Re: NFC: First 1999 NFC Online Auction Items - 2nd Update

Thusday morning E-auction update.  Note that only the high bids are 
listed, so if you want one of the items, you will have to outbid the 
competition !

BTW, yesterday I accessed Mike Reed Enterprises' website 
(http://www.mreed.com/).  They sell frozen foods, flake foods and live 
foods from their website and also advertise in the major fish mags.  I 
noted that they sell the same 2 lb lots of redworms which are up for bid 
in the NFC E-auction (about 2000 worms in 2 lbs), which can also be used 
for composting of food scraps for recycling purposes.  However, they 
charge FORTY BUCKS ($40) bucks for the same amount of worms, and 
shipping charges are extra.  All four of the current bids are only half 
price of the retail value of the worms, so bidders might want to 
consider upping the ante a bit.

Bids recorded as of 9:00 am 01/21/99.  Please note that the lot content 
is somewhat different than Robert's original posting, so feel free to 
submit revised bids in accordance with the lots described below.  
Remember that only the highest bids get the item(s) !!!!
