Credit should be allocated wholly to yourself, the time and effort that you have put in setting up, running and reporting has been absolutely outstanding.

Well done David, your due a well deserved rest.

The people affected by the flood will appreciate yours efforts and the generosity of the forum users.

Wholly concur with Miveson, DM. You've co-ordinated the whole shebang. And followed up with the to-ing and fro-ing post auction.

Also a big congratulations to all those who have supported with items, with bids and eventually monetary donations.

Australians are, on the whole, a generous mob.

Hi to all donors and supporters of the recent auctions. I have received the cars that I bid for and won. The cars I received are very good and will greatly add to my collection. Please accept my appreciation and thanks for a great effort by the members of this forum who took time to help out in such a tremendous way.

Thank you, and kind regards.

Glad the cars arrived safely.

Thanks dangermouse, miveson & ember for coordinating and assisting with this auction, and everyone who donated and bid; great work.
I'm proud to be a member of this forum hobby- it's heartening to see the generosity of the average slothead !

Let's hear it for Cleveland - responsible for over one third of all money donated ! Nice work mate!!

Received my 2 resin kits from Graham (rapide) last week, awesome kits and quality is A1.
I hope I can do them justice when assembling them.
Thanks to Graham for kindly donating the 3 kits.

How about we hold an auction for the NSW labor party. Or not. :lol:

Would that be a flood relief auction as well? :)
