CCAC Indianapolis Public Auction!
Sunday May 6th! :proud:

South Side of Indy at the Beech Grove Holiday Inn (just off the 465 Emerson Ave. Exit).

70/30 split, don't need to be a member to buy or sell. Cash, check or credit payment methods are available.

Registration starts at 8 am and the auction goes from 10 am to 4 pm.

Plants, fish, and equipment - plus a silent auction and raffle! African cichlids, killies, and livebearers are favorites. I personally will be donating some nice plants and driftwood (fissidens, some NICE manzanita, a big mopani centerpiece, and a bunch of other stuff).

If you can be there, I really hope you'll come - it's sure to be a good time and everyone will find something they enjoy!

I'm down. Any one else going?

I'll be flying into town to work on a major commercial flooring project. Its like theres cash in the floor! Maybe i'll swing by. Good luck with the CCAC. That name has a nice ring to it.

I plan on bringing some stuff by......DC

JenThePlantGeek 05-06-2007 03:25 AM

FINALLY got my car packed up!

I'm bringing:

2 drilled 20 Ls
1 10 gallon with (ugly) homemade stand
1 24" Coralife CP fixture, silver
9 box filters (7 medium, 2 large)
Donated bags of Soilmaster Charcoal and Red
LOTS of pellia (3 bags?)
Crypticorne retrosprilis
Anubias nana petite mother plant (~30 leaves)
Peacock/spikey moss
java moss
java fern babies!
Brazilian pennywort
Anubias coffeafolia
Anubias latifolia (sp?)
Hemianthus micranthemoides
Manzanita pieces
And a MONSTER MOPANI driftwood centerpiece.

Most likely other stuff I forgot...

Some of this will be donated for the silent auction, which will have rare plants and a fully ready to go 10 gallon planted tank setup. There will also be a live food culture kit which will include pretty much EVERY type of live food out there (grindles, micros, daphnia, vinegar eels, blackworms, redworms, brine, etc.). I'll be bidding on that :)

I hope everyone can make it! If you can't show up at 10 am, still come in the afternoon - we'll be doing buyer and seller registration all day long and towards the end of the day is when the prices tend to drop!

PSSST... Ohio and Illinois members! It isn't THAT far of a drive! :hihi: ;)

Jen, how did it go? I told Mike I was going to try to come in the afternoon, but we had family in from Ohio. What kind of deals did you get? Any rare stuff? Did you have a big turnout? I can't wait to go see all the stuff Mike came home with.

I'm mad I missed the auction. I would of bid on some of your stuff Jen. My girlfriend graduated on the 5th and had a big party out of town. When is the next CCAC meeting?

I'm not missing this one for anything. I'll probably donate a few things as well. I have enders coming out my ears and it's so bloody hot for shipping.

Fissidens for sure, some large trefoil-leafed java fern, probably some goodeids, vals maybe, Sagittaria pusillea, Marsilea, not sure what all I'll bring. Maybe some manzanita too! I have lots of stuff to clean out :)
