Some preliminary news on this auction, as I am still trying to get folks notified of their winning lots. The auction had 1803 bids by 34 bidders. Thank goodness for the programs I wrote to handle these auctions smoothly. I believe all but 1 bidder won at least 1 lot. [The member who was "shut out" submitted only 3 bids.] As expected, the Indian States drew very heavy bidding, but it was lot #85 (Elobey #1) which drew the largest number of indiviual bids, 16. I have not computed the total of the winning bids, but the club will certainly get a boost. These auctions always give me a bit of mixed emotions. I hate to see a member move on in a different direction, but I always enjoy seeing the remaining members fill in some spaces in their albums.
