The Reef Network Announces First Silent Frag Auction
Saturday February 28th
11:00 - 15:00
16655 64th Ave.
Surrey BC
V3S 3V1
Club house (http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=V3S+3V1&mrt=loc&sll=49.118911,-122.756553&sspn=0.016656,0.04549&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=16&iwloc=addr)

Because of the cost of the building The Reef network is asking for $1 admission fee

In efforts to change it up and have some fun, it was decided to throw another Frag auction. This one will be quite different.
It will have the format of a silent auction.
Format:
- each seller is to e-mail a photo to The Reef Network (reefnetwork@gmail.com) of each mother colony they are selling frags of. Please indicate how many frags of each you will be selling
- Auction sheets along with the photos will be stationed around the room for all to enter their bids.
- Auction will end at predetermined time and winning bidders will collect their new Frags from the frag owner. Auctions will end through out the day. Each table will have a published end time

With the pieces for auction, will all of them be displayed at once and the closing bids be all at the same time? Or will there be intervals?

Just I usually have to pack em up and try to get back to Kamloops, and February with temperature laying in the balance. Just trying to decide if this is something I can make work into a feasible trip or if I should wait until the next auction.

Good Idea. We could stagger the auction end times to accomidate peoples schedule.

I will work on how this can work.

Coming back from Kamloops again as a buyer (I'd come back as a seller, but I grow too fond of my corals). Thank you to the reef network for allowing us outsiders to still be a part of these events. Not only do I like coming to get frags, I always come out with a whole head full of new ideas and knowledge. The people that make up this network are a strong resource for ideas and solutions.

The final plans for the auction were completed at last nights REEF NETWORK Dinner.

The auction will be held in the Clubhouse of my townhouse complex.

16655 64th Ave.
Surrey BC
V3S 3V1

the event will start at 11:00 am and the auction bidding will close at 3:00 pm Saturday February 28, 2009. It will probably take an hour or so to go through each of the items to determine the successful bidders.

For those of you on the fence about coming, there are quite a few corals being auctioned ranging from Zoa, Palys, LPS, SPS, and even some Softies.

It's shaping up to be possibly the widest variety of coral so far

Just a note to mention some of the stuff I had planed on selling.

I'll be selling some pretty nice zoas/paly's , such as Red Lunar paly's / rare Red Devil paly's ( look kind of like Darth Maul zoaid.com )/ my ultra bright Pink Martini paly's aka ( AOG )/ a nice size frag of silver,green and purple Ausie acan, as well as a few other nice zoa frags Purples / blues etc.

Should be a fun day and I look forward to meeting everyone.

Thanks for putting this event on Reef Network.

Thanks to the Reef Network for putting on a great frag auction. I appreciate all the work you guys had to do to put this event together. It was unfortunate the turn out was not very good. But the deals were amazing. Purple death palys sold for 5-8 $ per polyp where they normally sell for $40 per polyp or more. Red Devil palys that sell for $15 per polyp sold for $20 for a 6-7 polyp frag. And there was even better deals on other frags that were sold as well. So many different types of SPS at fantastics prices The purple monster was my favorite. Superman monti for $10 Score!!!


With a low turn out like today, would it be worth Reef Network to even bother hosting another event?

Anyhow it was nice to meet some new faces and chat with everyone. Thanks again.

Cheers

Wow, I am surprised to hear the turn out was low :(

I thought for sure it would be packed. I obviously missed it since I had found some deals on stuff I wanted at tank shut downs today but would have still liked to have made it...just didn't work time wise.

How many people are we talking??? Was it really that quiet?

Well if you go by how many people posted that they were planning on attending. Yes it was low. But it was still a decent turn out with new faces. So that's always possitive. It's a fair amount of work to host an event. And for the people selling their frags ,the cutting ,the bagging etc etc it takes time too. I just wonder if it is worth it for everyone that's all. :) It is for me personally but I enjoy these events.

I want to say thanks as well. As somebody fairly new to the hobby it was nice to meet a few of the Canreef folks. It was also great to score some fantastic deals to help fill out the tanks. The low turn out was probably a disappointment for the sellers who most likely did not get as much as they wanted for their frags and all the effort they made to bring them out. It was definitely a buyer's auction. But I hope that doesn't stop the Reef Network from organizing more of these as I am sure that was the exception rather than the norm. I don't keep SPS but if I did I would have been thrilled as there was such a great selection of frags that went for a song.

Thanks again to the network. I was shocked to see the low turnout. I'm almost disappointed that more did not make the effort. The amount of time and attention the network puts out there to make these events happen was greatly appreciated, especially from us out of towners.

But there loss meant I took more home. So thank you to that. I still feel a bit guilty for the prices I came home with. (Overtime I'll get over it:biggrin:). I hope that in the fall I will actually come back as a seller with some of my LPS pieces. And since it seems some of the West Coasters do not want to be part of not just a good place to get some well worth pieces, but the overall social experience, I will bring more of the interior hobbyists with me as well.

Thanks again everyone. Awesome stuff I brought back. I must now glue them down before they go missing.

I had fun...and my thanks to the organizers. I think that room is really great for events, Tom. (too bad it's so far from everywhere, eh?)

I came back with more coral than I brought with me...and left some money behind as well.

As my feedback, I think that the silent auction was very successful and much more efficient than the live auction. The photos are a great idea. (I would suggest smaller photos since we needed more space) Next time, maybe we only need 2 hours. Limit to two frags per type per person. That way, there could be 1 close in 1 hour, then the other close in the 2nd hour.

That's just my feedback for consideration. It was certainly a fun and well run event as is.

Some good points, Brad.

I would also suggest perhaps cycling a sale every half hour or so to keep things moving and fast paced. It was basically sitting around for most of the time and then two minutes of frantic bidding and then repeat.

That room is awesome for this type of event. Special thanks to TomR.

It would be interesting to hear why people decided not to go.

I was with a friend from the forum and we had planned to go but in the end just spent most of our money in the morning at a tank shut down. To be honest we figured it would be super busy. Still figured the deals would be amazing but just never made it.

I just got the call to work tomorrow so I won't be able to go. :sad:

I hope everyone posts lots of pics so those of us who can't make it can catch a glimpse of how it was.

Well work today wasn't much fun...actually it sucked. :mrgreen:

Sounded like there were a few of you, I hope this doesn't affect future events. I was expecting to hear that it was packed and I was hoping it was going to create a desire for a event every three months instead of six. You guys can sign me up for the next event and I'll volunteer to help set up of what ever is needed.

I hope someone took some pics to show us what we missed and to make sure we get our buts to the next one.

Working all weekend so no auction for me. In fact, it's after midnight & I'm still editing papers & will be for another 2 or 3 hours at least.

Sounds like it would have been a lot of fun.

Yes Thanks everyone for coming out. Despite the low turn out it was good to chat about our tanks and hang out with friends

Ouch, worked till 4:30am. Still would have been nice to pick up a few new pieces for my "whole in the wallet".

Glad you all had a good time. Even though my work often keeps me from participating in these events, its great for the local reefing community that there is the Reef Network & guys like TomR & Jason McK who are willing to put in the time to organize great events like these.

OK I got home last night and acclimated everyone. Cripes guys, I thought I only bought about 6 or 8 pieces. I have at least 20 frags!! Made myself a nice new frag rack and its already full!! I'll have to take a photo to show my ridiculousness :razz:
