    Great Lakes Bid Revised:
    So as NOT to Hijack Baja's proposal post I reworked the dates based on my discussion with Altheas. I'd like to get a lock on dates (barring natural disaster, the end of UO or whatever other out of our control event that might alter it). I myself am NOT a rare's collector... I'm auction house staff but I do realize that transfer fees, bankrolling such a pixel addiction and gathering enough super nice pixel candy takes time. Majestic Oaks Auction has a long and I like to think honored spot in the UO realm. January to May is a few months space of time, above all we want this event to be secure & memorable.

    IF consensus is that you'd ALL rather see this event moved to maybe June (though this one would end 5 days short of June 1st) We'd be happy to move it back to say June 4th through the 10th. ( I want to avoid ending on Father's day, family for many would conflict)

    May 21st through May 27th 2012

    May 19th and 20th (Saturday & Sunday) It is anticipated that off shard travelers will be using this weekend to pack and travel to Great Lakes, to set up vendors, get a lay of the land etc.

    Saturday May 19th (Noon to 4 pm. CST) Volunteer Staff at the Vendor house & Auction House
    (6 pm. CST to 10 pm. CST) Volunteer Staff at the Vendor house & Auction House
    Sunday May 20th (Noon CST to around 4 pm.) Volunteer Staff at the Vendor House & Auction House
    (6 p.m. CST to 10 pm. CST) Volunteer Staff at the Vendor House & Auction House
    Sunday May 20th 8 pm. CST will be a brief mini event at the castle to welcome those to the shard who are there and distribute runebooks. There will be a teleporter link between the Castle and the Auction house for the convenience of sellers and shoppers.
    Our EM’s have offered to establish a temporary gate for the course of the event; at this writing I am uncertain where best to locate this gate.
    Also the Majestic Oaks Banner will transport between Luna Banner Park (out the south gate) and the auction house.
    To set up vendors, accept submissions for auction, two times are slotted to allow for alternate time zones. I know a few folks at the last one were England etc. My icq and email address will be available to arrange appointments.
    Vendors will all be rent free! Please pay attention to the setup, renewal 1 week rentals. We are at first going to limit to 1 vendor per seller and then work from there. No price limits for items as fees for sale come out of your pocket. Vendors may contact me via stratics forum, MOA's site, email or icq.
