NFC: OFFICIAL Semi-Final Results: First 1999 NFC Online Auction

Last post (01/29/99)was in error.  I was hurrying to get out of the 
office and hit the send button accidentally while updating the bids, 
then couldn't get back on.  Net server came back on line at 9:00 a.m. on 

THIS POST IS THE OFFICIAL ONE.  Results are semi-final as all bids are 
final EXCEPT for bids on the worms, due to there being a lack of four 
high bids separate from the rest.  Currently we have 3 at $30, 3 at $25 
and 1 at $20.  The three $30 bidders have one lot of worms and the 
remaining lot is up for bid by the remaining bidders.
>LOT #1: FOUR ITEMS:  (4)  2 lb pkgs live redworms delivered.
>Retail value $40 plus shipping for each package per online price of 
>redworms from Mike Reed Enterprises (http://www.mreed.com/). These 
>redworms can be used to compost vegetable scraps to make high quality 
>compost in addition to being used as fish food.
