PBS BX/SX Policy - unavoidable statement.

Dear PBS ers,

	The PBS BX/SX is a service to our members. All items are 
donated free of charge with a very few exceptions. Dell Sherk 
volunteers all of the time, work and effort to receive, review, sort, 
pack, and ship the bulbs in a prudent manner. For all intents and 
with a few outside board suggestions, all BX decisions are up to 
Dell. We are all very thankful for this leadership and good deeds.

	This is a fund raising effort on behalf of PBS that allows us 
to keep the elist active. Without the BX there would not be an elist, 
wiki, etc.

	The BX/SX is not a commercial effort and in general all 
offerings are made at an extremely nominal flat rate. Many of the 
items are available from no other commercial source or at a 
considerably higher price than we offer. Our rates reflect the costs 
of postage, shipping supplies and other related materials: these 
inevitably increase on a regular basis.

	Dell decides what donations to offer and when to ship. He has 
the final say.

	Only paid members of PBS may select from items from the BX 
and these are meant strictly for personal enjoyment and not for 
resale, trade or other commercial activity.

	Complaints about the condition of bulbs or seeds should go to 
Dell and Dell will adjust as he judges the situation. Complaints 
SHOULD NOT be posted to the PBS elist as it annoys the other members 
and serves no good end. In most cases BX/SX offerings are made 'as 
is' meaning that Dell is not responsible for the condition of the 
bulbs, germination of seed or any handling errors by the postal 
service. If items come frozen, seeds don't germinate or plants don't 
grow, we are not responsible. Considering the extremely modest 
prices, this is a very small gamble.

	Finally, complaints about Dell's unsatisfactory handling of 
complaints should be directed to the President of PBS and ONLY to the 
President, not the elist.  Any comments about your satisfaction or 
objections should also be directed to the President. My private email 
is 	jwaddick@kc.rr.com

	If you have any questions write to me - NOT the elist.

	I hope these comments are completely clear. It is time to 
stop annoying our donors and non-members by commenting on the BX and 
to them I apologize for this bit of house keeping. Thanks for your 

			Best		Jim W.
