By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

This is a LIVE report, keep this page loaded for live updates - new images will appear as they are added.

So busy today - so no report. Preparing for the silent auction.

Most people are waiting for dinner but there are still bidders wandering around.

Geo-Literary society also have their silent auction tonight

Mineral Wines donated many things including this beautiful framed print.

And their donation of mineral wines

Matrix emerald coasters

Dr George Harlowbwins the carnegie trophiy this year

Acceptance speech

Another item in our auction

Yet again I'm on the wrong side of the fence. Glad I had a big lunch.

One of the tables. Quiet now because everyone (except me) is eating.

Pat Haynes donated a box full of 1700 pieces of micromount material

Part of the list of items in the box.

Aquamarine and smoky quartz from californis blue mine. Donated by Cal Graeber

Mindat manager Van King who has been helping with the auction

Mine lamp - Mike Bergmann donation

New auction item just added!

Silver slippers donated by Scott Brown

It seems every year I bid on a copy of this and every year I'm outbid

Bidding continues

Getting close to the end

It's a shame that those not actually present are able to bid.

I second Keith's lament. Is there any way to do such in the future?

I presume Keith you mean "unable to bid" :)

It would be difficult seeing as the format is as it is. Even bidding at the venue can be a challenge!

Hi Steve

Yes Steve. I thought I'd writ it right!! I tried too hard to avoid a double negative and ended up leaving out a negative !!

So Jolyon .. how about giving those that can't make it to Tucson, and that would be a lot of us, a chance to bid at these auctions?. Perhaps even a special auction for us (e.e.: those Mindaters that are not at Tucson...)
Especially as you are now able to make semi live updates to Mindat.

Whoever got the box off micromount material is lucky. I'm jeolous
