Thanks for posting this, Gerald; I really wanted to make it down to this one but I'm obligated to the Big Fish Deal up in Maryland this weekend. I hope it all goes well in Raleigh; have a great time!

We were a bit worried about attendance, with Big Fish Deal and NE Council that same weekend, but we actually had very good attendance, and auction bid prices on Sunday did NOT drop off toward the end of the auction as sometimes happens. I ran out of time to bag things for the auction, and wish I had brought more items to sell!
