    We have an updated class and training schedule, speaker list, donor list and sponsor list. We have worked hard to make this a fun informative conference.

    We will be having Ebay auctions to raise money and I am personally donating a quilt.

    I will post a reminder when we put the auctions up.

    I hope to see some BYCers there. We will have a great time and learn alot about our webfooted friends.

    Just as an aside, in my Etsy Shop, I have a section for Duck Rescue Network. At least half of the proceeds from this shop will be sent directly to Duck Rescue.

    Thanks!

    Beautiful quilt, Terrie. Wish I lived closer to N.C. as I would go.

    I love that quilt!!!

    I'm about 2 hrs from Charlotte, but cannot afford the price, regardless of how much I love our feathered friends.

    No, I meant they are live on Ebay. We have been planning these auctions for months, so when I say they are live, I mean they are up and running! We hope to have a couple laptops connected to the internet, so attendees can bid throughout Friday and Saturday, but we are not sure if that will work. Also, shipping will not be a factor if you pick up your win on Sunday at the conference.
    Asher, I think there are spaces for individual classes for a lesser cost if there was just one class that interested you. send email to [email protected] for more info.
