Default Notice - Liquidation of Scot's (Chironiex) Banana Collection


THE AUCTION HAS ENDED - Thanks, everyone, for helping out our pal Scot!!!



With Jarred's consent, I'm posting this notice to the group to let everyone know that Scot is liquidating his entire banana collection in preparation for his move to China. Scot hopes to recoup enough funds so that he may fund his airfare and some other expenses related to the move to China where he will be involved in the noble profession of teaching children (teaching English, in this case). Scot hopes to get this taken care of promptly so that he may depart for China around July 22nd. Thus, time is of essence! Please help out to the best of your ability.

A few of us have already agreed to buy some of Scot's plants and get him started and I'm listing the rest of Scot's inventory with his approval. All purchases must be made by July 15th by 5pm Pacific.

Scot has listed his minimum selling price and this will be run sort of as an auction. If you wish to buy a particular plant outright (i.e., as if on eBay), Scot has agreed to sell it for double the listed minimum price. Edit: Once a plant has already had a bid, the Buy-It-Now price goes away and it goes to straight bidding.

Actual shipping charges will also be charged and all payments must be paid by PayPal. With such a short timeframe, Scot does not have time to wait for checks and money orders, etc.

Please e-mail Scot directly with your bids, questions, etc. at skashoon5472 (at) yahoo (dot) com (replacing where obvious with @ and .). Please be specific about what plant you are bidding on and your bid amount.

Listed below are the number of plants available, variety name, pups included with the plant, and the minimum price.

Bids are also listed below, though I might have made a mistake which can easily be corrected if you just bid more! I discussed this with Scot and agreed to post the bidders name so they can tell if they are the top bidder or not. If you don't want your name listed, let Scot know (and PM me if Scot doesn't get the message to me or I overlook it)

I just got back from taking my son to the train station (night-time trip to boy scout summer camp) and Scot updated me with some bid info and I'll include that information as I get it (current bids are reflected in the original post).

Also, I'd like to point out that Scot is selling some Musa ingens seeds on eBay. These are some rare seeds and he's paid double his starting price for some of these so hurry and get them while they're available. You can find these the following two auctions.
Musa ingens seeds - Rarest of the Rare! 50 seeds - eBay (item 290330577345 end time Jul-13-09 21:35:53 PDT)
Musa ingens seeds - Rarest of the Rare! 50 seeds - eBay (item 290330577378 end time Jul-13-09 21:36:26 PDT)

Bid high and bid often! LOL

Scot, I truly hope you have a wonderful time in China and am sure you will be a great mentor for so many young lives. I wish you the best and trust you will touch base with us from time to time. Make sure you get your hands on some really cool nanners while you are there and let us know what we are missing... Take care and stay safe....

Good luck all of you.

List has been updated about 5 or 6 times since I started it last night. I've also edited the instructions in hopes to make things run smoother so please read those again if you're thinking of bidding on something or even if you've already bid.

I was just thinking, if someone has some extra money laying around, I can start a "let's get rid of Scot" donation campaign! What do you think?

Thanks,

Harvey

Best wishes Scot.

I have always thought that one day I would end up in China for a time. I spent a couple years in South America, helping others, and had a blast. I am sure that you will find your time there very rewarding.

If I were not totally new to bananas, and had not already far exceeded my non-existent banana budget, I would pick up a few of those you are offering. I am only three hours from you here.

As it is, I can only offer you good luck and godspeed.

Scot-

I hope you have a great time in China... sounds very rewarding; it's rare the individual that actually does something great and noble. It's also great that you're sharing your fortune with the rest of us!

Cheers-

Andy

Thanks,

Harvey
I am all for that! LOL

Thank you to all of you for your bids and more importantly for your well wishes. I ask only for your patience as I am a one man show trying to get all of these un-potted, packed and delivered to UPS/USPS/FedEx, etc. It will be a monstrous task. Compounding this, we are short-handed at work, so I will not have time during the day to do any of this work. Nights and early mornings will be spent to get these out to you.

Please be sure to send your shipping address to me on your Paypal instructions if you are the winning bidder. I will do my very best to keep shipping charges to the lowest amount. Please indicate your shipping preference as it is extremely hot here in Las Vegas. Although I will do my best to package your plants accordingly, the faster you get them, the better chance for survival of the plants.

Thank you once again for your help, understanding and patience.

Scot

DITTO Scot!
I sure hope you check in here if you can. I will miss your wonderful sense of humor.
I remember you said you used to live in Wisconsin...wish I had met you. Good luck to you always.
BTW, I found a couple bucks laying around to help get you out of the country

Hi everyone, I just spoke with Harvey, who has been hard at work out in his orchard and alfalfa fields. He will be updating everything with the most recent bids after dinner. Thanks for your patience and numerous emails! Your outpouring of kindness is humbling and deeply appreciated. I hope to someday have the kids make a special thank you poster to all of my family here at B.Org We are deeply moved and forever in your debt for all of your help.
A special "Thank you" to Harvey for spearheading this effort for me. My mind is spinning with all of the things yet to do. Thank you also, in advance, to my good friend Paulie who will have the dubious task of helping me to pack and ship all of these bananas in 105+ degree heat!

Thank you Patty, I sometimes walk around the parking lot looking for dropped change, just to make this happen. lol Yes, I have lived in Wausau, Kronenwetter, Appleton and Scholfield, WI - but that was back when the glaciers were still covering half the state. hahaha

@Buzzwinder If I do get back to Rockford, I will definitely look you up! Casey's it is! I know that I will have to return for my daughter's wedding a year from now, so we will hook-up then for sure. I believe the date is July 17, 2010 so mark it down on your calendar. I will keep in touch through this wonderful site from time to time.

Note: this is a shotgun auction and the rules are being made up as we go, but I'm doing just what I think is fair, etc. I have no stake in this so I'll try to be fair to everyone.

If someone already has a bid on a plant and someone else bids double the opening price, I'm going to put that down as a bid rather than "sold" under a Buy It Now deal since that's they way it works at eBay. If Scot wants it done differently, he'll let me know later and I'll change it.

I'll try to send an e-mail (or Scot will) if they are outbid, but I may miss this so please check back every so often.

I need to get with Scot to find out when the official ending time of the auction will be.

We already had two bids for the same plant for the same amount but, obviously, the one who sent the e-mail first gets that bid. This is a manual system so the auction status will get behind from time to time since I do have farm work also. It's presently only paying a little better than this job! LOL

Thanks,

Havey
