Here are our details, Is this acceptable? I have lots more information about how MOA works etc. Not sure what to include. Did not attempt to post as I believe this needs approval from committee first. More games etc may be snuck in as I can nail people down to a firm committment.

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 Nov. 6th 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.

We'll be back from our annual close down from December 16th to January 4th. OR Monday April 9th Through Sunday April 15th. Easter is April 8th... it would be Good Friday, Passover, Easter Weekend traveling time Auctions Saturday the 14th and Sunday the 15th With regular MOA on the 12th. All other things would remain the same. Now this is leaving a few if's in the mix, UO has to still be here, natural disasters etc its a long way out but Baja wants January so we're trying not to compete or step on toes.
