I just looked up the address and that's a two hour drive for me. I love Antonio, but I'm not sure if I'll make it.
ahh come on!!! It's always great to see your face at these events. we know that you always win the commute award, what's a little extra on the drive time??? Maybe Antonio will sweeten the deal if you make the trek.... VCA hint hint

Just wanted to make a quick announcement and make a request

First- we will be providing some lite snacks/food and drinks for the meeting. So all you need to bring is yourself and a cooler to hold all the coral you'll score.

Second - we have more floor space than we do seating - so if you don't want to stand, please bring a folding chair or show up early and grab on before they are all gone :)

Looking forward to hosting everyone here at VCA!

Uh, not bidding advice, but rather a request for Ef4 to specify his starting bids on each item.
Our auction style is a modified traditional approach - one item at a time, but we just keep running up the bid until only one person is left.
Then, at the end, everyone pays up and checks out. We can take cash or cards, but we do have to charge 3% extra for cards.
Therefore, the only advantage of cash is avoiding that transaction fee.
azfrag.org/about-us for a bit more.
