What a great concept - i might also have to find an excuse to change my Christmas/new years accommodation option for my stay in Melbourne. also loving the retail value of AUD$15K. Might even let my green NBG go if someone gave me that much.
Shoot me a PM and for A$15K it is yours :wink:

kudos to the hotels too for getting involved in this idea.

$5.1k with two days left. I wonder how the second auction starting out at $.01 will affect this one.

This is the second time in less than a month that I've watched the same seller run the NBG Green auction up to $4-$5k then pull it with more than 2 days left. Very odd.

Me thinks they are playing the shell game, or they only have a 5K selling limit.

Cold feet perhaps?

Edit: Or maybe the fact that a 2nd NBG showed up to the party.

The children are proceeding to play what's considered a "ball game" with with an object which is not a ball and states that no ball games shall be played. Ironic? Yes. Simple? Yes.

For more information about laws prohibiting ball games see the below link.
http://www.welhat.gov.uk/housing/counci ... /ballgames



Apparently, the info was taken down from the Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council site, here is what it said:

WELWYN HATFIELD BOROUGH COUNCIL
Ball Games
Every summer the council receives a lot of complaints about children playing ball games in public places. This section of our site explains the council's view and offers some advice as to how the issue may be tackled in your area.

Why are ball games a problem?
In general, ball games are a lot of fun for the young people playing them and a source of disturbance for those who are not. Unfortunately, this is something that cannot be changed and, in extreme cases, causes a lot of friction in neighbourhoods that would otherwise be very peaceful.
Children have a right to play as well as a need to enjoy physical exercise and interaction with other youngsters. Play is crucial to a child's development as a social, confident member of society and should be encouraged. However, everyone has a right to enjoy their home quietly, protect their property and have their wishes respected by their neighbours.
Welwyn Hatfield is home to a lot of young people, and also features many open green areas that might seem ideal as a venue for a game. Many of these green areas are on housing estates and there is often only a small distance between greenery and residents' front gardens. It is therefore easy to see why complaints are made.
However, in most of the complaints we receive it is not the playing of ball games that is the problem, rather the manner in which they are conducted and by whom.
The extent to which ball games disturb residents can be changed - the key is to reach a compromise that satisfies everybody.
Very young children playing a game of football with an air-filled plastic ball are less likely to offend because they simply do not have the strength to hit a ball very hard. For example, if an eight-year old accidentally kicks a 'beach'-style ball at a window, annoying though this may be to some, it is unlikely to cause damage.
However, if a twelve year-old hits a leather football, cricket ball or basketball at a car or window there is a risk of damage and any victim would, understandably, be upset.

Action that residents can take
If residents are to be able to live without worrying about their property and possessions, games involving older children and leather or heavier objects should not take place in residential areas.
In a borough such as Welwyn Hatfield, where green spaces are plentiful, the council believes that it is appropriate for older children to go to a nearby field where they can play ball without upsetting others.
Some parents, when faced with this issue state that they are concerned that young people are not safe when away from the house unsupervised. As a solution, in many areas a rota is devised so that concerned parents take it in turns to go to a nearby park or field with the local children. It is also very important to remember that even quiet residential roads are used by cars. If a moving vehicle has to swerve to avoid either a ball or a child the results could be serious.

Tips for keeping the peace
Please make sure that ball games in your neighbourhood:
• use only light, plastic, air-filled balls
• involve young children (under 10s) who cannot play elsewhere
• do not take place after 7 o'clock at night
• do not take place on busy roads where vehicles pass frequently
• show concern for the rights of other residents
• are not played in car parks or garage blocks
Please also make sure that young people and older children in your care:
• go to a field or park nearby to play
• have parental supervision on a rota basis if there are safety concerns
• show an understanding of the way that ball games can affect others

Action that the council can take
The playing of ball games is not against the law and as a result the council will not be installing "No ball games" signs, as these are not enforceable.
Nonetheless, persistent ball games, played recklessly and leading to risk of property damage are nothing less than anti-social behaviour, something that the council takes very seriously.
We take a neutral, balanced view on the issue of ball games and expect residents to work together to reach a compromise. However, in extreme cases of deliberate nuisance we may use our powers to intervene.
If you wish to make a report of serious nuisance please put your complaint in writing to your Neighbourhood Housing Office.

I didn't get it at first either. Once it was explained to me I love it.

Simple brilliance.
