This just in from the plants:

Dear Ozzy,
We, the Sarracenia flava clump, do hate travelling so. Wouldn't you please consider letting us stay in Ohio? I'm sure the kind gent bidding on us will take decent care of us and the winters aren't that dreadful, truth be told. We're sure your place is just as lovely, though.
Tulips and buttercups,
The Sarracenia flava

Dear Sarracenia flava,

I'm sure you don't want to spend your winters cooped up in a garage or buried under a mound of straw and snow. Instead you can spend all winter resting in 50 to 60 degree weather. Instead of 4 or 5 LONG months of winter , here you will only have 2 to 3 short months. I've seen it snow up there as late as May 28th. So you can be putting up your flowers and mating with all you Sarracenia neighbors instead of sitting in the corner of a dark garage waiting for the the short summer to finally arrive. You will spend March through September growing before beginning your short winter nap in November. During your summer you will have plenty of bugs to eat. There's a reason that more than 20 species of your cp buddies live here. It's perfect for you and all you have to do to live in this paradise is take a short 12 hr drive through the scenic Appalachian Mountains. Beside I don't know if I'd trust the guy trying to keep you trapped in Ohio, he's probably the type that'll cut off your flower just for the power trip.

Flytraps and sundews,


PS $24

Winner should contact the lister/donor within three days to make shipping arrangements. Payment for the ITEM WON will go directly to Sheila Stewart, Treasurer for NASC (see payment methods and address above); please do NOT send ITEM payment to the seller! But DO remit any shipping fees directly to the seller. Once Sheila has received payment for an item, she will notify the donor (and copy the bidder) that s/he can ship the item; the donor should have received shipping fees by this time. Donor has 14 days to ship the item once NASC has received payment.

PAYMENT FOR A WON ITEM: Payment can be made by personal check, money order, cashier's check or Paypal. Make your checks out to North American Sarracenia Conservancy; send your total payment amount to:

NASC Treasurer
ATTN: Sheila Stewart
PO Box 43
Wesson, MS 39191

Paypal to treasurer (at) nasarracenia (dot) org as "Goods, other". Please make sure you use the "note" function and title it "AUCTION" along with ALL other pertinent information listed below...so Sheila (catrus) will know what payments are auction related and for which items/seller.

When you send in your payment, you MUST include the following information:

1) Your real first and last name
2) Your TerraForums ID (if a member)
3) Phone number and email address *just in case* we need to contact you
4) a) full list of EACH Item you won and are paying for
b) Ending bid (price) of EACH item
c) The FORUM name or email of the donor (so they can be notified to ship!)

If you are MAILING a payment in, please use this handy PDF form. Print it out, fill it in with the above information and send with your payment: http://www.nasarracenia.org/wp-conte...-form-2012.pdf (Please note that this is an old form. Send your payment to Sheila Stewart at the address above.)

Any "mystery payments" (no identifiers) will be refused by NASC and returned to the sender.

SHIPPING FEES: The LISTER (DONOR) will choose who pays the shipping on their item. He/she may offer to pay shipping OR require the bidder to pay shipping costs; this information MUST be disclosed in the listing information so the bidder knows prior to bidding who will pay the costs. Shipping fees (as accurate as possible) and/or restrictions should be clearly posted in the listing (item topic); shipping costs can be estimated. Seller/donor should take all care possible to ensure their item is well packed and will arrive in good shape.

PAYMENT/SHIPPING POLICY: No item will be shipped until payment has been received. Each winner will have 30 days from the close of auction to remit payment to NASC and any shipping fees to the donor (seller). Items must be shipped to winners within 14 days of receipt of payment. If item payments are not received within the 30 day time allowance, the bid is voided and the next highest bidder will be offered the item at their highest bid. The same time allotments apply to each winner bidder if previous bids have been voided. Insurance will be at the request and expense of the buyer.

Please post here any updates to your auctions. Please post when payment is made, item shipped and item received.

Thank you
