The moderator may want to move this to the SSA thread but b/c we're doing this for the first time, wanted to at least announce in a different thread.
The ATA Annual meeting regularly offers a SSA, but historically, this has been more in the form of a silent auction available to attendees only. This year however, so many SO's have graciously stepped forward we wanted to open this up to the public b/c some of these stallions will not be available in the regular online SSA we hold after 1st of the year.
This SSA will close promptly at 9 pm CST (Central Standard Time) on Sat so this is a short turn around for the SSA. Will be a really good way to get a good deal on a breeding for 2012 season.... Good luck to all bidding!
Oh thanks for pointing out the different times OMare! I'll have the web person double check it!
But yes, those at home will need to put in their bids and not wait till the last second (I think there was discussion that you could put in a "max" bid kind of like EBay but not positive that this worked out?).

The "max" bid couldn't be programmed in time so won't be applicable @ this Annual Meeting SSA - again this one's different from the SSA we do in February (that one w/b advertised in the Stallion issue of COTH as always).
Thanks again Omare for letting us know of the discrepancy.
