DATE: 18 MARCH, 2017 PLACE: WATTENSAW WMA CLUBHOUSE Due to the decline in fur prices expected for this coming season the EAFT Executive Committee has decided to suspend our Annual Fur Sale Auction AND INSTEAD have a general fellowship with FUR BUYERS attending to deal FACE-TO-FACE with those member wishing to sell their season's catch. This action was taken to help reduce the cost of doing business to our members and the organization. For our members - NO SALES COMMISSION will be collected (usually 5.75% of total sales) for this event). That will save our members about $0.06 on every dollar they receive for their fur sold. It will also reduce the expense to the organization for hosting the event...i.e...facility rental and paying a formal auctioneer. All fur sales that day will be made in Face-To-Face transactions with the Fur Buyers who attend.
