    Changes to original proposal are highlighted in red.

    REVISED AGAIN!! SPRING 2012 PROPOSAL APRIL 28th to May 7th
    It is my understanding Baja has opted to take a fall date. We would love to host on Great Lakes have begun preparation of space and events. April was the time slot requested by a frequent rare's buyer, this is the time frame that works best for our staff around spring break, vacations and real life. It is our intent to make this a full out festival, not just auctions, vendors and shopping, but events and activities for those who wish to partake.


    Rare’s fest Great Lakes Proposal:

    Host: Majestic Oaks Auction House
    Dates: April 28th to May 7th 2012(with pre event for the 28 & 29 travel days)
    Vendor house: Majestic Oaks Auction Castle on Artic Isle (Owner is Pratt)
    Majestic Oaks Pub on Artic Isle behind the castle (if needed, Owner is Melian)
    Auction house: Majestic Oaks Auction at the Buc’s Den Portal, Vesper End
    Auction Dates: Thursday May 3rd, Saturday May 5th and Sunday May 6th
    Majestic Oaks Auction House staff: GM: Pratt, Managers: DJ Scorp, Emerald Ice, Melian,
    Co-owners: Pratt, DJ, Emmy*, Melian*, Princess Melody*, Logan*, Illyana Strange*(these are the only folks who have access to items submitted for sale) Majestic Oaks has been running live auction/s weekly for 10 year with half of our staff having been here that entire time.
    Other members and support staff: Lola, Elektra, FlapJack, Chelle, Just A Girl
    * Indicate staff who worked the last GL rare’s fest at Majestic Oaks.
    MOA staff will be in uniforms with guild tags on display, items can only be accepted AT THE AUCTION HOUSE and in the PIT

    Arrival & Set up:
    April 28th & 29th (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 April 28th (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 April 29th (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 April 29, 2012 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 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 via stratics forum or (pm), MOA website (pm), or icq. I'd suggest a couple of contact methods, I will contact folks as soon as I can.

    Majestic Oaks Auction has agreed to waive our customary sales fee for our auction services so all proceeds from any auctioned items will be returned to the seller. This is an all volunteer effort by our staff.

    Silent Auction preparations are in the works, I am attempting to work out logistics with Lineman and/or Shu-Chan to run this during the same week so patrons will have a choice and we can get as many items as humanly possible as much exposure to sale as we can.

    Itinerary: (These items will put NO items at risk, will likely be hosted by Great Lakes Supporting guilds and MOA. They may change as plans finalize)

    Monday, April 30, 2012 “Night at the Museum” event Guided tour of Great Lakes Museums & points of interest

    Tuesday, May 1, 2012 EM event night (Tuesday is typically UO Fiction event night typically a good place to die)

    I don't support anything that isn't a Silent Auction.

    sounds good to me, much better then my ill recieved seige rares fest idea :)


    live auction to me is much better then a silent auction where the people submiting items are asking 2-3 times the items real value as there reserve.
