestion. To be honest, I never considered the time zone thing. Gosh, do we use Zulu? GMT is the standard, afterall. I understand the problems that some 'auctions' might have, but this one has the unique quality of benefiting a happening little gig, and most of the players are gentlemen and the benefit objective in view is the site. Anybody that throws his hat in the ring here can expect fair treatment. There is no profit motive. This is a quality that 1919a4 board members enjoy, which varies greatly from other virtual places.

I will put some cool stuff in the box this comes in.

That would be -5 Romeo if we go by Zulu time?
The fellow made a good suggestion. But I can say most of us don't pick the fly **** out of the pepper, and this is all small stuff. I don't see any board members clawing the eyes of a competitor here. The firm close time, and specifically defined is a good thing. I also have .308 brass, berdan. Do I keep giving this stuff to the guy at the dump?

OH! Dang! I just found a bag of range debris including brass and Israeli links. Again, all 30.06, HXP and LC. Remember, the part bag of 50 BMG brass is a bonus teaser. So three bags, one all brass, one brass and links and one 20%bag of 50 BMG. Just bid per 30.06 round and the other stuff comes with it. Is this too kinky?

I've shipped our brass to members before, same terms. Can I get a witness? How did it work for you?
