I want this work but don't want to leave money on the table. At $12, we would clear about $2000 for the evening. Discuss.......
If the person who got this last year was so good for the price, why are they just not having them come back? "Bid" (For me anyway) is code for a way to grind the existing supplier. Realize the economy is slow, but there is room for value, as opposed to price - IMHO.
