Title: 2018 Special Registration Number Bidding
Post by: Chris Nelson on November 14, 2017, 10:29:17 AM
Hey Folks,

So we're going to do the bidding for the special registration numbers a little earlier this year, mainly because all the proceeds from the auction are going directly to Toys-4-Tots, and they need those funds before Christmas time.

If you don't know what the bidding is for we'll explain it here.
Each year we auction off registration numbers.     So if you wanted to have the number 18-01001 you would need to come here and place a bid for that number.

You can bid on any number you like, the only stipulation is that it has to follow the setup of a regular registration number.
So the first two digits are the year, 18-
The next two are the month, 18-01
And the last three is how many have been assigned, this is where you can get creative, 18-01999 for instance.


Bidding opens today, and we'll keep this open for the next week.   So bidding ends at Noon (Mountain Time), on November 21st.

Have fun and remember that ALL proceeds will be going directly to Toys-4-Tots

Can I get a number and fill in dog information later on?   I expect to get a new puppy this spring or summer but not sure just when?

I bid $25 for #18-02006 for Odie.  I assume that the bid amount is separate from the registration fee?

Absolutely!    The only catch with doing that is you have to be very diligent in updating your registration number with the clubs that you trial with.   Otherwise they will submit your results with the number they have on file

Once everything is done we’ll add the number to your record,  then you just give us the dogs info.

We’ll send a invoice when the auction is over

Since it’s for a good cause we’ll say yes :)

But if it’s a low number for the last three digits,  the odds are it’s already taken

$50 for 18-01028 for husband’s new girl Posey (MVP POSEY named after Buster Posey San Francisco Giants catcher who wears...number 28!)

Chris I thought you said we only had the last three digits to make “our own,” that it had to start with 18-01XXX?  Or did you change that because of the good cause...

Vicki,

Chris was just giving an example of the year and month when he said it started 18-01.  It has to be a month from 01-12 after the year so hope that lets you pick the number you had in mind.

What Carole said :)

You can use anything from 01 - 12.     

Just can't use something like 18-18001

You can use the number however you like.
If you have a new dog it can be used for your new dog.
If you don't have a new dog and you want to change your current dogs number you can do that too

Here is my thought.  To register a dog with NADAC, the fee for an associate is $20 and for a non-associate it is $25. So if we bid that, then really NADAC takes most or all of the hit for the donation to the charity.  That's the  reason I bid $50 for the number I'd like to have.  I know in the past, people have bid against each other to raise money for the charity and thought that was the point.  So my bid is for me to match the NADAC donation to the charity or more, since I am a NADAC associate.

My thought exactly Richard.  I originally thought our bid would be on top of the normal fee.  But Chris said no.  So I upped my bid for the very reason you describe.

Yep, my thought as well, Marcy.  I wasn't putting anyone down for bidding what they did and hope I didn't give that impression.  I just meant that in the spirit of the season and giving and all I was trying to inspire all of us to bid more than minimum since it is going to kids!!!!

And some friendly bidding is kind of fun!!!

And my new bid for 18-01001 is $60.

No guarantee the following is accurate but it was my best shot at it.

Here are the bids as of now.

17-03261      $30

18-01001      $60
18-01028      $50
18-01234      $40
18-01818      $30
18-02006      $40
18-03131      $30
18-04248      $40
18-04517      $20
18-07004      $50
18-07140      $30
18-07150      $30
18-07777      $50
18-08021      No Bid
18-08316      $25
18-09026      $25
18-09189      $25
18-09325      $30
18-10021      $30
18-10022      $30
18-101010     $40 This is an invalid number !!
18-11111      $25
18-12025      $30

19-07777      $50
19-08358      $25

I agree with prior comments and believe my bid was low so I'm upping my bid to $30 18-12025 to go above what I would have had to pay for a regular number. A premium should be given for a custom number.

I really am torn because I also like 18-08081 but don't need two numbers.

If we're going to "sit on it for awhile" do you need to know now? Or do we just wait and eventually tell you?

I got the number for my pup, but he broke his leg two days ago and had surgery today... Crossing my fingers he can still do agility when he's all healed up (he'll be 4" dog so won't be jumping high LOL) but obviously need to wait to see how it heals and what the vet says when it does. So if he can't, I"ll hold onto it for my next dog...

Thank you all for the generous bidding on NADAC registration numbers.  And thank you to NADAC for supporting Toys for Tots in such a great way!  NADAC has always been behind the TFT fundraiser 110% and continues to come up with new and creative ways to help out.

Greatly appreciated!
