The AC set could be handled separately from the convention auction, perhaps
with an ad in AC or other means. It has the potential to fetch a decent bid
and should probably be made available to all members so the person that
wants it most can get it. But I'm not on the BOD and don't pretend to speak
for them. This is just my opinion.

Michael, no offense intended (please...), but that'll probably be annoying
to some people on this list. How about doing it offlist-- only updating the
people who actually bid (if you get any bids, that is!) or people that ask
to be included on your bid list? Maybe first you could post a more detailed
list of auction items. Or maybe nobody's interested in this...I don't know.

It's fair that anyone bidding should be aware thay they'll have to pay
postage. It's great that you're willing to do this!
