Spring Fling - One month to go

Postby Worbleook » Thu Apr 03, 2014 12:21 pm

So you'd better start taking your vitamins! We can always hope to avoid that con-flu!

In other news, should you have anything to put into the auction, it would be lovely if you could fill in one of them things:

(The Shop will probably have some on the weekend too)
That way we might avoid orphaned items and weird-things-no-one-can-actually-describe-properly.

It will hopefully make things easier, especially if everything is handed in before the Auction starts.

The look of confusion on Pat's face is half the fun....

Yes, but the looks of confusion and "Wha'????" on the Auctionettes and other helpers' faces is not the fun...

We're all in favour of that look on Pat's face. There's no question there.
However, the team behind apparently likes to be able to list the items properly, so there's less confusion at the end when people throw money at them.
