I’m very much looking forward to it. Thank you for the opportunity, Directrix!

Can bidding be done anonymously? Just asking for clarification.

I, Nauplius, request an invitation to this event.

If people specifically ask when they place a bid, ok.
But in the end the winners will be announced.

Ohh So fun!!

The honor of such fine upstanding ladies must be upheld. I shall bid so hopefully they may remain in polite and respectful company.

Question. Would I be so bold to ask if its possible to win more than one dance partner?

Very Respectfully,

Kyle Saltz

In response to a few questions expressed in different venues/contexts:

  1. Bids are made by neocomm mail to me IN ADVANCE of the ball. The deadline is August 7th 23:59.
  2. You can bid more than once.
  3. You can bid anonymously but winners will be announced at the close of bidding.

Also, first bid list update!

Updated. As a note, a bidder can only win one auctionee. So in cases of a tie, i’ll drop to the 2nd highest and so on until ties are resolved.
